|Three geese swimming away from me.|
I walked around the lake once again. There were a lot of park workers driving around on the path in trucks and ATV's which is very unusual. When I saw Barb we commented on it and wondered why. I thought maybe they were looking for someone or a lost animal but thought it odd they didn't stop and ask us.
When I saw Barb the second time (we walk in opposite directions) she told me what all the activity was about. Someone had called and said there was a fire someplace at the park and they were looking for it. Seemed a bit odd to us. Anyway there was no fire and everything is fine.
There were the average amount of people scattered around the lake.
Only wildlife I saw were birds and the geese. The geese were very busy today, talking, swimming and coming and going.
Steps on my walk today were 12,195.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Going to the commissary is something that I enjoy doing. Today I took Ken along with me. He couldn't remember the last time he was in the store. When we go out Ken is the one who drives but today I drove him in my car.
He did quite well shopping and only added a few extra things not on the list. : ) It was nice having him along for company and his help was appreciated when he carried all the bags in the house and up the stairs. He left me alone to unpack and put everything away which is something else I enjoy doing.
As nice as it was having him along I really prefer to do the shopping on my own and next week I'll be going alone again.
Later on we will be going to the mill at Ram's Head for Happy Hour. Ken has invited his former coworkers there for a little retirement party. I've invited a couple people too and we are not sure how many people will show up but it should be fun.
Just hanging around the house till it's time to go.
Hope all is sunny and happy for you this Wednesday.
Happyone : )
May you have the courage and discipline today
to do what is needed instead of simply what is convenient.

Vee - Those little structures in the background in yesterday's picture are picnic pavilions which you can rent. There are quite a few of them scattered around and are different sizes. Ken has had his company picnic there a couple of times in years past.
Here is a picture close up of the ones in the picture yesterday. Took the picture as I walked by this morning. I'm on the path and the lake is directly behind me.
You all just have to read the post that Ken wrote about our trip to the commissary. It had me laughing right out loud.
