Yesterday the girls were squirrel watching. They know the word so that we cannot use it even in normal conversation lest they run to the door.
It goes without saying that the lower half of this door gets cleaned often.
Lucy abandons the watch but Ellie persists.
(BTW: There was not a squirrel out there but I had accidently said the word.)
I don't know how many square feet the great room contains, but it is definitely not necessary that the girls lie together on the floor. Someone asked if the dogs are litter mates. They are not. Ellie is two years older than Lucy but if you go to the fourth generation they have a male ancestor common to both of them. I guess that makes them cousins of some sort.
As usual, Ellie was there first. Then Lucy plopped down beside her.
Is anything sweeter than a sleeping Golden?
(The wet spot is from an ice cube Ellie had eaten.)
Here we are on the cusp of Spring. Time for looking forward. Remember the old Billy Joel song, "Keeping the Faith?" I loved the words, "the good old day weren't all that good and tomorrow is never as bad as it seems."
I love what Yogi Berra had to say: "The future ain't what it used to be."
I feel obliged to use a quote from John Fitzgerald Kennedy this week. That is my little response to one of the GOP candidates who said that reading JFK's speech that separation of church and state was absolute made him want to throw up.
President Kennedy: "We have come too far, we have sacrificed too much, to distain the future now." and;
"...rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation---a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself."
Wouldn't it be nice if today's candidates discussed those enemies? But somehow they seem to think that same-sex marriage and contraception are the main enemies. Folks, neither of those is an enemy at all, much less a main one.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!!!
