Half Dome – Yosemite Musing
A few Central Valley towns are choosing Mural Art to spruce up their buildings. Lovely Lodi now has 11 murals that depict California life. The goal there is to have 30 murals created by local artists. Just down Highway 99 a bit in Manteca, the Convention and Visitors Bureau is pushing their project. They hope to have 40. If you are in town, find the Century Furniture Store at the corner of Main and Yosemite streets. A huge mural shows the town as it looked in 1918. If you take the Mural Tour, you will be rewarded with this one of Half Dome.
Unrelated thought worth quoting: “Half a pound of tuppenny rice, half a pound of treacle. That’s the way the money goes, Pop! goes the weasel.” – 18th Century nursery rhyme.
