Why Are We Inside?

Are you done with your busyness yet? - why are we inside?
Are you done with your busyness yet?

The long morning walk was hours before. The mid-day yard time has come and gone. Now we are waiting on the long afternoon walk, but Hu-Dad is consumed in his busyness. On this beautiful spring day, Roscoe’s look asks the question we all wonder, “Why are we inside?”
