Dental Hygiene

Sunday, April 19th, 2009

We all know how important it is to practice good dental hygiene. I doubt if Mavrik knows the benefits, but he seems to enjoy his teeth brushing as evidenced by these pictures taken last summer. Now if I could only make him sit still for his pedicures!

Welcome to Arkansas!

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

We arrived at our friends place in Hiwasse, Arkansas on April 8. Mavrik was elated to finally have acres of green grass to run and romp on after several days in the truck as we traveled across the panhandle of Texas and the rolling hills of Oklahoma. We’ll be here for awhile enjoying the hospitality and helping with the springtime chores.

Three Rivers; April 6

Monday, April 6th, 2009

We’ve spent 2 days at Three Rivers Petroglyph Site, New Mexico, a BLM maintained cultural site with a great small campground. We climbed the ridge above the campground to explore some of the over 21, 000 petroglyphs. I’ll let the pictures tell the story.

There are so many pictures, it's hard to concentrate on one. Notice the hand has 6 fingers, I wonder if the 6th was added after the original picture (as a joke maybe?).

Lots of aminals are depicted.

Lots of animals are depicted.

Lots of animals are still around, besides this bunny we saw a collared lizard and many birds.

The geometric designs are more complex than at first glance. If you follow from any point along the line you'll see that it is one continuos line.
