It’s That Time Again

30th-at-Glenwood_Wednesday.jpgMy home is in North Boulder off 30th and Iris. It’s getting close to Memorial Weekend. Put those two facts together and what do you get? You get the BolderBoulder Run-up Entertainment Specials! That’s right. For those of us who live practically on top of the race starting line, the countdown to the Big 10K is full of little daily not-quite surprises.

(Yes, of course I’ll be running–well, walk/jogging, anyway. I’m back in the NB wave. You can look me and John up under last name “LeBoeuf-Little”. What, you think I’m going to try to sleep through the insanity? Not bloody likely, sweetie.)

Today’s development: the first lengths of Rent-A-Fence went up along 30th and Corona Trail. No more crossing 30th mid-block for us! This will definitely put a damper on my early morning dash across the street to catch that 208 I’m late for. I’ll just watch it helplessly as it corners at Glenwood about 30 seconds before I get to the break in the chain-link fence. Joy!

But you know what I’m really looking forward to? Saturday morning at something like 6:00 AM when they drop off the port-a-potties along the curb by the Alterra residence. Mmm, port-a-potties and lilacs: the smells of summer!

    In fact the Port-A-Potties didn’t arrive until Sunday morning.

    Sunday afternoon saw demonstrated the folly of tacking blue tarp across the chain-link fences before sandbagging the fences’ feet. To get the full effect, try it on a windy day.
