to all my drunken friends who made getting a shot at a bar feel like
a trip to the DMV this week. We'll start with a look at the 337
Memorial Wall as it looked this past week, before it gets painted
over again this weekend.
--- As you're very much aware from all the brightly colored smoke, its the 4th Of July. Or was that yesterday? Remember when holidays were celebrated on the actual holiday and not pushed up one by 90% of the country's workforce? Of course with the usual festivities come idiots who take risks all for the fun of watching shit blow up, and I fully expect to come into my normal job this week to find somewhere in Utah there's at least two mountainside fires. I'm not going to get all Smokey on you about fire safety, environmental problems, damage to homes or any of the other junk you hear this time of year when this topic is brought up. Instead I'll just say that most of the people who cause those fires get busted and pay dearly out of pocket. So to those of you coming back from Wyoming with a package of... "party favors", stay off the damn mountains this weekend. Burnt sagebrush is not a viable alternative to the pollution we already have in the air.
Went walking around the Farmer's Market this morning. As usual they had the fine array of fruits and vegetables, plus a couple of fish tossers... which would take too long to explain, you should just go look at them. Lots of cherries, tasty honey, fresh bread was my favorite. But where oh where is the mushroom dude? I need to skillet some veggies, and I want freshly picked heads to cook. Someone point me in his direction.
