My Walking Stats 
June 16, 2024
35 minutes
3,892 steps
1.2 miles
Start temp @7:30am,68 degrees
Ending temp @8:05am, 71 degrees

Me, myself and my mind’s eye captured another snuggle session with Kokee, my BFF German Shepherd.  (I asked mom, Karen, to spell it for me). Once again Kokee, walked right up to me…gave my hand a several licks then offered her head for a rub.  They were at the end of a 2 mile walk and thirsty. It was a short, but sweet meet greet. EMW at 68 degrees the dewpoint is also about 68%, is toasty... I can't imagine how hot it is with furs!! 

I knew Kokee was named after a State park in Hawaii


but didn't know how to spell it.


  1. Sounds like you are developing a lovely relationship with Kokee. Now we wonder about the story behind her being named after a state park in Hawaii?

  2. the irish saying is very very true... and if you have more than one friend, you are either on a clover field or in blogville ;O)

    Delightful scene, fine stats, fab meeting! Great start to the week 😃 YAM xx

  4. Kokee has found a new friend.

  5. your temps are cold to us, we walk at daybreak, 6:15 now in 80 degrees, and humidity dripping off our faces and that is before the sun comes up. by 8 am its mid 80s' and last night at 8 pm it was 98 on the fence thermometer. at 8:15 we had the mother of a storm for 45 minutes, 4 inches in 45 minutes and I have never heard thunder like this one. it sounded like God was bowling with 10 bowling balls and they were all rolling down concrete steps from heaven right on our heads. even bob could hear it. I thought the rain would rip the shingles off the roof. it is clear now, and 79 degrees, we will walk at 6:15
    so happy you have made a new friend and one that is part Hawaiian ha ha

  6. Very pretty picture that you took in the early morning. All the sudden the heat and humidity are going to be here starting today. 95 by tomorrow.

  7. Great quote! Good friends are a real treasure to have. We just have rain and storms constantly. Summer is not our time of year with storms, heat and humidity. We love winter.

  8. Love your photo and the Irish proverb is true! I think you and Kokee are friends :)

  9. Early mornings walks can be magical, with the light *just so*.

    How wonderful to have Kokee as a friend now, that's really special!

  10. You have a wonderful friend in Kokee! The palm on your early morning walk is so pretty.

  11. Dearest Cecilia,
    Lovely encounter again with Kōke'e and it seems a very sweet dog.

  13. We would love to see pictures of you and Kokee enjoying each other's company. Stay cool this week. We're heading into a heat wave here too.

  14. Lovely ~ Kokee is a gift ~ enjoy ~ great Spark too. ~

  15. Great Spark as always and love your walk. I do 5,000 steps 5 days a week. Wednesday is my day off.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Love and hugs, my friend. ♥

  16. Such a pretty EMW capture...Your temps are about the same as yours in the morning...luckily, we don't have the humidity you do.
    Happy BAR Anniversary!

  17. Absolutely love your Spark!!! Mom walks each of us for about the same amount of time. We bet her stats are very similar, just double. She is quite warm by the time she is done.

  18. Great spark . Kuddos to you for your walking. XO

  19. I'm so glad you got to see Kokee. I left the house before six am and the temps were already mid-70's and climbing. Calendar or no calendar, it's summer.

  20. What a great walk you have around the neighborhood - that plant is HUGE!!!!!!!

    Hugs, Pam

  21. A nanner tree! YEA! I wonder how it fares through the winters? Must do pretty dried well. It's a good size. Loved seeing your stats!

  22. That is a lovely early morning view, and a great Spark. At last it is getting warmer here in the high 60s. I am quite happy if it stays at that.

  23. 1. I love your new header. 2. Can't wait to see a picture of Kokee (glad you learned to spell her name). 3. The quote is so very true. and 4. Keep on walkin'!


Please leave a meow or bark for Angel Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
