A tar covered baby's bottom

Ahhhhhh.  The smell of hot tar on a warm summer night.

The city of Tucson has been repaving Pima Street west of Wilmot.  Stepping outside the last couple of nights to walk Lucky has had an added bonus:  The smell of tar.  Call me weird, but I kind of like the smell of tar.  In small doses, of course.  I don't want you to think I'm a tar addict.

The city has also repaved the stretch of Speedway Blvd I drive on from Wilmot to Kolb.  Combine that with the repaving of Pima, and my drive to and from work is as smooth as a baby's bottom.  A tar covered baby's bottom with lane markers.

This Tucson Police officer must be on the lookout
for late night hot tar thieves.
