The weather here in Kansas City is driving me bonkers. We never had a winter, and now we have dived straight into 80* days!! It bodes ill for the summer, but we will see what actually happens. The a fore mentioned capriciousness may lead to a weird summer as well.
This morning with Sacco at work and with Bat Fit in mind, the fuzz-bottomed girl and I went for a hike on a nearby nature trail. Now, I lived in the Adirondack park of New York state for years. When I think nature trail, I think this:

Before we went, I was a good and responsible wanderer and packed everything needed.
Which leads me to a rant. PEOPLE! THE HELL! How hard is it to bend over and pick up your dog’s poo? How much time does it take to grab a handful of bags and be prepared? My dog does not want your dog’s tummy ailment! I also don’t want to trod in it! Back to nature, my arse! Did you see that trail? It is a giant sidewalk with some grass near it! Pick up!
Specka did 1.75 miles before she demanded a ride, which was given in the pirate parrot fashion. I feel my remaining .25 mile counted more for the additional 7 pound weight on my right shoulder.
