I just happened to love the bright colors of it, the "Made in the USA" tag made it even better, wore it about the house today before deciding to google the name on the label..........turns out Craig Taylor shirts are a bit spendy. Good to know that I haven't completely lost my touch for finding a fantastic bargain.

Running. It's my therapy, I gripe, grumble, rant, rave so much that I think my friends sometimes want to shove me in front of a car in order to shut me up especially on the days I decide to TMI them. TMI=too much information just in case anyone is unfamiliar with the term. Imparting with TMI is usually accompanied by groans, gasps, and "gross!"
Running is also where sometimes a friend will tell a story and you're laughing so hard it hurts and and you can't run in a straight line (ala Speedy Girl this past Wednesday) which is not good when you happen to be on a fairly busy road right at dawn that has no shoulder.
Then there is running with (wo)man's best friend, looking up, and saying "Oh my gawd, is that a skunk????" Yep, that happened this morning on our Sunday morning recovery trail run.......Fortunately, Elsie was right beside me and I had her leash in hand so was able to stop her from running on up to it. Brenda's dog Jessie (who Elsie usually follows EVERYWHERE out there) was not next to us. We're all shouting come back, Jessie is thinking there has to be something good out there since we all sound panicky, and runs by the skunk 2-3 times before she finally spots it and lunges at it playfully...........Tail goes up, I'm thinking that's all she wrote for the interior of Bren's car, and then the skunk CHARGES AND CHASES JESSIE!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG, it was the funniest sight, I'm just glad it charged rather than spinning around to spray. Talk about sighs of relief once we got away and quit laughing long enough to do so.
Have I mentioned I love my running friends (2 and 4 legged) lately?

There are some places I have the privilege to run that while they may not be breathtakingly beautiful by most people's standards, they do have just a little something extra that seems to soothe the soul and makes even a bad run well worth getting out of bed before dawn.
Can barely make out the church, the old saying about darkest before dawn is a cliche for a reason
Sharing the field, there were also a couple of horses but they wouldn't stand still so I could take their pics
Typical country road around here, most are paved now
I totally threw off our pace by wanting to stop and take photos but I think my friends were enjoying feeding the goats ;-)
The black one in front was the first to come visit Robert when we stopped
baaaaaaa, more please! And yes, goats do baa
Bit of swamp, last week there was a blue crane out here but didn't see it this weekend
I didn't manage to get photos of the baby armadillo, raccoon, field full of deer, the crazed squirrels, or the kittens that followed two of our friends (people that dump animals should be tarred and feathered on the town square by the way, grrrr) but I'm sure you're getting the idea why this is one of my favorite routes.

Sorry, can't post a pic of Speedy Girl, but she looks MUCH better than I do!
PSA: Dogtown Coffee has added chicken and waffles to their menu!
Cute Elsie pic just because :-)
