This blog is all about windows, shopping, and window shopping.

Glass Block Foyer

We call our entry way The Foyerplace. We originally had our foyer window made out of glass blocks. Six 12 inchers in the middle with 24 six inchers around the outside. We have subsequently replaced this with a new window better suited to handle the winter condensation issues. I'm glad we snapped a few photos of the glass blocks before replacement day. Today is Dad's birthday, even tho he's moved on. Dr. Miles used to use glass blocks for full-wall shelving systems. At our home, that tradition continues.

Elvis Sighting

For fans of Elvis the Pelvis, let it be known there was an Elvis sighting in downtown Fargo on February 27, or as they call it on Maui...Tsunami Tsaturday! Elvis looked to be in good form but was not available for any questions or autographs.

Bra Dog

This little guy caught my attention as I strolled through the mall. What might the connection be between pink dogs and lace bras? I'm not saying it's a weird combination, but rather the connection is perhaps not overtly obvious to innocent mall walkers.

Sun Fun

What great use of sun light coming through a window. This is the southernly view out of a downtown Fargo health food store. It is always a delight to see nice stained glass aglow. There can never be too many stained glass windows in this world. Is southernly even a word? What about aglow?

Diamond Grande

In the window of a jewelry store in the mall was the largest diamond in the world. It was literally the size of a football. This diamond is going to make someone very happy. If they find out it is not a real diamond, then it will make that same someone very upset.

Since when did we decide that this is an attractive look? Are these grandchildren of the Headless Horseman? During these tough times of international difficulties, it seems this look should not be politically correct. Or is it just me? I like the clothes. Don't get me wrong. Let's sing a song.

Say Cheese

Deli is short for Delicatessen
but I think it should be short for Delicious.
My wife and I both agree
that we like cheese better than candy.

I don't mind the rat race
but I could do with a little more cheese.

First Temptations

It is no accident that the bakery is one of the first things you see upon entering the grocery store. I always like to swing by for the free coffee and doughnut hole(s). Zen Joke: What do they do with all the extra holes that they cut out of doughnuts? Answer: They tie them together to make fishnets.

Elf Shopping

My first post on this new blog will apparently be about window shopping...for an elf? It is expecially (extra especially) nice when it's a father shopping for his own son. If you have too many elves, couldn't you put some on the shelves?
