Odds and Ends from the Clean Sweep
In the top photo we see...well, nothing really, and that's the whole point. Three weeks ago Johnny Northside wrote about how he got his 311 buzz at 718 West Broadway. When Hawthorne, Jordan, and West Broadway all did neighborhood cleanup on the same day, I wanted to be sure that we checked out this vacant lot and at least pick up what we could. Finally, finally, someone beat us to it, and the lot is clean for now.
In the second photo is a hula hoop I made for some kids at the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter closing ceremonies last year. It was sitting out in the rain in an alley. I have some idea of who it might belong to, in case it was left out accidentally. But the hoop needs a new tape job anyhow. So I'll fix it up and see if I can't return it to its rightful owner.
