When I was walking the dogs this afternoon in the park, I kept seeing all these shuttle buses driving back and forth every five minutes along one of the main access roads. Each of the large, diesel buses was completely empty. This got me curious, so after our walk was finished, I took the dogs back to the house and went back to the park to follow the buses to wherever they were going. It was a big city sponsored party. I think the park is having a big anniversary or something today. The party had everything. There were food vendors, beer trucks, a big tent with bands playing. The only thing missing were people. Now, I knew why all the buses I saw were all empty. There was no reason to take a shuttle bus in the first place. The parking lot in front of the stately 1930's WPA designed building where the party was being held was half empty. Most of the cars that were there probably belonged to the vendors. If the vendors left, there would be nobody attending the party. Another example of government at work. I'm sure this whole thing started with good intentions, but someone chould have done a little research and seen whether anyone was even interested in attending an anniversary party for the park.
I went and took pictures of Bentley, the new Dalmatian at the kennel this afternoon. The poor dog has heartworms and a bad skin condition from being infested with fleas. We've already started his treatment and by the end of July, he should be looking and feeling a lot better. He might even have a home by then. Bentley is a really nice dig. Maybe coffee grinders have become throw-away items, but I'll continue doing the best I can to make sure that dogs don't become throw away items as well.
