The sun is shining and Honey is washing the car. Of course, he's freezing, but darn it, he is washing the car inside and out. With his bare hands. In Chicago. On.the.driveway. (And this car, which travels daily to a horse barn, is particularly redolent, so he is really, really trying to clean it.)
Forget those peeping crocuses. Car washing on the driveway is the one true sign of spring. At least in the arctic circle of Northern Illinois.
With the new health care reform, I figure we are covered if he gets chilblains.
