Misc

I’ve taken some of my images and played today. Included in this collage is my granddaughter sipping on some Hawaiian ice in Honolulu, a flower from my garden in memory of those killed in the 9-11 attacks, an old Chevy truck on Alcatraz in San Franciso, our dog Foxy, who went to the Rainbow Bridge in 2013, and Daisy sniffing my tulip arrangement. 

Say a prayer today for the loved ones of the 9-11 victims, whose lives were inflicted with unfathomable pain. Hug every member of your family and remind them how much you love them. 

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

 

Drac and Daisy

I’ve heard that a tsunami of love is enveloping our beautiful blue planet and all of its inhabitants. What does that mean exactly?

I’m not sure what it means for humans, although I’ve felt a greater peace about things recently than in the past.

So if this tsunami is true, then it explains the unlikely friendship that has developed between our dog, Daisy, and a neighbor’s cat. His name is Drac. (Could that be short for Dracula)? I’ve been meaning to ask his owner about that name.

Drac walks around the neighborhood like he owns it. I think he does.

When another of our neighbors, who isn’t really a cat person, walks to the mailbox, Drac sees her coming and gets in step with her all the way to the mailbox and back. She calls him her escort. So cute!

Drac loves Daisy and the feeling is mutual. They sniff each other, he nuzzles her, and then he follows us on our daily walk. It’s amazing to me how well they get along … I guess they’ve been hit by the tsunami. Animals know good energy when they’re around it. They know if the humans they encounter have good energy or not. Drac and Daisy get it … I’m taking my cues from them.

A Good Laugh

When I came across this image today on my Instagram feed, I couldn’t stop laughing, so of course I posted it on FB. Don’t we all need a good laugh these days? Of course some will say I’m being irreverent, but how can I be irreverent of a myth? But just in case, don’t show this to your kids who still believe. LOL …

And if the image above didn’t make you smile, I dare you to NOT smile when you see this …

Black and White Challenge – Day 2

Busy day today but feeling like I need to continue this challenge. Something I enjoy to the max. So here I am with the clock striking midnight in a few minutes with today’s contribution. I made it just under the wire 🙂

This is Jazz. My sis-in-law (the sister I’m not related to by birth but is just as important to me) is a dog sitter and takes care of this precious pooch from time to time.  He belongs to the daughter of the late, great Miles Davis, hence the name Jazz. He’s just as adorable in person as he is in this photo, which I shot several years ago. Namaste’

Have You Seen My Ball?

Since it’s Throwback Thursday I thought I’d post this picture of Daisy (taken last year) with her favorite orange ball.  It moved with us all the way to Oregon and now it’s missing. And believe me, we’ve looked in every nook and cranny inside and outside. She has plenty of other balls and toys, but none that she loves so much as this one. So let’s all call up the canine angels and put out an APB on her favorite ball.  Thanks in advance 🙂 Namaste’

Meet Gunner

It’s no secret that I’m a dog lover.  I’ve been meaning to post this photo I took when we visited hubby’s sister in Nevada.  She and I went to the dog park in Henderson with Daisy, of course.  And there I met Gunner; an incredibly sweet Golden Retriever.  He had just rolled in the dry grass and was feeling pretty content with himself.  And what Golden Retriever doesn’t love their ball?  I think he is so cute!

Gunner reminds me so much of our Goldie, who went to the Rainbow Bridge several years ago.  She was a Golden-Duck Toller Retriever mix and such a sweetheart.  We rescued her from the Golden Rescue in Phoenix.  She didn’t trust humans very much when we first got her, but with love and patience, we managed to sneak into her heart when she wasn’t looking.  She loved to swim, so our pool became her pool and the rest is history.

Goldie Girl, wherever you are … meet Gunner.  You could be twins 🙂  Namaste’
