What a Great Day!

You’d have thought it was my birthday or something!
Today was one the best days!
I started out to work, but after my arrival was notified that I could take the day off. Not too bad so far, eh?
Then, I went to a Krispy Kreme Doughnuts shop, ordered a dozen glazed on the half shell with coffee, and read the newspaper, checked in on FaceBook, and swapped messages with friends locally and abroad.
Then, I went to the Cathedral to pray and look around and photograph. I saw someone there whom I’d earlier met, and enjoyed conversation for a time afterward. I stayed for Mass, walked across the street to eat lunch with that same friend, returned to the cathedral, moved over to Qdoba Mexican Grille where I drank ice water while seated outside for a while, connected to their WiFi net, and watched people. I’m going to miss summer and warm weather.
Then, I drove around the neighborhood briefly, where a mile-wide smile was put on my face… involuntarily, of course!
I happened to see a rather interesting sight – a lovely and slender woman attired in a tuxedo style outfit walking a dog. And not just any dog, but a teeny, tiny, itsy-bitsy Daschund… a weiner dog, if you prefer, and one that appeared particularly elongated. Maybe it was a miniature Daschund. The entire visual was striking, and most definitely worth seeing.
She and her dog were on the sidewalk on the driver side, and I glanced over at them as I drove past.
Just up ahead was a stop sign at the four-way intersection, where I stopped.
Glancing in my side-view mirror as I do (every conscientious driver does), I happened to see her as she began to turn around a corner, then turned back to look my way. Making direct eye contact with me as I glanced in the mirror, she waved at me! I waved back, and smiled a mile wide grin.
It’s nice to be recognized.
What nice folks!
