I admire anyone, even if they’re 5, if they can break into song before 8 in the morning…

The young one was singing, a veritable carol to the sun. I hastened home to two cups of coffee, the paper, and some restorative carbohydrates.


  1. I walk my dog at 7 a.m. every day. Being outside before most folks makes me want to sing. Mornings are so beautiful and there is no way in hell I’d get to see them without Duncan forcing me out!
