I was pulling in to the parking lot when I saw this willowy blonde at the curb holding a sign advertising a local business. I took a second look to appreciate the view. I thought, “Wow, she’s standing awfully still.”
I asked her if it would be OK if I took her picture and she didn’t say anything or even acknowledge I was talking with her. So I guess it’s all right.
I always did like the appearance of this place. It looks like something you’d see in a small town in Maine.
I saw this happy interspecies family at Lake Murray Saturday.
I was feeling jangly Saturday. Restless and fidgety and nothing I could think to do seemed satisfactory.
So I decided to go for a very long walk with Minnie. We usually go three miles, to the park, partway around Lake Murray, and back. Saturday I decided we should go as far around the lake as you can go, to the chain-link fence that bars the way to the dam. That was eight miles. It tired me out nicely. I thought it would tire Minnie out, but nope. As soon as I let her off the leash in the backyard, she ran around in circles as fast as she could for 10 minutes.
I took this photo at the halfway point, at the fence that blocks the way to the dam, before turning around and retracing our steps home.
I did not touch the bulls-eye so I guess it doesn’t count.
Gratuitous arty photo of a girl’s pink Croc on a post at Lake Murray, with a fire pit in the background and a red post to one side.
Not posed. I found it this way.
This used to be a lovely little succulent garden that Julie planted. Minnie took care of that the first day we got her. Julie is a saint.
If I were alone I would just walk right through them, but I had Minnie on the leash and each goose is as big as she is, and Minnie doesn’t have the sense to not antagonize them. So I just went around.
I only see the geese on the path when they have goslings with them. I think the goslings go there to feed and the geese stay with them to keep them out of trouble.
The shih tzu had a sister in a pink sweater. We encountered them at Lake Murray. The woman who owned them said they shivered a lot and she worried they were cold. It was 70 degrees at the park today.
