We are off to Chicago for a week of baseball, railroading, music, and a family wedding. If you need a Friday cat, you can click here.
Nervous Nellie's, who serve great Swedish toast and strong coffee, has moved to the corner of NW 56th St and 17th Ave NW. Check her out!

Over at the new house they went for grass implants, the horticultural equivalent of hair implants and about as weird looking.
No, it's not the Nebraska prairie. It's the roof of the Ballard Library. It's a "green" roof, covered with sod and plants. It filters the rain water and keeps the building cooler. We'd put one atop Ballard Avenue Tower but the roof's too steep. Green roofs work best when they look like the Nebraska prairie, not the Duquesne Incline.
If you need a splash block or a wastebasket, get yourself over to 28th Avenue NW before these are gone!
The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)
Slow down you move too fast
You got to make the moment last
Just kickin’ down the cobble stones
Lookin’ for fun and feelin’ groovy
Hello lamp post
I’ve come to watch your flowers growin’
Ain’t-cha got no rhymes for me?
Got no deeds to do
No promises to keep
I’m dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me
Life I love you
All is groovy
