"We're ready to roll, Mom! Let's go!"
OK, then; let's head out!
Here is a shot of Maggie and me heading down a path that goes through some woods.
|"Remember to stay alert, Mags!"|
"You, too, Cam!"
You never know what's going to be beyond that bend - deer, turkeys, or ...
... a sneak attack from your little sister! Well, now I know what she meant by "You, too." Hmm.
Further along that path is a meadow, where we often see small birdies like Meadowlarks, Kingbirds, and ...
... Robins. She has a "thing" for Robins. I can't explain it! She's always stalking Robins.
|" ...'Stalkin' Robins. Tweet. Tweet. Tweet. |
Stalkin' Robins. Tweet. Tweedly-dee.
Mag is stalkin' robins cuz we're really gonna rock tonight...'
No need to thank me or my mom for the ear worm."
Once we get up to the high ground, we have a great view of the area. Those trees that you see are the trees around the Kansas Ocean, and that big grey house sits right across the street from it. Maggie spotted some people walking their dogs way down at the bottom of the hill, so we both sat down. (It's what we do.)
|"Look, Cam! They have two English Sheepdogs and an Irish Wolfhound."|
"Oh, OK. I know who they are. They don't come up this way."
I know pretty much who's who in the neighborhood and which way they go. Maggie is still learning. Those guys are always on leashes, so it's not a problem where they go.
And finally, here we are, arriving back at Ao4 Headquarters.
|"Great walk, Cam and Mom!"|
"It sure was!"
I hope everyone had fun! Let's get inside - the drinks are on me!
