War Memorial, with chairs

Some people might think stopping at all these different cemeteries would get redundant. Those people would be wrong. For example, this is the first time I’ve spotted metal folding chairs facing opposite directions in front of a war memorial.

Clarity of light

Hello, and welcome to Which One Was It? day here at the blog.

Look at the photo above, and tell me if you think
1. This was a careful compose-and-wait situation.
2. It pretty much an accident.
3. It was a complete accident.

Center Things

I am thinking of utilizing my spare time to work on a Nebraskan-English dictionary. My late mother-in-law and I could have definitely benefited from such a thing, if you see where I am headed.

Anyway, I’ve already got the first entry:
Nebraskan: center things
English: all those things in the middle of the table

So far, Nebraskan seems a more concise language…

Getting our hopes up

Our summer started out with cool weather and more-than-normal rainfall. But it soon got over that, and now it seems like maybe it’s never rained here. Ever. Not even a drop. And it’s hot, too – at or above 100 degrees for days at a time.

And that makes it seem like maybe this sign is being unnecessarily cruel.

(I am heading shortly to Chicago for a conference, where the high temperatures are forecast to be in the 70s. My work colleague and I had a discussion about packing; neither one of us can recall the right kind of clothes for that sort of weather.)

Post Office: closed for business

If you ever wondered – and I am sure you have! – what the inside of a closed-down post office looks like, then today is your lucky day. They look like this.

Don’t you feel better now?
