The Catsup Tower

And while San Francisco is famous for some of its towers – Transamerica, Coit, the supports of the two suspension bridges, etc., the city may one day be more famous for its catsup tower.

While visiting a friend’s garage recently, one’s eye alights on a packing box labeled: “Catsup Tower.”

Yes, you read that right, and Keith – obliging fellow that he is – agreed to display the contents.

When he was a lad, Keith Stanley’s artistic apprenticeship was occupied with a number of splendid adventures in design. Not the least of which was his version of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, built from catsup packets.

Never again will a visit to a fast-food restaurant be the same! I’ll forever be wondering about how many catsup packets I can take away, and what Keith might make of them.

Well done, sir.
