Your Host

I took this photo halfway through a walk one recent sunny morning. A hot air balloon was jetting westerly and Callie took off after it, barking all the way. She ran all the way out to the end of the dirt road (about three quarters of a mile) and waited for me there to catch up.

I know, you would rather have seen Callie.

The balloon was long gone by the time I got there, and there was Callie munching on some grass. At the end of the road where we turn around to head back, I usually crouch down and call Callie to come and give me a kiss, after which she turns and runs back toward home. This time I had to wait for her to finish her grass before I got my kiss, so I snapped a photo.

  2. In the old days they would call it an auto-portrait. One of the best pictures of yourself.
