It’s a blustery, rainy day in the Northwoods.
But I’m grateful that it is rain and not “S”.
I will be waiting for the May flowers to start showing up soon.
When you play tourist in your hometown, you get a chance to revisit your childhood.
You see things in a whole new light… through fresh eyes.
You also get to relive memories, whether good of bad.
This covered bridge is located in a small town not far from where I grew up. It is located in a park that I would go to when I really wanted to get away.
It spans the Zumbro River and in the summertime has geese that frequent the little island that it leads to.
It is a foot bridge, and one of the few covered bridges left in the area. In fact, I can’t recall seeing more than one or two of its kind my whole life.
There aren’t many places like this any more. I like to think of it as “small town charm.”
I’ve said this before, Thor is a very photogenic cat.
And he is quite goofy, too.
He often comes and lays by me when I’m working on the computer, and the other day provided a great photo op that I couldn’t resist.
Look Mom, I caught a mouse!
I will kill it for you!
Eh hem… sorry about that, wrong kind of mouse.
Never a dull moment.
Thor is one of the most photogenic cats that I have ever had.
He has the most beautiful blue eyes that make my heart melt.
He can also get into as much trouble as a 2-year-old.
For a few hours each morning, he takes a nap amongst the plants on top of the pantry, dreaming up ways to make my life a little more interesting.
