Solitary Pigskin

(Toledo, OH) No children or dogs are so motivated as to keep this football gainfully occupied, and it sits in the yard, keeping a solitary vigil over the happenings in my one-third-acre of urban paradise.

The ball occupies a piece of underused turf near our cherry trees, lying there like a Ju Ju Be on the floor of an empty exhibition hall. I hesitate to ascribe human emotions to a prefabricated piece of athletic equipment, but the ball does look a bit lonely.
