A New Adventure and Something for You!

Nothing can keep this Wild Rider down for long. Yeah, it’s been two long months, but I am ready to roll! I am taking a little trip and running a contest.

Where in the World is the Wild Rider?

It’s really easy. All you have to do is guess where I am! The winner will get a souvenir from my trip. Okay. I know what you are thinking. “What if we all guess the correct answer?” The most specific one will win. Otherwise, I will pick a name out of a hat.

I have a new toy. It’s a Sony Alpha NEX-3N Digital SLR camera. Taking great photos just got a lot easier. I have enjoyed messing around with options like the macro feature for this shot.

garden01I could never get the raindrops to show up with my compact digital or Droid phone.


This is Roxy’s new friend, Pepper. My son Kelly  took this amazing shot. Amazing because of the shutter speed and this male dog’s long eyelashes!

I am an alpha male grrrrrI’m an alpha male. Really! …grrrrr…

This camera is so cool! It is super small and lightweight, but can handle a macro and telephoto lens (added to my Christmas list already). Perfect for a trip abroad. Oh. Did I give it away?

So, here’s the delio. I will post a photo with the title, Where in the World is the Wild Rider? Leave your answer in the comment section.

I will be off gallivanting in the countryside somewhere, so I won’t have a lot of time to comment. I will be too busy picking out prizes for the contest…

Are you going on vacation?

  1. Are those pictures supposed to be clues as to your destination? If so, I’m bummed, cuz I’m pretty sure there are dogs pretty much everywhere.

    I think I remember reading in another of your posts that you were going to Europe, but I can’t remember where specifically, so I’m going to have to give it some more thought. Italy maybe, France?

    Where ever you’re heading, have a super wonderful and relaxing time. You so deserve it. And take care of yourself, you’re still healing, Missy.

  2. So glad that you’re taking a trip. After all the hospital and doctor stuff and the recoop you and your dude definitely need an escape. Can’t wait to guess your destination:) Have a wild time!


  3. Have an awesome trip! I actually just cancelled our summer trip across country because I have a recently broken foot, complete with torn tendon, and I have surgery next week. After that, I won’t be able to bear any weight on it for 4 weeks, followed by PT and the like. It’s my summer to be taken care of right here at home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.


      1. This is definitely the best time of year here. It’s not too hot or too wet (usually). And everything is green. But still getting used to not really having 4 distinct seasons (I grew up outside of Boston).


  4. Woo hoo! Good for you, you deserve it! Have a fabulous trip and can’t wait to play along. I was always a fan of Carmen San Diego so I’m feeling pretty good about winning haha! Can’t wait to hear all about your fab vacation, wherever you may be!


  5. Hmmm – I guess I am disqualified! hehe! Have a wonderful time (how can you not???) and take a bazillion fabulous photos to send back to us! Can’t wait to hear all about the adventure. Safe travels to you and Danny!


  6. What great photos! I’d love to get a new camera, but then I’m afraid somebody would expect me to read the directions and figure out how to use it. That’s something I’m planning to do with my VCR (which is still blinking 12:00)

    I AM going on vaca as well. Does the expression “Pip, pip, cheerio” mean anything to you? Yup, you guessed it – Alaska!

    Have a great trip!


  7. You’re at the French Market in New Orleans, sipping on chicory coffee and munching on a beignet. Man, do I want to be doing that right about now.
    PS- If this guess is correct, you might want to leave out the coffee part, since I’m off the stuff until Sunday. Muchas gracias Colorado….


  8. Yeah! Welcome back Susie. I want eyelashes like your new dog’s. Well, maybe not. Really, are they fake?? Happy travels. I can’t begin to guess where.
