It Would Have Been So Boring

Yes, I rode to work today.

And, I rode home.

I rode past Busch Stadium. St. Louis is hosting Cincinnati tonight. Go Cards!

Then out Chouteau Ave.

Onto Manchester Ave. and into the Grove Neighborhood.

On the far west side of the Grove are these two beauties. They sit waiting. They have seen better days, and I hope they see better days. There are so many wonderful beautiful old buildings here in St. Louis and too many of them are just waiting just like these two.

As I near Maplewood traffic picks up. Or, perhaps because the traffic lights again become more frequent, it simply backs up.

Dirty windscreen, oh well.

I needed to do some banking. My bank has a branch in a Walmart. This branch is open seven days a week and until 7pm Monday through Friday. I like that. Tonight I parked by the cart return near the door. I had a visitor. I told him he was all wet. I may have offended him, because he didn't stick around long. I barely got a picture of him before he flew off.

One of my neighbors just bought a car from this dealership. This dealership and the dealership where I bought my car are owned by the same people. She got a Volvo. I got a Yaris. Can you guess which one of us is the attorney?

A little longer ride than usual and a slightly different route. I'm so glad I wasn't driving. It would have been so boring.
  • 50F/10C with a few clouds and no wind for the ride to work.
  • 69F/21C with a few more clouds for the ride home.

  1. I agree about those two buildings. St. Louis is wealthy in beautiful architecture. Terrible to see any of it decay.
