Rain on Thursday was compatible with Susan and Nate going to see the Pixar film Up and Jon watching the hockey game..these photos are from our walk earlier in the week in Brownstone. As the dirt pile and the accompanying sign indicate, even the very nicest Winston-Salem neighborhoods sometimes experience friction between neighbors...we'll need to check back to see if the city made good on its threat to tackle that dirt pile...I don't remember such a glorious sky on that walk, but Jon's photo is all the evidence we need!
