Today, Sunday, September 1, 2013, is Day 78 of the Papa’s Walk Challenge.
After spending the past few days in Los Angeles, it was good to be home and walk my usual route through the neighborhood. There were two distinct changes in the landscape:
- Numerous American flags were waving from the front porches of houses – a signal that the Labor Day holiday is here. Read all about the history of this holiday at the United State Department of Labor website. If you’re looking for a way to celebrate, you may enjoy these 10 ideas for Labor Day family fun.
- Election signs for those running for the Redwood City Council have sprouted on front lawns throughout the community. The election doesn’t take place until November, but the petty squabbling among candidates has already begun, according to one local newspaper.
In my opinion, the flags are pretty and festive but the ugly political signs pollute the scenery. Nevertheless, it was good to be back on my old stomping grounds
