The Adventure Begins

The definition of a true friend? You won't find this one in Webster's, but in this case, it is someone who flies 1/2 way around the globe, lands at 10:15 at night, chats with your excited son until 11:30 and still gets up to be "dragged" 30 miles away at 8:30 in the morning to see one of the Top 10 Fourth of July Parades in the Country.

No, Saturday was NOT the Fourth of July, but the City of Belton must have had the wrong calendar out when planning their annual parade. For this reason Peggy had to use her recovery day to see the parade. She was a super trooper, though.

On the way back, my son spotted Longhorn cattle, so we had to make a U-turn just to take a couple of shots.Good fences make good neighbors.

After a nice nap and supper of hamburgers and cheeseburgers, it came to venture out into the neighborhood.

On the outset of our tour

Half-way through, still going strong.

And then...It started raining, but that didn't dampen our spirits.

"We're Singing In the Rain."

Overall it was a 2.7km walk, but with Peggy it was like a walk in the park.

Stay tuned for more on our Adventure.
