I look down a lot while walking the circle where we live. The road is paved with very uneven rocks of all sizes ___easy to trip on___ fire ants move their hills often, and we sometimes see snakes, including the very venomous coral snake. Just last week, one measly fire ant bite and I was loopy for two days with oral and topical antihistamines for the burning itch.
This morning I decided to pick up random objects as I walked to draw later at home. A few rocks and oak leaves, the outer shell of a pecan, a weird chunk of wood, a torn bit of a baseball ___a very sweet German Shepherd seems to enjoy destroying balls___, even a discarded adapter and 12 cents!
