Ten random things...

...of which I'm aware this Memorial Day evening....

1. People on the streets;

2. The park, full to overflowing;

3. A cruise ship in the harbor, heading out to Mexico;

4. The smell of outdoor barbecues;

5. Piles of used toilet paper along the path where I walk;

6. Spanish, and nothing else, being spoken in the park;

7. American flags in the breeze;

8. Two parking enforcement vehicles parked on a side street, engines running. Their uniformed occupants are chatting away, have been for over two hours. While on the clock;

9. Hot sunlight, a cloudless sky;

10. Loneliness.

Number Ten is mine.

Piles of used toilet paper???

Some of Latin America doesn't share our custom of flushing the paper. It can be a bit bizarre. I've seen trash cans in public restrooms with used toilet paper hanging over the edges. Maybe they'll put a toilet education rider on their welcome to America illegals and enemies bill.
