It was overcast this morning when we set off on a walk with Todd and both dogs. Bill takes Maggie’s leash. She walks fairly well for him. Lexie, on the other hand, pulls on her leash with all her six pounds of might. She puts it in “four paw drive” and gives it her best. Todd hooked her to my walker one morning and it didn’t come to a very happy conclusion. She could pull much harder than I could resist. There is a lot of power in that tiny little body.
When we were almost back home, moisture began to fall. It was a very fine mist. In Oregon, we called it sea dust. It always felt so good on our faces then and it did today, too. If the drops of rain were a bit bigger, we called it “mizzle," a combination between mist and drizzle. And now you have had your weather vocabulary lesson for the day. Don’t expect much more tomorrow! Remember, I never did get out of Kindergarten!
At 12:30, we went to fetch Todd to go to In-N-Out for lunch. Bonnie and Donnie were involved in other activities, so it was just the three of us. Afterwards, we went geocaching. We had looked for one of them before, but needed Todd’s help. He said he had to look for it four times before he found it, and then when he looked at his records, he hadn’t claimed it.
The second one, we had tried before, also. We couldn’t even find the road to get close to the cache. We relied on Todd to know the way without going onto private property. I stayed in the car, because the path was very weedy and rough looking. But my cane went…with Todd. So I was well represented!
At suppertime, the rain had started in earnest and continued past bedtime!
