Decorative kale by the post office.

The downtown post office is across 5th Ave from the library.  I bought postcards, and now I'm on my way to the library to return a book-on-cd.

Urban cairn.  We are looking south on 5th from the east side of the street.  The post office is 90 degrees to the right, and the library is just out of view beyond the upper left corner.

Marigold near the food coop. 

The food coop has a decent salad bar.  I like salad bars.  I'm still thinking about the "Food as Medicine" class I took online a few years ago -- they recommended we eat 20 different foods every day.  It's easy to do that if one of your meals is from a nice varied salad bar!

I stopped in Spun, the yarn shop in Kerrytown right next to the farmers' market.  Lots of eye candy, and so many nice things to pet......

This is a cute sweater.

Button closeup!  Hedgehogs.  :-)

Waiting for the bus to take me home -- looking up through locust trees at a partly-cloudy blue sky......

Locust leaves on the ground.  Another person waiting for the bus was wearing a gold and yellow sari -- same colors as the locust leaves.

Miller turns into Catherine when it crosses Main Street.  The bus stop is across Catherine from what used to be the downtown post office (at the corner of Miller/Catherine and Main).

Looking east on Catherine, with Main at my back.  The old post office building is 90 degrees to the right.  The brick building, barely visible at lower left) is on the block with the farmers' market.


Closeup of a different leaf.

I asked for 100 postcards at the post office.  They only had 90; I took 'em.

Ephemeral art.  Chalk is gone the moment it starts raining..........

October 9, 2018


I got this button from Creative Action Network.  I love it.  It says it all..........  I wish they made this in an 11" diameter fabric circle.  I would totally sew it on a shirt or jacket or something...........

(Standard disclaimer — neither I nor anyone I know will benefit if you decide you need one, too. They have dozens of VOTE choices....)

More #postcardstovoters

 As of October 9 I only had six postcards left of my second 100....

Lots of winged critters enjoying the asters and goldenrod.


Moss in the space between two sidewalk squares.

Maple prints on concrete.

This proposal has many good ideas for making voting easier!  Putting a "straight-ticket" option back.  Making voter registration the default when someone gets a drivers' license.  Etc.

Is that all you've got?


Amy McGrath (running for congress in Kentucky) rebuts her opponent.

She's one of the women in the SERVE AMERICA video I posted here a few days ago.

What a great candidate!  I'd vote for her in a heartbeat if I lived in her district.

Ok, I love this one, too.  :-)

Volunteer petunia.  Never surrender!


Zinnias in the beautiful garden at the other end of my old block.


Autumn "crocus."  (Looks like crocus; is not crocus.)

Zinnias in another garden on the way to the farmers' market.

These little guys were so cute and round....  Just wish they didn't have blue tape on them....

It's pepper time!


Zingerman's Bakehouse carrot cake.  Mmmmmmmmmmm................

Someone bought a property near the farmers' market and whacked all the trees.  :-(  This was a nice big serviceberry.

This is just to the lower right of the above.

Spirea.  I don't know if the pale leaves are genetic or environmental.  Or both.  Those white leaves aren't going to be producing much food for the plant, with no chlorophyll......

Wire bear, on luggage rack.

Peppers getting ready to become lecsΓ³ -- Hungarian pepper stew.  Mmmmmm........
