Stuff I like

I like Duluth Spring

Sure, we’re wearing sweaters and jackets and scarves, but the ice is breaking up on the creeks, bugs are flying, birds are singing, trees are sticky with sap, mud is muddy, little blades of grass are poking up through the moss, imaginary fish are biting, and the “fuzzy willows” as my boys call them, are, well, fuzzy.

Rudy Carlson art opening tonight

Rudy Carlson’s show opens tonight at the Carnegie Center for Visual Arts (ye olde library, 2nd St & 1st Ave W), 5-8 p.m.  Rudy’s sense of humor is the connecting thread across the wide range of his work, from intimate portraits to absurd political sculpture.   The Duluth-based artist is also a teacher in a Duluth Heights one-room schoolhouse and father to three smokin’ hot ladies.

Perfect Duluth Plaid Friday?

So I guess there’s this Plaid Friday thing in San Francisco to encourage shopping locally rather than in the big box stores on the evil Black Friday. I’m not much of a Christmas shopper myself, and don’t even plan to leave the house Friday, but I suppose most people are.

What businesses are you planning to support with your Christmas cash (er, plastic)? Can you think of any less-obvious spots? For example, it looks like two galleries are the original players behind Plaid Friday – I wouldn’t normally think about shopping at an art gallery.

Maybe a local shopping list, compiled from the comments, will be added to the PDD guides!

Happy Duluthiversary to Me

Me + Duluth = true love

This is everywhere I’ve lived in Duluth for the past 10 years.

This PDD brought to you by the brothers Ring

My boys are fascinated with this discovery they made last night at Brighton Beach.  Our bedtime talk was filled with the possibilities of the other worlds that just might lie at the other end of a tunnel. 

way too exciting

Do you have a favorite culvert in Duluth?  I think we have more exploring to do.

Found . . .

If you’re missing the roof (and attic, I suppose) of your big white wooden bird house, it washed up on the shore of Connor’s Point.  According to Google, the coordinates are 46.744684,-92.093196, but don’t hold me to that.

tick-removal

I’ve got a 2-year-old with tweezers. He would be happy to pull any and all ticks from you, as soon as he finishes with his puppy.

do you like to break stuff?

about six months ago, i backed into my concrete porch steps. luckily, that part of my car was already crapped up. unluckily, the steps (which cracked, at the time) have finally collapsed, sort of. i mean, one stair caved in. i need someone to come and break up the rest of it. if you have a sledgehammer and some pent-up rage, this is your project.
