Project Walk

is going well. Tonight, Mom & I walked part of a trail at Sand Run Metro Park. Dampy, that's the park we went through on the way to lunch during JammiesFest. We walked for almost an hour, and wore both dogs out. Bigfoot was extra tired, but bless his little heart, he did his best to keep up. Littlefoot will be wearing his Gentle Leader on the next walk, as he about pulled my arm out of the socket trying to play with every dog he saw, and the one he did start to play with, he was going to play rough the way he does with Bigfoot.

I always enjoy talking with Mom, and tonight was no different. She told me about her weekend up at the lake with her group of female attorneys, asked how work was going, and we chatted as we walked. She did say one heretical thing to me--she said (appropos a purchase made by middle little brother) that nobody needs four new books.

Ahem. Everyone needs new books!

When we were done walking, Mom was disappointed that I wouldn't let her hand out puppymonster treats, but as Littlefoot had a soft stool while we were walking and Bigfoot hadn't finished his dinner, I was firm with her. We are definitely going back to Sand Run for our next walk on Monday.

4 new books is too few...unfortunately, budgets don't often allow for larger slurges.

Sigh. Sounds wonderful.

My mom lives too far away, and she's too old, for us to do that now. I miss them.

It's your mother's (and father's) fault that your brother buys 4 books at a whack and it all goes back to watching HeeHaw.

I don't even want to know what she might think of my book buying and reading habits. Perhaps I get some credit for consistent use of the public library.

I shan't bring up my own bookbuying habits in front of Mamma Jammies. It's enough to get The Look from my MIL.

And I most assiduously did NOT go to a library booksale on campus this weekend.
