The summer is here with a vengeance. We are at +35C every day. This means that I run the danger of having my blood pressure shoot up. This happened to me last summer and I was completely incapacitated (although not prevented from blogging) for almost six weeks. So this summer I'm trying to avoid a hypertensive episode by taking very good care of my health. One of the things I do is walking 10 miles a day. And, as usual, the nasty neighborhood dogs try to do all they can to scare innocent passersby away from the street.
Today I was walking around the neighborhood when a neighbor's dog spotted me. Thank God in heaven, this particular dog was on a leash because it pretty much flew up into the air when it saw me and started barking so aggressively that one would think I'd just drowned her puppies right in front of her.
"Oh, don't worry, she just loves you to death!" the dog's owner informed me with a beatific smile.
"Whose death?" I inquired as I ran away.
