Here's a serve yourself farm stand on Orcas. They are only selling cabbages and collard greens today, and I am traveling with a mini day backpack, so I didn't buy just looked.

During my days in London I deliberately chose not to look at all the Bromptons in use, didn't shop for a new one, and managed to remain philosophical about my loss.
I prefer to remember the sorts of places I've been with William in our 3 years together. To New Zealand, to Utah, as well as to the Ballard Public Library and on my friends' sailboat for a day on Lopez Island.
Here's my great little bike at Lake Annecy.
We've had a great run and I miss my baby bike, badly on some days.
But it's "keep calm and carry on"
Maybe I'll replace Wm with a Wm the Second. Or maybe I won't.
It's really not about the bike.
I don't know who will buy my stolen bike. But honestly, whoever you are, all you're getting is a black bike of dubious provenance. What you'll never, ever get, is what that little bike let me do and see. Lowlife, What goes around, comes around. And I hope my Wm bucks your sorry ass off and lands you in the gutter a few times before he's sent to the scrap heap.
William the Conqueror, you rocked!

Oberon and Titania were half feral, Bottom a delightful clodhopper, and the 2 pairs of mixed up lovers becoming crazier and more dirt covered as they chase each other through the woods. Puck was also a barely controlled creature.
Even the Pirymus and Thisbee performed by the clodhoppers at the ending wedding feast was actually enjoyable.
This is the 3rd play I've seen at the new Globe, and they've all been wonderful.
And we got a little cloud cover by the end of Act 1, so no one in the audience fainted.
Turns out it was great fun, terrific front row "no seats" view of the cast.
I think I'll always go groundling the next time I'm here.
