Does it receive FM stations?

Need a job?

It could be fun to work in this neighborhood drug store. It's still around, in spite of all the big chains.

I was lucky enough to know this fine man-- he did a lot for our city. This monument to him is on the trail through Auditorium Shores.

Farmacy for a kale salad

I really enjoyed this kale salad at an eastside restaurant the other day. Maybe if I ate like this all the time, I could lose some weight.

Music to our ears.

Lots of people picked up these sticks and made some tinkling sounds the other day. This item was one of thousands of things you could have bought at the Settlement Home Garage Sale. Proceeds go to their good works.

Out of Focus

 I take a ton of shop window reflection and other reflection pictures. I don't post too many in this forum. But it's theme day and the theme is 'out of focus.' These pictures are so often just that. I especially like it when there is a curved reflective surface somewhere in the picture to repeat the effect. Click here to see what others in the City Daily Photo family have posted for this theme.
