However, since I didn't have to pay for a treatment, I was able to take me out to dinner at the end of the street- fish sliders and a Pinot Grigio- and walked happily home in the blue cold night on nice dry sidewalks. Snow falls this weekend, so I enjoy it while it lasts. Yesterday in the warmth I cleared the remaining ice from the Indian Gardener's house, only to be confronted with yet another glacier this morning after the temps fell overnight. Can't think where all that water comes from. But in a fit of pique I emptied most of bag of salt on it tonight and may get to chop it again tomorrow.
Or perhaps I should just start walking on the other side of the street.
