The day started off well…

May 2, 2008


Here are some nice pictures taken this beautiful morning on my commute through West Philly. The house is the Dominion Sisters Convent on 36th & Baring.


The old advertisement is near the Dock Street Brewery at 50th & Willows. I’ll have to send it to the Philadelphia Ghost Signage Project.

You know when, just before they pave a road they scrape off the top layer of asphalt (macadam for some of you Pennsylvanians)? When you see it you try not to imagine FALLING on it, thinking about how rough those jagged edges would feel on your bare thigh? Yeah, that’s right. I fell on it. Out in the burbs, took a turn too sharply, front wheel hit some gravel and I went down. It wasn’t has bad as it coulda been but I’ve got some road rash and I’m SORE.

I’ll be taking it SLOOWW on the way back today.

  1. That’s a bad kind of road rash, man. That stuff is ROUGH. Sorry to hear about the spill…but the pix are cool.
