Who We Are

Even Better!

Hi everybody!  It's me, Ragnar!  Oh, boy, did we ever have a great walk this morning!  For starters, it was cooler out than it had been -- when we left the house (at 0530) it was only 60 degrees.  Sure, the humidity was sitting at 94%, but there was a cool breeze blowing and that helped tons!

For the first part of the walk, we hiked the length of Hudson Trail.  We love going to the end of the trail; there are 3 Labs who live on one side and a Lab and a Mastiff who live across from their yard.  Usually they come out to say, "Hello!".

"Nobody's out, Ragnar.  It's early still, they might be sleeping in."
"Mags?  Mags, I think I see something even better than the Labs!"
Mags, off-camera:  "They might be having breakfast ..."
"Mags ...?"
Mags, off-camera:    "... Or they could be watching cartoons and eating Cheerios..."
"Forget the Labs, Mags!"
"What do you mean, 'Forget th--' "
"It's COWS!!!!"
"Is this great or what?!?"

It was so cool and so unexpected!  

Mags and I got to watch them for a while, then Mom started insisting that we get back to our walk.  Look at the guy on the far right in these next two shots, though!  He came over to meet me!  How could we leave?!?  They were such nice cows.  Very quiet, too.  Not a "moo" out of them.  Mags and I were very quiet, too.  We didn't want to scare them off.

"You guys are mighty friendly!"
"Ragnar ... we really need to finish our walk while it's still cool."

I didn't want to budge.  Especially with that other cow coming over to join us.

"Just give us a couple minutes.  OK, Mom?"
" OK, Raggi. "

It was so cool!  And no offense to our friends, but even better than seeing the Labs & the Mastiff!

Mags will fill you in on another highlight from today's walk tomorrow. Trust me, there was more fun to come!  Oh!!!  And I caught my third Cicada of the season!  What a WALK!!!



  1. What a super cool walk you had. We never get to see cows near us.

  2. I bet you so appreciate the cooler weather.
