sidebag for extra papers
Later, I was still running the route – having given up the dream of him taking it back, and now doing it because it was a good hour exercise before anyone else got up in the morning.
The only fall out when I quit the route was the occasional nightmare where I was out doing papers, but had lost my list of which houses were taking papers and which ones were not. Sometimes there would be whole blocks of houses I had never seen before.

The lawns and flower beds of the homes are well tended and that slows me down a little. I stop to observe how the border plants spill over into the sidewalk. I wonder about the height of the irises or the size of their blossoms. The only suggestion I would have is to take a route that requires the run 6 days a week instead of only 2.
Kiwi comes along, Duncan says because this is her real chance to run in the morning. She doesn’t have to be on a leash and she is up and down the blocks and circling us numerous times. Rebecca has a chart carefully taped to the cart that tells us which houses we are to miss. No nightmares here.
