School starts, for me at least, this week, and this sight greeted me on my way into work yesterday morning. Traffic stopped in both directions to let this family illegally cross. It tickled me to no end, and I took it as a good sign for the coming year. Of course, I'll take what I can get.
*Edited to add: today on my drive in another batch of geese, a bit further down the road, were being ushered across the road by a city police officer. Now that's what I call lovely.
