Views of the Neighborhood – Limestone

You know how hard it is to find neighborhood subjects during a pandemic? Well, real hard. It is a good thing we have our party bus and plenty of bloody mary’s today, cause today we are going to go look at limestone. I know, I know. Not the most exciting thing for sure, but we […]

Views of the Neighborhood – Greenbelt

Today we are going to check out the Greenbelt and see the effects of the recent rainfall. Since we can walk, we’ll leave the bus at home. Here is a margarita in an insulated to-go container. All set? Let’s go. To start, we can see the flowers are in bloom. Beautiful vinca. A good sign. The […]

Views of the Neighborhood – COVID Accomodation

With nothing better to report in the neighborhood, I decided to go out and do a personal investigation of how restaurants, stores, and small eating places are handling the COVID situation. This is not a Pulitzer Prize-worthy post, but hey, beats a blank page. So I got the bus. We have a keg of margaritas, […]

Views of the Neighborhood – Potpourri Part Two

Views of the Neighborhood – Kinetic Sculptures

Views of the Neighborhood – The Outing

The time finally came for me to go on an outing that was not doctor related. I know this may not sound like a big deal, but I was very happy to leave the neighborhood just for a little while. I hope you don’t mind that I’m dragging you along. Our first stop is..wait for […]
