Scenes From a Better Ross Avenue

June 26 — Tomorrow, we’ll have much more from the Build a Better Boulevard event presently slowing traffic along a stretch of Ross near and into downtown; maybe I’ll even let Leslie run the photo she took of me submerged into the dumpster swimming pool parked in Fellowship Church’s lot at Ross and Central … after Andrew Howard pushed me in, that is, high-tops and all. Not that I was complaining: That was a surprisingly long bike ride, past City Hall and through Deep Ellum, just to go from Main Street Garden to DISD HQ. But the 7-year-old held his own (very proud), and many thanks to the safety-card-handing-out Dallas Fire-Rescue worker — Scott, didn’t catch the last name — and Mr. Angela Hunt, Paul Sims, who hung back and encouraged the lad to keep a-pedalin’.
