I know it’s only Wednesday – maybe too soon for Random Randoms, but this half of the week is special!

First, the snow came – and finally went.20160131_125720

And then we had a sweet doggy visitor overnight.

This pup now thinks we are Camp Pichu (Pichu is his name) and we are the solicitous counselors.  He fits right in and we love him.

And finally, my Big Foot (although still nominally big) can be sans the big ßoot for short periods of time.

In fact, my podiatrist says not to come back just to tell him things are looking good.  Things ARE looking good and  I’m done with the foot doctor! I must admit I will miss him, but he says to let pain be my guide now and  continue to wear the boot at my own discretion!

I am so happy even though it is raining “cats and dogs” outside.

I am delighted not only for freedom of life and limb (a bootless life and a painless limb), but for sweet visitors, and emerging grass for foraging deer,

And because I just learned my foot malady

is common and more commonly found in ATHLETES (not old ladies)!

And now I can say, “I must have contracted Bone Marrow Edema from extensive running in  marathons!”

Look closely and you may find me in this bunch!

A Drizzly July 3rd Entering Town

Bill and I rode to town this morning for errands.  It is a drizzly day today and supposed to be the same tomorrow.  But, I almost forgot tomorrow is Independence Day until we crossed the bridge that leads into and out of our nearby downtown.

The U.S. flags were flying gallantly patriotic and stood out, even in the drizzle and even through our never-too-clean, rain spotted windshield.

And then we saw it.  A magical hot air balloon!  I have always admired them from afar but have never really been close to one.

Saw it from a distance

What a thrill!

Bill parked the car and we were within steps of a mighty colorful hot air balloon!  Somehow I caught the fever and excitement.  A little crowd of families, young and old were waiting to take a tethered ride. Balloon Rides Here

And although flying balloons of this size were never a part of my July 4th holidays growing up, this one colorful beauty practically screamed, “CELEBRATE!  IT’S THE FOURTH OF JULY!”

Surely the enormity, power and grace of a floating giant must symbolize our American concept of freedom as it defies earth’s gravity and soars majestically into the skies.

We didn’t take a balloon ride this time but it’s on my bucket list for an un-tethered experience.  For now, it is enough just to have been close.

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

Happy Fourth of July

This is a fairly long video, but it if you love horses and you love dogs, you will not want to stop watching.

It defines freedom, fun, play, and the sheer joy in living.

Thank you for sharing this lil brother!  You knew how much I would enjoy it.

California Impressions

Pal Camera and I walked a bit in sunny California

among the swaying palms and sprinklers’ irrigation

of green lawns and people on vacation.

A baby ran in utter joy enjoying freedom

amid the green of a grassy stretch so wide

it must have felt like Eden.

He turned in glee and waved back at his family,

Look! Look! Look what I found – a great big birdie!

I felt myself grinning for

this baby’s joy in life was just beginning.

Mom Look – A Birdie!
