A perfect Thanksgiving day
If I had custom-ordered the weather for Thanksgiving, yesterday would have been exactly what I ordered. Temperatures near sixty, sunshine everywhere. The perfect day for that after-dinner walk. You know, the one you force yourself to take, even though you're so full you can hardly get out the door.
You barely burn calories because you're walking at the speed of a slug, but the fresh air and sunshine are a nice change from the turkey-laden, oven-heated air in the house. I brought up the rear, and when we got back to "the point", I dropped on the ground and lay on my back, while the others walked a little farther. And was greeted with this:
Nothing like dog-slobbers in the face. Of course, all she wanted was....
somebody to take her stick and toss it.
Happy Thanksgiving, Sadie. Did you get enough turkey to satisfy you?
