As you have seen from numerous photographs in the past, Lucy loves to have a pillow. She rests on our feet or shoes if all else fails. Most often she rests on Ellie. I never imagined that the very hard hearth would serve as an acceptable pillow but apparently it does.
If she were not sound asleep, I would swear that couldn't be comfortable.
With all the beds around, it seems strange that the girls would lie underneath the kitchen table.
Now I get it. The bed has slid from its original space. I think Ellie was lying there and Lucy squeezed in beside her.
We bought these beds some months ago after a visitor's dog peed on one of the old beds. We thought the beds would be just right. They are waffle foam and not too large. They have vinyl bottoms and nothing we could do (not even the man with the duct tape) seemed to prevent them from sliding. The much bigger problem is that the beds are impossible to clean unless I take off the covers and wash them. The dog hairs simply stick like glue and no amount of vacuuming will remove them. I even tried a roll of sticky tape especially designed to remove dog hairs. Needless to say, we will have to replace them. I cannot stand all the dog hairs.
I'm not sure whether Lucy is giving Ellie a little kiss, or telling her a secret under the table. More likely she is nudging her to take more room.
If you have watched any news (real or fake) you must have noticed a marked lack of courtesy in our elected officials. This lack of courtesy tends to work its way down and I've noticed it in stores, physician offices, and almost anywhere I go. Simply put...people are rude. And I do think the rudeness is worse than it has ever been. This week, let's all focus on being more courteous and understanding.
Next time you disagree with someone, remember these words from Ralph Waldo Emerson:
"We should be as courteous to a man as we are to a picture, which we are willing to give the advantage of the best light."
Yes, it's difficult to find the "best light" in some folks. But we can only try.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!
