Today on Central Avenue I saw Elvis!  Very dapper in a tan suit and saw another gentleman waiting for the bus who seemed very eager to talk to him.  Granted this was a slightly shorter version of "Elvis" but the hair and sideburns were spot on!!

We are a "cultural mecca" as one friend told me this morning.

This morning I spotted a gentleman that I have seen quite frequently on Central Avenue.  The other day he was carrying an electric guitar, strumming along, with the electric cable hanging from his arm.  Hmmm....

Today he was strumming his "air" guitar.  It seemed that he was practicing some elaborate fingering for what I assume will be a big hit someday!

Play On....
At times "The Avenue" as it is called by the locals is not such a clean, pretty, sight.  This morning as I was driving along I spotted this patch of poppies. A warm welcome to the city of Albany.  Thank you to whoever planted these for adding some color to an otherwise colorless patch of pavement.
