The Pudgy Arm of the Law


Mac is officially a walker now.

But he doesn’t walk. He swaggers. Like some wild west sheriff taking stock of his town.

His arms hang straight down to the side, a slow side-to-side momentum in the hips, legs spread far enough apart to slow the ache from being saddle sore.

His tipsy ways make you wonder if he’s just come from the saloon or if he’s reeling from an outlaw’s fist to the chin.

I’d ride off into the sunset with this kid any day of the week.

Go buddy go! The description of that swagger sounds adorable. Next up....teach him to pull his own oxygen tank around with him!

Oh...I just read the update to your last post. Good luck in just a week. At least you will meet your deductible right off the bat eh?
