Local Observations

Today I saw the neatest thing. As I carefully meandered down the avenue toward the errand-land across town, which is also the way toward the local high school, I noticed a homemade poster.
"Happy Birthday Brianna!" it boldly exclaimed in large, colorful letters. Then about 5 poles down the road was another in neon pink "Brianna Happy 16!" A green one was next, "Sweet 16 Brianna!" Large Posters on poles continued all the way into town, Wishing a lucky birthday girl a great day, even if she had to go to school.
How cool is that?
What a bus ride she had to school! How loved would you feel seeing those for you? Or would you be mortifyingly embarraassed infront of your fellow villager passengers?
I'm thinking it's my next door neighbor's adorable grand daughter (same name), who was looking so grown up at twelve, when last I asked, a blink of an eye ago (a few years back). I bet it was her Nana who went the extra five miles too!
Every one should get to feel so special at least once in their life.

What a wonderful gift that was...

That was sooooo cool!

I did something like that one year for Jimm's birthday, long ago before Kelly. It wasn't on every pole, but on maybe 3 or 4 and he LOVED it!

Talon, it was one of the more fun errand rides ever discovering those- What a thoughtful thing to do.

JanF, They must've gone broke on all those postrer boards!
We played treasure-map with the kids where you leave a note to find the next- n one year they left me notes for after work at home for my B-day to find a surprize.

Talk about a whole town that knows it's your day- you'd better like the attention- some folks are shy-
