Back to morning walkie

I feel as though all I’ve done for months is sit. I’m bored and stiff and getting crankier by the day. But when you’re a broken-down one-legged old reprobate who has already taken some damaging falls in the past couple of years, traction is an important issue. The snow isn’t gone yet by any means but it’s no longer the biggest factor in venturing outside – that would be the mud. And first thing in the morning the mud is frozen, so also not a factor. I can at least go back to doing my morning chores on foot.


It was a pleasure to get outdoors for an hour or so. It was heavily overcast all day yesterday and is so far today, so it wasn’t nearly as cold as it looked. I dressed too heavily and now I need to change out of all my sweat-soaked upper clothing but it was worth it.

Since that may be the whole of my activity for the day, this may be all I have to post about. Looking forward to Saturday when Landlady has said she definitely plans to visit regardless of weather, if only for a break in what is becoming a really monotonous winter.

    Cabin fever, I know it only too well. There is only so much reading, watching movies, playing on the internet and working out a guy can do before the walls start to close in.

    Only if you don’t have a dog with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Mike!

    What part of AZ are you in? been trying to pin it down. more curious than anything. I should be retiring in a few years and some place like you have should stretch the money some.

    Mark Matis… LOL

    I figure jokes like that are safe, Mike, since Laddie can’t read and PETA ain’t likely to show up around here.

    But then is it really a joke if it’s true?

To the stake with the heretic!
