Why aren't you busy?

Aug 8th, Monday

“Say, Pooh, why aren't you busy?” I said.

“Because it’s a nice day,” said Pooh.

“Yes, but—”

“Why ruin it?” he said.

“But you could be doing something Important,” I said.

“I am,” said Pooh.

“Oh? Doing what?”

“Listening,” he said.

“Listening to what?”

“To the birds.  And that squirrel over there.”

“What are they saying?” I asked.

“That it’s a nice day,” said Pooh.

“But you know that already,” I said.

“Yes, but it’s always good to hear that somebody else thinks so, too,” he replied…

The neighborhood

A lot of times when I have some time over during the day or in the evening I go for short walks through the neighborhood. There are so many parks around town, and the streets are really lush and green.

How's the area you live in?
