Dishing the dirt

Fearing that I might get dirty, I wore jeans to the Copper Trails horseback rides in Copperopolis. Those fears were unfounded, I only got a little dust on my shoes. After that assignment was done and I got back to the office, Record photo editor Craig Sanders gave me another assignment for a hearing at the county courthouse in downtown Stockton. Not wanting to appear in court wearing jeans, I changed into a pair of extra slacks I had at work.

After the court assignment I cruised around looking for an enterprise feature and found Danyel LeDon, 23, and her 6-year-old brother, Michael Tabangcura, having a water balloon fight at Victory Park in Stockton. During their playful battle the park’s lawn sprinklers came on unexpectedly and Tabangcura made a mad dash through the cooling spray. While the spray mostly missed me, it splattered at the loose dirt at my feet and mud splashed the lower legs of my pants.

Though I didn’t expect to stay clean out in the country, I actually got dirtier when I got back to the city.
