This week with Arlene and Jeff:
...Dressed in their cold weather running gear, they jogged down the steep driveway. As they made the first switchback, Kayla said to her mate, "If the plow keeps piling snow on the sides, the drive is going to look like a tunnel by spring."
"Actually," Jeff returned, "Security has already hauled a lot of it away. That's where all the snow came from that's in the big pile just across the county road at the bottom of the drive. Had it not been for that pile of snow, Arlene's trip down the drive on her snowboard would have ended quite differently, I imagine."
Kayla chuckled as they continued their slow jog to limber up. "I've wanted to try that, but…"
"No!" Jeff barked out. Then in a quieter voice went on, "Sorry. I didn't mean to say it just that way. But one miscalculation and snowboard and rider would go over the side. I don't want to even think about that. Arlene has promised me she won't do it again and I certainly don't want anyone else to try, either."
"Yes, Dear," she responded with a chuckle...
Have a goodun;
