Composite Image of Stencil Graffiti

Madison -- On our Sunday bike ride, we passed these stencil graffiti on the Wingra Bike Path. They're actually from two different walls about a quarter of a mile apart, joined in Photoshop to create a sort of imaginary landscape. The one on the left is at the entrance to the underpass under Olin Avenue, heading east, while the one on the right is at the entrance to the underpass beneath the railroad tracks near Olin Park, again, heading toward the park. Art, crime, or both? Art Crimes is a graffiti site with lots of links to graffiti art around the world.

Apparently, we haven't come too far from the days of "Kilroy was here" and "For a good time call Myrna, 484-3828."

Just got back late last night after a Weekend Workup at Turville Bay, including the Full Body MRI. I can't prove this, but I believe the scan reverses the polarity of your body, and a radical redistribution of your energy always perks you up.

They give you a headset now that plays tapes of gulls crying over the crash of ocean waves. It would no sooner relax me, though, than a segment advertising Central Wisconsin Proctology Center would come on. That was OK with me except for their slogan: "The Best--No Ifs, Ands or Butts!" Clumsy wordplay always annoys me.
