A fleeting visit

Dear Friend, Neighbor and LBR Gary W. visited.  He arrived Friday afternoon and left Sunday morning so it really was a fleeting visit.  We packed in as many activities as we possibly could in such a short time, including a visit to Hilda's and a long bicycle ride all around the entire Greenbelt.  Gary pretty much was able to see and enjoy a snippet of all of River City's highlights.  As you can see, he even enjoyed a goose, too.  Thanks, Gary, for a wonderful visit!  May your Sawtooth Wilderness hike be one of your best ever.  Ya'll come back soon, ya hear?

In the bottom photo, Susun and Gary are standing in front of one of the special Greenbelt Art Benches.  It's a tribute to Louis B. Armstrong and here are the words inscribed in stone above:

What A Wonderful World lyrics
Songwriters: Thiele, Robert; Weiss, George David;

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom, for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

I see skies of blue, and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces, of people going by
I see friends shaking hands, sayin', "How do you do?"
They're really sayin', "I love you"

I hear babies cryin', I watch them grow
They'll learn much more, than I'll ever know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

Yes, I think to myself
What a wonderful world
Oh yeah
