Deja shoe

The inexplicable shoes-at-bus-stop phenomenon continues.

Running shoes at Yesler and Broadway(ish)

Westbound 2 stop, 23rd & Union, after Easter service

And the award for best Easter Sunday bus stop style goes to … this flawless, fashion-forward father-son team.
Easter style

The competition was pretty stiff this year (folks at every bus stop in the neighborhood were dressed) but these two looked so sharp, we had to stop and give them props. Even Chicklet was impressed.

Speaking of busing with babies…

Today after church, at a southbound 48 stop, I spotted one of my bus parenting heroes, a man I’ve never actually met. Back in ’08, when Chicklet was but a wee lass, I saw him playing Connect Four with his kid at a northbound 48 stop (in the shelter that advocates for what Bus Nerd refers to as “the right to safe trife“).
