It was so pretty the other day, we three all walked to Zach’s Shack for hot dogs! We had the cool back patio all to ourselves, and we enjoyed our spicy Chicago dog, Dylan dog, and French fries. I even indulged in a pint of Guinness. Yum!
We were all feeling very full when we were done, and Grandpa Nelson suggested we take the long walk home.
There is always a lot to see in a new neighborhood. Spring has sprung with Forget Me Nots and flowers I can’t even name, growing from every planter, lawn, and crack in the sidewalk. It is glorious.
The dogwoods are all getting ready to bloom by our house. This one, about ten feet tall, has already popped.
And, on any walk, there is something you see that, well, you just didn’t expect to. This time, it was Bernie Sanders. Yep, a life sized standup of the Senator from Vermont, as he appeared at President Biden’s Inauguration, sitting comfortably on a front porch. We passed along our best wishes and waved goodbye.
And before we got home, we saw a dragon and covered almost four and a half miles.
Not bad for “ just an afternoon walk”.
