When We Have A Water Break In Our Street …

… I have to see it positive and use the opportunity to capture some photos of the spouting water from the hydrant. And Sara wades with her rubber boots in the rushing water.

The Tribute Shoreline Nature Trail In August (1)

A couple of days ago, I enjoyed a short hike at the Tribute Shoreline Nature Trail, which is in Wynnwood Park on the peninsula nestled between the peninsulas of Hidden Cove Park and Stewart Creek Park in The Colony at Lewisville Lake north of Dallas, Texas. In the morning, we had some thunderstorm coming through. So, the temperatures were not as hot as the previous days. But it brought a lot of moisture, and therefore high humidity with it. After about half of a mile, I turned around to get back to the trail head. I have to come back, when the temperatures are cooler, again. But I enjoyed to capture some photos along the trail, which I’ll post here below:

Say ‘Hello’ To Zoey

This week was very busy. First we’ve got our hearts broken, because we had to let Lexi cross the rainbow bridge on Tuesday. Then I found out, that our local shelter is over-flown with dogs and cats, and they call this situation “CODE RED”. Last night, I talked to Kevin, if we are ready for another dog. The shelter needs relieve by adopting those sweet pups and kittens. Kevin agreed, we could take another furbaby in.

This morning, Kevin, Katelynn, Sara, Luis and I went to the shelter as soon as it opened. After a Meet & Greet, we decided we give Leti, which is now Zoey, a shot. We were told, she doesn’t like small dogs and no cats. I heard that before, and was determined that my pets all get along with each other. And sure enough, as soon as Zoey entered our house, Joshua waited patiently at the door (he’s cool with the ladies), Chewbacca watched her from a higher level in the dining area, and Ozzy’s back hair was standing up. But Ozzy wanted to play as a kitten. After a couple of swipes and nips, Ozzy and Zoey got along with each other. They chased one another in the house and played tag. After a nice walk, the dogs are tired and sleep in the frontroom.

The Holidays At The Colony Central Fire Station

Every year, The Colony Central Fire Station celebrates the Season with lots of Christmas lights and music. One year, a police office started the Light-o-Rama at his house across the park. The Fire Department liked it so much, they got some volunteers to help with their light-o-Rama, and it became a tradition. After the Parade of Lights, Santa flips the switch and turns on the lights at the Fire Station, in early December. From that day on, we citizens of The Colony can sit in the parking lot, tune our radio and listen to the music, while watching the lights, until after New Year.
