While walking the dog down Centre Street early this morning, we spotted this beautiful loaf of bread sitting on top of a car all by itself. Not only is it not in a bag, it's sitting directly on the roof of the car, not on a paper towel or a napkin or anything. Totally exposed.

This oak bookcase once lived in the Robert Treat Paine house on Joy Street in Boston. It now sits in the portrait gallery of the Massachusetts Historical Society. Its upper front panels read "Wisdom is better than rubies."
The KIng James version of the Proverb is:
For wisdom is better than rubies;
and all the things that may be
desired are not to be compared to it.

This sign is displayed in the Wilderness section of Franklin Park. It reads:
"It is against the law (1889) for anyone within the park to fire [illegible] crackers or squibs, to make outcries, orations, or harangues, to hold meetings, move in procession, play hand-organs, peddle any articles, solicit custom or advertise, use vile, profane, or threatening language, and generally to do anything that must disturb, worry or annoy other visitors.
The foliage and flowers that grow on the Park are for the common enjoyment of all where they grow.
To pick them for private use is as criminal and as mean as to steal private property."
