Day 8 Send in the Clowns
The plan for yesterday was a walk to the library for story time and a visit by the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus clowns. It seemed a good plan: a mile there; a mile back. It WAS a good plan: it was fun and we got more books!
Leaving the library, we turned West instead of East and visited another clown who resides on the porch of the Ronald McDonald House just a few doors away.
It was a lovely cool day -- about 50 degrees F -- with a little sun. A little more than a mile and we would be home again...
BUT . . . we could hear a train and rushed to see it. There were horses and cows for the Futurity at the arena just three blocks over. There was a lovely dalmatian named Gentry in the parking lot whose owners let come out to play.
Who could just come home when all of that was calling? It was a long walk.
Three plus miles.
