Time is still a-flying. Next week is September. Our weather has turned hot and humid once again, and darkness falls far too early in the evenings while the sun sleeps in later every morning now. And that will get far worse before it turns around.
Wouldn't it be nice if we just totally suspended all the Presidential campaign rhetoric? Given the two major party candidates, breathes there a soul who is going to change his/her mind at this point? Or doesn't know already he/she will choose a third-party candidate instead? Or simply choose not to vote? I cannot think of a single thing that would change my mind at this point. I'd rather see a bit more attention given to the candidates "down ticket" and much less to the Presidential candidates.
Living a dog's life may be easier. Our Lucy cares not a whit about elections or anything outside her insulated little world. She does worry a little bit about dinner. If my husband so much as moves in his chair anytime between 4:15 and 4:30, Lucy is on her feet just in case he has forgotten that dinnertime is 4:30. This in spite of the fact that no one has ever forgotten her dinner. Not once.
Lucy, up close and personal
We have two quotes for today. Both of them on the lighter side.
The first is from the late Terry Pratchett. Actually that is SIR Terry Pratchett, genius extraordinaire:
The trouble with having an open mind, of course,
is that people will insist on coming along
and trying to put things in it.
The second is from old reliable, Mark Twain:
It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble.
It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE
THEN HAVE SOME FUN
