News from the Hood
There’s a new bank one block from me. Really? We need more banks in this world? People needing more money for their work and families is not the same as adding new banks is it? But capitalism tends to confuse those two issues. And besides it is quite an ugly, or at the very least non-descript, bank. Couple blocks along and the roses are out in glorious bloom which lifts one’s spirits after contemplating the number of banks and bankers in the world.
Then a truck sped down Tingley and hit a duck as it crossed the road with its friends. Didn’t even stop to see whether it lived or not. A kindly man coming behind got the dying bird off the street and was trying to figure out if he could catch the driver of the truck but then what could he do. Truck drivers who carelessly kill things and don’t stop are likely as not have a gun tucked in here or there in the cab so a confrontation would not end well.
A woman was watering her blue flowers. I can’t remember what they’re called.
Back at my house my cactus is awake.

Thank Marjorie for the pictorial walk. Sorry about the duck, happens in Dover frequently because we have so many ducks around…they get in their primeval mating hysteria and they are in a fog. See, usually the male duck, see how we are. The rhythm of nature and all that. It does make me a bit sad. Your pictures and commentary are very nice, thanks. If those blue flowers were here I would say they are corn flowers, but not sure, they have not bloomed here yet. Summer…Memorial Day..want to come sit on the beach. I think next year we should rent a cottage on the Delaware Bay, and you can take pictures and blog..
