September Photo Dump.

Well, I posted the tattoo photos earlier today -- now let's post everything else:


The duck pond on the last day the pools were open




These two ducks are in love. I know I've pointed them out before.












I arrived home one night and was immediately greeted by a loud "thunk" on the hood of my car. It was neighbor cat, coming to say hello.












































Lynne on Rosh Hashana


Anne & David


Blurry Dad








My Allderdice graduation picture, among others. Yes, I was bald. :)












The apple cranberry thing that I helped my mother make. She said it never turned out so pretty, so she made sure I took a picture of it.






The basalt cat I brought home from Egypt in 1989. My Mother's been "borrowing" it ever since.




























Mom




















Vegan cake from Whole Foods






Detail from my parents' David Adickes painting










The potato flowers I planted out front of our building




When there's a Steelers game on TV, my neighbors drag a TV and folding chairs out to the sidewalk, so everyone can watch the game together. Ya gotta love Polish Hill.












My potato flowers again






Muchi in his famous cross-armed pose








A license plate I noticed outside The Co-op one day






The cops outside the pool for G20






I found this sign interesting -- the city is trying some new eco-friendly streetlights and is asking for feedback from residents. Unfortunately, as I stopped to take the picture, some yahoos in a truck decided I was a G20 protester and yelled something involving the word "bomb" at me. :(








The city preemptively removed all of the garbage cans on the South Side and replaced them with cardboard ones.






How is it that I'd never noticed this fountain in Regent Square before?








It's kind of hard to see but I just noticed it today: The first avocado pit that I planted has finally started sprouting!









And *that* is it.

Expect a million more pictures next week since I'm going back to Antioch. Who's coming with me?

You've probably heard enough from me today, but how on earth did you get the avocado pit to sprout? I tried a few years ago using a toothpick-water-in-glass method (as pictured!). Nothing.

SO JEALOUS!

It took a long time.

As you can see, I have several other pits in water in various stages of (not) sprouting. Out of the ten or so that I started in like the spring, a grand total of two have grown enough roots to be moved to soil. And of those two, this is the only one to sprout yet.

Sunlight seems to help. Maybe. I think.
