"They stayed up all night reading the new translation, and the next morning Keats wrote a sonnet about it!" Roadkill tells Square Peg the story of "On First Looking into Chapman's Homer". Dawn Patrol ambles through Garrett Park and finds a friendly cat, a new cut-through, and deer breakfasting. Then with Danger Man and Half Full a meandering route through Chevy Chase View reveals large numbers of front-porch wrinkly-dog sculptures. A secret Shar Pei admiration society? A too-successful community fund-raiser? Crabby and Mr Bill emerge to wave from their front porch. Out-of-season forsythia blooms and golden ginkgo leaves swirl down to decorate swanky sidewalks. With cherry blossoms appearing in November will the traditional spring run be held this season instead?
