Going for a run

November 29, 2012

Last week before it started raining Robin and I went on some walks and bike rides. Well, I didn’t walk and ride–Robin does that and I run. I complain sometimes because Robin always wants to stop and take pictures. This time she didn’t stop much. She took the pictures while she was riding her bike. Hmmm.




They aren’t very good photos, but you get the idea. I’m running and she’s riding.

Robin did stop for this one.


She seemed annoyed.


Even though it was late in the day I got hot. There isn’t much water in these ditches now, but at least I can get cooled off.

Robin stopped for this next photo also. There is one tree on our route that has these funny balls growing. They are up so high you don’t notice them until they have fallen. I sure wouldn’t want to be hit by one because they are big. You can’t tell from this photo but look at the next one.



Robin says that this is fruit that is bigger than my head. So what’s her point? Watermelon is bigger than her head. She says this is the fruit of an osage orange tree and the wood can be used to dye wool. I think she wants to go back and bring home some branches.

    Rusty, Please tell Robin that my brother-in-law and his wife in Michigan collect these and sell them for $1 each at a sale before the holidays. Maybe she should have some for sale at our upcoming Holiday Market!

      She’ll probably want to hook me up to a cart and have me drag them home. I’ll think about it. Rusty.
