Two Rode Together

Big Pat Daugherty and I did our mini-ride today -- 13 miles, from the Albany bulb past the Richmond marina and back. Today Pat added a little something on the far end. He turned right into what looked like an office park, the kind of low bland faceless wall of buildings where you would imagine they store all the Amway products in the world.

"You know what that is?" he said.

It was just another smear of gray one-story concrete boxes in sequence with an occasional incongruous bit of crenellation.

I did not know what it was.

"That's the Richmond City Hall," he said, "which is about as far as you can get from Richmond while still being in Richmond."

Murder rate, violence, etc. etc? Nah, I just think they got a break on the rent.

(Next time I'll get a picture. For you classic cinema fans, our original excursion.)
