Today And Yesterday and Yester-Yesteday

Well, Monday I walked up to the library. I checked out Stranger In A Strange Land to read again, since I've been telling everyone how awful it was. It seems to have improved since I read it last in the 60s.

Some guy locked his bike to the railing on the stairs, ignoring the bike rack. What's up with that?

That bike in the bike rack has the front wheel locked (with a little CABLE!) to the frame, but it is not locked to the rack!

I then went over to the chocolate shop to check on chocolate Easter rabbits, but they were closed. I THEN walked over to the train store, but they were out of earth paint. So I walked home.

Yesterday I rode to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription. I also picked up some rocks along the way.

It rained last night. But it was dry today.

Today I rode to the pharmacy AGAIN to pick up yet another prescription. I again picked up some rocks. One of them was pretty big!

Along the way I wandered around some back streets, and saw these pretty flowers.

How prettily someone has decorated this area, for all to enjoy! Much nicer than a sidewalk!

Somehow in these wanderings I've managed to get the odometer up just over 20 miles. One would think, being on vacation, that it would be higher!

I need to try and grow roses. Not the time to start now, I believe. They always look so pretty in other people's yards. How are the sunflowers going?
