take the long way home

Quick and busy weekend!
I zipped up to California's state capital, Sacramento!*
Hung out with Lisa, the drooly kitteh!
Cat slobber, ick!  LOL!
 Went to Eeebie Jeebie's high school swim finals!
(Soft focus, I meant to do that!)

My baby, getting ready to swim!
The beautiful boy!  He's way skinny tho'!

After the meet we took Bently for a walk on the levy above the American River.
I drove my Chevy to the levy***, but the levy was...full?
'Cause of the rain! And the snow that's still on the mountains in Tahoe.
and its MAY!!!
Gorgeous sunset!

All of a sudden, it was race day!!!

Chicken!  (Einstein chicken)**
Chicken!!

Chicken!!!
Chickens!!!!!!

Chicken! (Race director and cuuuutttteeee baby runners!)
Not Chicken!!!
(Happy Karen, we had coffee/tea b/4 we got to the race!)
Mile 1! Yay!
Heh, heh!!! (Those are the 5K runners!)

Finish line!  Karen wouldn't cross it b/c she didn't want anyone to see her! 
The End!!! (of the race, that is!  : .)
(What's up, Chicken Butt?!  Sorry, I had to throw that in!)

Why did the chicken cross the road?!
Bok, Bok!!!

Home again!  Miss 'em already, but duty and dirty laundry calls!!!


*I figured out why the State of California has no money. 
 They spent it to stop speeding cars in the Capitol City.
You've heard of speed bumps, right?
In Sac, they have bumps, humps, and undulations...
They also have lumps and table tops.
All for the same purpose!
For reals.  I am not joshing you!

**Karen clarified by saying "roosters."  Is 'rooster' and 'chicken' interchangeable???

***There was a classic car show associated with a street fair that was at the race start, so there were Chevys.  
We just didn't drive a Chevy to the levy.
