Our Lucy does not like to have her picture taken. Most especially she does not like to be told to "sit" in order to get the shot. On these occasions, she does not look at the camera. And she does not smile. She doesn't mind the "sit" command if we are walking and another person passes, or if we stop to talk with someone along the way. But being told to sit when there doesn't appear to be any reason whatsoever is something she seems to resent. It's as if she were saying, "This is ridiculous. There is no reason to have to sit in my own yard."
At first she doesn't even acknowledge that I am there
Still not looking at me and still not smiling
Oh, all right. I'm looking at you. And that's all you're going to get.
Can I go now?
She reminds me a bit of my son when he was a little boy. Although Lucy didn't actually glare at me.
It's the last day of February and a crazy month is has been. We are really enjoying the longer hours of daylight and we know that whatever the weather brings, it won't last too long.
Our quote for today is from Charles Dickens:
"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:
When it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade."
HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY WEEKEND, THIS FIRST WEEKEND OF MARCH!
