Black and White Rusty Metal Utility Cover

Utility Hole Cover Graveyard

Wondering around the edges of the old/new Red Cedar Golf Course/Project found this pile of old utility hole covers and the collars to support them.

The Capital Casting Co. is a name I’ve not seen before (mostly I see ones from East Jordan MI). I suspect this is an older cover.

A Cloudy Day in Lansing

Had a meeting down in REO Town. Walked from Michigan Avenue down to my meeting.

State Holiday tree and three oversized ordainments.
Tall thin pine tree.
Bike in rack with missing back wheel and seat.  Sign in background: Premises Under Video Surveillance
Not sure this increases my confidence in CCTV as a security measure.

Walking Home Last Night

Left work a few minutes early last night and enjoyed as I walked across the MSU and caught a bus at a stop on the far side of campus.

Shadow Garden

Between splitting wood, cleaning the fridge (mostly by eating leftovers), and masterfully avoiding writing Christmas New Year cards I never actually left my house/yard yesterday. I did find some nice shadows in the back garden.

Deck rail shadows on deck floor boards.
I liked the crisscrossing of the shadows across the gaps in the floor boards.
Shadow of wire fence on side of porch.

There was even a shadow photographer.

Christmas Decorations are Up

Decorative frog tree topper.
Lacking an official tree topper this fierce frog has the honored spot. I think he might have been a birthday present from Leigh Ann?
