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?
