Looking down off the bridge

I had a great view from the bridge above the construction site. And what are they building? A bigger fenced area for people to run their dogs off-leash in Piedmont Park. Not that many people around here actually seem to believe that our leash law applies to them—and their widdo Fido.

If I were the KW, I’d do a better job of describing this little one-act play that happenstance brought to my viewshed. Unlike many of the KW driving stories, this one doesn’t involve a SUV or a soccer mom. This time it’s a couple of construction guys, an almost flat grassy spot in the park, and the first sunny day after two-and-a-half days of rain.

Fortunately, the lummox in the pickup truck was able to flag his buddy in the little trackhoe to motor on over and give him a push. Otherwise, the lummox’d still be spinning his wheels and digging slick little trenches in the grass. I’m sure.
