|Dirty Dan hanging out in the rain|
I snagged that picture of the statue of Dirty Dan, whose website tells me that he was considered the founder of Fairhaven, off of Facebook. I see this statue in various states, from covered with rain like this, to wearing a considerate woolen scarf when it's really cold, and in the summer he's been known to sport sunglasses. The birds like to sit with him sometimes, too.
Anyhow, this time next week I'll be with my sister Norma Jean, and hopefully I'll be enjoying the Y's outdoor pool with her. She swims more than a mile every weekday, but I'll be lucky to last for twenty minutes. Then I'll go inside and ride the stationary bicycle while I wait for her to finish. I looked at the weather ahead, and it looks like it will be in the mid-70s and just about perfect! Wish I could just transport myself there, but I'll be spending the entire day on Monday in travel mode.
