Nothing slows you down faster than not having an available car! 

 My morning routine involved driving the car a mile and a half to Rose Park to walk around the park 6 times.  However, Thursday when baseball hail bashed the front windshield of my only car in,  I haven't had a car to drive to the park. 

Now, that I am on foot, the blessing is that I have discovered the adventure of walking the local  neighborhoods.     I have discovered that I am less than a mile from Abilene High, less than 2 miles from HEB,  3/4 mile from the downtown library and only a short ten minute walk from the Family Dollar on the corner of Grape  and State Street.

The biggest adventure so far is crossing N 1st, the railroad tracks, and crossing over S 1st at Sayles.  Before you laugh at me, try walking across both streets and over the railroad tracks yourself. There is no crosswalk that makes any sense. 

One is forced to  to keep their wits about them and WATCH FOR CARS!

Good news, the updated street lights and medians going in between Butternut and Treadaway are going to give Abilene a European flair.  Now if  there could just be a pedestrian skywalk from S First to N First.
