Your Sunday Squirrel

Well, it's Monday.  Drat!  Sorry about that.  I haven't been able to make it to Denny Park much lately owing to work and a fine songwriting run.  Today I have the day off, so guess where I'm going.  Yep, Denny Park.  I hope that many squirrels who can hold still for as long as my camera takes to focus will be out.  In the meantime, here is a fellow from a few weeks ago.  Enjoy!

Your Sunday Squirrel

I saw this guy yesterday.  He wasn't friendly  He was eating something that had dirt all over it.  But he held still long enough for my crappy camera to take this picture of him.  In the same tree was a peculiar fellow who only had half a tail.  Other than that, he was quite normal.  He could climb a tree as well as any other squirrel.  He just had half a tail.  I will be on the lookout for him in the future.

The King Is Pretty Much Dead

It's just one wall now.  That was where the screen used to be. 

OK, So Bell Street Park

We've been promised a potentially problematic park (ooh, alliteration!) for years now.  I believe it was announced in 2009 as part of the great Stimulus Package.  Did it get built?  Obviously not.  Every year it got kicked down the road another year.  Well, that year is finally here!  Bell St. between 1st and 2nd is the first victim.  They're doing quite a lot of destruction and very little construction, but there is apparently no turning back.  I'm sure it will be nice once it's finally done - whenever that will be - but I'll still make the trip to Denny Park, because, y'know, squirrels.  In any case, I hope that Bell St. Park will be very nice for everyone and not just for people who like to smoke tons of weed or who like to poop in public or sleep on grass.

Your Sunday Squirrel

I ran into four squirrels yesterday and this is the best photo I got of any of them.  I think I need a new camera. 

Say Goodbye to the King

Take a last look:
They've had a weird scaffold around the place for the last few weeks, scraping the stucco off the exterior.  I dunno, doesn't that seem a bit strange?  Anyhow, I saw Gone with the Wind and Spartacus here.  I know, back in the day, they used to show those films on Sunday afternoons.  Spartacus would run for four hours, GWTW for five.  I never watched them.  So much talking.  Well, I finally saw them at the King.  And I haven't seen either one since.  Godspeed, King Theater.  In a year, no one will remember you, except for me.
