Hi. I’m Stan, and Peggy added me to the posting list for this blog. I live in Pasadena, and I ride my bike a lot, both to and from work, and for fun. And this means I see a lot of dead couches by the side of the road. So here we go:

This one was on Washington Blvd in Pasadena. It’s been there for a few days, and I see it even has a cone and a Pasadena Water and Power horse protecting it.

These were on the lunchtime bike ride. They are on Forest Ave, near the Rose Bowl.

Taken near Santa Monica Blvd. and Gower in Hollywood.

Since there’s some debate about chairs counting or not, here’s another photo:


Courtesy of Stan, this was taken on Wilson Ave. in Pasadena.

I’m not liking Yahoo Photos very much. It won’t let me access the full-size version of this. I haven’t wanted to put other people’s photos in my Flickr album (since I didn’t take them), but I may have to do so.

So I issued an invite for folks to join the blog and post.

Only one person emailed.

I get it. Just like a bad lover, you all expect to lay back and let me do all the work.


Just remember, once my knees start to hurt I can’t be on top anymore and then you’ll just have to finish yourselves off.

This photo comes from Meg, and was taken near Reno, Nevada:

This charming aqua blue couch has a beautiful “abused” look that would be the perfect addition to any crack den. Please note that the back-support has been permanently flattened so it can easily double as a bed for those lazy days in front of the television. This whimsical fixer-upper comes complete with a similarly distressed padded bar stool for a clever lounging combo any decorator would die for!
