UPDATE and a lamp post detail in need of some TLC

UPDATE: I made it better going to and from work. In fact, I went on an after-work field trip in search of fried chicken by catching a bus across the street from work--it let me out in the same block as my destination, then I caught one later on right across the street that took me downtown a little over a block from where I caught my last bus of the homeward commute. I found a fried chicken breast on the side at Pine State Biscuits, as well as a biscuit with butter and strawberry jam. It satisfied my craving but wasn't really what I was looking for--I'll have to keep looking around Portland for it 'cause I'm not gonna be cooking it myownself. After I got near home, I stopped by the Blue Diamond to visit a while and was there long enough to get hungry again, about four and a half hours after the chicken. So, I decided to see if I could satisfy another craving I've been having, for a steak. I ate almost all of a tasty small sirloin strip steak, nice-sized baked potato and a side salad. I haven't done anything like this is weeks. I walked on home and don't feel sleepy yet which is good since it's just after 8 p.m. I'll be walking in the building's hallway over the weekend and on Monday. Thanks for your continued prayers, love, and concern. Y'all mean so much to me!


Earlier this week I noticed this when the streetcar stopped to pick up or drop off. I thought it certainly worthy of a photo to share with you.


Here's a bit of a wider shot.


And one still wider which also includes the sign for the business on the corner. I hope you've enjoyed these three photos on the blog today.

Nice shots! Way to keep your head on a swivel and your eyes peeled. And it sounds like your and having more energy everyday. That is great news for me to read.

Even with the need for TLC, this lamp post has character.
