Hello to all of you today. It’s been a busy day at Hot D***a. My Uncle Tony from Maine is in town on business. It’s been a parade of relatives through Pittsburgh for me lately. My guess, however, is that you’d rather be reading about something like Dr. Pepper.

So, let’s talk about sidewalk chalk. Last week some students from CAPA drew an outstanding mural on the sidewalk outside my store. It had a sort of Tim Burtonesque feel to it. If you stop by Hot D***a sometime soon you can see the remnants of their effort. For your convenience, I’m attaching a photo to this blog entry as well.
