Today the annual kite festival was held in Zilker Park. That meant that those who live near the park had to contend with street closures and heavy vehicle and pedestrian traffic. I had to go via South Lamar to church. After church, though, I forgot to return home that way. I had to take the South First exit off MoPac. It took me about one and a half hours to make a trip that normally takes about 15 minutes. Grrrr! That’s one of the “perks” of living in this neighborhood.
