    Yesterday's Walk

    A dear friend came yesterday, and went with me on a walk I had been wanting to take, but did not do by myself because of Paul's cautionary voice in my head.

    As well as this magnificent creature,



    We saw
    Bunny
    Chipmunks
    Painted turtle
    Mallards and ducklings
    Frogs
    Red-winged blackbirds
    Thrushes
    Fish
    and many wildflowers in bloom

    And all this is an easy walk, right near me, on land that has been set aside since 1621 (I think) as a gift from King George I to a certain family, that then kept it wild. Cool, huh? Paul would have loved it!

    How lovely! Thanks, Karen.

    Death thought about it.
    CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.

    Wow, that walk must have been special - what a nice environment to have near you. I wouldn't see those creatures if I walked 10 miles here.
