Theft!

Imagine finding your sidewalk stolen one morning!
And then, a week later, they brought it back, by pouring new concrete...
...oops, a squirrel ran across!

And today, it's ready; a new, flat sidewalk!

The workers neated up the edges, and sprinkled grass seed.

We are thankful for our new cement, and for a city that is working hard to pull itself up by its bootstraps after too many years of being scruffy.

Sidewalks mean a lot, when they are smooth and clean, rather than broken and heaved.

 I always meet some of the nicest neighbors on the sidewalk!

Yes, those are my feet; I prefer to meet my furry friends on their level.

A nice sidewalk is ever so appreciated. We have good ones here and we like them too. It's even better when you can meet cuteness too.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. ♥

I think the squirrel prints are rather darling! Our neighbors cat was outside into dusk last night. She's far away from our yard but we can see her. I wish my cats could go outside. I just can't do it. But there is something magical I told my husband about a cat in a garden!

We love those squirrel prints! We don't see them in the dried surface, though--surely they weren't covered up? They were bound to make folks smile!

Hooray for a new, flat and smooth sidewalk!!

When we had our concrete drive poured it was not ready yet for anything or anyone to be on it, our neighbor's dog walked across it...the prints are still there, 14 years later...

Well, if something has to be stolen, it may as well be sidewalks...
