I went for a little walk downtown today, not a lengthy walk, the air is thick with forest fire smoke, it is hot, and humid, there is just no air!
So I wheezed and stumbled around , found an interesting alley that is about four feet wide and French?
No body knows why or what this little alley is or why the front door to it is The Consulate, De Monte-Christo- It has been there for years- easy to miss- though, like a wee mouse built it.

Next door is this more usual, ordinary house, with solar panels covering the back side of the roof.
Across the street is the tallest building in town, sticks up like a beacon. It used to have a restaurant at the top, pricey! For Erik's twenty first birthday we took Emily and Erik there. It was so dumb!
I ordered buffalo- it came on a slate, it was about two inches long and one inch wide, and had what looked like cat sick on top- bacon FOAM! What? Ewww.
Anyway, we had a good time laughing at our pitiful fancy meals on slate, the gin was good.
Down the block same street is the baptist church parking lot with gay Jesus and his boyfriends playing poker,
I could be wrong, maybe it is rummy- looks like Jesus is disappointed.
I think he is losing. The other guys are pretty chuffed!
Savor this hour is next to it. Maybe this is the valley of the shadow of death. Not sure.
Then I went to the coop- see the thick smokey sky- no body is breathing today!
Tropical pick looks freaked- did not buy any.
So that was our little walk downtown today, thanks for coming along,
I would not have gone without you.
Sorry about the smoke!
I will leave you with a little chubby joyful creature who lives in a hole under our cherry tree- and the dinner I bought for her.
