Not Your Typical Bathroom Design

Thursday, September 13th, 2007

Yesterday I was up at 7AM thanks to a cat who might find himself on the streets before too long, and after I did a good bit of work in the morning I thought about how I might spend the afternoon. Maybe take my new camera to the park and take some pictures. Sure was…
