You say tomatoes, and I say salad!

My first two Sungold tomatoes are ready for a salad, and there are bunches and bunches more to come. Mmmm.

George's novel is here.

George Paris was signing and selling his new novel, A Distant Home, today at The Blackbird. You can get one at Barnes & Noble if you missed it here, and his next engagement will be at the Topeka-Shawnee County Public Library, July 25th, at 1 p.m.

More Robins in Residence

The baby robins are here. I thought they were because of the way the parents were behaving; day before yesterday I got a glimpse of them.

End of Center Building

I'm posting a series of pictures of the Center Building on the old Topeka State Hospital grounds. It is in the process of being demolished (they are gutting the inside now). I have a series of color pictures and a series of B&W, and may have some sepia-tone at some point.

Since I have so many, I'm only going to post a few here. The rest will be in my Picasa album
End of Center Building

This particular picture (above)--I was watching the workers when I saw first one, then two, and finally five vultures soaring over the building. It was amazing. It felt very much like they were attending the death.
