My Favorite Trick-or-Treaters...

Their pet parrot {and caretaker}...
...and of course all scallywags need a proper Pirate Ship...
Made by Uncle Bummy and his most creative mind.
                                                                     What a fun night!

Happy Pumpkin Day!

Brought to you by a front porch stumbled upon during a walk in Old Town Alexandria, VA.

Meet SI the Cow...

She really likes apples.
Reaching under the fence and snatching the fallen treats works...
...but busting through is even better.

Yes indeed, The Grand Canyon.
A short little getaway prior to Fritz's Conference in Phoenix.
We managed to get in two days of hiking down into the canyon before the public park was shutdown to us, the public.
Along the way we chatted with people from all over the globe including an older-than-us couple in the final steps of a five day rim to rim journey, another duo just taking the first steps on their matching trek, and children from New Zealand who just wanted to get to Disneyland.
And then there were these encounters:

I was just proud to have the guts to go down a bit....and make the climb back up.
We made it about as far at the red dot, a three hour hike.
Such pretty sights along the way.

In the end, a glorious sunset.

Good Morning

I felt a bit small with today's dawn... the best way possible.
