[photos] Going for a walk with the_child

I'm having a writing day today, but after practicing reading with me and cello near me (it's not like I accompany her), the_child asked me to go for a walk. We headed over to a nearby strip mall, because she wanted to go to the dollar store there, then to Mike's Drive In for lunch. Many faces were made there.


On the way back we passed a very improbable disabled rescue assistance area.


Also, while walking through the strip mall I noticed a young woman installing Christmas decorations in a store window. Her name tag read "Destony." Which made made me wonder what it would be like to go through life with your fate misspelled. (Admittedly, the fate of a misspelled name is the precipitating event of one of my favorite movies, Terry Gilliam's Brazil.)

As usual, more at the Flickr set
