Today's walk was much improved over Monday's. My legs felt much better and I had a really nice time. I sure do love this cooler fall weather. It was nice to have the sun out and not be so hot. I crossed over the Gideon pedestrian bridge and just headed East. I haven't walked here for quite some time.
I really don't like the pedestrian cross walk at 14th and Powell. I know I've said it before and I might say it again. I'm trying to channel my frustration over the too long of a wait for the light to change by taking a picture while I'm waiting. It does make for a great distraction.
St. Zita's Parish
This is one of my very favorite houses to walk by. There is always something new and interesting here. There was so much greatness here, that I spent time looking at everything.
Under the flags hanging on the fence was this cup of pens labeled: Participate.
This was favorite it one. It's also a great segue into the next crazy awesome part of this yard.
The Chicken Porch! I sort of think it's more like a bay window. The 6 foot fence that buts up against the sidewalk runs the entire property. I can't actually see any part of their yard except the strip of land between the sidewalk and the street. But there is now about a 2 foot bay window in the fence for their chickens to see the world go by. This is the closest I've gotten to urban chickens. I really liked just watching them for a bit.
There are plants and all kinds of things in the road verge (also called devil strip, tree belt, or sidewalk buffer - from Wikipedia) as well including this tiled bench. The dollar was already there.
This was the other side of the bench and there was a collection dish next to it.
This was in the marquee of a church. I wish more churches would recognize that it's just love.
This little guy was flying in the wind.
This is my favorite decoration so far this year! I put this picture on Facebook and a friend let me know that today is the 60th anniversary of Charolette's Web. That is Some Pig.
Smile - you're on camera.
