Fridays are Golden

March is trying to decide whether to come in as a lion or as a lamb.  The weather has been dreary most of the week with only one sunny day.  Today is cooler than average and the clouds look as if they will deliver rain or snow to us.

Lucy seems completely recovered from her severe muscle strain and is really anxious to romp and run.  Today is the final day of her restrictions and all of us will be glad.  She is one antsy dog.  The veterinarian gave us pills to have in reserve if she re-injures the back as she becomes more active.  Oh, we hope not.

When can I go out and play?

The usual snooze photograph.

This week's quote is from Anne Morrow Lindberg:

"The most exhausting thing in life is being insincere."

Wow!  I'm going to have to feel a bit more sympathy with Congress.  They must be totally exhausted maintaining all that insincerity.  (You HAVE written your Senators and Representatives, haven't you?)

Oh --Poor Lucy... BUT--sounds like she is on the mend.. Hope she doesn't re-injure her leg...

Love your Goldens. Every single time I see a Golden Retriever I think of you and your beauties..

We had snow yesterday morning (not much) --and even less this morning... The weather here has been fairly mild this winter--although we've had quite a bit of rain.

Pretty girls as usual. I love Lucy looking longingly out the window.

And I love the quote & your response. Ha!

March came in at 70 degrees today! That's crazy warm, but we don't mind. It's been record-breaking dry since the beginning of the year too.

Love seeing your golden girls!

tomorrow is Lucy's day of liberation! Wa-Hoo.

And AML is absolutely correct.

Have a lovely weekend with your girls.

Poor Lucy, She really wants to go out and how do you say no to that adorable face.

It's feeling more like January here today, and I'm secretly hoping that maybe we have a little bit of snow this week--I may feel differently if it happens though! :-)

But I'm glad your girl is feeling better and I hope it continues!!

Who was it said, 'If you can fake sincerity, you've got it made.' You know that's got to be wearing.

Yes, Congress must be completely exhausted... Hrumph.

Such a wonderful writer that Ann. Her husband not my favorite though even if he was a Minnesotan...:(

Thanks for your comments, everyone.

Betsy - We had snow as well. About 2 inches. But it warmed up to 45 and it all left quickly.

Robin - Wow! Like you I have come to take the weather as it is. Enjoy the warm days.

Troutbirder - I absolutely agree. Much as I love Ann, I'm not at all fond of her husband.

So hard for Lucy...she wants to run! I imagine you sending her out the door saying; "be free, be free!"
or if you are thinking of me at all: "bee free, bee free!"
I do hope she does not re-injure herself. Love that find some goodies.

I should write them, though being in SC I feel it falls on deaf ears.
