and walked four more.  It was a beautiful afternoon, and the temperature was perfect. There is a poem that some guy named Richard LeGalliene wrote.  It goes like this:

I meant to do my work today…
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree.
And a butterfly flitted across the field,
And all the leaves were calling me.
And the wind went sighing over the land,
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand…
So what could I do but laugh and go?

That pretty much describes how I felt.
