Each year since I moved to this area, I've taken photos of the Halloween decorations on the streets where I walked Una. On our last walk together, I took a few. Then, twice after she died, I took a walk with Kung Fu Panda and took some more. Walking has always been good for me, and it will be a good habit for KFP, too, even if for now, with just the two of us, it seems a little lonely.
