this post is total silliness, but it's a thought that crossed my mind when we were at the park with Riley and I wanted to illustrate it. Lord knows I am NOT an artist, but I think you will get the idea.
This first illustration is the path a human being normally takes to go from his house to the mailbox.
this second illustration is the path to the mailbox "as the crow flies"
And this final illustration is how Riley goes to the mailbox
thank you for indulging me - you may now resume your regular activities!
