What a really nice day today. I went for a little walk during the day around the swan pond at work. The swans right now are nesting so there are warning signs posted that they can be aggressive. I figure that if I walk around the pond and stay as far away from the edge as I can. At one point I stopped to take a photo of myself for Daily Booth and I hear the paddling of the swan behind me coming up fast. At this point I had to decide which way to walk away. I got a bit nervous because I could actually hear the Swan making very strong strokes to propel itself towards me. I would walk away and whenever I stopped it would come towards me. Even when I was sitting across the street from the pond. You don’t mess with swans.
Today was the annual North Attleboro Santa Parade. This parade is put on by the Downtown Associates of North Attleborough, DANA. Each year many schools, dance studios and businesses participate in the parade and each year Allison and I go to see it. Last year was rainy and cold but we went never-the-less. This year the weather was great and we had a nice time. We stood with Allison’s friend Jodi and her family. Her daughters played with Eva and even picked up some of the candy tossed their way and gave it to Eva. Eva made out pretty good on the whole deal.
