Flooded Creek

It was such an unusually nice day yesterday for April that I decided to take Benelli out. I stopped at a park not too far from us that is next to a creek. Due to some late snow storms and rain in the state earlier this month, we had flooding all around us and this park/creek was affected. Here are a few pics I took while I was there.

Flat Earth Cruise – but there is a Problem!

Cyber Gazing

A group of people who believe the Earth is flat have announced their “biggest, boldest, best adventure yet”: a Flat Earth cruise scheduled for 2020. The cruise, organized by the Flat Earth International Conference, promises to be a lovely time. Flat earthers – who include the rapper B.o.B. and reality television person Tila Tequila – will be able to enjoy restaurants, swimming pools and perhaps even an artificial surf wave.

There’s just one problem for those seeking to celebrate the flatness of the Earth. The navigational systems cruise ships, and other vessels, use rely on the fact that the Earth is not flat: theoretically puncturing the beliefs of the flat Earth crowd.

Sick Bella

A couple weeks ago my sister asked me to check on her puppy, Bella, during the day while she was at work. They switched her food and forgot to do it slowly, so Bella was not feeling the best.

Visiting Storm’s and My Spots

I decided to take Benelli to Storm and my old places. This is the first place I chose to visit, a park not far from where we live. I didn’t take as many pics as I would have liked since everything is turning anything but the color of green. Maybe we can try again in the spring next year.

As expected, it was difficult visiting the park without Storm. But I was proud of myself for not crying. I know I will try to bring Benelli to the other places, although I’m not sure I will bring him to a place more than once. I want to create new memories with Benelli in new places.
