Ready to begin again

so I officially have Kerry's old job. My boss, and K's former boss, said I almost made him cry as I said something identical to what K said 5 years ago when he hired him. Life is good and G_d is in the details...

Wunders Cemetery

As we approached the Graceland Cemetery entrance this weathered memorial in Wunder's Cemetery caught me eye. It reads: Bertha, William, Frederick, Children of William & Johanna Gruel. The crumbling testament to the loss of 3 children gave pause. All I could find on the web was this link

3952 N Sheridan Facade

We went for a tour of Graceland Cemetery with SnarkAngel and a couple of other friends. A few blocks from the cemetery is a rather nondescript building; that is, until you look up. In my 20 years living in the neighborhood I never noticed these lovelies on the 3948 through 3952 N Sheridan Rd building.

Justice for Trayvon Martin?

So, a black child is gunned down because he has skittles and a can of iced tea in his pocket.... Welcome to MerKa 2012! Overheard: From the shooter, George Zimmerman: "These coons get away with everything!" Ain't it grand?
