Their favorite exercise comes when we take them to the top of the dam of one of our community lakes. Summer will bring swimmers and fishermen, but during spring, fall, and winter we have the place to ourselves. And we take advantage of it as often as possible.
Lucy is our sprinter. She doesn't know how to pace herself. She just runs and runs until she is exhausted and stops to rest.
Lucy, slow down a little. We're going to be here for a while.
Can't stop. Gotta run, gotta run, gotta run.
Lucy, you act as if we aren't here...that it's only you.
OK I'll smile for you next time I run past. But I gotta run.
If you will make me a cape, I can be airborne like Superdog!
All right. I'll slow down, but only just a little.
Lucy, don't go in the lake.
Why would I do that? You can't run in the water.
I can run even in this tall grass.
Maybe I can be a pointer. I will point out to Ellie that you posted only photographs of me.
There used to be a television show that I liked. It was called "That Was the Week That Was." And that's how I feel about this week. So many important happenings in the lives of Americans and people with whom we share this planet. Some of us have heart break because of the flooding, Some of us were excited about the royal wedding. And all of us harbor mixed feelings about the execution of Bin Laden. There are so many feelings that fill us this week. Not to mention personal losses and triumphs.
I hope you have an outlet for your emotions. There's no other way to get through life. Lucy tells us to let it go and enjoy every minute we have. So this weekend I hope you will do that.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE
