And indeed the Thom party found me, about fifteen minutes after that post once I'd wandered in and taken a look around. It turned out to be in the school's back yard well south of 117th, so my blue mark on the peeron wasn't quite right, though I don't think it mattered to anyone.

The place was full of carnival rides, carnies, very bright trinkets for sale, random food stands, and happy people of all ages. Thom's young daughter Kiana took our picture again - hope it turns out as well as her 2012-08-16 47 -122 effort did! She and her friend (of similar age) then asserted that Thom and I were strange, which at first I had to agree with. However, as I ate my satisfying plate of adobo chicken, pancit noodles and rice and drank my root beer, they proceeded to slowly but firmly convince me that they, in fact, were even odder than us... what with their invisible ear-dwelling fish, their ability to lob gigantic, invisible pickle jars at unsuspecting bystanders, and their mysterious, energetic hand signaling. Eventually, though, Thomcat settled the matter by leading them off under an archway marked "Kid Zone", from which I have no idea whether they have returned... -- OtherJack 21:28, 29 September 2012 (EDT)
