Take a Little Ride with Me - Today, for a change, it was not pouring down rain, so out came the little electric scooter and off I went on a short trip around the area. Today there was not a whole lot to see around here, but there were some bright red roses blooming in front of the fence around the doggie exercise yard. I gave the old Canon camera a taste of those roses before moving on to other things. One of the old pine trees along the pathway was showing off some crusty, crackly gray bark. With a camera in hand and not a lot of artistic sense upstairs in what passes for my brain, I shot a picture of the bark. Then I listened for the tree to say something to me. Nothing. Plenty of bark but no bite. Well. after all it is a tree of the evergreen flavor - not some kind of flowering (or barking) dogwood tree. I was becoming a wee bit bored. So I decided to commemorate this excursion by making a photograph of the pathway itself. I will now pretend that I made that curvy slab of concrete happy such that it smiled at me. I did make it back to the farmhouse before the next (inevitable) rainstorm. Image - Wednesday scooter ride - Gus Kilthau

That sounds like a nice short trip. Nothing wrong with that at all. And the pictures are just fine.

@inertia4 - It was short. It was nice enough. It was boring. Nothing wrong with any of that. The photos turned out to be captive at that toward which the camera pointed. All's well that turns out well. (Next trip - possibly on to Alaska. Might require one extra day or so from here in Texas.) -Gus-

@Ceerios Wow. Alaska. I never had a desire to go there. But I heard it is beautiful. Yeah, your post was cool. Relaxing. Even though you thought it was boring.

@Ceerios LOL. That's funny about the bugs. I know what it's like to be bored. I get that way a lot lately. Don't feel too bad.

@LadyDuck - Ms Anna - You know that old expression, :"Rain, rain, go away, little Ceerios wants to play. Come again another day..." And this area is good to look at, too - quiet other than for the many pet dogs and kids. Big change from life in the huge city. -Gus-

@Ceerios I hope that the dogs and kids are not too noisy. We live in the countryside and kids sometimes can be pretty noisy.

@PatZAnthony - Ms Pat - Right you are about the nice area here, And the scootering around really is good fun - but some of the neighbors have taken notice of my riding habit and are beginning to make a bit of fun of me on my iron horse. -Gus-

@JudyEv - Ms Judy - I would hesitate to call those few drops and driblets "rain," but I got back home before the wet got here. -Gus-

Go deeper in the woods. You may find some critters in there.
