Well, the weather folks were touting this rainy Thursday and we got it. It is still drizzling out there. I figured it was safe to set the alarm for later as there’d be no walk for me this morning. I even went to bed super early and slept in late (for me). So, no more using sleep deprivation as an excuse for being crabby.
By now, I suspect that this very cool-looking chalk art has completely vanished from the sidewalk as a result of the heavy rain. Unlike the usual childish scribbles, doodles and flowers I see festooned on neighborhood sidewalks, I was really impressed with these sea creatures … enough so to take a picture of the artwork. My wild imagination tells me that the little kid who created this goes to the playground and says “hey, do ya wanna come over and see some etchings?” (Well, that’s a Throwback Thursday phrase if I ever heard one.)
I don’t think sidewalk chalk art was the rage when I was a kid, and … it wouldn’t have mattered anyway, as we lived in a new subdivision with a gravel road in that cul-de-sac. About the only artwork that I cranked out was using an Etch A Sketch, plus the occasional crude crayon drawings of my pets for grade school assignments that my mom lovingly saved and now repose in a scrapbook at the bottom of the closet.
On this cool and clammy-feeling day, this “seafood special” makes me hungry, so I am going to finish this blog post and have a bowl of Campbell’s Chunky New England Clam Chowder with Goldfish crackers.
