Once daylight savings ends, most of our daily walks take place on my lunch hour. I’m lucky enough to work close enough so I can zip home at lunch and still manage to get a 30 minute walk in. On the days I can’t zip home, we are stuck walking around the block at night. Which really stinks.
Friday as we approached the field I could see some people standing around something white. At first I thought it was a casket.
