Quote The Ravens Nevermore

May 22, 2014
  We woke up to a slight mist in Baltimore this morning. This is the view from T. Bell's third story, loft bedroom (the kids are letting mom and dad use their bedroom):

Good morning Baltimore!

It's misting out which is just heaven to a Zonie. Here's a closer look:

Baltimore in the morning: that's M&T Bank Field, where the Ravens play, at left.

Lounged around and had coffee. Pattarapan made Thai porridge before she left for work. Since Tomas is now a graduate he has a ton of job interviews. Here he is putting on a tie while his mama irons his pants:

Mama said there would be days like this.

   I'm tempted to say he's still mother dependent, but at least she's helping him, while his father sits on his big, fat ass and blogs about it. Here's the posed version:

You missed a spot, Mama.

   Going to go to Gettysburg tomorrow. Decided to walk around and look at art and be tourists in Baltimore. Speaking of which, last Friday we drove by Edgar Allan Poe's old house which is about a block from T's apartment:

Bill Glenn and T. Bell (in his graduation gown) in front of Poe's house, circa 1834.

   It just dawned on me, are the Baltimore Ravens named for Poe's famous poem? Really? I never realized this. A football team named after a poem?! That is crazy cool.

"Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'"
—Edgar Allan Poe
