Sunday Morning in Charleston

I woke up this morning to sunshine, and temperatures in the 50’s. I opened my curtains for a look at such a beautiful day; my first vision was of a lady walking her dog, in her nightgown and robe, slippers falling off begging the dog to go and take care of business.“You woke me up,” I heard her hiss desperately “please go now!”...more
