One Last Thing

And so the sun has set on our last walk on the last day of the year, a beautiful day, sunny and blue with a warm southerly wind washing over us. As the sun settled behind the mountains and the crescent moon rose over the park, a single star standing at her side, Duncan and I stepped outside together to marvel at the sight and reflect not only on the miles we have traveled together this year, but the miles still ahead of us and all the new people, pups and adventures awaiting our discovery. Thank you for joining us and for promising to come along tomorrow and all the days after that.

May the new year bring you untold blessings and good fortune, a strong heart and the willingness to use it for the benefit of those less fortunate.

Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on,
with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us. (Hal Borland)

What a beautiful sky shot! We didn't get to see the moon and Venus tonight, what with the snow and high winds and all...but it looked pretty cool last night!

Happy New Year to you and Duncan; may 2009 bring you many dreams and sweet moments!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I miss your smiling faces and little snow droppings. I retraced some of your snow paths winding about the yard and found mostly deer poop. The coyotes welcomed in the new year with a great deal of yips and howls early this morning. I wondered if Duncan would hold his breath as he did when he saw the deer.
Love to Curt,Duncan,Ken,Winnie,Pip and Olive.
