MRS. BUTTERSWORTH ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


It was horns a-plenty at 7th and Montana this morning as "Mrs. Buttersworth," the woman known for driving one mile per hour down Montana, then parking her car in the middle of 7th Street, made the scene after a year-long hiatus. "Look everyone, she's back!," I cried in delight, "You know what that means ...!" Mrs. Buttersworth is nothing if not predictable. She always leaves her car -- a late model Prius -- parked in the bus lane in front of Our Favorite Starbucks, then slowly, methodically meanders her way to every lightpost in a 20-foot radius. Some say she's merely sniffing around, marking her territory, but I know better. She's on the prowl for any signs promoting neighborhood garage sales. And like Mrs. Buttersworth, she takes her own sweet time ...!

I'm going to have to watch it that I don't turn into a Mrs. Butterworth.

I can't get over the wide variety of lose nuts and flakes that converge around there! Never a boring day goes by huh? You always manage to find the entertaining,unique ones. Or maybe it's just the way you look at things.I enjoy it all the same!___=^..^=___KIttie

I doubt she is the "little old lady from Pasadena" in disguise!

Some people are just oblivious.
