Thursday – A Little Personal – Twiggy and Lucy Warm Again

Lucy and Twiggy

“Whoa, Lucy. This ground is warm.”

“Yes, it is. The temp is 81 degrees F today. That’s 27.2 C for our metric friends.”

“Why are you laying there staring at the fence.”

“No reason. I just wanted the sun on my back.”

“I’m not buying it. There must be something over there.”

“There isn’t anything, I promise you.”

“Well, that’s disappointing. I thought you would have a reason for laying that way.”

“Nope, just catching the rays.”

“You lay here if you want. I’m going to check out the patio.”

Lucy and Twiggy

“Hmm, the snow didn’t leave any marks.”

“What? I can’t hear you.”

“Nothing. I was just admiring the vincas. Are these edible?”

“You are mumbling. Come where I can hear you.”

“Okay, I’m here. What’s that over there?”

“Weren’t you saying something about the patio, and now you are wondering what is over there?”

“Well, yes. That’s what I do. Attention isn’t my strong suit.”

Lucy and Twiggy

“Where you going?”

“I need a drink. I’m going into the saloon.”

“Very funny. What’s wrong with a little deficit in the attention department?”

“Huh? I was looking at that shiny thing on the porch.”

“Okay, I get it.”

  1. I’m jealous of that warmth, but I reckon you guys earned a weather break. That’s a big change over a short time, though. I don’t blame the girls for catching some rays while they can πŸ™‚

  3. Eighty degrees sounds wonderful, John. I love how Lucy and Twiggy are so curious. Of course, Lucy has the right idea. Relaxing with the sun on your back sounds nice. Enjoy!

    Loved this exchange, John. The girls are great teachers about “the little things of life” and how we need to pause and enjoy the moment. Oh, wait, you wrote the dialogue. 😁 Hats off to warmer temps!

  31. I relate to the deficit of attention, as my attention was being eaten away by a movie as I tried to write Heroes last night . . . while texting . . while searching eBay . . while, okay you get the point.

    As for 27 Celsius . . MUCH better than Fahrenheit.
