A few warm days
Really spoils me
Spring has sprung
A remnant of ice along the lake shore with a herd of yearling deer.
Where ski moguls stay after the ski season.
If you lost your Black Dog tube, here it is. I have my own black dog.
I saw a heart
A favorite stream to play on and look for arrowheads. I like this area since dogs can run loose and explore a variety of scents. It was dry in late fall and early winter so we came here often and played on the many trees bridging over the stream bed. On this day we looked for antler sheds.
I had one campground at a state forest where I spent a great deal of time with a couple who always had a the coffee pot going and liked to fish all day as I did. We just showed up on the same days without planning it, both wanting to spend lots of time here trout fishing.The husband and I went at the break of dawn and walked back along a trout stream going from good hole to the next. His wife took her time and would find us with a thermos and cups. She was slower waking and sometimes those blankets were too soft to get up on a cold morning. A fire was also started back at camp so we had coals to cook our catches on, but if fishing was good it had to be rekindled. For two summers we often met, but one summer I didn't see them. The wife had had some health problems and they were unable to travel. She passed away that year and I toasted our good times with a cup of coffee. I have thought of them when sitting outdoors with a hot cup of coffee, missing her smile and telling me, " I have the coffee going!" I carry my coffee maker with a small metal pot when camping, it can warm one up or conversation with many.
