Some old fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are had to beat.

March 26th -  a walk in the park  

Red, my walking companion

I love the feeling of fresh air on my face and the wind blowing through my hair.

Evil Knievel

Where I live is considered a mobil home park.  So, since we had the first nice day in quite a while I went for a walk with my new friend, Red.  Red was a gift for Christmas and this is the first long walk shes been on.  I can tell we are going to be great friends and will be going on many walks together in the future. 

Its not that I  cant walk on my own, but I cannot go for any length of time and needed some help, so the kids decided I needed a friend to help me out.  

I walked for about 1/2 hour and really enjoyed being out about.  It cleared my head and gave me some much needed exercise.  As you can see, nothing much is growing here in northern Ohio.  The only sign of spring I saw was a pussy willow tree turning green in back of someones home.  They are one of the first signs of spring here .  

didn’t see many people out but that is not unusuall.  A few neighbors were on their porch and they were conversing with the people on the street.  A man was in his driveway working on something and a boy was out bouncing his basketball around.  I didnt see any signs of a hoop. I went as far as the lake to see if any geese were around,  It was all quiet there 

Fresh air is as good for the mind as for the body.  Nature always seems trying to talk to us as if she had some great secret to tell . And so she has.

John Lubbock

Back home again

I believe  in the hands that work, in the brains that think and the hearts that lovebelieve in sunshine, fresh air, friendship, calm sleep, beautiful thoughts.

There is nothing like fresh air and sunshine!

I liked seeing your neighborhood and meeting Red. It is so nice to get outside. This morn it is very cloudy here and your weather and mine are alike. Looking for a little rain later on. Feeding my birds early and hoping for normality soon.

Great walk you had Ma! Thanks for sharing it with us! I see more families walking these days. Good exercise and something to pass the time!

Thanks for taking us along on your and Red's walk! Yours is sure an attractive and well-kept park. I do wish Tom would consider getting a walker like that. Like you, he's capable of walking but tires easily and public seating's not always available. Enjoy your day!

I enjoyed the walk. Sherry and I are trying that a little at the time our selves. Glad you have Red, help is always smart and welcome.
Love from down here.
