Postcard of the Day

Today's Postcard of the Day is in honor of the post I did over at vintage_ads, where today people are posting ads with busses (along with ads with fads).  As I show there, I had the Matchbox of this bus as a kid.  As I didn't say there, one time I was holding it up outside Great Aunt Louise's, on The Paseo in KC, and a bus just like it drove by behind it.  :)

Bow Tie Tuesday

I'm not throwing away my shot.  I'm not throwing away my shot, but I don't have much of a sense of where to aim.  Yet, like my country, I'm old and tired, and figure what the fuck.

Today is the first time in all my years that I've ever negotiated a salary, in keeping with gender stereotype.

But there's a bow tie, in bucking it.

So far so good with the new schedule.  After a walk with Peter at Furstenburg this late-aft/eve, I've spent much of the evening on work (and on that salary thing).  Now I want a full measure of leisure.  And I'm pretty much never ready to go to bed at a "reasonable" hour.

We'll see.
