I'll Take The High Road and You'll Take The Low Road......


It really was spring here yesterday....+16C, sunny skies and warmish breezes.

We went to the park in Halifax and, has been our routine of late,
in which Ron is gradually increasing his walking on flat trails,
we agreed to meet at a certain spot because Sophie 
is not permitted on the lower path which is flat.
 So Sophie and I headed up to the higher level trail.


That is Ron on the 'low road'
 and you can imagine, maybe, how Sophie felt about all this.
She had her eye on him for a few seconds and off she went to join him!
And since dogs are not allowed down there, he sent her back up to me.


Further along Ron is waving to us.

Here is a song that both of our maternal grandmothers loved
(both being as Scottish as anyone could be)
and may be familiar to some of you too.

    1. Hi Kathy. Yes, the hikes are getting back to somewhat normal but will take a little while longer for Ron to get back all his strength.
      It does look like a painting......done by a click of an iphone app!!

  5. Yes, that song is familiar. And poor Sophie, she's so loyal and wants all three of you to walk together. I hope Ron is doing well.

    1. Inger, Sophie has always been a little confused when 'we three' separate bvut she is getting a better and will go or stay with one or the other....all depends.
      Ron had a great medical report today from cardiologist and things look good with only a change in one of the medications which was making him sleepy all the time.
