Do you ever find yourself going through the same old routine when, suddenly, something unexpected happens? It hits you out of the blue and makes you see things in a different light. I find that, while these events don't happen as frequently as I'd like, when they do, they make my day. OK, I admit I'm easily amused, what else is new?
Case-in-point 1: This morning as I was walking from my car to my office (as routine as it gets), I noticed there was a bird singing. This beautiful blue sky morning had just gotten a tad bit better. I don't recall having heard birds singing for quite some time. I had not even been aware of the absence of that cheerful sound in days and weeks past, yet, when I heard it this morning it was like a void was filled.
Case-in-point 2: I had noticed some time back as I was driving to work that the field west of Simms and a little south of the airport has (for no good reason I've been able to decipher) no less than three fire hydrants. Out there in the middle of the field, no roads next to them for fire trucks to access them. There is no rhyme or reason to those yellow fire hydrants sitting there. Perhaps some influential person walks their dog in these fields? Perhaps some perverse city planner wanted to plant the seeds of doubt in the minds of innocent drivers passing by? Perhaps those fire hydrants are there just for me to remind me that not everything in the world needs to make sense and that I should just enjoy life as it is presented to me.
Case-in-point 3: Today, for whatever reason, Mack Greene has decided to bring-in two dozen donuts from LaMar's and two dozen donuts from Krispy Kreme. Yes, you read right. Next thing you know lambs and lions will be resting together. Democrats and Republicans will sit around the campfire having an enlightened discussion on the merits of the other's political views. Well, maybe the last assertion is going a bit too far. In any case, it occurs to me the slight delay in delivery time is well justified by the serendipitous selection available to you today. So break with the old routine, grab a LaMar's in one hand, a Krispy Kreme in the other... and we'll leave the rest up to your imagination.
One last thing. If you check on the blog, I embedded a video yesterday which I though you might find interesting. The blog is at http://fridaydonuts.blogspot.com
