Run with Wild Abandon

Nick runs from the minute we let him out until he plops down exhausted. The funniest thing is he can go from a run to plop down in seconds. It is like he is just suddenly laying with his back legs spread out behind him. (we call him Frog Dog) He never sits still for more than a few minutes, he is constant motion.

This is looking out over our front yard. After more than 30 years I still do not become bores with the view. Nick is running toward me to the "Queen's Chair", where I sit and watch the world go by. It is under an arbor and I can watch hummingbirds fly by in the early mornings and evenings.

Mari, your yard and view really are lovely, but every time I see it I think of something else. When I was babysitting Donald Earl, I attempted to back down that driveway in the Scout. Ha! I still can't back worth a darn! I will always remember the feeling that I was all out of control and being scared that I was going to wipe out every last one of the new trees planted along the driveway!
P.S. I think my children are in love with your frog dog and other doggies, too :)

I think I've only seen it in the chill of wintertime... and I don't remember whether I backed out or not... but seeing as it's on that winding 2 lane road... *ahem* where cars are known to veeeeeer off... I think I'd take the time to turn around and head out hood first!

Nice Nick Pic.
