Between the 15 minutes of drafting this post and posting it, I was made aware of this honor sent my way:

With humble gratitude, 3D…

This was bestowed upon me by my dear, fellow Southern friend, 3D.

Be sure to click on his link and read some of his uplifting journey as he prevails over cancer with some of the most up-to-date treatments, such as a large doses of Jimmy Buffett, along with the daily joys of his incredible family.

Now, on to my original post, before tonight turns into tomorrow…

This is not a reflection of the sunset: the fountain is actually dyed pink this month in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. Giant, pink ribbons adorn every city-owned property right now.

A crowd always gathers for the sunset. When its last speck disappears under the horizon, the spectators erupt in a round of applause. It’s an evening tradition like none I’ve ever seen anywhere else.

The roses in the manicured garden are also afire at sunset.

My #2 & #4, while #3 runs amok in the rose garden nearby. We’re just killing time while #1 is at archery practice. I could kill time any time like this.
