My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Tip Toe

We visited the tulip festival . The tulips are a little slow in coming out this year.  We will stop back again and visit and hope that more have come out to share their beauty. Steve and I loved walking around the gardens in the early evening hand in hand with Cricket by our side.
Mt. Timpanogas is in the background.  We reminisced about the hikes there with the family and scout troops over the years.   Cricket and I are always happy to pose for a picture on '3' wherever that silly camera is! 


A  nice lady who saw us setting up the timer for our camera offered to take our picture together. 

The daffodils were in bloom, and we were impressed with all the different varieties of daffodils - large, mini, yellow and orange, and white.

I love walking through flowers with someone I love.  At the Garden Center at Thanksgiving Point,  we also found a picture for above our bathtub and three sweet pictures for the guest bathroom in our house.  And, one of my favorites: quoteables were in this store.  One of the quoteables on a card we picked up was:

Relax. Breathe in deep. Hold it. Let it out.  Loosen your shoulders.  smile.  Close your eyes.  You'll be surprised at how many voices you'll hear, whispering sweet encouragement into your ear.  --Mike Dooley

A sweet evening tip toeing through the tulips.
