    Speaking of the Police horses I was walking thru the Target parking lot in WWV and glanced down and said to myself “oh yea the SPD horses were here the other day”! 😉 LOL!

    Had so much fun with the Pollination Resuscitation! Anyone else see the firefighters in bee costumes teaching kids CPR!?  What a fun family friendly festival! And thanks to the Emerald City Walkers for rescheduling their walk to connect with the festival.  Swarms of walkers with bee antenna headbands all over the neighborhood pollinating smiles!

Sorry, comment time is over.
