Love the Lord your God, listen to His voice and hold fast to Him, for the Lord is your life! Deut. 30:20

Allen likes to run. Even in the hot Kansas heat! This morning was not so bad.

Sometimes I follow him on my bike and bring along a water bottle.

Things are really drying up in this heat.

There used to be a nice lake beside this house. Totally dry now.

Al likes to run in the country. We cross over the highway.
Al grew up on a farm. We joke that he went to "farm-acy" school not realizing that it wasn't for farming.
Running in the country you smell country smells....

and get to enjoy birds.
Unfortunately I find quite a bit of trash along the road. How can people be so inconsiderate to throw trash out on the road? I need to bring a glove and trash bag along and help clean this up!

Dry corn. Hope the farmer has insurance on his crops!

Today after about 3 miles, Al turns around.

Going back over the interstate. It is a little hard to peddle the bike up the hill, but the benefit is getting to the other side!


and back to our neighborhood.

I've got to hand it to both of you running and biking in this heat. I go to the cool gym! HA! What is that yellowish bird??

The first one is the scissor-tailed flycatcher (imature phase). Then the hawk (I think red-tailed) and then the mockingbird. I have had such fun listening to the mockingbirds!
