August and I walked from Walden to Catmere End, to retrieve my car after late night fun at Lisa and Mike’s and then Vicky and Steve’s parties. Bright crisp morning. Climbing over the top we found the last of the snow and some trees covered in very yellow lychen. August in his new parker and beanie now being worn with the Nike swoosh “inverted”. He did well, no complaining. He’s still only 5 years old.
