My father is in the coin-operated laundry business.  He is a multi-faceted character with many talents, but the one I like to highlight belongs on a segment of David Letterman’s “stupid human tricks“.  After years of collecting change from  the machines in his Wishy Washies, he can pick up a huge bag of quarters and tell you to within a dollar how much money is there.   Believe me, he keeps count.

My beautiful friend, Laura Sweet – creator, maintainer, and FORCE behind the blog, Ifitshipitshere -introduced me to the work of artist Matt Condron.  The rows of chairs remind me of the laundrymats; and in this case, I wouldn’t change a thing.
