New Shoes!

Woo, everypup and everycat.  It's me, Dave.  Our fun started yesterday when the FedEx Man showed up at the door with a pair of new shoes for Mom.  That was nice of him to get her some shoes, wasn't it?  Anyway, she tried them on and said they were really comfy new WALKING shoes and so how about we break them in by going for a nice walk!?!?  Mom really knows how to celebrate, doesn't she?!!?

The three of us headed out and were having all kinds of fun.  Zim and I were being really good - and then we got to the crest of this one hill:

"It's just at the bottom of this hill, Zim!!!"

We could barely contain our excitement!  Do you know what's at the bottom of that hill?!?

"We're almost there!!!"

See right by that orange biped crossing sign down there?  That's the entrance to the Hudson Trail!!!  This walk just could NOT get any better!!!

But then, we got to the entrance and Mom said, "No, no, boys.  Not that way!" and started pulling us away from the Trail.

" ...  but ... but ... "

Look at how sad I look there! Oh, sure, Zim is smiling, but I think that's because he had sent Mom a mind-meld message of an even BETTER idea of where we should go - and I hadn't quite picked up on it yet.

Instead of turning RIGHT on the Trail like we love to do... we turned LEFT!!!

It was almost too good to be true! We hadn't been that way in years! It was SO exciting!!!

"Now this is what I'M talking about!"

It was an incredible adventure!  We have tons of pix to show you - but don't want to overload you.  We'll pick up here tomorrow, OK?

I think we should buy Mom new shoes more often, given this outcome!

  12. I hate it when I have to wait for another sunrise to see more pictures and more adventures, but I will try and be patient. It is just that it looked like the beginning of a really cool place.
