The seminary campus is being used as as staging area for local police-county/state/local as they make their way to Washington University to be part of debate security. All of their cars have been parked in our lots as well as the lot of the old CBC high school on Clayton Road. Yesterday morning and again today, dozens of police got on bicycles and road through the campus and past our house on the way to Wash U. I have to say, everyone of them said hello to Ferdie and me as we stood outside and watched them pass. In the area near our power house, a number of police dressed mostly in black were unloading what looked like the heavy artillery. They were friendly as well, but I did not feel comfortable taking a picture of them.
Here's the sign near one of our parking lot entrances
It almost looks like Ferdie is reading the sign.
Then some of the many cars
And a few of the biking police as they passed us.
This is just so cool to be close enough to feel a part of it all.
