A great warming this week got snow melting and me out to the park four days in the last five. The first surprise was that the the parks staff didn’t plow. Other boots had tamped a path that made the going a challenge to keep upright, but also kinda fun.
The unusual lack of plowing, revealed something fresh, new and disgusting. Dog owners use the park as a latrine. Of course, I knew that, but I thought the perpetrators were just thoughtless dog walkers. The thing is, these lazy asses don’t even walk their dogs. Pile after pile after pile of dog crap lays directly on the narrow, icy boot path…only at the ends of the streets that abut the park. (See below)
