Unintended Irony

Water... Toledo's greatest natural resource

This mural can be found in the Citiwalk tunnel connecting the TARTA stop with One Seagate and Imagination Station downtown.

I know the Maumee River wasn’t always spic-and-span, so maybe this was more of an ideal than a reality even back when the mural was painted. Now, though, the focus of the public is less on the Maumee and more on Lake Erie itself.

Complimentary Bluefin Upgrade

Honestly, it was almost a shame to get an unexpected bluefin upgrade on this particular roll, where I didn’t feel I could properly enjoy it. The exquisite texture of the tuna was overshadowed by everything else going on (mainly the cream cheese).

Still, though, I’m grateful to be such a regular that I get upgrades like this! My once-a-week sushi habit is paying off… sort of.

Spinning Self-Portrait

My son took his Lumix (the one Fake Aunt Sheryl gave him last year, along with the Team Umizoomi bag she made for it) to school for show and tell last week, and came back with several intriguing photos, including this one. Fun to see his classroom from his perspective — and to see his attempts at artsy photos.

He also came back with a camera lens that was cockeyed from a classmate obviously dropping it on the floor. Luckily, I was able to get it realigned with a little elbow grease, and my son still learned an important lesson about who you trust with your stuff.
