I went into the Bay Area to have lunch with a friend the other day. I never like to go there. I think about if the "Big One" (earthquake) hits while I am there. The bridges will be damaged and closed. Then how will I get home?
Martinez has a lot of shops in it's small downtown area and we walked around in a few of them.
These antique shops are packed to the rafters with junk. Way too much stuff for me to take in all at once. I get easily overwhelmed. Being at eye level this toy truck caught my eye. I immediately thought of the little boy this once belonged to and how he must have spent hours in the backyard playing in the dirt. I did. I wonder where that little boy is now, all grown up.
I just had that infernal iPhone with me to take pictures with and I never hold it steady enough. Many of the pictures came out blurry. This was the better of the lot taken in a back room of the shop. I guess people collect most anything.
A couple shops later my eyes and ears drew me in. Music from It's a Beautiful Day was playing. I haven't heard that album in way too long of a time.
The lady had a really nice display of music from the 60's and 70's.
Being a big Bob Dylan fan this really captured my attention. She had this nice black and white photo I had never seen before mounted on black board with the lyrics to License to Kill typed out below.
Then I saw another with the lyrics to Subterranean Homesick Blues. I don't think they were for sale, just for looks but now I am wondering. Maybe there was a price tag on the back.
The photographs were much nicer than my shaky blurry iPhone pictures show here. Maybe I was just nervous about getting back over the bridge onto the North Bay shore safely before the Big One struck.
If you don't remember It's a Beautiful Day, click on this and see if this tune is not familiar.
Question: I set up my posts the day before and schedule them to come on in the middle of the night so my Australian followers can see then early in their day. Well lately the posts have not showed up until like 6 or so hours later in the morning. I've looked into this on the Blogger Forum and it seems that this has happened before with a number of people. Anyone experience this and have a solution? I am changing the time for this post and will see what happens.
