I’m going with definition one

 noun a person walking along a road or in a developed area.

    foot traffic

Krista Stevens at WordPress created the photo challenge this week.

I went to scan my archives for something that stood out and found plenty of pedestrians in them.

Cars in our city aren’t too courteous to pedestrians.  There are parts of the world where you step into the crosswalk and the cars stop immediately allowing pedestrians to cross.  IMG_0566Zagreb

Weekly Photo Challenge: Treasure

“Capture something you treasure“,    Krista Stevens at WordPress says this week for the challenge.

What better treasure than friends?

Last snowy Sunday my dear friend Joanne (green pepper jelly maker) emails and says,” Let’s SKYPE at 10:30.”

Okay.  At 10:40 I call,  “what happened?”

Oh ten thirty CENTRAL time!  Got it.

So at 11:30 (my time) the SKYPE rings in on my computer and J says,

I have a house guest- would you like to meet her?

(and I am thinking, why would you want to SKYPE with me if you’re entertaining a house guest?)
SURPRISE!  Look who enters the screen!    It’s  Aïda whom I’ve not seen in 27+ years.  We lived in Granfenwoehr Germany in the early ’80s.

Aïda (from Florida) visiting her daughter and granddaughters at Ft. Leavenworth Kansas and drove up for the weekend to visit J.

Great memories of good times with dear friends.  We were on for more than an hour.  What a nice surprise!  Fun.

Joanne and Aida call me
