Day 101: Oh, what a beautiful morning

Day 101: Oh, what a beautiful morning

Hello Bricksters. This morning, Brick Watch decided to take a quick tour around the Mall to see what was happenin’. Boy, are we glad we did! The Mall is thrumming, the weather is beautiful, and we saw so much…

On our jaunt, BW discovered a camera crew at Second Street east setting up to film. Not only that, but when we stopped to ask them what was going on, they asked us if we would want to be in the shoot! Now, all of you locals know BW is famous, and of course, incredibly talented, attractive, and pretty much the best. It seems, though, that the rest of the world will soon find out as well. We’re ready for our closeup. (Or wide-angle shot with us barely in the background, whichever.) Here are our autographs; after we’re internationally recognized, we’ll no longer have time for the little people. You’re welcome.

Somebody’s been practicing.

BW also ran into a horde of homeschoolers preparing to go see Flat Stanley at the Paramount Theater. Seriously, these kids were everywhere. Head Brick Watcher just found one in her shoe. …Totes kidding.

On our way back to the Brick Cave, we ran into Siips owner George Benford putting tables and chairs on the Mall. We love seeing the Mall recolonized by its rightful owners.

We also happened to notice the giant ditch at Third Street is filled, and concrete hath been poured to create a base for bricks. Chris Weatherford was right! Then, out of our brickly curiosity, we noticed they were spreading asphalt at Fourth Street. There’s just so much going on! Here’s a video (it’s about dern time!) for your bricking pleasure:
