dabney bought these strange little magnetic bookends at a yard sale over the weekend.  they seemed kinda useless to me until i realized how freaking hilarious they are.

i won, i won, i won

I won this.

i guess i should say "we" won. friday and i commented on a blog post sponsored by furminator, and we were picked randomly to receive this wearable microfiber towel.

not sure how fri feels about her prize though.

not again

Not again

in spring 2010, some big dummy hit the ugly schoemehl pots in the middle of our intersection.

last night at 2:30 am, we had a repeat performance from another bid dummy.

at least, no one was hurt.

it breaks my heart really.

Boarded up

friday and i walk by this place nearly everyday. i am sure at one point it served this neighborhood as a bakery or a little grocery store. it has been boarded up for ages now, but i have heard skateboarders inside from time to time (scary).

it used to have a very regal crest at the top of it that read "1909," but during the last bad storm, the top of the building just fell apart.


here's another place that stands just a block away from our house. it's a neglected wreck that has been abandoned and boarded up for ages. i bet that cupola (now cemented over) used to be so amazing.
