.....Man, did I get caught up in Get DownTown Greensboro last night. I did the 5k race, in a respectable 23 minutes. (Results not posted yet.) Then it was off to the beer garden. Runners got free tickets, but people, for whatever reason, were more than willing to give away their tickets. So about half my $25.00 entry fee was repaid in Natty Greene's Buckshot.

One thing that amazes me when I hang out with younger people: the later the hour, the bigger the crowd. Students kept filing through the beer ten in invreasing numbers as I became more and more aware my bedtime was approaching. Most of them were young ladies wearing the same uniform you see at a Monday night Panthers game: halter top blouse, hip-hugging jeans and high-heeled sandals.

The route home was down Elm Street. No lie: It was shoulder-to-shoulder on both sides of the sidewalk. Our city was hopping last night.
