Mini Monday Hike and the Chiropractor on Wednesday

So coz Monday was a howliday I had my monthly chiropractor tune-up on today, Wednesday.  And coz the chiropractor be far away from my house in hiking country, we did our usual mini hike furst.  This be only a 2 mile hike around a lake but we seened lots of cool stuffs.
So right away we seened this Red-winged Blackbird when we was crossing the dam.
Then the trail got kind of icky coz it went right by a bizzy road.  Even though there was a fence, I keeped mom on the walking string coz you just never knowed if'n there would be a hole in the fence she could squeeze through and get over by the cars and get deaded.
Then we seened a chip monkey.
Then we seened a turtle on a rawk in the lake.
There was some pritty iris flowahs by the lake.
There was lots of Canada gooses there but they was not happy to see me.  I think lots of them was babies all growned up now coz they was so big you could not tell which ones was babies and which ones was pawrents.  When the babies was eggs, a furrend of mom's took a picture of the eggs and some doodyhead had writed on the eggs with MAGIC MARKER!  I guess if'n some doodyhead had writed on my egg afore I hatched, I would not take too kindly to visitors either.
Lots more gooses.  There was even more but they did not all fit in the camera.
We still had lots of time before my appointment when we finished so we sat at a picnic table and watched the show that the swans put on fur us so I made you a little slideshow of it.  (Click here if'n you cannot see the slideshow below.)

Then we got to Mike's Feed Farm where my chiropractor appointment is and we was still too early but they was showing movies.  I show you a bit of what I was watching.

Then my chiropractor, Dr. Marc, came and he always starts off my appointment with CHICKEN JERKY!  DROOL!
Here I is getting lined back up.  Becoz of Dr. Marc I did my whole Furginia hiking trip, all 75 miles of hiking, without getting gimpy or limpy at all!  (My last few trips I got all limpy and gimpy towards the end but that was before I started going to Dr. Marc.)  Thank you Dr. Marc!
