First Time for the Big Window

So, I was feeling pretty great about our Canned Acme window with the beautiful furniture creating a stunning backdrop for the cans... So much so, that I wanted to keep it up until our Dog Days of Summer pet window. Then the usual vandalism that happened after the bars closed Friday night. It's funny - when ever this happens and we file a police report, the cops always say "Yeah, this happens all the time. There's no way to catch them". ???????

Canned Acme in the mail

Share photos on twitter with Twitpic

Acme donated three cans of special A2skatepark Canned Acme for a raffle prize from the Art Fair booth of the skatepark. One winner wanted her can sent to her and Trevor took it upon himself to address the can and mail it - hilarious! ...And a bargain at only $2.92 to mail.

Vespa A2 Totally Rocks!

I took the old Vespa in for some maintenance and got to hang out with the super cool folks at Vespa A2. The place is stuffed full of scooters and scooter related merch including cute wallets and purses, nifty riding jackets and fashionable helmets of all styles. Makes me wish I could start all over buying new stuff...
The ride back to work on my newly revamped ET4 was glorious! Viva la summer!
