Sunday was so beautiful – sunny, blue, bright, cheerful.  I took my hound Rusty for our early morning walk and was surprised to see a sign taped, of all places, on the fire hydrant.  We got closer to read it and I had to admire the marketing strategy – some teenagers were advertising a Dog Wash. 

For $10 they are willing to wash your dog – provided he is friendly.  That leaves Rusty out – he’s very friendly unless someone comes at him with soap and water. 

It was so nice to be able to walk in the neighborhood and see the grass getting greener every day, the spring flowers starting to bloom and have the weather be warm enough to wear just a light jacket.  It has taken awhile, but spring finally arrived yesterday.
