The Saturday Picture Show, August 29, 2015

Here's a great New Yorker cover that shows why I prefer using a camera to a paintbrush.  "Take a picture; it lasts longer!"
This is the burned-out ruins of the former Chapterhouse pub in Ithaca, NY.  They had a fire in April.  They used to serve popcorn with your beer (you know why!) and some of the kernels they had stored have sprouted since the fire.  I hope they reopen the bar and serve popcorn from some ears that grow right here!
Everyone is wondering where the huge sunflower fields will be this fall.  I'm keeping both eyes and both ears open; I'll let you know. Last autumn, everyone went out to Jarrettsville Pike to see that big field, but a wise farmer rotates his crops.
 Speaking of autumn, it won't be long now until we see this....
 And then, it won't be long until we hear this!
This is why Baltimore MD is the best place to live in all the world. Here are the amazing crabcakes from the splendid Friendly Farm Restaurant.  You'd have to taste them to believe them.
This is part of my home town, Towson, MD.  The big building is now the Senior Center; it used to be the elementary school and before that, the high school. The building to the right with the pyramid roof was the old high school before this one; it's now the county Office of Human Resources.  The newest high school, the one I attended so frequently (!) is down the road a bit, but every bit as dear to my heart.
Here are two of the great legends of Alabama football - the great coach, Paul "Bear" Bryant, and the great quarterback Joe Willie Namath.
