Savvy traveller

unnamed

I discovered the traits of this savvy seed traveller via an accidental close encounter with my gloves the other day. The pointed tips slide easily into clothing and the barbed tips make it tough to get them back out. Very effective and pretty cool upon closer inspection!

Memorial

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

About 4 and a half years ago, a horrendous fire destroyed the building at 30th Avenue and East Lake Street.  Six people, including three young children, died in that fire, and this memorial remains on the grass planted where a building housing the Poodle Club for decades, and later McMahon’s Pub, with apartments on the second floor, stood for nearly a century.  Early coverage from the Star Tribune is here.
