not exactly spooky...but nearly!

OK, the summary?  I am an artist full-time, my beagle Penny and I volunteer as a therapy dog in a senior center and soon hospice, and finally, I am a professional dog walker.  Nook is my buddy and one of my professional dog walking companions.  Today is one of those busy days when I have to both walk Nook AND Penny, because Penny has her appointment as a therapy decorate pots....things are wicked busy lately and I don't read YOUR blogs as much as I would like to!

ANYWAY, Nook and I picked up the wife at her office midday Tuesday for the HIKE back up the hill to her office...she got photos...there is an enormous cemetery in between Cornell and Ithaca city center, and it is totally ancient and falling apart!  Pieces of fallen over old headstones everywhere, trees growing out of graves, it is a very pleasant and melancholy place.

Cascadilla gorge is just one of the gorges running through is hundreds of feet deep, and you can see people have built houses hanging over the edge...

Badass orange tiger was NOT gonna budge for Nook, even though he woofed at her...

There are many color combos that I like, but yellow and pink is nice....have an awesome day!
