It was snarky Friday. Hampton Inn started this weird trend of signs, posters, and objects around their hotels with one word on them. Now it has spread to Holiday Inn Express. "cleanse" on the soap. "tame" on conditioner. What about the bar of soap for the parent whose child says a dirty word (aka "I'll wash your mouth out with soap")? Is that a special bar that says "mouth"? By the way, I agree entirely with the towels. Drying your wet body before dressing is "simply smart". I just don't know that I would embroider that on a towel.

The Story Corps Trailer

Story Corps is here... In Wenatchee! Story Corps is one of my favorite segments of the so many great ones on NPR. As I was driving to the hotel, I noticed this big silver mobile home trailer with the Story Corps logo on the side. Ah... if Ali were here I'd be bugging here to try doing a story. What would I say? What would she say?

The Man in The Woods

That's what the locals call him. He stands roadside on fish and game lands in New Jersey. apparently dressing him is a group effort.
