We had a great day for the annual Walk4Hearing fund raising event in San Diego. This year was the first for a local walk; in prior years, San Diegans participated in the Long Beach event. My estimate of the crowd was about 400 people. The weather was splendid and how could you better spend a Sunday morning than walking around Mission Bay saying eh? what's that? I jest, but only a bit, as many were deaf and many half-deaf like me. Fortunately, they had signers for the major instructions and there's some kind of app now available that people were using. I have to find out more about it.
We had a picnic and a short but good support group meeting afterwards. A dozen people were there...two new people and a few regulars.
|Kids, dogs, balloons - everything you need for a festive occasion.|
|Our sign marking where our group gathered.|
|Carlsbad High provided cheer leaders.|
|Toby - eleven years old, made it around the 5k|
|A few of our walkers - it was hard to herd them all together for a photo - this is about half the group.|

"Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Shall I go? Or shall I stall?
Okay, okay...I'll get my veils
Can I come home if all else fails?"
|Eilleen and Jim Wedding Day|
Halloween scarecrows around Fallbrook.
|I can see my reflection in the vacuum cleaner. Makes me feel a bit like Clara Peeters.|
|The candy store worked a nutrition message into their display.|
|I love the string hair and the purple lips. Good makeup can even make a broom look good.|
|This was the most original scarecrow of all.|
|I was taking this picture when a bunch of bikers showed up complaining that "butt crack = plumber" and the FPUD|
(Fallbrook Public Utility workers) has been maligned here.
|I love this face with the bee on the nose.|
|One of my favorites|
|He has a lovely wide nose, great for sniffing. He could be a wine taster when he isn't conducting the chorale.|
|He's also got great ears...."the better to hear you with, my dear"|
|This poor alien has no nose and no ears. But a lovely shade of green complexion.|
|A blue bride...probably getting ready to run.|
|I'm not sure about his hat!!|
|A great ensemble.|
|Biggest bosom on the block and interesting legs.|
|I liked the matching face and beads.|
|A lovely lady with a vampirish feel.|
|Here's my shadow.|
|Vincent Van Crow|
|Great eyelashes on this beauty.|
|He's kind of creepy and there's a huge mole on his nose. He should be in front of the dermatologist.....but then you look into his eyes.....|
|And it changes everything. I might be able to overlook the pointed teeth even.|
|With the jacket and tie, he's the best dressed of the scarecrow guys. A dude.|
