Georgia's tenth Birthday

Today, Georgia, my BFF and side kick, turned ten.  This is the 6th birthday we have been able to share with her since adopting her back in February of 2008.  Her face has gotten whiter (as has my own hair) and she is not able to go on two hour treks, but she still leaps in the air when it comes to playing with her favorite toy and gets so very excited when she  sees me putting on my 'walking pants'.  I am greeted every morning with a huge smile and wet nose and I cannot imagine there being any better way to start my day.  I love her more than I love myself and fear the day she leaves me, but I try to enjoy every single day I have with this amazing sentient being whose joy for life and wide grin is down right infectious.  You can't read this, Georgia, but I love you my little 'stretch pants'. *In the above photo, Georgia is under the giant 8 foot sunflower eating the lower leaves.

Black Duck on Pier

I took this photo exactly one year ago today.  It's hard to tell, but I was trying to take a photo of the little black duck standing on the edge of the pier to the left.  Sadly, that pier is no more.

Keeping your Cool

How do you keep cool on a hot Summer day?  Why dig a huge hole in the dirt and plop yourself in it of course!  This is my greyhound, Bea, staying cool in the backyard
