Beautiful day.
It really is.
Not gonna be more of these left.
Gotta get the hiking in while I can.
The boots.
Ah. Yes.
Good company.
Are they?
They do a lot for wilderness initiatives — notably in areas with bear population.

That’s what I was telling him.
That’s exactly what I was telling him.
Lenny come in here screaming and hollering with —

My mother used to embarrass my brother and I when we were kids—just by being loud, or provocative, or just being herself. When she passed away, my brother was really broken up about it—we were sitting on the couch, in our house in Florida.
