Avoiding Town Talk By Walking With Arlington's Village Creek Indian Ghosts
I have decided to change my way too predictable pattern and opted out of going to Town Talk today.
One reason being that of late Town Talk has been almost too busy on Saturdays. Sometimes I find this entertaining, but not so much when I am in a hurry.
Today I needed to replenish my milk supply. ALDI is my milk supplier. ALDI is in the opposite direction, from my abode, from Town Talk, as in Town Talk is west, towards downtown Fort Worth, while ALDI is east, towards downtown Dallas.
With ALDI being only about a half mile north of Arlington's Village Creek Natural Historical Area I decided that would be my walking location today.
As you can see, above, the crime scene type tape is still cautioning people that there is an apparently dangerous pile of logs and litter jamming behind the Village Creek dam bridge.
I wonder what the Village Creek Indian Ghosts make of the crime scene tape with CAUTION repeated repeatedly on it.
Today on the opposite side of the dam bridge from the log litter jam I saw a big water snake slithering through the water. Water snakes can slither remarkably fast. I suppose some of that speed can be explaining by the fact that the water snake is swimming with the flow of the creek, rather than against the flow.
Next Saturday I suspect I will be returning to Town Talk....
