A New Way of Giving

This image was captured on 3/24 but I'm just getting around to posting it.  Amazing.  I've never seen ATM's advertise a giving campaign for one of the world's disasters before.  You can donate right at the ATM.  Times they are a-changin'.  Kowalski's on Grand Avenue.

Nowhere NEAR here!

Winter has dealt us a harsh blow here in Saint Paul.  In fact while we are usually good friends, winter and I aren't really speaking right now.  So I wanted to post this picture, of warmer weather and tropical remind me that it won't ALWAYS be this cold and snowy and that spring is in fact, out there somewhere, just waiting for me. But I sure wish she'd hurry up!     Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

On a day like today (snowing and near white out conditions) it's best to remember that there are some things in life that just SIZZLE despite the weather.  Like this lady on display at MCAD who looks like her loins are on fire.  YOWZA!  That'll put a little heat into this wintery day!  Minnapolis College of Art and Design

Shave and a Haircut.....Two Bits!

I don't even know the name of this barber shop on Grand Avenue just south of Snelling.  All I know is that my husband finally has a decent haircut AND they have the COOLEST old school barber chairs!

It's Getting CLOSER!!!

The snow is slowly melting off all these delicious bike paths.  Soon the breeze will be in my hair once again.

A Wee Bit O The Irish

I hate to say it folks, but I may have outgrown this holiday.  Amateur night if you ask me.  I prefer to stay in and off the roads.  But I shot these as I was out binge shopping instead of binge drinking.  Enjoy! 
 Right down the street from my house, O'Gara's.  Snelling and Selby.

And, the always popular, shooting while driving.  Don't worry, my eyes were on the road, which may account for the quality of the photographs.  :)

Happy Saint Paddy's Day to ye all!

Ruh Row!

My house kids.  Not one, but TWO trucks to solve our problem.  Nothing 6 grand can't take care of.   All new plumbing for us.  On the up side, Jake and Bob totally rock!!!  Thanks and a BIG shout out to Minneapolis Saint Paul Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning.  Big, BIG fans of them here on Laurel Ave.

Locals Only

If you didn't live here, or someplace like here, you might not even know what an ice dam was, or that they needed steaming...but they do!  Sign on Cleveland at Saint Claire.

Something Shiney

It's snowing here again today.  Sometimes you just need to get distracted by something shiney instead of focusing on the snow and cold.  This art piece hangs from the ceiling at Mall of America and was just fun to stare at for a while.  Like it was raining little crysals and rainbows.  Loved it!

Is it motorcycle riding season yet?  What about bike riding season?  Or even WALKING season?  UGH!  My wallet hurts.  SA on Grand Avenue.

Careful where you dig!

 You never know what's under those enormous piles of snow.  I think it means there's a BEAR stuck in there!  Behind Schmidt Brewery off West 7th.

Boy are we in for it!

When all this melts, I think I'll be buying a boat!  McDonalds, West 7th and Jefferson.
