March 30 is TAKE A WALK IN THE PARK DAY. Notwithstanding the condition of my feet (as you can understand from my March 20 FOOT TALK post), I thought I’d prepare ahead of the event by going for a walk on my post-erior, which is parked chair-side inside a blog somewhere in my PC, waiting to be liberated. So, let’s get a head start PDQ with a song befitting the occasion:

So you see, my fellow carcass parkers: as escapism goes, that really wasn’t so hard, was it? You might even say it was a walk in the park. Let’s keep it going with this humdinger:

Of course, if you’re a man’s-best-friend-lover, you wouldn’t think of taking a walk in the park without….

Speaking of walkin’ the dog, I’ll be doggone if I didn’t forget to bring along my pooper scooper — not to mention my dog. Wait a minute — I don’t own a dog. Nonetheless, my dogs are killing me, so it’s time to switch gears and leave the rest of the walking in park. When you gotta go, you gotta go. Like post-haste.

  1. It’s so cool there is a “Walk in the Park Day”.

    Colorado Springs has some nice parks, MM. If you would like to see one of the best in town just Google “Garden of the Gods” images.

      Been to Rocky Mountain National Park, but not Garden of the Gods. Probably more like Garden of the Tourists in summer. Anyway, Googled the images — makes me think I should be one of the tourists.

      • You nailed it about “Garden of the Tourists”! But at least most of them stay off the Park’s back trails. Mountain lions. Only city park I know of anywhere with large wild cats, although there might be a few in Africa or perhaps even the Indian Subcontinent.

        The lions aren’t much of a threat to humans, but it can be pretty unnerving if and when one tackles a deer in front of you — that happened to a friend of mine once, MM. Years before she went hiking again.

      Rakkelle, I’m older than any of those songs, so I guess that makes me SUPER CLASSIC (or super ancient, if you want to be contrary). πŸ™‚ In any case, I dig all three — not a ‘dog’ among them, IMHO.

    Some of my favorite nights are taking a blanket in the park and listening to live music which has become a popular summer activity where I live. :0)

  9. I love the song “Walk Right In” – and I love the way folks used to dress up for television appearances in the old days. I guess that means I’m getting old, too…
