Like much of the country we have had weather with temperatures much higher than normal and with several record-breaking high temperatures. With the high humidity the misery index climbs every day.
The dogs get most of their exercise very early in the mornings. My husband rises before dawn most days, and as soon as the daylight comes, he takes the Golden Girls out for a walk and a romp. The girls just hang around the rest of the day, going out for potty breaks and coming right back inside.
Lucy is quite bored. Nothing to do but watch the birds and mope.
Ellie is the same. She just had an ice cube (hence the wet spot on the bed) and mopes along with Lucy.
We have been so discouraged by the actions of some of our "leaders" in Congress. So much partisanship on both sides of the aisle, and so little respect for compromise. I cannot recall a more dysfunctional Congress whose members seem to have lost interest in the good of the Nation and our future. The best I can do is to contact my Senators and Representative and express my views. And to keep informed so I can make an informed decision for the next election.
And for the weekend I am going to follow the advice of Sophie. At age ten, she wrote the following in a little book called, Always Have Three Friends and Never Eat a Bug: Never give up or lose faith even if you don't really believe.
NOTE: I just realized the book is called, "Always Have Three Friends and Never Eat a Fly." (Sorry I wrote Bug)
I must admit that I really don't believe they can work together, but I will try very hard not to lose faith in our Congress. Well, at least for this weekend.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, EVERYONE!!!
