Five gallon buckets

Yesterday, I had to pick up the paintings from the art show. I had to go between noon and four. Of course, it was an insane day at work, so I ran the first moment I got free.

Normally, the drive to the gallery and back to work would have been a half hour or so.  Nope.  Not this time.  There was construction going on in two of the 3 lanes on the road to the gallery.  Really?  Can’t you do one lane at a time?  The middle and the right lanes were blocked off.

After the construction zone came a series of 5 gallon buckets littering the road, so everyone had to swerve around them.  It took me a half hour just to get to the gallery, and then time to pick up the paintings.

I headed back and there was more construction, on a different block, going that direction.  So, I ended up finishing the trip in an hour, instead of in a half hour.  Plus, there was no parking when I got back to work, so it took me even longer.

I finished up work and left.  On my way home, there was another 5 gallon bucket.  It was a perfect ending to the day.
