What I found outside of Gene’s Body Shop.


This is the first time I’ve seen a hi-rail truck parked so close to my apartment building.


This chunk of rubber over the railroad wheel appears to be some type of mud flap.


Super Duty Ford trucks are so macho!


There are no dings, dents, or rust on this truck.  So, the auto mechanics of Gene’s Body Shop must have finished working on it, waiting for the owners to claim it.


The only company name anywhere on this truck is a small CN - Canadian National Railway logo.

Window sealing calk graffiti on a Duluth sidewalk


This graffiti is next to the entrance to Gene’s Body Shop at 28 North 2nd Avenue East.  I’m not sure what name or word this graffiti spells out.

While cleaning my apartment, I found one example of my childhood art.


Based upon the ship that was once often seen in the Twin Ports harbor, the Incan Superior, a railroad car ferry, a flat decked rail car carrying ship, was the perfect subject for my childhood obsessions with both boats and trains.  However, I have no idea why I named my ship the Inco Supper.

This is an undated article about the University of Minnesota, Duluth Anime Club.


I remember going to these club events as a UMD student.

Spring cleaning in my nice apartment


Getting some of my still useful, yet unneeded things out of my apartment and then giving these to my apartment’s thrift store.

A broken picture window at King Manor


Last Sunday night or early Monday morning, one of the ground floor, north side, of the Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) office picture windows was broken by unknown person or persons.


A maintenance worker is inspecting his temporary wooden wall.


Let’s hope that these maintenance workers can seal the window frame before the rains begin sometime today.
