MUM's the word

That's MUM as in My Ugly Mug, not generally advertised, but nauseatingly
available at nonetheless.
It's my official Fermilab shot, and not so horrible as these things go. The
scanning job left much to be desired, with its splotchy treatment of my lips,
and the slight squatness of aspect, but it gives a hint anyway. I have no
control over any of it, so I'll have to do my own handiwork if I want better.

I do have some photos I need to get scanned one of these millennia. Especially
bizarre signage, like a brick wall with a Do Not Enter sign, and an elementary
school (a former one, really, but that's not obvious) with an Inventory
Reduction Sale sign. I got some shots of an ancient (the original?), decrepit
Ovaltine building in Villa Park just last week. And just 20 minutes ago I
accidentally discovered a small park with a "Canoe Launch-Dog Training" sign.
I'll bet you can't even find canoe-launching-dogs at Byar's Market, devil-
possessed or otherwise!


And then there's the classic English "No Football Coaches Admitted Unless
Booked In Advance" sign, always a favourite.
