Finally. We are having wonderful Autumn weather. Cool and crisp mornings and warm and sunny afternoons. Lucy does thrive in this weather. She forgets that she is eleven now and she still runs like a puppy, then sinks to rest.
She even curls up like a puppy, head between her paws.
But she is on her feet when I open the pill bottles.
Always ready for a pill sammich.
I will be taking a blogging break for at least two weeks. Our daughter is coming for a visit and we will be hitting the mountain roads.
We don't subscribe to THE NEW YORKER, but here is their clever cover. Like a determined terrier, a certain politician simply cannot let go, even when it's in his best interest to do so. I understand he was up in the wee hours this morning still tweeting away. So this cover is appropriate. In case you cannot read the sash, it's "Miss Congeniality."
I get rather depressed sometimes thinking about all the problems we have in this time. The damage we inflict on our mother earth, the damage we inflict on our fellow humans across the globe. And I feel overwhelmed with a desire to do something.
In those times, I remember the words of Edward Everett Hale. I may have shared them before but they are especially appropriate now.
I am only one,
But still I am one.
I cannot do everything,
But still I can do something;
And because I cannot do everything,
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, EVERYONE
DO THE SOMETHING YOU CAN DO
