a FLASH poem for Saturday

Should I dress
Should I dress today take the dog go play
It seems so nice out cool after the rain
I wouldn't burn the sun's staying under
We could walk three miles, let's hurry I'll dress

What route should I take remember the dog
I'll wear my short shorts keep my shoulders bare
No sun I shouldn't burn stop and eat too
Best for you Bert's Gyros is dog friendly

Could I take my bike get there much faster
I might ride down the hill go by the lake
Going down means pedaling up or pushing
We'll stay here on the plain basket for you

We aren't in shape for this let's drive to Bert's
Still get some air put the top down for you

I love that little face poking over the tailgate, ready to go anywhere with you.

The dog is always ready for a walk and only looks up to say "Are you serious" if it is raining!" Loved it.

That's a cute PIC you added in here Jim. Dogs do love an outing.

There is an important thought process going on here. Planning is everything ...and I think her final decision is apt. The dog gets to enjoy the breeze...and she gets to visit Bert :) It reminds me of how our Zeus is integral to all our family outings. I really liked this :)

I certainly fit in with your decision to drive... I am hospital hall weary.

Sensible thing to do, Dr Jim! Not to tire oneself but spend all the energy in whispering sweet nothings at Bert's should be a better alternative.
