pop cans in their hair

pop cans in their hair,
eyes sparkling with green glitter,
am I going too fast?

We are in the midst of Dog Days, the sultriest days of summer, when Sirius, the brightest star in the constellation Canis Major, dogs the sun. I only wish we could blame the heat wave on a far off star. Still, it was a tad bit cooler for Art Walk, Fairfield's community festival held on the first Friday of every month. On the town square there's live music in the bandstand, food and craft booths, fun activities and lots of socializing. The theme for August is "Bark in the Park," featuring a parade of dogs. This year the Glitter Truck arrived for a new coat of glamour. These two bright stars with shiny pop cans rolled in their hair have been gleefully adding tinsel to the truck as well as sparkle to their eyes. Am I going too fast? Not if you're young at heart.
