Round the 'hood

This guy/gal and his family have lived over our neighborhood for almost the whole time we have lived here; although, we have not seen them recently.  In fact, we are pretty sure they had a nest in our neighbor's tree and some crows chased them away from it.  We found a huge nest on the ground under the tree last year.  Though, now that I see his size again, I wonder if it was the crow's nest - we have some large crows around here.

 Pretty sure his is a red shouldered hawk.

 A neighbor hired a face painter for their daughter's birthday.
 Face and arm painter that is.
 And the Walkabout.  This is a bit of a hodge podge post, more for my benefit - just some little scenes I want to remember that remind me of other things.  The Walkabouts happen four times a year.  All the businesses stay open late.  There is often live music.  This trolley runs from one end of the neighborhood to the other.  We usually walk one way and ride back the other.  For some reason Mike could not go with us, probably sermon prep, so we rode the trolley both ways.

 And this is Carlos' gigantic squash.  It weighed more than Henry at the time.  Carlos lives three doors down and leaves bags of avocados on our door step about 10 times a year.  Awesome, huh?
Just some stuff around here.
