Those Canada geese that lacked the sense

to fly south don't have much open water left.

The scrappy cottonwood of the urban river

That's the Minneapolis skyline in the background, in case you didn't know.

There are a lot of things I like less

than the experience of walking on a condemned bridge on a beautiful winter day.

Clearing a skating rink on the river

That's what John was up to this cold morning.

It was quiet in Marietta the other day

I think it's usually quiet there.

A regal outpost on the outskirts of Montevideo

Morning sun, casting long shadows on the frozen Mississippi

And here is the haul

from the aforementioned run to the food shelf. I know it looks like a lot but PLP's take was nothing compared to the old Russian lady we saw digging into Pastor Paul's eggnog supply. She must have made off with 40 quarts of the stuff.

I shot this image while giving a pal a ride to Pastor Paul's food shelf.

So Rob took a break from the unending basement remodeling project at his increasingly swank south Minneapolis abode. After stepping outside and sampling the winter weather, he mused on the subject of the Arizona vacation he canceled to pay for the new bathtub.
