Walking the dog early in town this morning, it was striking how much pride all the shop owners have in their store fronts. Everyone was out sweeping, cleaning and setting up. While walking past Copenhagen, tables were being scrubbed and planters were being filled with a beautiful array of flowers. What a great place to spend some time on the weekends.

I agree. Even in poor weather. Luckily that hasn't been an issue. Arts and music fest in park today! No squeezing in to the high school.
