It All Depends On How You Ask The Question.

It really does depend. Dog owners will understand.

I have three dogs. One is a good sized mixed breed who is getting on in years (13). The other two are small breeds who are about two years old. All of the dogs I’ve had through out my life have always stayed (adequate shelter provided) and enjoyed being outside.

With the addition of the two younger dogs, so began a new experience with small breeds who are not as tough when it comes to outside weather elements. With these two I had to invest in a metal crate so that they could be brought into the house during the cold winter months. They aren’t the best trained dogs, but they do alright.

So this morning I let them out for about an hour. They started running to the door and when I went outside they decided to come in. I put them into their crate and they proceeded to…

I’m out

I’m out. Of money, that is. It’s official. I went to the grocery store today to pick up some essentials and I got the dreaded “Insufficient Funds” screen on the debit machine. Though it’s killing me to do so, I’d like to ask a favour.

If you haven’t already, please buy my book. If you have, or if you have a friend who might like it, please direct them to it. Reblog, share on social media, have a parade down the main street of your town or city, whatever it is you normally do to get attention. If I can get to $100 in royalties, Amazon will pay me next month – they hold smaller amounts.

If you know me, you know I never ask for anything. I hate asking for anything. Please, just share this post. And if you have 99¢ and want to read a really funny book, please click on one of the links below.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Linda

Let me share with you

Do you ever experience something when you’re alone that’s so incredible, you just have to share it with someone else? It happened to me the other day, kind of. I was strolling along the waterfront trail when came across an elderly man who was sitting on a bench facing the water. He turned to me and I smiled and he said to me, “Do you want to see something?”

I said, “Sure,” and walked over to where he was sitting.

He pointed at a heron, standing close by on the rocky shore. “They don’t normally let you get this close,” he said to me. “Isn’t he beautiful?”

I agreed and then I respectfully oohed and aahed; I hadn’t the heart to tell him I’d been even closer to one of the huge, majestic birds just a few days before. When I walked away I felt good that I had been the one to share his wonderful discovery with him.

Here’s the first heron I saw:

Isn’t he beautiful? 😉
