Who’d A Thunk It?

In yesterday's post, I mentioned Morrissey's meat smoker, and I'm pleased to report I may have actually found it: I suppose I should be annoyed that this bike rack in now inaccessible unless you're willing to risk third-degree burns, but mostly it just makes me happy to see people taking the streetscape into their own...

Garage Days

Firstly, I apologize for my spotty presence this week. However, as the school year winds down the child party scene starts heating up, and therefore I've been busy flitting from fĂȘte to fĂȘte.
