They’ve finally opened up one lane of traffic in either direction after a couple of months of construction on Harrison Street at 151st Street. The resurfacing was sorely needed.
It still makes for a bit of a delay — which provided the opportunity to take this photo — but it’s usually a quicker option than Lone Elm Road when travelling either north or south.
Can you spot my steering wheel in this image?
Maybe you could sell some firewood for money…
I spotted these two deer on Wednesday’s run at The Prairie Center. Can you see them out there, staring at me?
They must have been watching me closely and standing still as rocks, because I made it down that hill along the treeline and then halfway back up the hill on this side of the clearing before I noticed them tracking my progress.
They waited kindly for me to snap a few grainy photos with my phone — this one being the best of the bunch — before they sauntered off into the wood.

Walked one, ran three miles today on one of Kill Creek Park’s mountain bike trails. Mild temps, overcast skies and great scenery made it an enjoyable jaunt. The humidity made it a sweaty one.
You only get to see some of the paved warm-up leg because if I stop running to pull my smartphone out of its armband and take a photo of the prettier sections, I may never get started back up again.
If you’ve got a tip, or your own system for taking photos on the fly while on runs or the like, I’m all ears. Suggestions involving minimal, low-cost and light equipment are even better.
