Lake Superior shoreline ABC WEDNESDAY -"L"

I have loved living within reasonable driving distance  to two of the Great Lakes during my life: Lake Michigan in Wisconsin and Illinois or Lake Superior in Minnesota.  These two beautiful bodies of water have shorelines that are picturesque yet quite different.  Here I have three views of the Superior shoreline.  I think it's time again to make another trip to Duluth for a few days to enjoy this powerful lake.

A Hero Dreams

 What could be more fun than going to a reading by an author who was one of your 8th grade Humanities students?! A successful lawyer, Mark Ristau decided to give it up to devote time to writing. Last night a good crowd and I at Common Good Books in Saint Paul listened to Mark launch the first novel of his planned trilogy.

Chiropractic Visit for Wild Wendy!

I'm still not mobile enough to get outdoors to do a photo shoot, which I am hoping will occur soon.  In the meantime, I'm mining the archives for some half-way decent photos to post. Because of her injuries (fractured pelvis, broken rear leg and surgery to remove a hip socket) before we adopted her, Wild Wendy visits an animal chiropractor every three months.  This insures that her spine and other parts of  her body stays in alignment.  WW actually enjoys the adjustments and her daily exercises that we give her. What a dog!!

I am still unable to go on a photo shoot, but I want to acknowledge this day as one that we should not forget.  I dedicate this post to the victims of 9/11,  their families and loved ones, and friends who have suffered the effects of this dastardly event. Is working and hoping for peace too much to ask?!

The Drum Majorette

Four weeks post surgery! Walked two blocks and back twice on Saturday!! Think I'll audition for drum majorette at the University of Minnesota's Gopher's football games!

Sidewalk Musician

First Outing: Post-op appointment after surgery (3-week anniversary today!), a brief stop for a bowl of Cafe Latte soup plus a serenade by a street musician. Couldn't quite believe how that little trip could be so exhausting.  But, moving right along!!

Theme Day, September 1, 2017 Taking photo of a photographer taking a photo

I hope that there is still time to add this to the September Theme Day Gallery.  I had to dig deeply into my archives, but I found this of Olivia taking a "selfie." I had total knee replacement surgery on August 18th and this is the first time that I have been able to post any photos on CDP. Surgery went well but the first 10 days are nothing to write home about !!! Now I am doing well, and I am very happy with my progress. I still haven't been able to walk outdoors so my posts will still be few and far between. It's getting boring!
