Several weeks ago, I went to the labyrinth at the College of St. Catherine with Liam. I just now went looking for a picture of a labyrinth. This isn’t the best probably, but will do. Here is a link the the Labyrinth Society.
I know, I know. I am going off the deep-end with the dog pictures. But Stella just got back from the spa. Yeah, spa. Nail trim, bath, cut. Probably massage. There was just an article in the Trib about pampered pets. Shakespeare, wasn’t a dog guy; Schultz (Peanuts cartoon)”happiness is a warm puppy.” Can’t call Stella fat anymore.
Stella has been laying around alot lately.
200506060735 Gingko’s. Yesterday morning, I was abble to live a dream. Dorothea got up early enough that we were able to bicycle down Grand Avenue on Sunday before Grand Old Days got started. That in itself was a dream of sorts. But the real dream was that, after we’d gone done the avenue and back, we stopped at The Coffee News Cafe. So the real dream–that of having Dorothea with me for a morning coffeeshop thing. Once a year, at best.
200506030720 Third time this week. Today is a definite risk of rain though. I stuffed a jacket in my pannier.
200506020650 Ginkgo’s on Minnehaha and Snelling. Minnehaha brings to mind Longfellow, but that association should be with Hiawatha. Noble savage, anyway, for sure. Snelling? English name, I suspect. Govenor, general, traded whiskey and beaver pelts with the noble savages, something like that.
200506010730 Down. Sit. Drop it. Leave it. Wait. Take it. The language of a dog person. Increasingly my vocabulary.
Cloudy and humid and rain threatening this morning. Yesterday, not sight of rain and I rode my bike to work. Riding my bike to work endes up being better exercise than I expect it to be.
