Monday, April 20, 2009 Carlin Territory

The hottest two days in April since 1914 over a hundred in the shade, if you can find any and things begin to look mighty strange

Tourists melt in the heat

These seem to be Rocket Men

Ah, this explains it all.  Carlin in gone, but not forgotten

Taggers had ruined the Maurice Sendak mural on Stanley Avenue, just north of Melrose, so they're redoing it. The local artists, on break, said come back in a week or two, when they're finished.  But, on a blistering hot day, it looks pretty good as is.
