On the road again. Soon.

24 seconds out my front door

I waited a little longer this morning. So there was more light. And much to my delight there was WaiWai out on a morning stroll! It is warm this morning – 45F and going up to 52F with a little breeze today so I… Continue Reading “24 seconds out my front door”
