For the past 4 years I have played the piano for the local Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center's worship services that are held on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. On Wednesday evenings I have roughly 1.5 hours between the close of work and the start of Vespers. Since it doesn't take very long to eat supper, I fill my time in a variety of ways. Last night, I took my camera to the park.
The first interesting character I met was rooting through a garbage can in the parking lot. He paused long enough to pose for a couple of photos before diving back into the can.
I proceeded from the parking lot to the ponds, where I came across the same duck family that I encountered a couple of nights ago. This time, I approached more stealthily and avoided frightening anyone. I spent quite a bit of time with them.
When I finally looked at my watch, I realized that I only had about 15 minutes left before the commencement of Vespers. Since I had to walk 1/2 mile or so, I was determined that I would not be deterred from making a hasty exit from the park. As you can see from the evidence below, my determination was short-lived.
I got back to the center, stashed my camera and dashed to the piano just in the nick of time.
P.S. - I will post in a larger font from now on, as I have been advised that some readers have difficulty reading the smaller type against the black background.
