Looks like the Locust Street pawn shop might be getting pawned.

Here are a few about to be carted off to TV heaven.
So that's where that damaged section of Heritage Drive fence got to.

Just within reach
A new hatch has hit.
Down at River Park, too.
Someone dropped their glasses in the mess but wisely didn't go back for them.
And clumps on the river
Speaking of mayflies, borough workers wrangled this giant one on Friday and brought it to River Park.
They placed it here, near the pavilion. It's actually a bike rack that was designed last year by Bella Gentile, who was in third grade at the time.
Local artist John Morrow put it all together.
The many-legged thing is an apt addition to the park.
And here are some bikes.
The rain gardens at the park are looking healthy.
Here's a house on the 300 block of Walnut.
By the way, when did Heritage DRIVE become Heritage STREET?!
There's the Jolly Roger...
...on a kayak.
This worker was painting the curbs the other day.
It didn't help.
This Flagger Force worker politely and apologetically tried to explain to drivers why South 9th Street was blocked just beyond the intersection with Wright Street at the same time the left turn onto Wright Street was also blocked. Drivers had to turn right onto Wright [!] then right again onto South 10th Street, then back onto 462.
And this is planning?
A few minutes later, more traffic headaches, this time on the first block of South 6th.
Meanwhile, atop a telephone pole...
Nag, nag, nag!
Bitch, bitch, bitch!
Looks like all families have their share of dysfunction.
On and on and on!
The National Watch and Clock Museum celebrated its 75th anniversary this past week.
Lots of folks attended. They came from all over, as attested to by the license plates seen below:
Oh dear lord, let's hope these aren't for the mayflies.
