A traffic accident on Second Street in front of the First Presbyterian Church of Duluth

Photographic evidence indicates that another vehicle impacted this car on the left rear.

I sure hope none was harmed in this traffic accident.

I’ve come back from my dentist’s office.

She told me that I’m taking very good care of my teeth and there are no major problems in my mouth!

What I found under King Manor, near the parking lot entrance

Someone had spelled out the letters MLP with discarded, aquarium stones

What I found outside of the Essentia Health - St. Mary's Medical Center

I wonder why these two Duluth fire trucks were parked outside St. Mary's Medical Center

I bought two desserts at the festival

My yummy Loukoumathes

My yummy Baklava Sundae

What I found when I arrived at the festival

This is their new chapel area displaying the beauty of ancient Christianity!

One of the ethnic Greek, dance teams that preformed for the guests

A view of the Marshall School Gym turned into the central dining hall, watched over by the Greek flag

My second day attending the Taste of Greece food festival

On my way to the festival, I found a plastic pipe with the end covered by a plastic bag on the north side of Pecan Avenue.  Lens cap provided to give a sense of scale.

I’ve never heard of Amberwing before I walked by their offices today.  And, that is one nicely designed sign.

I attended the Taste of Greece Food Festival

A festival sign on Central Entrance Drive

Another festival sign on Rice Lake Road

After a brisk, invigorating walk, I arrive at Marshall School

A nice planter

I usually use the express pavilion to purchase my food

The sign to the indoor exhibits and dining area in the school gym

The festival brochure 

This year, instead of a gyro sandwich, I bought these soft jelly candies instead

A button on my German-made coat was repaired at Duluth’s Security Jewelers

In the 1980’s, my beloved father bought this coat in Germany.  However, the holding ring on the back of the bottommost button, made of plastic, was broken the last time I wore my coat.

Thus, my German coat has sufficient sentimental value for me to invest thirty dollars in repairing that button back to functionality by the experienced craftspeople of Security Jewelers.  I used the word functionality because I’ve never had the opportunity to use that word in a sentence before today.

King Manor meeting notice for August 2017

My notice was made in ComiPo!, an illustration and comic making program that allows you to create images using 3D models and assets.

Moon over an early morning Duluth, Minnesota

Early morning appears to be a good time to drive on Second Street, with little traffic to get in your way.

Friday, June 30, 2017

These are the inspirational words that I live my day-to-day life by.

I pursue my dreams to use my Communication major and Journalism minor to create useful things, earn a comfortable middle class lifestyle, and improve my skill set.  We can all agree that Duluth already has far too many college graduates scooping ice cream at Bridgeman's, selling backpacks at the surplus store, and driving those big yellow school buses.

My modest advertisement for the Taste of Greece Festival - Duluth, Minnesota

An architectural anomaly In Duluth, Minnesota

More work being done to the traffic lights around 9:25 AM.

I foresee this crew will complete their assignments by this afternoon.

The maintenance crew is starting their workday.

Photo was taken in the King Manor skywalk looking at the East Second Street and North Third Avenue East street corner at about 8:15 AM.

Photo was taken at daybreak at East Second Street and North Third Avenue East.

City work crews are repairing the street lights and have taken over the bus stop in front of the First Presbyterian Church of Duluth to do so.  City buses now have to stop in the traffic lane for passengers to get on or off.

My apartment’s front door fob reader is broken.

This fob reader has been broken for about one week and no word from the maintenance workers when the fob reader will be repaired.  This situation is kind of a hassle when you have to walk around the building at night, when it is raining hard, or at night during a hard rain.

On Saturday, I attended Duluth’s Far West Fest and Street Dance 2017.

Event signs on the corner West Gary Street and Commonwealth Avenue.

The one city block event diverted traffic to the side streets.

I like the close-up of the Far West Fest sign.

While the event advertised animals in the Perfect Duluth Day events calendar description, I was hoping to see real ponies.  But, all I got instead were peoples’ dogs and this plastic buffalo.

I bought this cute snow globe for fifty cents and that was the only thing I bought from a vender.

With no special woman to dance with, I came back home before the start of the street dance.
