Canopy Climb I

It’s not something I could do for a living,

My cousin doing better than I did!

My cousin doing better than I did!


it was AWESOME!

I got to climb two different ropes, one had a gadget that made it easier on my arms = praise God!  Jon swung me on both = aaahhh to be a kid again!


The swings on the playground were always a favorite… so was hanging upside down on the bars… maybe I’m just returning to my roots!?!

Jon Richard our guide/trainer is on Facebook,


so is Vertical Voyages if you too want to see the world from a different perspective.



I do like a challenge!

Even if I do have to build up some upper body strength!

on dogs

… on BIG dogs

I still want one.

Have to be healed of allergies first!

#2 more dogs available…


God’s timing is perfect, plus I asked Him to send one to me if I needed one, half of our pets showed up at our house. He’s done it before, He can do it again… plus I’m not ‘sold’ that I ‘need’ one … yet… God knows.

I trust Him.
