On a Stroll
I went for a walk today, taking advantage of yet another beautiful day in New Orleans. On my walk, I saw some things that stood out:
- Six (6!) For Sale signs in yards. That’s a lot for the three streets I walked.
- One Mardi Gras ladder (click here if you don’t know what this is). Yeah, you rite.
- Older neighbors playing a round of the Washers Toss Game. I had to Google what they were doing as I had never seen it before.
- Many homes nicely decorated for Halloween. That’s not the thing that stood out. What stood out was the one neighbor that painted black, white and green polka dots and/or stripes on their pumpkins and the other neighbor that was installing his Christmas lights on his eaves. Yeah.
It was good getting to ground-level and seeing the neighborhood so up-close. I need to get back in the habit of doing it regularly.
