There is a German insult, schweinehund, pig dog. What a wonderful, visceral expression: you swine, you filthy dog. On my way to take pictures at the Missouri Botanical Garden on Sunday, I stopped a few blocks away at two intriguingly named stores, side-by-side: The Bug Store and Gringo Jones. In the summer, their wares spill out onto the sidewalk, calling to passers-by. Gringo Jones has almost any weird thing you could imaging for your lawn or garden. However, only one of these two is for sale.
TOMORROW: I almost never do this.
TOYNBEE TILE BULLITEN:
I discovered a fourth Toynbee tile in the pavement of downtown St. Louis last weekend!See my obsessive posts of May 7, May 8 and May 9.This one is the most deteriorated of the group.It is located in the same crosswalk as the one I posted on May 9 (7th and Market), on the other side of the street.The mystery continues, as do my doubts about my own powers of observation.How could I have missed seeing these for so many years?
