Concert Al Fresco

Filed under: Reflections — ktismatics @ 5:31 pm

Running toward home along the South Boulder Creek Trail, I saw a girl standing astride her bicycle stopped along the pair-prairie-dogsedge of the path. Approaching nearer I heard her voice — I figured she must be talking on a hands-free cell phone. As I got a little closer I realized she was singing, and quite loudly too. Singing into the phone? No. When I got near enough to see her animated expression and subtle hand gestures, I realized she was performing for the prairie dogs. I don’t know if the she noticed the thumbs-up I gave her as I passed by.

  1. See, this is the kind of story that just makes my day. More people need to perform for prairie dogs than perform for themselves (myself included).

  2. The critters seemed pretty attentive, not barking, mostly standing and watching, though I believe I did detect some grazing.
