indeed, we are.

Oh, no reason I'm posting this photo during baseball playoff season. No reason at all.

Well, yes, I'm worried that hopes are dim for a sequel to When Chicago Ruled Baseball, which I'd just checked out of my local library but won't start till I finish the baseball book I'm reading now.

Enigmatic sign seen on this week's trip to Milwaukee, on the marvelously-rich-in-photo-opportunities area of Vliet St. between 12th and 14th, a little west of the former Pabst brewery. I could do a whole post or Flickr set on the furniture stores there. I photographed a furniture store sign with a friend on an earlier trip, but he didn't want to walk and take photos in this area (or at least not with one of his expensive cameras), so I went on my own. I've made this image my "buddy icon" on Flickr, at least for baseball season, perhaps for election season as well.
