My 23-month-old son suddenly stopped running around the gazebo Sunday and looked down at a drawing of a naked woman on the concrete floor.
It sounded as if he said "boob," but my wife and I weren't sure as his speech is still developing and he had never said that word before. But sure enough, right there for all to see was a set of breasts -- on a naked woman that someone had drawn with a marker.
We quickly turned his attention back to running around -- and had a lot of fun on this historic, iconic structure in downtown Fairfield -- but it bothered me that this graffiti was there.
I looked around. The naked woman was just the beginning, sadly.
Cocaine. Joints. And all types of "Revelry" had manifested itself throughout the gazebo -- on the ground and its ornate woodworking.
What a shame.
