Construction Continues

The road construction on the bank beside the road along the Red River continues.  Because of the cyst/lump on Chester’s leg, we haven’t been walking down there every day and since it is dark when we walk now anyway, we haven’t seen much. I did take a couple of pictures on Saturday morning though.  The… Continue reading Construction Continues

A Lump

The other day when Chester and I were walking along the Red River, I noticed that his right rear foot had kind of a wobble when he walked.  I had never noticed this before – but we were walking later than normal and it was light out that morning and I could see better, so… Continue reading A Lump

Rowers in the Mist

Last weekend while Chester and I were walking a little later than my usual work day, I saw a couple of rowers across the Red River, rowing in the Mist.  I snapped 2 pictures – slightly different because they were moving and I like them both.  I think I kind of like the 1st picture… Continue reading Rowers in the Mist

Mushroom and Bunny

One of the big old Elm Trees that I lost several years ago to Dutch Elm Disease continues to grow different looking mushrooms on its stump every year. As an added bonus with this picture, you can count the rings on the stump to find out how old this tree was when it was cut… Continue reading Mushroom and Bunny

Fluffy Stuff

Quite a few of my friends know someone who likes to take pictures of this kind of fluffy stuff.  If you know him – you know who I mean.  🙂 His pictures are more artsy than mine are – but it is still fluffy stuff.  I found it (where else?) on the banks of the… Continue reading Fluffy Stuff


So far my flowers are still hanging in.  The temperature has been dipping to 0C and I doubt if they are still growing, but they haven’t given up flowering yet.  The cover of leaves they have may be protecting them somewhat.  I think being against the house also helps. Most of our summer birds have… Continue reading Flowers


Happy Thanksgiving! I was able to walk a little later with Chester the last couple of mornings and got to see the sunrise both yesterday and today.    I took 2 pictures each day.  They are slightly different each time and I couldn’t decide which I liked best – so you get 4 sunrise pictures for… Continue reading Sunrise

More Fall Colours

Autumn is the most beautiful time of the year – but I welcome it with mixed feelings because it means winter is coming soon.  Winters here are long and cold and I spend as little time as possible outdoors.  There are some mornings when Chester and I don’t go on our walk and other days… Continue reading More Fall Colours

The Construction

I have no idea what the work on the bank of the Red River has to do with the road above it, but things seem to be moving along (whatever it is they are doing).  I could see yesterday that they have dug the road out and are preparing to fix that while the work… Continue reading The Construction

Fall Colours Along the Red River

Chester and I had our usual early morning walk when it is too dark to see much of anything and then we decided to take another walk in the early afternoon.  Its nice to be able to see what is going on if only once a week.  The fall colours are looking beautiful and I… Continue reading Fall Colours Along the Red River
