Walkabout, Day 32 — April 15, 2007


Because I’d like to post in our Walkabout Project everyday and because we don’t go walkabout on Friday and Saturday evenings, because we taste wine on Friday evenings and usually work on Saturdays, I’ve decided to post past walkabouts for those days. Sorta like Throwback Walkabouts. So, I’ll be posting Throwback Walkabouts on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

And that’s kind of nice for me, because it gives me a chance to look at older photographs Vesta and I have made and I get to process them all over again. And actually, I get to process some of them for the first time, because sometimes I didn’t do it back when we made the original photos.

For this first Throwback Walkabout, I’m going back to a Sunny Day eleven years ago minus a day. Devon was four years old, there was a carnival in town at the mall. A mile and a half walk, maybe a bit more, but we did it without a problem. The walk back was a little tiring, but we did that too, even though it mighta been a problem.

Does Devon look a little tired? We’ll that’s cuz he was, but once we got through that door, he perked right up.

She’s pretty excited about the ferris wheel. She still gets that way every time we get on the big indoor ferris wheel in Shields giant sporting goods store in Sparks.


07 04 15 006


We’re starting to go up and Devon’s pretty excited too.


07 04 15 007


Okay, maybe I don’t look it, but I was excited as well. It was a good day.

There was some kind of carnival gave you played with these rubber duckies to win a prize, but I don’t remember what it was.


07 04 15 018


But if I’d a played, I didn’t, and if I’d’a won something, these are the prizes I coulda picked from.

Here, they’re looking up at the stairs that take you up to a long slide down. They wanted me to go with them, but I didn’t wanna.

See why I didn’t go up there. I coulda had a heart attack or something.


07 04 15 023a


They survived and Devon wants go to again. Vesta, not so much.


07 04 15 024


So Devon got to ride the roller coster dragon instead.
