We had a bit of a hubbub in the comments both here and on Facebook over the misspelling of “Wiess” in the street sign that I posted last night. It made me smile and brought back to mind the days when my book was being edited. My thorough and competent editor painstakingly changed every instance of “Wiess” to “Weiss.” Then I had to go back and fix them all. I was so happy the book was being published that I didn’t care.
So I went and poked around in my laptop to see if I could find a followup and this was the first thing that popped up. Doesn’t it look like fun? It’s undated but just eyeballing it I’d guess it’s circa 1960.
As I’m sure you expected, something did catch my eye. What is that behind the guy at bottom left? Is it a vending machine?
Bonus: I am unilaterally declaring that Memorial Day weekend has begun. I’ll be posting as usual until Friday but don’t even think about calling me until next Tuesday.
