It's Monday

 

"Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!"

--from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland

 

A reminder to hurry up and slow down, again?

A cute story behind this composition with beautiful tones and textures! Great quote as well.
Ginnie Hart: He really was hustling along, Steven! Thank you.
He looks in no hurry Ginnie...smile
Ginnie Hart: He was actually galloping like a horse, Frank. It was quite comical. grin
Joli noir et blanc. Il n'a pas l'air pressé de rejoindre les autres.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Martine. As I told Frank, he was actually galloping along like a horse.

What determination! With this perspective, I'd be afraid he could just step over the fence! Yikes.
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean, Bonnie. But he did stay within bounds while following the others off the page to the right.
Goodness, she's a bit pudgy! How cute!
Ginnie Hart: She does have a strange shape in this image,Elizabeth, and I've decided it's because her body parts are heaving about while galloping along to catch up with the others. HA!

A fine looking animal.

I used to be a beef eater, but no more.
Ginnie Hart: We rarely eat beef, Ray, so I know what you mean.

he looks like he's on a bit of a rampage
Ginnie Hart: He definitely was, Ryan, trying to catch up to the others!

I remember this one running afraid that he would come to a closed door for dinner, Ginnie.
A nice catch on that hill.
Love the light.
Ginnie Hart: He was definitely in a hurry to not miss anything, Astrid. HA! I can still picture him running.
How powerful that bull is, it looks like he's going to come after us. You and Astrid are both in black and white this morning, I like it. Have a good week, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: He was definitely trying to get nowhere fast, Marie, but didn't worry us a bit. He actually brought quite a smile. And yes, about Astrid and me both being in B&W today...without even planning it. smile

They get really panicky when left behind, Ginnie. You have caught her agitation
Ginnie Hart: OMG, Lisl. I had no idea. Well, then. That's exactly what was happening...and I caught him/her in the very act of it.

Ha ha hurry up and slow down, I had forgotten that Ginnie. Clearly you are a fan.
Ginnie Hart: Well, Chad, some things are just hard to forget! smile
She could take a fall, if she's not careful! Nicely composed Ginnie, as ever smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, because we all know haste makes waste. (sigh). Thanks, Martin.
I was chased by a young bull as a kid. Looked just like this, Ginnie right down to the barbed wire fence. Special!~*!~*!~*
Ginnie Hart: Uh-oh. Not a memory anyone would want resurrected, I'm sure, Care. So glad you're alive to tell it!

prachtige foto van dit indrukwekkend rund op een heuvel....Ginnie

gelukkig ziet die afsluiting er stevig uit

have a nice day
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Willy, and YES, we never once felt in danger. Of course, we were both in our car while watching! smile
Is that really a cow?
Looks more like a hornless rhino!?
Ha ha... Everyone is welcome to the tea party.
Ginnie Hart: HAHA. Definitely not a White Rabbit, LC, that's for sure. grin

Hahah! I had visions of it charging through the fence.
Ginnie Hart: Lucky for us, Alan, we were inside our car watching the spectacle.

Remember - when you are retired, you will not be late again. Your time is now yours, it is not at the beck and call of someone else.

Running bovines can be funny, also surprisingly fast.
Ginnie Hart: When we are retired, indeed, Louis! And yet, we still try to keep our rhythms, of course.
I've never seen a galloping cow before, I like where you've caught the action.
Ginnie Hart: It was actually quite humorous, Brian. grin
LOVE the quote with the image. I also like how you used the light. Friendship
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ruthie.
Kind of looks like it might tip over. smile
Nicely shot.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Michael. It still make me smile. smile Thanks.
good picture today Ginnie... i haven't had a chance to hurry up since we are still sheltered in place....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: As restrictions are being lifted in many parts all over the world, Peter, we still need to slow down!

and it a herd it can make a difference whether you eat or not that day
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure you know all about this, Sherri!
Elle est costaud cette vache !
Elle semblait venir vers toi.
J'aime beaucoup ces animaux qui semblent pleins de tendresse.
Bonne journée Ginnie
