“No School” Day!

It is freezing cold here in St. Louis.  Much like the rest of the country, I’m  told.  When I rose from under layers of cozy bed covers this morning, my “Doodle” dog barely lifted his head.  From the dimly lit room, I could tell what he thinking.  “Those bare wooden floors are cold.  What are you doing, what are YOU thinking?”  I sat down for a minute or more.  Just when he thought it was safe to scoot back under, I fooled him.  Taking a deep breath before putting fuzzy slippers on my frigid feet, I jumped up for the day.  His shaggy white head and black nose peeked at me one last time.  “Are you CRAZY?”  At least that’s what I imagined he was….thinking.
