Good day. Celebrated Juneteenth @ Pratt Park, then took the 8 to EBB for my friend Sundee's release party for The Other Half of My Heart.

And again (this time at 23rd & Aloha)

Spotted at 31st S & S Lane. What is it about bus stops & abandoned shoes?

"Free poems. Take one." 5/20 edition: "Crossing." Read it w/ Bus Nerd on the way to the 48. I love my city.

Spotted at 19th & Aloha

Busling is (finally!) old enough for the Ergo: a milestone for bus babies. #onthebus

Busling (finally) rides in the Ergo: a milestone for a bus baby.

Skipped the 14 & walked home. Chicklet's favorite part? This shortcut. All that plus a hilly mile walk? NP for a 2-yo bus chick in training.

Mmmmmm ... marjorie!

My boys: Bus Nerd, Busling, and brothers.

First water taxi ride of the season (to my dad's place for his b-day). Love the new boat!

Bus birfday. Prompted buswide discussion abt cake. When birfday boy & mom got off, whole bus wished him a happy day. Can't get that in car.

Fellow bus chicks: Walk quickly, and carry a big purse.

Was almost the victim of previous rider's rainy-day bus foul: umbrella on seat.
