    No, just 50-something degrees, cold, windy, foggy, pretty much

    I’ve always been so intrigued by that property. Nice to see some action out front!

    I missed a shot of the bikini girls, but got stared at nevertheless. The pool attracted a lot of gawkers anyway

    all you need to complete the look is a junkyard dog and a pickup on blocks.

    This brings back memories of growing up in Queens. I used to play Marco Polo in my neighbors’ four-foot pools.

    It’s always funny to see how relative concerns about the environment tend to be in Foggybottom. If some hick peed into the Mississippi river, in Louisiana, our local professionally outraged set would be near hysterical with rage. But, get a wild idea to fill a plastic pool with hundreds of gallons of Hetch Hetchy, in an area where water is not something we can take for granted, and everyone thinks it’s cute. And we wonder why the people higher up can’t save the salmon or the whales.
