The Hood

by cunningstuff

I live in a pretty nice part of the world. It is not fancy, but it is clean and well taken care of, with nice people living around me. I decided again to go with pictures, because this is pretty cute. Today we are going to walk the dogs.


Here I am putting the leash on. Teddy is very patient with me.


My love is also patient with me. I take a long time to get going.


If walking was running, I would never be able to compete. Iris however, would be world class. She is so fast!


We get to the end of our street, and the clouds and sun make a little show for us. Now because of daylight savings  we do not have any light after she gets home. It is sad, but we look forward to summer next year for the light and sun.


This is the field at the end of our cul de sac. Ignore the trash, that is rarely laying about, but there are schools and kids in our neighborhood. Those woods though, have all kinds of birds, and the flying foxes can be heard at night.


Who would not want to take a a walk with such a beautiful woman?


The thing I noticed the most is the amount of palm trees. I missed them from living in Denver so long, it was nice to see them all over.


Quiet peaceful suburbia, although I miss Denver, now that I am over here and out of Cap Hill, I am glad to be off the warzone I lived in for so long.


Teddy pulling me along. Surprising thing is I didn’t catch her sniffing something.


Tobi take a pose in front of me. I feel like I am losing weight, but then I see these pics and realize I have a long way to go.


These puppies really love their Momma. It was hard to get them to walk with me, even a short way, with Momma standing behind us.


I walk them 1.5 km every day. In the evening we walk them together as I am showing, so they get 3 km every day. Sometimes the weather keeps us in, which is sad for all of us.


Just walking around my new home, I realize how lucky I am to be here.


To walk with a beautiful woman, to be loved and trusted by the puppies, to have this, this is the way life should be lived.


As the sun sets in this lovely picture, I realize that I am finally happy. I am at peace and in love with this new place, this way of life. It is good for me, and I am happier and healthier than I have been for a very long time. My health is improving, and I am finding how much strength I have left. I am no longer the victim of my depression, but instead the master of my new path in life. My shining Everstar Queen has made my life the dream I never thought could be mine.
