Wednesday, April 29: Spring has Sprung and May Approches

Well I decided to sleep in late past 6 AM since I needed my sleep badly. I woke up to a very nice spring morning.  It's spring as it was intended. I had trouble getting out of the house due to some digestive issues and

19th and Market
got out of the house in time. So I'm remembered that there's a detour on the 48 bus Monday through
Trolley Towards 30th Street
Friday 8 to 430 until May 8. This is due to PGW gas lines.
I was lucky I got the 48 bus at the Parkway and Pennsylvania Ave., Justin time. I also caught the
Sticking Dominance
trolley at that showed up and didn't wait long for the EL. I did manage before catching the 48 to go to the ride bread and get a coffee two
