Northside gets all the cool stuff

Enough already. All this chicken talk is gross. And I have taken a look at the blog and it involves chicken and mice in the past weeks. No more varmint talk!

So I was driving through the northside the other day. They get a lot of cool things up there on the northside. First they pave the sides of the highway with concrete making it look futuristic, then the take them out and plant flowers. Over the past year they have been putting all these way cool iron fences over the bridges with the posts covered in faux brick not unlike the ridiculous gaudy overpasses out in Creve Coure and Chesterfield. It is kind of like gilding the lily, but that is in the true Saint Louis spirit. Look at any of the older homes in town. You can even look at the houses that are essentially shacks and they usually have a lot of hand carved wood, decorative facades and stain glass. Kind of fun really. Of course we don't have any of these cool overpasses in South City. Only in North City and the tony burbs.

I am headed off to KC this week on bidness. I am also putting the Merc up for sale again. I have been looking around for a while and found a nice 71 Thunderbird. Nice one too. It is green. So if anyone is interested I am putting the Merc in the paper for 2400 bucks.

Here is what I am advertising:
