We are all in the car and eager to go.
Invariably my husband opens the door and remembers one more thing he needs to do.
Mom, can't you make him hurry up?
As usual, Lucy hits the ground running the instant her leash is removed.
Ellie lopes along, having just as much fun without exhausting herself.
My husband and I typically stand about a hundred yards apart. The dogs will run between us several times, just glad to be outside with us. Then they lose interest in that and take off on their own.
We often enforce a "sit/stay" so Lucy can catch her breath. She seems a bit bored by it all.
Lucy decides that if she is to remain still she might just as well lie down.
Faces full of smiles, the girls head back to the car.
UK female activists have infiltrated the minds of women in nearby Asheville. On Sunday the participating women plan to show up at Asheville's Pack Square Park and bare their breasts, protesting the inequality that allows men to go topless while women are not allowed to do so. According to the protest organizer, women might be uncomfortable doing this, "and that's part of the issue."
Interestingly enough, Asheville has no laws prohibiting bare-breasted women from appearing in public. The statutes governing indecent exposure ban only the "external organs of sex or excretion." According to an Asheville police spokesman that means only body parts below the waist. The mammary glands would not be considered sex organs and thus the women will not be arrested. To quote the spokesperson, "They can breast away. It's not a crime." Sort of takes away from the protest, doesn't it? I will wait in
WHATEVER YOU PLAN FOR THIS WEEKEND, ENJOY IT AND STAY SAFE!!!
