I also got out for a few long walks. The weather was mild, though it was overcast and the city looks rather dismal at this time of year. We need some rain to wash away the accumulated dirt of winter, and then some sunshine to get the plants growing. It will only be a few weeks before the city starts to turn green. There is such a dramatic difference between the seasons here.
We saw some very unsavory looking characters on the street. I commented to L that when we are walking together, we are a two-headed, four-armed, 300-pound monster that needn't fear a few street punks. "Yes, because we can probably run faster than them," was her reply.
