girl and her dog

toonman and i
 took
 a long walk
 up to we dont know what street
 above the tennis courts
 past the soccer field
there's another promenade 

it seemed to stretch on forever

 we decided
 not
 to see where it led

 we walked back down along the river
 its called cherry walk 

when we got almost home
 i reached for my fitbit
to 
see
 how far
 we'd walked
 only to remember
 it was charging on my desk
 oh well 

i did see a sign
 at one point 
that said
 79th street exit 1/2 mile

 any city kid knows
 20 streets/blocks make a mile
 so
 at that point 
we'd be home 
in 
10 blocks
 i dont do math
  i am not even going to guess
how far we walked

 i know
 we were strolling along for over an hour
 thats really what counts

  i took some fun
 to me
 anyway
 shots of dogs in the dog run

 i was going to use one today 
but
 decided
 this was more reflective of my mood

  1. Very nice picture Daryl! Sounds like you had a nice walk. Can you tell me a little about your Fitbit...do you have the One or the Flex? I think you mentioned it in a post one time, but honestly, I cannot remember what you said! Getting old sucks!!

  2. I don't even know what a fitbit is, but usually it's possible to google the path I walked and get the length of it. I love that girl and dog photos. She looks so relaxed and happy in her sweats on a summer's day. :D

  3. Fun! And I don't know why, but I *hate* it when I forget to wear my fitbit.

  4. I can't figure out what mood you are in.

    I am addicted to my fitbit almost as much as I am to my cell phone and ipod.
