The Golden Girls enjoy the crisp weather and especially seem to enjoy the high winds we have had this week. They run and run and then they sleep and sleep. When we are in the great room, the blue bed is favored by both dogs. (You may recall that this bed is next to my husband's chair. Thus there is often a hand reaching down to pet the dogs.)
Lucy settles in for a nap.
When Lucy is in the blue bed first she doesn't have to share. But if Ellie is in the blue bed Lucy will plop down regardless of whether or not there is any room.
Lucy, I think you are hogging the bed, pushing Ellie against the wall.
Your point being....?
Ellie was lying on the blue bed. Lucy squeezed in and gradually took over, pushing Ellie under the chair.
Lucy, you are taking all of the bed and Ellie is squished under the chair!
Your point being...?
Thank goodness the South Carolina primary will be over tomorrow night. Perhaps that will give us a respite from the continuous political advertisements. Our divisiveness is compounded by these ads most of which are erroneous and all of which are very negative.
We have a neighborhood knitting group that meets monthly. We usually talk about neighborhood gossip, knitting, grandchildren, books, and food. I was surprised when the conversations turned political. And I was REALLY surprised at the positions some of my neighbors took. For the first time some of the discussions were pretty heated. I learned a lot about some of my neighbors that Monday. I actually refrained from joining in for fear of what I might say. After all, it wasn't as if anything I might say would change any minds.
One of my favorite essayists is John Muir and I thought of his words as I listened to the rhetoric.
We all flow from one fountain Soul. All are expressions of one love.
I don't know if I will live to see the day that we can live as if we are from one fountain. At times it seems impossible with all the differences among us. All of us need to try to think of one eternal fountain. We are all tributaries of that fountain. And we must try to act like we are. Whatever affects one of us affects all of us. On that note:
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!
