s’posed to maybe rain later tonight…maybe some lightning also…be good for the crops/lawn…..why was a Muni worker taking photos of Jardin Bavarias little plant pots hanging from their outside window, being used as ashtrays? is the Butt Patrol coming around again? it’d be a surprise, considering that the Muni/City Hall folks seem to be paralized….dam spel chuk…into mostly not doing anything. They’re probably waiting to see what happens with their previous office holders, some of whom are languishing in the clink/carcel/jail…wonder if Adolfo still has any say/juice in town?
