Bit parts

March 15th, 2013 by Joyce · 1 Comment

This month C&D are learning to get bit parts on the local network news stations: The reporter caught us watching a llama costume show. Like most animals, llamas and alpacas usually aren’t tolerant of having anything on their heads or around their legs; the contest demonstrated the training and calm disposition of the llamas.

Use Your Feet with Pedestrian Pete

May 8th, 2012 by Joyce · 2 Comments

One of the reasons we moved to this neighborhood is that we would be able to walk and bike more than we could in our old neighborhood. At the time, we were expecting a new light rail line a block over with a series of improvements for pedestrian access though the neighborhood.  Six years later, […]
