“It's practically impossible to look at a penguin and feel angry.”

Joe Moore (American, Chicago alderman 49th Ward, b1958)

TIME:  6:39 PM
PLACE:  Muny Parking Lot, Forest Park, St. Louis, MO
SUBJECT:  StellaDella and the North Star Penguin

Tonight was the annual Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk.  There seemed to be a whole lot more people at the walk this evening, compared to last year’s event.  I say this because we actually had to wait in a long line for the portable toilets, we never had to do that before – or I’m thinking that could have been because they had less facilities than there they had last year.  Seriously, is that ever a good idea?  Anyway, we (our family, a friend of DQ, my dad and my oldest brother and his family) walked this evening.  Why, we even refrained from collecting additional batteries out of the trash cans this year, which I thought showed great restraint.  The North Star company was one of the sponsors of the event and handed out cherry popsicles for the participants.  Besides a popsicle, SD also received a hug from their mascot.
