Summer arrived here with a week of unseasonably hot temperatures. It is extremely rare for us to approach 90 degrees even in August. We've had thunderstorms most afternoons which briefly (VERY briefly) cooled the air then made everything worse with the higher humidity. As the old saying goes, "When it's hot in the mountains, it's HOT."
So our Lucy goes for her run very early in the morning. Then she stays inside except for those necessary little trips outdoors. With her two coats of hair, she does not tolerate heat well at all.
She lies around most of the day. For some reason she likes to rest her head on the rung of a chair.
(Yes, I do dust them. The pictures were taken before cleaning day.)
She peeps out under the chair
This is where her head lies
So what? I'm not ashamed to be here.
Today's quotes comes from a song I loved half a century ago. I still love it and still play the vinyl by The Youngbloods every now and then. (Yes, I have kept many of my old LPs and have a reproduction stereo that will play them. There's something so soothing to listen to them and reminisce about the good old days.)
It was written by American songwriter and singer Chet Powers (who was also known as Dino Valenti)
Listen to the song I sing
You will understand.
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your own trembling hand.
Just one key unlocks them both
It's there at your command
Come on people now,
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together now
Try to love one another right now.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE
TRY TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER RIGHT NOW
