Back home at parental compound, working away on all kinds of stuff.

I set up shop on the dining room table, not five paces away from “the couch” where I will be retreating to very, very often over the course of the next week. Rest, relaxation and avoiding responsibility. Our promise for the whole week.

GLAD TO BE HOME: Dad had an amazing mess of trinkets for me upon my arrival. The matchbox graphic is featured above. So good. Here’s the matchbox, and how it opens for you to check out. This is the kind of stuff dad saves for me from his travels out in the wild. Awesome.

Welcome back to TC (again)! I was just in Chi-town last weekend for the marathon and I was sorely disappointed that we didn’t have enough time for the Field Museum. P.S. Harker sends a Hello.

That’s no matchbox, it’s a portable ashtray. Sweet find! Those things are all over Japan, but you rarely see them in the states, even in thrift store/antique store/estate sale context.
