Life's Lessons

Number one: Keep your Dad or Mom from crossing the street at the wrong time.

Number two: Take time from your busy schedule to give thanks and contemplate life's mysteries.

Number Three: Give thanks to those who serve on your behalf...

... and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Physical Therapy - Part One

As promised, here is a pictorial of my under water treadmill - Physical Therapy session...

Here, Dad is helping me slip into my safety harness:

Then we had a surprise visitor! It's Chica Bonita!! Chica and I are buddies! You know Chica from here as well! (I once stole an artichoke pie and Chica ate it. We are good team mates like that!)

In the tank I go...

waiting for the water to get to the correct height and the exercise to begin!

And we're off and running! (Ok, just walking...) As you can see, the water is a little high today - to help me since I've been a bit sore lately.

Here you can see I'm doing 1.8 MPH at the 7:55 mark...

Overview perspective...

Hey! There's Chica!

Done! Now, just waiting for the water to drain...oh ho-hum... There's JoAnn in the background making room for me to get out and dry off before the Acupuncture session (A later pictorial).

Hello All! We're back!

Shoosh! What a couple of months it has been. So much to say and so little words!

Here goes: Dad has been busy (enough about him). Mahti and I have been rather busy ourselves! Mahti is holding down the fort as always, and most times quite literally. Gosh she sleeps a ton! Sometimes I have to go wake her up!

About me: (Isn't it always?) Still doing Physical Therapy (see our next blog for a report including pics!) and doing ok with it. I had a little setback recently and had to cut back on my walks *ouch!* I *LOVE* my walks! Well, Dad says we can still go, we just have to stay on the grass and walk at a pace that is good for me. We had all kinds of tests done too. Dad stayed with me the whole time too, what a troop-ah. More on that will follow.

About the girl: She's sleeping. Enough said.

Cherry Blossoms 2008: Unfortunately, the Blossoms were not in full bloom when we took the pictures, not to mention it was raining the other morning :-/

There's the famous Memorial Bridge in the background...

....and some crew going by...

And an abstract action shot!

And then here we are in front of the John Ericsson Monument. (I wasn't giving Dad a kiss, I was telling him a secret).

Thanks again for stopping by. Look for our next post on my Physical Therapy session!
Love Rocky
