Happy Birthday, Robinson!

Happy Birthday, Robinson!

I've noticed lately that he's slowing down quite a bit, not so eager to get up in the morning, showing signs of stiffness in the joints. However, he's looking pretty good for twelve! I'm going to try to take him somewhere nice for a walk today, hoping that it doesn't RAIN.

It Didn't Rain

In fact, the sun came out and it was a beautiful afternoon!

So I played hooky from marking and took Robinson to Thetis Lake for a lovely birthday hike, which he enjoyed immensely, as you can see.

The erythroniums (easter lilies) were just starting to appear, there were shooting stars in bud, and I found a satin flower - a sure sign of spring
