Theme Thursday - Vacation!

Okay, so, this week's Theme Thursday is Vacation! I thought, I should write a story about one of my own vacation experiences. I mean, I should, right? But then I thought, "You did the first thing you thought of LAST week. You should do something different this week. Take a VACATION from the ordinary." VACATION. So that it what I am doing. Below, you will see random things that really have nothing to do with vacations, but since I am taking a vacation from the norm, I guess they kind of do. Enjoy!

  4. Loved that shot of the four dogs lined up on a stick. I used to have a very large dog who would chum up with a friend of his (also a very large dog) and go barreling along the path, one at each end of a stout stick. That'll teach people not to try to cross-country ski on the park paths.
