Welcome to my blog!

I used to blog here mostly using local photos about my neighborhood or Washington DC or other places I visited. But I took a break from the blog for a few months and then found myself posting about crafts and sewing projects I have done or are doing. These involve fabric recycling or re-use and refashioning of clothes, or other frugalities. I've left up the previous blogs and may occasionally revert to those topics again. May your days be blessed with miracles, surprises and creativity too!

You Won't Believe This Dump on Metro Car

At first I thought it was a rotten banana but it turned out to be a human dump on the floor of the WMATA metro car that I was on the other day. Actually, I really couldn't believe what I was seeing so I edged a little nearer and decided to photograph it hoping that it would turn out to be a joke or something but it looked real enough and I snapped it using the miracle of a cell phone camera. A few other passengers looked at it and looked away. No-one could say anything to anyone else as everyone was embarrassed by it.No one could look another in the eye.  I mentioned this nasty to a couple of co-workers who didn't believe me until I showed them the photo. One asked if I reported it and I had to say I hadn't but then again, when I got off at the station (Convention Center) the train was taken out of service, so I assumed the train would  be cleaned. Someone theorized that maybe it was left by an animal and began suggesting some rather large dog breeds. I didn't think so as the only dogs that get on metro trains are service animals for people with disabilities and they are very well-trained and are very unlikely to do something like this. And most pet dogs are very well trained, too.  All I could think was that some human had somehow done this and walked away. I think anyone seeing this is left aghast at how it happened. Maybe someone didn't know there are bathrooms in most metro stations? Maybe someone did it deliberatedly as a dare? I'm still hoping someone contacts me saying it was just a prank. What do you think?
