The donut patrol

Original post made by Tristan on Jul 21, 2009

It seems the smell of donuts still lingers strongly at Alma Plaza long after the plaza's popular Bob's Donuts shop has closed. Well, at least strongly enough for four or five Palo Alto police cars to congregate there at 11:45pm Monday night. Must be some sort of new bio-tech donut homing device in the patrol cars.

There are often a hoard of police cars there. At other times there are often a hoard of fire trucks there. Sometimes there are a hoard of both.

The word is "horde," Resident.

My apologies.

And, how come you chose to correct my spellings rather than the many others on Town Square?

Jusr happened to stop by. No malign intent. Town Square is rich with opportunities to correct spelling and grammar mistakes; too many to bother with. It's just a slow morning over here.
