Walk Highlights

Greetings to all!  It's me, Mags.  Cam and I took Mom and Dad on a great walk the other afternoon and I thought I'd show you some of the highlights.  And a lowlight.  But let's not dwell on that - ready to go?

By the entrance to one of the developments, there are some gorgeous flowering crabapple trees by a big retaining wall.  Mom thought Cam and I should pose by them.

"Not feeling it, Cam. How about you?"
"Not really, Mags."

There was something else we'd rather be doing - if we weren't walking.  Can you guess what that might be?


Once we had that out of our systems (for the moment) ...

"Smile, Mags!"
"OK, but I won't look at Mom!"

We kept going up the hill and checked out a new office building they're putting in.  I noticed a giant candy corn and gave it a little taste:


For the record, I must agree with the original members of the Ao4 - candy corn isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Cammie stopped and struck a pose across the parking lot at the Pink Cow Marketing office.


We didn't see any pink cows, so they must have closed the office up early for the day.

We did stop and strike a nice pose behind the fire station:

Cam and me being very good girls

Just up the hill a bit from there, Cam made a startling discovery and called me over.

"Brace yourself, Mags."

Can you see it?  A box.  Or what's left of one.  All crushed up and discarded.  Laying there like a piece of unwanted junk!

"Can we have a moment of silence for this once-great box?"

Definitely the lowlight of the walk.  What did that box ever do to deserve that kind of treatment?!?

Anyway ... moving on to another highlight:

"LOOK!  I found a STICK!"

And it was a GREAT stick!

I hope you enjoyed our walk!  Thanks for coming with us!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  7. oh, that poor box! and poor Maggie for having to see that! you know, boxes here get flattened like that but at least we send them off to become new boxes. or maybe even shreddy papers! at least it looks like your walk ended in a highlight.
