You Know It’s A Small Village When

December 4, 2010

. . . they close for four hours the only road across the river — for miles — to hold a Christmas event. The road is called Main Street for a reason.  It is also called Highway 6.  The dogs were fed, I had a list, and I was on a mission — until I came to the road block.  There were pedestrians strolling around, some events scheduled in the park, and no cars could go through.  This is the road to I-25, to Lowes and Home Depot and Walmart.  So, I turned around, stopped at a grocery store on my side of the village, bought food, makings for a green chile/chicken stew, found drumsticks for the dogs for $ .99/lb. and stocked up.  I’ll get the rest of the stuff on my list in the morning when the road across the river should be re-opened.

    Oh wow! that is small. I guess it was a sign to take the afternoon off. 🙂

    Had the same thing happen to me in Creemore on Saturday on my way to pick up ground chicken for the puppies. Santa Claus parade had County Road 9 blocked for miles, and because it runs along the edge of the niagara escarpment there was NO detour!!!

    HO HO HO be damned!!
