The Footprint of a Nut

Yep, that’s right…I took this photo because my shoeprint looked like the imprint of a giant peanut. Or at least, I thought so.  And things like that really tickle me.  A lot.   Kind of silly, I reckon.  Perhaps you’re thinking how dull my life must be to be thrilled by a peanut-shaped footprint.  Or maybe you think I’m just a nut.  Or a goober.  That’s O.K., I don’t mind.

I like that even at the age of fifty, I’m easily awed and have a great capacity for wonder because it means I have something wondrous in my life every single day, even if it’s just a footprint that looks like a peanut.

Besides, I really like imagining that very soon, I will look at my blog stats and see that someone has Googled “footprint shaped like a peanut,” and it brought them right to my site.  And they are thrilled to find exactly what they were looking for—the footprint of a goober in the mud.

    Haha, you are the biggest goober I know. 😀 Except for, of course, me. But I thought the same thing before I even read the post. Great minds think alike!

    I love how Wesley tested it out in Google. That’s hilarious.

    Thanks for the smile. I keep my eyes peeled too. First I saw the world through my eyes, then my kids, and now my camera and blog.
