I've always thought there is a genetic component at work when a female gets near a store. You have good evidence supporting my hypothesis. Excellent.

@Stephen Phillips: I wouldn't argue with your hypothesis. ;-) Thanks for commenting.

Christel from Köln, Germany

Good evening, Dulcie,
It is an interesting and funny scene. The little girl seems to pull a heavy load behind them. I think the board will not last long. The color choice is a nostalgic effect and like it very much. The poster on the wall is a great addition to the overall view. Have a nice evening. Sincerely Christel

I love your photographs of the human you think they are going into Alta Bates for a visit or a stay.....the little girl looks like she is holding something that might contain her tooth brush and that called a nighty?
