Today was action packed. First, there were three skateboarders that came rolling down the hill behind me at a fast clip. I stepped off the path to avoid being run over. Second, the boulevard was diverted into one lane going the wrong way while some work was done on the opposite sidewalk. I asked the road crewman what was going on and he said, “Don’t know. They’re digging a hole and I’m just rerouting traffic.” Third, I stopped in at the veterinarian’s office that had its backyard area covered in artificial turf then surrounded by a very tall fence. I was curious what was being constructed. I walked in and was met at the door by the vet (named Lee). He explained it was a dog run with fancy turf that allows drainage, and then he took me back for a tour. I was greeted by twenty dogs barking, yipping, and yapping; impressive. Fourth, I met Betty who was sanding a bench that had been placed in memorial for a woman who died ten years ago. It faces an impressive view along my walking route. I wished her well and headed home.
