TO THINK THAT I SAW IT ON MULBERRY STREET
A bit more than half of my morning four mile walk follows a back road past a golf course, a waste water treatment facility, and a Ronald MacDonald Home. The HU city bus from the Friday Center to the UNC Medical complex runs on that route, and since the walk is very boring, I amuse myself by waving to the buses as they pass [some of the drivers honk] and counting them going and coming. On a normal day, I see six or seven, on a really good day, eight. That is rarer than spotting a deer or a Blue Heron. Today, mirabile dictu, the stars were aligned and I saw nine buses. A banner day, one to be remembered during walks to come. And there are those who say I lead a quiet life!
