Dad, Walking

I love it when Dad walks around the yard.  He stops to look at the flowers.
 And he goes back to look where the groundhogs burrow.  He remembers things about groundhogs.  Like how they sit up when you whistle at them.  That's from a long way in his past, but he DOES know that groundhogs annoy my around my garden, so he thinks to look for them out back often. 
 Not that he could sneak up on one and see it, but its the thought that counts...
He likes this chair in the shade of the saucer magnolia tree.  I missed him sitting in it, but you can see that he is just getting up from it.  
I don't want to be too obvious taking pictures of him.  He doesn't like being seen hunched over, but that is his reality these days.  I just accept it.
Love you, Dad...

He's a distinguished gentleman. So nice he likes the garden.
We didn't know that groundhogs sit up when you whistle at them!
