Pretty picture

Got a flat tire on my bike. Took the bike home on a bus that is not my usual bus. As I was walking my bike home from the bus stop, over a bridge, I saw this scene. Ooh! Had my camera so I took the picture. Would not have been on the bridge at all if my tire hadn't flattened.

Moment of silence

Just wanted to note that it was about a week ago that a bunch of my pals and co-workers at the Pioneer Press were tossed overboard. I miss them. And I'm not as good at their jobs as they were.








My best wishes to you all. You will do great, but I'm sorry to see you go. Thanks for your years of excellent work.

Swing set

There have been some innovations in swing sets since the last time I paid attention. There's the basic strap swing. Uncomfortable, but it does adjust to any size of bottom. The baby swing looks like a diaper in shape and a bit like a used diaper in color. And finally, the bucket-seat style -- so you are able to swing in back-supporting comfort.
The baby swing comes with a handy Warning/Disclaimer for you to read to Baby -- perhaps as a lullaby.
