Playing Cricket

Greetings to all!  It's me, Mags.  Ragnar and I went on a great walk this morning - oh, the weather was Siberian terrible/biped ideal -- sunny and in the 60s.  But we had such FUN!  Come on along and let me show you!

Before heading down the water tower trail, I stopped to admire the sunrise:

"Oh, nice!"

Truth be told, I was enjoying the aroma from the garbage truck that just went down the street, but ... yeah, whatever.  Here we are on the water tower trail:

Me and Ragnar!

In addition to being warm, it was very windy. Check out the fur-nado on the back of my neck in this next shot:

Me and Raggi again; check out my fur-nado!

All kinds of great things were blowing by! I saved us from being attacked by a tumbleweed and countless leaves!

"That leaf will never bother anyone again!"
"Way to save the day, Mags!"

We did a little exploring:

"Wait a minute.  Is that tumbleweed following us?!?"
"Hi, Mom."

You can never be too sure with those things. 

We headed back to the sidewalk by the golf course, where Ragnar and I played one of our favorite games.

"Got one in my sights!"
"Me, too!"
"You guys... !!!"
"I missed mine!"
"Margaret THATCHER!" 

I love it when Mom uses my full name.  It usually means I'm doing something extremely fun!

"I think I'm up, 2-1, Ragnar!"

Did I mention we were playing Cricket?  And what I really mean is playing a little "catch and release" game with crickets.  Great sport!  I'm surprised it's not televised more in the US!  Ragnar and I LOVE playing!

"That was a great round of Cricket, Mags!  Here comes another tumbleweed!"
"I'm totally ready!"

An incredibly fun walk!  Oh!  And great news on the weather front - even though it has already hit 80 today, we're supposed to get snow on Sunday.  Isn't Kansas fun?!?

Thanks for coming along on our walk!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
