Zen Monday: #174


Zen Monday's the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the picture's about. There's no competition, no right or wrong. We're here to have fun. (Some Zen Mondays are more fun than others.)

I look for something worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. All of the above, if I'm lucky.




From the PIO:

A compilation of all information about last week’s windstorm and subsequent recovery can be found at this new page on the city of Pasadena website:

No one said that building the Transcontinental Railroad was going to be easy.

I think they should leave it like that. Far more interesting and the kids will enjoy playing on the log. Monument and play ground combined.

This reminds me of an old story I read when I was a kid about Kate Shelley, a train, and a damaged bridge:

Oh, funny today! You all are funny!

I should give prizes. But then it would be too...
competitive?

Let me sell a few more of those overpriced calendars and just watch me.

Anybody know a good local printer?
