A Winters Walk

I haven’t had a good walk with my sister for quite some time among the lake district fells. I’ll have to get out with her soon, and allow our dogs to socialise a bit more. It’s good for dogs to mix with others.

My sisters dog is a Manchester Terrier – he’s a little star and revels in learning new tricks.

  • A Facebook page has been set up for Chester – should you want to learn more about him.

If memory serves me right, the above photo was from Grike (488m), while we were returning from a walk to Crag Fell, at Ennerdale. It was quite a blowy day, with the heavens constantly threatening to soak us.

A Winters Walk

The Creation

When God had made the earth and sky
the flowers and the trees,
He then made all the animals
the fish, the birds and bees.

And when at last he’d finished
not one was quite the same.
He said, “I’ll walk this world of mine
and give each one a name.”

And so he travelled far and wide
and everywhere he went,
a little creature followed him
until it’s strength was spent.

When all were named upon the earth
and in the sky and sea,
the little creature said, “Dear Lord,
there’s not one left for me.”

Kindly the Father said to him,
“I’ve left you to the end.
I’ve turned my own name back to front
and called you dog, my friend.”
