cold November air
drizzling everywhere
Katie doesn’t care

One of the things I like about a day off is not having to leave the house before dawn. This morning I had the bright idea of walking the dog.

Having not paid much attention to the weather forecast, I was unaware we would be greeted by a cold drizzle. In my experience, days like this usually have a shortening effect on walks with Katie. Not so this morning. We departed as my wife left for work. Exactly one hour — and a mile and a half later — we returned from a leisurely, frigid stroll.
