Ballroom

I went to a wedding Saturday. It was a lot of fun. It was at Kansas City's historic President Hotel, built in the 1920s. The ballroom was stately.


It was a little odd to see this (carved? molded? designed? what do you call these little pieces of artwork?) into the ballroom walls.


I still have a lot to learn about the Jazz Age.

i like that sign. it's a sign that says, "hey, come on in and play catch with your dog, and maybe pee a little while you're here." today's sign-makers could learn from that sign.

BALLROOM, Shawn. Not bathroom.

But yes, I did pee all over that ballroom.
