Spring has Sprung



Flowers are blooming and birds are singing. Must be a good omen. I see more and more people walking by on their way to the school track to do their walking or jogging. I used to go down there and walk, until the security guard ran me off. He said the principal felt that I was a security risk and she did not want me on the track so I haven’t been back. Well, I was only in my seventies then so I probably was a little more dangerous. That is an honest to God true story. The school is Wilson Middle School located in Yakima, WA. Granted it was during school hours, but the kids were in class. The security guard suggested I might be able to walk at Franklin track. I guess they have a different set of rules or a different principal. Now when I want to walk, I drive over to Randall Park and do my walking.

Well, dang Grandma, I never knew you were so dangerous!!!! How totally ridiculous can one get?! Shoot, I say, if they don't want you, you don't have time for them either! Enjoy your walks over at Franklin Park!

Many hugs.......

I undrstand the necessity of keeping students safe, but I guess I missed thi news that grannies are considered. Rules are good, but common sense is important, too!

Don't they have a show called America's Most Wanted Grandmothers? Well, if they did...you'd be wanted!

It is that cane! A walker would be more dangerous. One with a mirror and a horn. Maybe a little basket to really look suspicious. What a crock. I live right by Randall Park and I hardly ever go there. (Scared of the granny walkers);)
