I believe in acknowledging folks who do nice things for others. Today the City of Fargo did something nice for me and heaven knows how many other neighbors that live on 5th Street. The City of Fargo probably didn’t realize that they were doing this nice thing, but what really matters is the end result.
I was at my daughter Sarah’s house this afternoon with my other daughter Cheyenne when I caught a glimpse of a man through the window walking and periodically stopping to do something in front of the water treatment plant. Even with my new forty vision (which has some failings), I was able to quickly discern from where I was at that he was wearing jeans, but was shirtless and his body – well, ummm – let’s just say it was very nice. I have to admit, I was out on the front porch with my camera in less than a minute. I wanted to capture a photo of this very pleasing worker so that I could share the City of Fargo’s kindness with all of you.
Cheyenne was a tad horrified that I was going to try and get a photo of him. Sarah just laughed – she learned long ago that objections are futile. I must say that after my blog yesterday about the beefstros I was fairly sure that this bare-chested fellow in the blue jeans was a sign from the universe that I was on the right track.
Long story short, the yummy man kept walking down the street and around the building and I never did get a photo. I wasn’t the only one watching him as I saw a number of double-takes from drivers. I wanted to jump in my car and drive around the building to get a photo, but I thought had I done that Cheyenne’s head would have exploded from the embarrassment of it all.
Instead, I will just have to leave it at this – thank you City of Fargo for the fabulous scenery on 5th Street today. If all city workers looked like that I would spend my days driving blissfully around Fargo taking photos.
Day one thousand and eighty-eight of the new forty – obla di obla da
