Sign of Summer
A couple years ago, Menlo Hardware (and maybe some other local stores) were selling these bright, small reminders that there are a lot of children afoot in many Menlo neighborhoods. This one was spotted while taking a morning walk up Bay Laurel, in front of a house that was teeming with kids and at least one pet.
It was amusing to see one reemerge on this summer’s first really scorching day. Perhaps the children had rescued it from the garage or basement?
