What you see when it rains...

Well, I was looking forward to some wet, muddy trail action today, but it didn’t quite work out. Oh well… I did head out the door for a trip around the neighborhood, and picking up the paper, what do I see? A “cute” little guy…

I looked him right in the eye and told him I didn’t want any insurance quotes.

He was around 8 inches long. I moved him off to the bark and grass, and he took off, then so did I (for a few minutes of running).
