all alone on a snowy memphis night

Like a couple of idiots, Mary and I decided to walk to dinner last night -- in the snow. It was actually very nice - the snow was falling very gently and there was no one out and about. We got a table right away at Boscos and had a lovely evening. On the way home we rolled big balls of snow in several people's yards, and made a snow bunny on our own sidewalk. It was actually quite warm for a snowy night, but the neighbor still heckled us for being silly for being out in the snow.
