His little feet scurried ..

across the road as fast as they could carry him. I was on my way to do a bit of shopping , and noticed there was no traffic behind me. I gently braked letting him reach the other side of the road. It was indeed a murky day and drizzled most of the morning. 
Wednesday is Market Day in town though only small you can pick up a bargain or two. I bought an Indian cook book and a pretty pack of notelets..I still put pen to paper now and then, especially to my friend in London. We have been writing since I moved away 15 years ago. But we never fail to keep in touch , in the good old fashion way. 
Before my cup of coffee in my favourite bar , I had a quick check up appointment at the dentist. All clear glad to say and no hefty bill.
 Parched I was ready for that coffee , and sitting in the window view area I manged to get my favourite seat. I just love watching the World go by , and people watching. I find it very relaxing and sometimes it can be very interesting. 
Take the day ..a dear old lady was at the crossing and about to cross. But as she did so she dropped her plastic shopping bag. Not realising she carried on. The traffic lights were still blinking , but the front driver stopped and got out of his car. He retrieved the shopping bag (he held up his hand to the waiting traffic) and gave it to her. In he got and the traffic patiently waited, well I thought isn't that just dandy! 
It's still raining here right now with hail stone flurries. Dark one minute and then it lightens up. 
It is nice to catch up and have been away far too long.
Wishing you well and enjoy the remaining weekend.
