Here's a collage Mom did of a walk from a couple mornings ago:
|Me and Camo out on a road march|
See that shot in the upper right corner? Mom wanted to take a close-up of those yellow flowers. Cam and I were helping - Sibe-style!
OK. On one route we take, there is this huge hill to climb.
|Cam and me hoofing it up the hill|
Here's Cam, nearing the top:
She looks serious, doesn't she? Well, it's a serious climb.
Up near the crest is a retaining wall that gets taller and taller and taller.
|Me and the short part of the retaining wall|
I told Cam some Ao4 history pertaining to retaining walls. Stormy told me that great brother Booter told her about a wall like that in Korea. It was real high, though - maybe 6-8 feet high. From a stand-still, a stand-still, Booter flexed his knees and sprang right up on top of the wall!!! Stormy said Boots surprised the daylights out of Mom and totally impressed her with his athleticism.
|"Wow, Zimmie! Even higher than this one! That's amazing!"|
"Yep. Us members of the Ao4 have a history of great feats!"
It's cool filling her in on all the rich history of the Ao4.
Speaking of cool ...
Nah. I didn't. I thought about it, but I didn't. I liked the cool, wet pavement, though.
Here's Cam again, up near the top of the next hill:
Mom was trying to get her to pose with our water tower in the background. Close enough! We were ready to conquer that hill, get home, and take a water break! Want to see a special effects photo Mom did with that shot? Check it out:
|Cammie stepping into the Little Apple!|
Pretty cool, don't you think? Oh, sure, yeah - the effect's cool. I meant my sister, though. Ha roo roo roo!
