Our evening walk with the dogs

This pic shows Mr. H and the love of his life......and it's not me. I don't mind....I like to share!

T & H enjoying the walk with Allie. She's trying not to get run over
I adore this house - all 3 stories of it.

We go on a walk almost every night so our poor dogs can get some exercise. One of the many reasons I love living in our little town is the Trail right behind our neighborhood. It's 17 miles long and has the neatest sites along the way. The house pictured above is our new one. Just kidding - it's an old Indian mansion that probably dates back to the early 1900's when the Indians built huge brick mansions in Osage County. That house looks alot like the mansion that Maria Tallchief, the celebrated Native American ballerina from the 30's and 40's, built in a town in Oklahoma called Hominy. Those mansions are all over Oklahoma. I guess when the Indians struck it rich with oil on their land, they built these massive homes. They are incredibly beautiful. If I had the money or the nerve, I would buy one and renovate it. But, there isn't a Bob Vila gene in my body so no chance of that. I like new houses. I don't even really care to live in anyone else's used house. How rude is that!

The trail also runs by a farm with alfalfa growing- in the spring it is so green and lush. I love it. It's those times and when I look at that I wish I lived on a farm or ranch. Then I snap out of it.

You can see T & H don't like to walk with us. They would rather use the more modern forms of travel like a Razor or bike. Sometimes, even a skateboard.

We had tornado warnings this morning but the day turned out great. A slight breeze but a cool 70 degrees. Perfect for our nightly walk.
