Get up, you're going to sleep your life away!

This morning I woke up early--three-frickin-thirty in the morning--and couldn't get back to sleep. Danged aging process! I thought I'd make the most of it and try out Sun's Virtual Box.

(Yes, it was night and I was alone and on the computer playing with something called Virtual Box. Fer cryin' out loud get yer mind outta the gutter!)

Just for grins I wanted to get a virtual copy of Win XP running on the iMac. The Virtual Box installation went well. The Windows installation kept failing. Bummer.

Rather than mope around until it was time to go to work, I decided to leave early and take the scenic route. I followed Hastings to Mill to Waikiki to Rutter Parkway to Nine Mile and rode the Centennial Trail to the West Central neighborhood. I would generously allow that 20 of the 27 miles were near nature. I brought the camera along because my experience has shown that opportunities abound on that route.

I stopped for a group of turkey hens shepherding their young charges across the road.

A doe and her fawn caught my attention. And I theirs.

I couldn't believe I had the trail to myself for miles until I saw a jogger by SFCC.
