Before Roadrunner

Remember the Roadrunner in front of our elementary school that I recently posted. Well, this is what was there before he was. Which do you like the best? I think I like this one, it is so artistic!

Worrying is like walking around with an umbrella waiting for it to rain.

The Howling

In the grocery store parking lot, we heard very loud baying and barking of dogs. You could hear it all over the parking lot. So we drove toward the sound, trying to find it. It led us to this truck.

The noise stopped, and this peeked out.

I have never seen a setup like this in a truck, maybe made just to hold dogs. The dog was quiet now, as he watched us.

It was not a hot day at all, and the dog seemed almost glad to see us. So I got the sense that he was just really lonely, and had separation anxiety. Buffalo Wild Wings is beside the grocery store, and the truck was parked in front of it. His owner was likely downing some wings and beer. Wonder if he could hear his pooches howls? Not wanting to disturb a trucker and his beers, we quietly drove away. A strange and sad encounter.

“Ever consider what pets must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul — chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we're the greatest hunters on earth!”

I Wanna Swing From The Chandeliers!

We have made several visits to the city of Lexington. On this visit, we walked the streets of downtown.

I wanted to go in "The Red Hen" for a bite. But it was closed.

But a few doors down, we saw this shop, and it was open!

Among other unusual things, there were these chandeliers. They were my favorite.

“Jesus once again addressed them: “I am the world’s Light. No one who follows me stumbles around in the darkness. I provide plenty of light to live in.”

Our granddaughter's elementary school just put a new statue out front. Do you recognize him? It is the Road Runner! This used to be one of my favorite cartoons. Do you remember him? What was your favorite cartoon?

Road Runner, I am curious,
      You've got me wondering why
      You're always in a foot race,
      I've never seen you fly.
You run along the yucca ridge,
      And across the desert floor,
      You run and keep on running,
      And then you run some more...
