Glimpse, Gift and Big Joy

- An unexpected early morning glimpse of a pensive Mr. Slow Walker watching a truck being unloaded at the hardware place next door.*

- The outpouring of friendship and comfort to a family as we say goodbye to a friend. He always made me feel as if he was just delighted to see me, with the gift of his wide smile and hearty laugh.

- Having "family style" Chinese food with committee members at a restaurant with a great name, "Big Joy." And finding we all have an equal affinity for Hot and Sour Soup.

*No worries - I did not intrude upon him, using the zoom feature on my camera. That's why it is a little fuzzy.

I love how relaxed and settled he looks.

Some people have such a great gift of making us feel special, don't they?

That is a fabulous name for a restaurant!

Hope your holiday weekend is full of big joy, Lynn!

Talon -

I had never seen him in that spot. He is usually walking slowly up and down the street.

The last time I saw him he was sitting in a nearby pizza place with his son. His eyes lit up and he called out, "Heyyy!!!" Such a wonderful man...

I hope your weekend is full of big joy, too!

Jannie -

I like all that except for sweet and sour pork. Something about that color. But I do like Mongolian Beef very much. Big joy to you!
