Setting Up For The Day (From The Dog Who Knew Too Much)
She gave him a long look, but he didn’t see it, now that we were on the road. We drove out of Anya’s development, went by some strip malls packed with fast-food joints. Humans come up with great ideas sometimes, fast-food joints being one of the very best.
Maybe Bernie was thinking the same sort of thing – not the first time that had happened to us – because he said, “Want to pick up something to eat along the way?”
“I packed some sandwiches,” Anya said, tapping her backpack.
Tuna, peanut butter, egg salad: old news.
“Hey, thanks,” said Bernie.
We took a ramp, hit the freeway.
“Too breezy?” Bernie said, glancing at Anya in the rearview mirror. The wind was blowing back her hair – short and kind of reddish. Women often looked different with their hair sort of out of the picture like that. Anya, for example, looked older.
“I love the wind,” she said.
Me, too. Then I had a strange thought: so did Suzie. Where had that come from? What did it mean? No idea. I pushed the whole thing out of my mind. That was easy. Nothing sets you up better for the day than a clear mind.
Welcome Glenda and Lily in their beautiful garden, Alma and Rati down under.
