Just a Sunday

I've been too ranty of late.

We cleaned the car at a western suburbs car wash and went on to Altona Village for a nice lunch.

Where are the photos?  Just the one. A community festival, so nice. Note the summer experiment scrubbed out pedestrian crossing at a roundabout.


The Altona Loop train is mostly a single track train and it is a great way to get to Altona Village, but the train line is very problematic, with many cancellations  It is such an easy option for Metro Trains to cancel trains on the Altona Loop.

  1. Feel free to rant.
    but the community festival looks well attended. A nice lunch strikes me as a just reward for cleaning the car.

    1. EC, we owed it to ourselves to have a nice lunch after car washing. Simple pleasure.

  4. I rant in my head a lot - ha ha

    I wonder why they took out the pedestrian crosswalk? Where are people supposed to cross now?

    1. it is before a roundabout so normal rules apply. pedestrians give way to cars.

  5. I don't think you rant very much. I sure I don't go over board on rants either.
    Coffee is on

  6. What was the 'community' actually doing at their 'festival'? They seem to be just sitting around.

  7. I like community festivals. I don't go to any, but they seem to be a great idea for communities to get together having fun and food.

  8. I wouldn't say you have been too ranty on your blog.
    Got to let it out - makes you feel a bit better.

  9. I am also disturbed by the painting out of the pedestrian cross walk. Two weeks ago we had a 70 year old woman crossing in front of our Post Office and she was run over by a careless, teenaged driver who did not stop despite the marked walk way. The Police are monitoring as the Selectmen decide what other efforts can be made to slow people down in their cars.
    I'd always thought of these things as being a waste until this woman was killed.
    Now, clean cars and a nice meal! Bliss!
