Last Sunday I mentioned that it was a Great Life. Well, yesterday was my Birthday and it brings to mind how the years slip by. Another year of my life came to a close yesterday, and today I start with the First day of the next one. I Praise the Lord! I want to thank all those that sent me good wishes. Gosh, that was great!! I received over 30 Facebook birthday greetings, many private emails and several phone calls. What a blessing! Since we spent the day alone, those messages and phone calls meant ever so much to me.
We did have a neat day for my birthday. By 7:00am we were out in the Park doing our 4 mile hike. It was such a pretty day, I asked Ms Pat if she would like to take a bike ride through the Park. So, after lunch, about 1pm we took off..
Here we are stopped at one of the tunnels on Needles highway.
I fixed Pat up with a little camera so she can take pictures while we are moving. She is learning how to use it and has my helmet to contend with. It doesn't take as good a picture as the Nikon, but it is a lot smaller and easier to handle.
Here she missed my helmet as she takes a shot straight up above us as we ride......I sure hope those rocks don't fall!!
This is an interesting shot of the Cathederal Spires. She got a lot of my helmet, but note the special effects reflecting off the helmet. You can see the Sun behind us along with the trees and rock formation.... Nice job my Dear!
As we came to the long tunnel near the Needles Eye, there was a tour bus going through. Many people don't think there is any way a big tour bus can make it. Here is living proof. I will say that not all tour busses can make it and those that do have a few dents and scratches. It's a close fit!!
We slowly followed the bus on through...
It was close but he made it. This wasn't a scaled down size bus, it was a full size 40', with tag axle and all. The big SUPER size ones can't make it.
We made it back home shortly after 3pm and the sky was already building with storm clouds for our usual late afternoon Thunderstorm. Sure enough, just as soon as we headed for Ms Pat's Softball practice at 7pm, the bottom fell out. No hail or wind, just thunder, lightning and rain. Needless to say, NO PRACTICE!!
It was a great day. Nice hike and nice bike ride in my favorie place in the whole world. Plus, with my "love of life" and now my "Personal Photographer". Now how can life be better than that? Praise the Lord!!
It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!
