Bus Stop


I just arrived in Chicago (2100hrs CT) but except for the walk from the station to the hotel I haven't been out and about yet.
This is a shot I managed to get in Seattle while I killed a couple of hours waiting for the train.

Harlequinesque


Isn't it great that there are at least a few people with an original fashion sense.
It makes life a lot more interesting.

Trivia


It's not a coincidence that a 60s rock/folk/country/or whatever band and a steam roller have the same name.
The steam roller came first, probably by 50 years or more.
The band purloined the name and got away with it.

Pulp Fiction


To provide a break in the monotony I'm now taking occasional shots in Pulp Fiction Books in addition to MacLeod's Books.
Heaven forfend anyone should be bored by this #@%^*!! blog.

I'm off to Chicago by train.
The blog should keep chugging along.

Vaisakhi ....

... always draws a crowd, but this year was nuts.
Apparently the celebration in Surrey next week draws even bigger crowds.
I'm staying home.

Big Yellow Taxi

Sunday Feature - Another Place, Another Time
My first trip to New York, on a Greyhound from points west and via Florida, was in 1972 or '73.
If I think about it long enough I might remember whether it was the Fall of one or the Spring of the other.
