Walkin'

I hit a rare day last week when I couldn’t walk outside with the dogs.
Actually, I tried to go to one of our regular places but the parking lot wasn’t plowed. It looked like a 50/50 chance of getting stuck in the snow, so I returned home and gave both Pearl and Buzz a dog biscuit, as is my custom after a walk.
Buzz likes the concept – go for a ride, skip the walk and have a treat – just fine. Buzz can sleep near 24/7, waking only to move to a more comfortable spot, to eat and to answer nature’s call.
In his next life I hope he’s an investment banker.
Young Pearl still craves her walk.

Food for Thought

“Have you read that book I lent you last month?”
“Yes, I enjoyed it, but I’ve…”
“Would you bring it to our meeting next week? My neighbor wants to read it.” (A tactful way of saying, “I want my book back before you begin to think it belongs to you.” A thoroughly justified concern, as I become quite possessive of a book after I’ve read it– especially if I enjoyed it a great deal.)
