Another hot day in St Paul

As expected, today will be HOT and we are enjoying the porch while it is still lovely and fairly cool. 🌞 Today is a special day too; it is my partner’s birthday and I went out early to buy her favorite bakery treats and fixings for homemade ice cream. I know that Jimi over at Herman’s house will approve of that!!

George Floyd

rest in justice

Demand justice. Listen. Learn. Speak with new wisdom. Act.

Wild (Woke) W7th, St Paul, MN

I wanted to share a few images from a 4 mile walk around our neighborhood. W7th strong! The first picture is of two small business owners about whom I have blogged over the years (7th Street Tattoo, 7th Street Barbers).

Also pictured is Shamrock’s Pub and Schmidt Brewery Complex and Keg and Case Market.

A Community Despairs

When will we learn? My cities (St Paul and Minneapolis) are, literally, on fire.

“No justice, no peace.” We demand justice for the murder of George Floyd.

Curfews are in place. Peaceful protests continue. We walked through our neighborhood this afternoon. A very different place. The world has seen the images. Cities around the country are joining in protest.
