Today isn't about what it looks like here.  It's all about what it looks like there.

Love Bug

I walk by this classic Beetle Bug all the time.  It lives just a few blocks from me and is one of my favorite cars in the neighborhood.  As I was walking by it yesterday, I saw a little story in it's hubcap, so I thought I would share.  Enjoy.

If a skeleton and a marshmallow and a jack-o-lantern somehow reproduced, it might look like this thing I saw in Michael's Craft Store in Roseville.  Not your best work Michael's.  Not your best work.

6:00 pm - Clean car
9:00 pm - Car buried under avalanche of leaves

It is common for trees to drop all their leaves at once?  Or did a tree just take issue with this car?
Random neighborhood, Saint Paul.

Look At Me!

This water tower sits at 94 and Vandalia.  I see it on my way to and from the gym.  When I am there in the morning, it catches all this gorgeous morning light and for some reason, my attention.

Maybe I just never noticed in the other places I've lived. but mixing nuts with Candy Corn and selling it in the grocery stores is just weird to me.  But it seems to be a popular treat this time of year.  Minnesota is kinda kooky.  I like that.

From the land of sky blue waters......

.....From the land of pines' lofty balsams,
Comes the beer refreshing,
Hamm's the beer refreshing.
Brewed where nature works her wonders,
Aged for many moons, gently mellowed,
Hamm's the beer refreshing,
Hamm's the beer refreshing.
From across the rippling water,
Through the whisp'ring pines and birches,
Comes the beer refreshing,
Hamm's the beer refreshing.
Comes a call to cool enchantment,
Comes a call to cool refreshment,
Hamm's the beer refreshing,
Hamm's the beer refreshing.
Hints of lakes and sunset breezes,
Dance and sparkle in each glassful,
Hamm's the beer refreshing,
Hamm's the beer refreshing.
You gotta love a bar with a giant Hamms bear on the wall.  Grumpy's.  Nordeast neighborhood.

Minneapolis and The Mississippi River.
I am so lucky to live in such a beautiful place.  We all are.
