Our weather has been really pleasant for a while and I thought spring was just around the corner. But the predictions now are for rain and a drop in temperatures later on in the week. I should get out with Rocky while the sun in still shining.
I used to enjoy walking Rocky because I met a lot of my friendly neighbors then. I don't meet many neighbors in this neighborhood, and I 'd say they are "mildly friendly". Some don't even respond to a wave and a "hello"! It's just plain not my type of neighborhood, so what else can I say. I've been thinking of trying to move back to the city, but not sure where or how to start looking for a place. I have been so self-sufficient all my life and it's a bitter pill to take losing all my independence and have to ask someone to drive me where I need to go. This place is really "out in the boonies"! Suggestions welcome, but not many opportunities for an 82 yr old female. By the way, "age 82" looks way worse when I put it in print! :-) I certainly don't think or feel that old!
So I just came back from a nice walk, where we met a couple who were walking two beautiful dachshund puppies! They were so cute and friendly, and not afraid of Rocky at all. Rocky is so laid back that no one should be afraid of him, except someone who is up to no good. He has always been very perceptive and a good judge of character.
I think I will now spend a bit of time looking at ads for apartment rentals back in civilization!
I also want to send condolences to Judilyn.
