This Morning's Walk

Greetings to all - it's me, Margaret Thatcher.  Nothing too exciting going on here at Ao4 Headquarters, so Cam and I thought we'd just share a few pictures Mom took on our walk this morning.

Dad and I had special Dad-Daughter Time before he left for golf this morning.  It was GREAT!  Anyway - so I already had a couple miles under my belt by the time Mom and Cam were ready to go.  Was I tired?  Perish the thought!  I was more pumped up than the Michelin Man!  (And no, Mom.  We did not stop for a quadruple espresso, contrary to what you and Cammie thought.)  I was ready and raring to go!

Here we are, heading down the hill that leads to the Hudson Trail:

Looks like we were just plodding along, right? Well, we had been busy, trust me. Check out our handiwork:

"Girls?  Um ... no, really, girls.  How am I ... Have you been taking Macramé classes?"
"Ha roo roo roo!"
"Oh, Mom!"

Nice braiding job, don't you think?  And oh, yeah!  Notice anything?  Since our collars got soaking wet the other day, we are wearing camouflage collars and leashes that Mom made for our great-brothers!  She let Dad pick out what collars we'd wear and he picked these!  Isn't it cool!?!?  I love wearing this combo.  Of course, non-family members seem to confuse me and Cam a lot more, but that's OK!

Here we are on the first leg of the Hudson Trail:

It was great! The squirrels have been busy prepping for Winter and we smelled them EVERYwhere!

We stopped to pose on the limestone chunks at the beginning of the next part of the trail:

"Isn't this great, Cam?"
"Yeah, yeah, yeah.  Let's get going."

And then ... ALERT!

"Wait!  I see someone!"
"Really?  Who is it?"

I saw some people, but they didn't come over or anything.  Oh, well.  Let's hit the second part of the trail!

Cam and me on the second part of the trail - in perfect step!

When we got to the end of that section, we saw people walking down the hill.  I jumped up on the limestone chunks to pose and stare at them - and so did Cam!

Mom tried to get us to look at the camera/iPhone, but we were busy staring.  Oh.  And braiding our leashes again.  Ha roo roo roo!

Thanks for coming with us!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  4. LOL love your braiding. Your mum must have very strong arm sockets as when I see squirrels well she has to brace herself if I am on the leash. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly
