This afternoon I left a Shop ‘n Save where I don’t usually shop. I saw these eyeballs staring out of the dark frames.
The building is unoccupied. Just thinking about why they were painted there.
Freeport Road in Aspinwall. All traffic stopped. No young geese splatted on this busy road today. Goose is such a funny word.
And to make today’s post slightly more interesting check out TheFreeDictionary

Laura is the one who spotted this parking spot. We were waiting for a taxi.
She asked, “Did you photograph the Dog Parking? and I said, “HUH?” but there it was. Thanks, La. Good find.
Seems everyone took their dog right inside the shopping area. Park your dog at King Cross
Today’s idea for a post was Laura’s. She’s the one who spotted the bottle of OJ by the Halloween candy display.
“This should be a blog.” she said, when we came across another example.
Once you start noticing the items out of place, they are EVERYWHERE!
Look as you go around a store and you will find your own examples.
People change their minds when they shop, sure. But placing a refrigerated item on a shelf across the store?
At least take it to the register and state, “I decided to not buy this after all” and it can be reshelved appropriately.
And then there are those who litter the shelves. With garbage.
After Christmas I was in the Strip District with Matthew and Natalya. We had coffee at La Prima and lunch at Sunseri’s. A little window shopping, popped into the kitchen store and then Wholey’s to see the fish.
One “must-see” store is Mike Feinberg’s on Penn Ave. Right now you can stock up on Leprauchan supplies. Or Mardi Gras masks and beads.
You name it- they have it. Postcards and old school candy, too.
This is what we saw up front. Presidents’ Day supplies. There were tons of New Year’s hats and horns, pre-packaged party supplies for any number of guests.
Penn Mac is what everyone calls this place.
While I was in the Strip Districtat the Polish Deli, procuring Pierogies for Polish Christmas Eve, I walked down Penn Avenue.
This crowd caught my eye.
Shot through the glass with a cell phone as I opted to leave the camera home while I ran last minute errands around town.
All their cheese is excellent.

One more gallery of New York City. I’ve been home a week.
By looking at the photographs, I’m still enjoying the time I had with my sister.
I was a tourist for sure!

Her view from the shopping cart.
Maura (who’ll be 6 next month) captured her Pap while shopping.
With her mother’s phone. They sent it to me. I asked if I could blog it.
Good one Maura. Thanks for sharing Erika. Here’s the guest blog of the day.
I thought she did well to freeze a moment in time- Saturday afternoon at Costco, after the swim meet.
Looking good, Pap!
Whether it be flowers in a garden, a rainbow in traffic, or colorful cake mixes on the store shelf.
The color is what caught my eye!
Unsure about actual consumption, though. Here’s how I came to see these boxes of cake mix……
After school, I drove down to the Waterfront to get gas, stock up on provisions. Lunch items to take to school.
Target was right there and I needed more wonderful 8GB Flash Drives that are still at a low, low price. The ones they keep by the checkout line so you can load up as you head out the door. Must be an old shipment as the ones up front are two dollars cheaper than the ones in the electronic section in the back. (Hope I didn’t clue them in and they change the price!)
Now you might already know if you follow the blog, I really don’t like to
eat anything blue
(with the exception of fresh blueberries)
but those fakey blue raspberry popsicles?
Just looking at blue food/icing gives me a shudder down my spine.
But if you need to bake a Smurf cake, the Blue Suede mix might be your answer.
I can definitely see some of these colorful cake mixes as the basis for art/photography projects.
And from what I read on Charm City website, “Our inspiration comes from everywhere: art, fashion, fabric, furniture, architecture, landscapes, science, music, and history.”
