Friday the 13th of September

A beautiful day for me so far,

And most beautiful of all were Sgiobalta’s feet.
(say SKIPple-ta)

Her name means “quick, neat, precise, like a dancer’s feet”
And I watched her tritty-trot about a hundred yards straight toward me
never breaking into a lope, never stopping to sniff or saunter,
just a sweet, quick trot exactly like a dancer.

Have you ever watched a Highland dancer – one of those competitions?
Their torsos and arms so steady while feet fly in precision and power, but unrestrained pigtails can fly?

/*nod*/

When Sgiob trots like that, it makes her ear-tips dance.
