Just a super last minute quick visit to Wisconsin, with no time to see any friends. But got two hours in Madison, a day or two near Milwaukee, and otherwise in the country (Hustisford, Beaver Dam). I saw deer and red fox! But no pictures of those.
Instead, a picture of the Dr. Evermor birds on Paterson Street:
And had our normal lunch at Harmony Bar of walnut burgers, hot chips with blue cheese, and Madison beer.
Also got to experience some really terrible Milwaukee road construction (seriously, Milwaukee, you can’t close all of your freeway onramps and then have all your detour signs point to also closed onramps. Thankful that I like to get to the airport obnoxiously early or we would have missed our plane!)
But also got to watch a family wait patiently for the red light and then cross the road safely:
Portland Art Museum is doing a show on tattoos and has a flickr set you can look at it. Very interesting. I’m always curious about how people mark themselves – and some of them I really have a hard time understanding (but they are not directed at me, of course, so that’s fine). Some beautiful art here.
