BECAUSE I WAS TOLD IT SHOULD HAVE SOMETHING CUTE ON IT...

Under the weather, under the gun, and neglectful of the blog, sadly.  It IS temporary, I promise.  This morning, I bet my dear friend Jackie (Happy Birthday again, Chica!) that I would be back at it next week (I am banking on Thursday, with a late version of "Travel Tuesday").  I promised her I would take things slow (I have a good excuse, I promise YOU), but she still doesn't think I can.

Yes, it will all "come out in the wash", but in the meantime she told me my blog should have "something cute or pretty on it" - in other words, get rid of the goofy dancing guy.  I think this might just fill the bill, AND serve as a motivator for the expected Travel Blog next week.  Captured in front of an old mine back home in CO last summer, this little guy is a Rocky Mountain Ground Squirrel (Chipmunks have stripes that run from their nose, along their face, to their tail - just in case you're wondering).
And how's this for pretty?  Same area...pure Rocky Mountain Spring water - actually not...it's a stream, not a spring.
And this lone Columbine in a stand of Aspens (the blue and white Columbine is the CO State Flower, and will always be my favorite). Pretty, right?!
And more stream...I have to admit it is MUCH prettier than the dancing guy.  Good call, Chica!  Stick with me - I promise I have a good reason, and I WILL be back come hell or high water, next week!  Happy Friday - Happy St. Patrick's Day, Monday...I think I've covered all the bases for a few days - cute, pretty, AND green!

Happy Birthday to Jackie and she gave you good advice. These photos are bliss. May you be feeling better than new in no time at all. Healing energy to you dear...
I am glad to hear the difference from a chipmunk and a ground squirrel. I have Zippy Chippy entertaining me daily with his fresh Black Oil Sunflower Seed antics. Now I shall have to see if he is striped correctly.
