Two Sixty-Fourths

Screen Shot 2017-04-10 at 8.36.03 PMSince my last post, two people residing in this house have had their 64th birthdays.

I will not name names.

And . . . since nothing is really going on in the world (ha ha) and I’m supposed to be packing right now for a flight to Arizona, I’ll get right to the photos. Here are my photos du jour for weeks #13 and #14 of this crazy alternative-universe year we’re living in.


(3/26/17) I love the “cactus” with lights on it.


(3/27/17) Lake Nokomis, Minneapolis


(3/28/17) Loggers Trail Golf Course with Steve, Jerry, and Roger


(3/29/17) Seems like we’ve been having Easter for quite a while, already, and we’re not even getting close yet.

(3/30/17) This is a screen shot from a video I shot today for my friend — and Principal of Eagle Heights Spanish Immersion Elementary in Eden Prairie — Hernan Moncada.  Kindergartener Jack  won a raffle to be “Principal for a Day”.  One of the stops on his tour of the district office was to meet the district Superintendent Curt Tryggestad. (Jack wouldn’t share his sucker with the Supe.)



(3/31/17) Bagu Sushi — nice to have this place in the ‘hood.

Version 2

(4/1/17) Lake Harriet.


(4/2/17) This is my photo-a-day project, so I make the rules. Karen captured my day-after-birthday breakfast at the Birchwood Cafe in the Seward neighborhood of Minneapolis.


(4/3/17) It’s a cold, drizzly day.  Don’t fall in the river, I say.

Version 2

(4/4/17) Theeeey’re back . . . . .


(4/5/17) St. Anthony, now part of Minneapolis, is across the river from downtown. Now nearly forgotten as an independent town, it predates the city of Minneapolis. There are still a few of the old buildings standing along Main Street, including the Pillsbury “A-Mill” in the distance.


(4/6/17)  Peet Cedermark — defiant, proud, unashamed.


(4/7/17) Peonies in the backyard are also defiant, proud, and unashamed.


(4/8/17) Outdoor roller derby?
