Update on spring: As advertised Thursday was warm and sunny. People were smiling, clothes were lightly layered and many fresh pedicures were unveiled.
I left work early and rushed home to let out the animals and to sit outside reading the newspaper. Yes, I said, I sat outside.
And suddenly we were surrounded. 3 neighbors, 1 bearing 2 children and a rottweiler larger than said children were in the yard. And we were hanging out talking like it was .....spring. The Lab was so excited by the handsome presence of Cato, the huge rottie, she raced inside and brought him her squirrel. She tried to make it squeak but no squeak left. He just wasn't that into her anyway.
From the alley behind the house we heard children playing, pit bulls barking and hip hop blasting. Someday soon one of us is going to light up a barbecue.
We're back world, and shall be making periodic appearances as the weather permits.
