Photo Finish Friday

Greetings to all!  It's me, Mags.  Today, I thought I'd do a Photo Finish Friday, using some miscellaneous pictures Mom has taken since Ragnar joined our family.  I'll try to cut the chit-chat down to a minimum.  Ready to take a look?

Here we are on the first day Ragnar arrived at Ao4 Headquarters:

"Hey, bro.  How's it going?"
"Doing great, Mags!"

I know. We look like we've always known each other, don't we?

Here we are, the next day, on our first long walk together:

"Isn't this great, Ragnar?  We'll do this every day, weather permitting!"
"This is great fun ... but I thought Kansas was supposed to be flat!"

It's a common misconception.  When the heat breaks, we'll take Ragnar to the flatter part of the state!

Here we are on that same walk -- his first time down Hudson Trail!

Ragnar and me

And a day or two later, with his first time at the Kansas Ocean:


If you look closely at the little peninsula, you can see we're being watched by a Great Blue Heron.

We even stopped to pose that day:

"Hi, Mom!"
"Yeah.  Hey, Mom!"

I normally wouldn't do that without treats, but I was just so happy I couldn't help it.  Besides, I was tired.

And lastly, here's a scenic shot, as we stopped beside a field full of Black-Eyed Susans:

"Hey, Maggie.  Aren't you going to look at Mom?"
"No ..."

He's still learning!

Anyway, we still have some catching up to do, photo-wise (Mom's been crazier than normal taking pictures!), but at least that's a start!

Happy Friday -- have a great weekend!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
