Cognitively Challenged Days in Excelsior

When I stopped by on Saturday, Water Street was a bit empty, but it was early. I strolled along, and passed a lot jeans with beaded pocket on street racks. Not quite me. I took a few photos as I rummaged through the sale racks trying to find that perfect T-shirt that said "I have an attitude" - for under $10 dollars.

The Old Log Theater & the Minnetonka "Green Bayou"




This is not the main building. But outdoor seating should feature some Cajun cousine

4th Of July Races in Excelsior

It was a beautiful day form the very start! It was a beautiful day, a perfect one aesthetically, for a July 4th Road Race. The race crowd was large, (perhaps 2,000 my estimate) and boisterous. The waves of runners curllllllled out of the school parking lot and headed through the streets of Excelsior. Some pretty good times were posted by the runners, considering the basic havoc at the finish when both 5K and 10K runners clamour down the same street and end in the same chute. - A sign about a quarter of a mile before the finish telling the runners to stay on the left or the right, according to their race, would have been a big help. Two cars park diagonally across the road at the finish were not helpful for the runners or the spectators. Such is road racing.

The Sidewalks of Excelsior

From the Neenah website: "Located in Neenah, Wisconsin, Neenah Foundry is a supplier of municipal castings including manhole frames, lids and grates, trench castings, decorative tree grates, to name a few. Since 1872, Neenah Foundry has been a consistent leader in producing durable castings that are used across the country." I have seen a lot of Neenah.
