Apparently clowns shop at the Vons near my house.
I wish I could have gotten a picture of her from the front but she was walking fast and I was fumbling to find my camera (you can click on the pic to make it bigger and get a better view of her, um, lovely dress). This was not your usual birthday party clown -- she looked too good (and a little scary). Ringling Brothers Circus, perhaps?? I was in a hurry so I took this picture and went on my merry way into the market. But now I realize I missed the best picture of all -- watching her put her groceries into one of those tiny clown cars. Darn!
