I notice I have 3 cute kids staring at me, I bend down to their level and tell them it has been a rough morning I am really a very nice person and good mother and I was even a grandmother. I then looked up at their dad and told him, he as out of line and a "creep"! I don't think anything I said mattered to him but I felt a little better.
Back to "the dog" as I decided to call it. I am waking everybody up on this block if I have to, but somebody is going to take this dog. All of the sudden my day just got better, a guy comes out with a leash and yells "Wendy get over here"! Wendy comes running and sits by my legs I look up at the guy, with this pretty sure crazy look and said.,"please can you help me and take this dog so I can just finish my walk I just started and forget this whole thing even happened". He did, and he thanked me for helping with "Wendy" and he would let his neighbor know that I helped and was also really upset. So I calmed down and went on my way.
I am at the 2.5 mile mark still in the golf neighborhood that is usually quite and a good place to walk, I am heading towards the 2nd stretch of the canal road when this mini van pulls up beside me with the guy who had the 3 kids and says,"I just wanted to let you know that my kids and I were attacked awhile back by a stray dog and when "that dog" came running towards us barking I sort of overreacted". He also then said thanks for helping in finding her a safe place to stay. I looked at him and said "I am told the dogs name is Wendy, have a great day"! I start my fast pace walking put my ipod in my ears, press play and the song Zombie by The Cranberries starts to play, I thought to myself perfect timing don't you think Betty?
3 things I learned about this morning;
1. Try walking in the cemetery down the road instead of the golfing neighborhood. It should be much quieter!
2. Don't tease Glenn anymore about the Zombie songs on his ipod.
3. And I really would like to live out in the middle of no-where!
Just the journey to loose 10 lbs that is all I want to do!

|t's not that early in the morning, something I like about where I live is the sun is always there to say Good Morning.|
|I cross over the canal bridge on my way to the morning power walk that is going to help me achieve my goal.|
|Since there is cinder on the path instead of dirt it is like walking in really rough sand, that should help me legs, right?!|
|Along the canal is always so pretty in the morning don't you think?|
|I like to think these sunflowers are here from my back yard. Bless their little hearts:)|
|This is my 1/2 way mark the fountain is the entrance into The Greens Golf Course that backs up to the other side of the canal.|
|Great sights know matter where you look that is for sure.|
|The ducks and geese are always so busy this early in the morning, someday I will have my camera with me and get a really good landing of one of the ducks.|
|Cute little guy, don't you think.|
|I always laugh out loud when I walk by her, I just know that someday when I walk by her she is going to say "good morning Betty" :)|
