This one's called "Goin' to the Chapel."
The securely-fastened words are as permanent as death and shall not be removed ever, so as to preserve people's memories. Beckoning "c'mere" snowman of ampersand.

Ha ha re: chapels, English-speaking Americans re-use way too many of the same words for di…

It was kind of embarrassing while it lasted, people ought to be prepared to be willing to admit.

Slosh slosh!, thanks to you folks at B&M for your hard work. I feel that these big sewage delivery trucks ought to be given the same kinds of traffic light preemption devices that ambulances and copcars have, so that they can speed on out of town as quic…

"The colours don't feel vintage," I heard somebody hiss phlegmily. Those kinds of metal door panels are intended to discourage breaking-&-entering and to conceal nudity.

I hate to think of an elaborate jellomold dessert accidentally sliding off its platter and falling into the grass, after somebody worked so hard to prepare it.

Downtown Manitowoc Wisconsin "Manitowoc Authentic" promo lightpole banner, with its squiggle that is both an M and a W.
I notice where the yellow "Manitowoc Authentic" lightpole banner is partway blocking people's views of the authenticity it says it wants us to think about.

Or maybe it's the lightpole banners themselves that we're supposed to meaninglessly identify as…

Fluttering seagull feathers!
I hope I won't catch birdlice from breathing them in.

U.S. shopping malls are attractants to seagulls almost as much as seas are, and I always thought it was because of the delicious litter that americans scatter around in parking lots, HOWEVER MAYBE I…

A vision of Lake Michigan & adjacent plantae of Manitowoc.
Manitowockers / Manitowocois / Manitowocoise, they refer to Lake Michigan as their "Manitowocean."

I got a kick out of these lakeshore greenery; they are 100% unique to their particular ecosystem.

The U.S. embraced this style of architecture. At the right-hand side of the bldg, the diagonally decorative upward extension of the area of Stone Look -- all the way to the rooftop! -- is a frill that would probably be forgone nowadays. The large "LORDS…

They're huge! It is an effective gimmick, because it is a picture I'll remember everytime I meet a person named Kyle.

Proportions of anatomical parts of national bird, at a prime space I saw downtown.
If you don't want to trust my claim that it's prime space, look at the sign in the window. Words do have meanings!

I love the national bird!, and the symmetry of his wings, but I prefer heart shapes to star shapes. A dance of stars above a head implies…
