Gay Egrets

Before I got sick, Robb and I went to the library, at which I used to work, to return some books.  While we were in the area, we decided to walk down to a section of the city called Riverfront.  Riverfront was developed several years ago as a means to get people back to the downtown area, which has basically been deserted after 5:00 PM when most people go home from work.  Before Riverfront, there was really no reason to be in that area.  There were no restaurants, no clubs, nothing to attract people.  One of the big attractions at Riverfront, was a restaurant opened by Dan Marino, former quarterback of the Miami Dolphins.  For a while, the area did well, but then the riff-raff starting showing up in greater numbers and people stayed away in droves.  Now, it's pretty much a 'ghost town'.  There are a few restaurants left on the actual river front walkway, and the multiplex movie theaters are still going, but that's about it.

Sunday afternoon, we drove to Pearl Art Supply because Robb was hoping to get his antique picture frame repaired.  Turns out they don't do that kind of stuff.  When we got back to the condo, there were about two dozen egrets walking through the parking lot.  They didn't seem even remotely afraid of our car.

Surely, no one can suspect me of being gay?  I was about forty when this picture was taken.

Seriously LOL at these two logos! One thinks they must be in jest? On another note, it's sad when a town with a river (rare commodity in some places) can't use the river for great public enjoyment. Too bad about the bad elements.

Yeah, that is too bad. Used to live in Charlottesville, and they renovated the Downtown area, and it is a very popular place now.
And is it bad that it took me a moment to figure out what that phone picture was supposed to be instead of what it looks like?
