another "warm" day ~ temperatures at least above freezing
the nights are still below freezing, and so the combination makes for icy snow
when i walk Trooper, i walk slowly and carefully
but every now and then i feel a slick slip coming and so say 'ooh ohh'
and throw my arms out to balance so i don't fall.
every time i do that, he stops walking and looks back at me
his thoughts so loud i can almost hear them
"i wish you would just let me walk by myself,
so you won't pull me down when your big behind falls!"
