the fun-filled no-newspaper friday












something squawked (might have been a child) around 5:45 this morning and i couldn't get back to sleep, so i slipped downtown for an early coffee and a new york times before the daily chaos began. no times, though. i said, "what? you couldn't possibly be sold out already." the guy behind the counter rolled his eyes and said, "the times delivery guy thinks he has tenure so he likes to sleep in." what a curious choice of job for a late sleeper! well, i got the coffee, anyway. gorgeous day here, healthy children once again, a nice walk around town watching people and looking at the little chalk trees drawn all over the city for earth day. quite honestly just enjoying the moments this evening and not much more...

Newspaper delivery guy who sleeps in. HA! Who's next, the doughnut guy? Sacrebleu! Well, at least the coffee dude is old reliable.

Love the ravens! And WHO, do you think, is back there? Aren't you just a little bit curious?

the more i see photos the more i love Lawrence, Kansas... so many interesting and fun things to observe... the visitor's center ought to refer people to your blog :)

i just love that a newspaper guy CAN sleep in and still be the newspaper guy...

That window drawing is so nice. just the idea of it is great:) love your photos!

BT said...

Oh what a wonderful idea, to nip off into town for coffee and no newspaper! Love the artwork around the place. We'd have to travel 8 miles to get to the nearest town, so can't really do that quick jaunt. I love the photos. I want to live there!
The word verification is 'fockdo'. Sounds a bit rude!

My moments are more enjoyable when you share your moments - and esp. these snippets of life.
