Chester and a Window

Chester has his annual check up with blood tests, etc last week.  He hasn’t had any shots in the last 3 years due to his medical problems, but a titer test back then showed that he didn’t need them anyway. He checked out fine physically, but we had a recommendation to help his mobility with… Continue reading Chester and a Window

The Last Day to The First Day

Yesterday was my last day of work at the Y and today is my first day of retirement. It was a very pleasant day at work.  I had enough to do to keep me occupied, but not too much to do so I could stop and talk to members and other staff.  Just so that… Continue reading The Last Day to The First Day

Love the Heat

Wow 2 hot days in a row – after about 300 days of freezing temperatures.  We went from having the heat on in the house about a week ago to having the air conditioner on.  Usually in the spring we can go for a month or more without heat or air conditioning – but this… Continue reading Love the Heat


Finally we have some warm weather and things are growing.  🙂  Actually, it is going to be a hot weekend – even better!  The trees are starting to open their leaves as we see a bit of green on the branches now.  By the end of this weekend, they should be pretty much fully open.… Continue reading Growth

The Bunnies and The Bird

As always, the show was great! We tapped our… Continue reading Celebrations Dinner Theatre – Footsloose

The Mob in Action

There are a lot of Crows around here.  Once in awhile I see them mobbing a hawk or an owl, and this morning was another mob day. I could hear them when I was still a 1/2 block from the Red River when Chester and I were on our walk.  Once I got to the… Continue reading The Mob in Action


I took a few pictures of Chester enjoying himself out in the yard the other day.  He would stand and wag his tail while watching for anything that might move or make a shadow for him to chase, or be busy sniffing to see if a squirrel or bunny may have gone across the yard.… Continue reading Chester

Canada Geese and The Red River

Today, we have a couple of pictures of Canada Geese along the Red River.  We also have the big tree across the Red River to show that the river has already dropped in levels and will now continue to drop throughout the summer. The big tree across the river is so useful to use while… Continue reading Canada Geese and The Red River
