It was nice at the festivities yesterday and last night except for, right you guessed it, there were just too many people.. I don’t know how anyone can have good time elbow to elbow, all jammed into one place. It must be me, I’m not accustomed to being packed like a peas in a can. Its the cars and gas fumes that I think about. That really bothers me too. I did notice a lot of odd license plates which means there were a lot tourists. I know I’m complaining again and I should lighten up. Its me, thinking that if people think its fun being crammed in to one small spot like that, Its not. With me, Its mostly the cars, OMG so many cars. But people can’t walk, so every one has to get as close to the activities as possible with their car regardless of the consequences. Which is being in a spot where you can’t leave if you wanted to and when its over it will take 2 hours to leave the area because of the huge traffic jam. Me? I was home in 10 minutes. Where I was wasn’t bad because I know the short cuts but riding the bike was not an option. The cars here and there were numerous and it was very dangerous. I don’t have a death wish. The direct result of all this activity was that I slept well last night and feel rested and that’s a good thing. All in all, It was a so-so time and I don’t know how it could get worse as far as the crowds go but if know human nature it will. So we have those of us who enjoy small normal crowds and those who just don’t care and will do anything…I will never understand that. Why? It has to be the way I was brought up or at that time there were not that many people….I think it’s the second one….
