Friday morning I asked Joseph the Cat to take a walk with me down by the river. Just the two of us. That seemed to make him happy. When we reached the small creek we both sat on a fallen tree. A gentleman showed up who told me he was collecting the garbage the young folk had tossed everywhere. So I decided to help out and picked up the carpet, and cardboard boxes that were lying on the pathway. Joseph followed me back to the dumpster.
