|Inside Brant Egertson's VELOFIX Mercedes-Benz Sprinter -- every Park Tool ever made and enough room to tear down and rebuild bicycles all day long. Plus: VELOFIX comes to your house!|
|Van Operator and Master "Wrench" Brant Egertson could not have been more enthusiastic about the great service that VELOFIX offers busy cyclists.|
|Brant explains here that VELOFIX is a Canadian company, and his bosses in the Twin Cities hold the Minnesota franchise.|
|Juice 1 is not part of the VELOFIX fleet. I met this Ford outside a laundromat in Long Lake.|

|One of the grandkids reported bhow much they loved emojis -- so much so a couple of cuties ended up on the rear view mirror of the Dodge Charger. Wait. Who's the emoji? Who's the real person?|

Sweet Weekend, indeed. Choc Chip Cookies, Fresh Maple Syrup, Sour Dough Flap Jack resipe with Goose Eggs, Homer Made Pork Sausages and Caramelized Bacon. Oh, yum, yum, yum.
|Foodie weekend started in Wayzata at Woullet Bakery. Two massive choc chunk cookies, delivered by Gretchen, with justifiable pride.|
|Satisfied Syrupers display with pride examples of their Maple Harvest.|
|Civil War era Iron Tree Tap, imported to Minnesota from Vermont. They know something about syrup back in the Green Mountain state.|
|Slightly less old tree tapper, made of aluminum, rests alongside the original.|
|Pork sausage from North Carolina iron-skillet simmering alongside non-nitrate bacon from the local co-op.|

Bright blue skies, stunning afternnon sunshine, yet cold enough for Wayzata to be inside, taking a warm-up break.
|Your iPhone can deliver a stunning, award-winning shot if the snow, sun, sky and trees conspire to make it happen. It's hard to resist taking fotos when sun bounces off lake water and sneaks between limbs and branches of naked trees.|
Construction on the new municipal parking lot has stopped for the day. I like that the stop sign is taking a break as well.
Big project, huh? Wonder where Gate 2 leads?
And this one is my favorite cold weather Wayzata shot. A dad and his son deeply engrossed in reading some important book together. The library table looks perfect for this memorable experience, the wood warm and inviting. Dad didn't see me peeking through the triple-pane windows, though if he had I wouldn't likely have taken a pic if I could have seen his face and eyes. Wonder if the book is Robinson Crusoe, maybe some more contemporary classic?

|Of course you go the Dunn Brothers before setting foot inside the main reading room. It's OK to bring in your lattes -- just don't spill anything!|
|You've got to check out this paper back book art if you've not seen it before. Looks a little bit like origami, don't you agree? Wish I'd asked about the artists who created it.|
|Clam shell? Whole bunch of scarves hanging together? Pages from a Mickey Spillane novel?|
|I'm thinking how painstaking it likely was to create this piece -- or/and any of the others I just posted.What do you think?|

|I believe Eric told me that these Swedish made gloves had a lifetime guarantee. Buy them now, save some $$, put aside the gloves 'til next winter.|

My Sis reports in on latest Peruvian "retablo" she scored today at a flea market in suburban Seattle.
| Found my most elaborate Peruvian retablo yet at a flea market yesterday. Need to reattach door and do a few other repairs but not bad for $2 ;). |
That's the door below w design on outside.

At Common Roots - orderly attention to detail at the side bar assures that what comes out of the espresso machine is of highest quality. And it is (does).
|When the condiment side bar is as orderly as this, you simply know the coffee products rock. And that they do at Common Roots. Just saying ...|
