No Smoking

Train Yard

In the '70's, this was one of the sights that would tell me that we'd completed the road trip from Indianapolis to Lima. This view has changed little in the interim.

Green Zebra Heirloom Tomato

I still haven't gotten any good shots of the tomatoes in my garden. I've posted this one mostly for the purpose of visual information.

Titled as such because I think that this photo hearkens to Duran Duran, albeit in an anchronisitic way.

I was quarantined for a month due to Hepatitis A infection in 1982, in a house that looked remarkably like this one.
