The low last night hit 13 degrees, but that did not make me low. I walked at lunch to Tom Thumb Grocery to get a roast beef sandwich with lettuce. On my way there, I came upon birds on the shurbs right next to the store. They sat on each shrub until I almost reached them, then flew to another shrub.
When I walked back from lunch, in 20 degree weather, I heard a cheerful mockingbird sing.
