Seen By the Fountain

Last Week — This little girl is contemplating giving some money (in her hand) to a band (not seen; to the right of the frame) who were playing by the Fountain. She tentatively walked over and ultimately dropped it in their guitar case, laid out upon the Plaza. At first, the dollar blew a foot away. Her mom watched anxiously. She persevered, picked it up and tried again, dropping it in successfully. Mom clapped. She ran back, elated at her accomplishment. It was very sweet.

The fountain will be turned on soon – likely one day this week! I’m guessing Tuesday although the weather is forecast for rain so they may hold off. Any bets? I’m revising this. If the week is like today, probably not! Okay, well, it would have been turned on, if it wasn’t under construction!
