Mom had no idea where we were going at first, but since I was the navigator, did that really matter? Not really. I directed her into town; we kept going and going and going. Pretty soon, we saw this:
We went through the roundabout, then pulled over and parked. I got out and had a look around.
It was great! I had never been where I was before, so there were all kinds of cool things to explore, sniff, and to see!
|"How cool! I've never been here!"|
Then Mom figured it out - the news broadcast and where we were. Hey, I had a plan all along! How could she doubt me?
|"There it is!"|
Can you see it? Let me clip in a screen shot from Google Maps for an aerial view:
|I was about where that red arrow is pointing.|
The red arrow wasn't on Google Maps, I put that in.
That's right - I was at THE roundabout at 4th and Bluemont. Our City decided to put this in a few years ago to help control traffic instead of something pedestrian (no pun intended) and less expensive like a traffic light. So far, the cost has been over two million dollars ... but, hey, the project isn't complete yet. See that pedestal in there?
Right in the middle - a pedestal. The plan is to put a sculpture up there. I heard on the news at lunchtime that the committee in charge of choosing the sculpture announced that the members need more time to reach a decision. That tells me they haven't decided anything yet and there was still time for someone to come up with a really cool, outstanding idea of what to put up there!
I have a perfect idea!

Is anyone thinking what I'm thinking? Any "Yes" fans here? Ha roo roo roo.
