Standing Together

 The block where I live is very opposed to limiting the freedom to marry whom you choose.  So we are doing something about it!  These signs are popping up all over Saint Paul.

All Inclusive

Saint Paul has fun activities for ALL its people.  Even its Godless heathens. Fairview and University.

P.S. Don't get your knicks in a twist!  I just thought this billboard was funny.  Lighten up people!

Summer Rain

 The view of The Cathedral of Saint Paul is somewhat lost in the rain and mist today. 
Bring it Mother Nature. I love a good summer rain!

If only my lazy cats would do something useful like learning to repair shoes, I might have more respect for them.  Actually, I take that back.  I sort of wish I could be them.  Seems like a pretty sweet life.  Sign in the window at George's Shoe and Skate Repair.  Grand Avenue.

Found another bike shop in Saint Paul.  This one is on Selby Avenue.

I guess a city with as many bikes as we have needs a lot of bike shops.   I'll ring my bell to that.

I just learned that Ramaley's is under new ownership.  It has a new name and consequently, they will be CHANGING this sign.  That makes me a little sad because I adore this sign.  But on the plus side, they will only be changing the front facing to reflect the new name.  The rest of the sign is getting spiffed up with new neon, etc.  Grand Avenue

Segway Situation

Today, while on a bike path, taking a lovely bike ride, minding my own business, a squad of segways sauntered by.  A history tour of sorts.  I've seen them before.  But they still freak me out every time.  Surreal.  Segways.  Mill City Ruins Park.

 Do you suppose this is the fireworks version of  The Walk of Shame?  Left behind in a parking lot, abandoned, no longer desirable?  She gave them everything she had, they enjoyed the show and then just walked away. 

Random parking lot.  Saint Paul.
