This photo was taken a while back under the greenway at Spring Garden Street, near downtown. It captures the vibe that will be felt downtown today during First Friday (provided the weather agrees). People will be out milling around enjoying the all of the fine things downtown offers each first Friday of the month: Art exhibits, snacks, entertainment, and shops brimming with merchandise. We suspect the pumpkin flavoring may be rolled out, in lattes, cheesecake, and more.
If you notice the bike in the front of the photo, we thought we'd take a moment to remember Christopher Robert Fulp who died yesterday morning when his bicycle was hit by a car on Country Club Drive. Mr. Fulp's family and the family of the man who struck him will carry this sad event with them for the rest of their lives. Hopefully, they have friends and loved ones to help them through these very sad times. The road will be a long one. Greensboro is making an effort to be a bike-friendly community. However, as we can see from yesterday's sad event, we're not quite there.............. As always, be safe this weekend, dear readers.
