Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 12th day of August, 2014.

The sun is starting to rise as the morning sky is filled with delicious shades of yellow, pink and orange.

The moon last night was so big that it made me think we had changed orbit and were close to another planet.

So big and bold.

So big and beautiful.

I felt as though I could reach out and touch it.

It was so close.

That moon of ours ….. just wanted to snuggle for a bit.

How sweet.

 

Last night when we stopped off at the grocery store.

My daughter and I noticed a beautiful big dog tied to a concrete garbage bin.

It was doing the dance when the ground is too hot.

It was in the 30’s yesterday with the humidity.

Anyway, a young man who worked at the nearby liquor store was with him …. trying to get him to lay down on some shirts he had retrieved from the store.

A woman offered a water bottle and drained it on the hot cement.

I was so impressed by everyone’s generosity and so mad at the owner …. who could leave a poor dog out in the hot sun.

Another staff from the liquor store brought a big bowl of water out for the dog.

The young man would not leave the dog’s side and said he would stay until the owner showed up.

Such a kind and gentle dog.  Big and red.

He had with him for about 15 minutes at that point.

We had gone into the store and when I was done came out.

Still there.

The young man asked me to make an announcement in the store, so I ran back to have them do so.

Still no owner.

When my daughter was done … still no owner.

When we left the store ….. the dog was in good hands …… thank goodness for the kindness of strangers.

I was so impressed to see that people still cared.

I think that people simply do not think …… not that people do not care ….. like the owner.

Just was not thinking or at least that is my hope.

The young man was going to “chew him out.”

Anyway time to go.

Well time is passing by quickly.

Time to go and check in on Miss Aussie.

I opened the window for her after work and closed it at bedtime.

I know that she loves sitting in the window.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to: all those great people who stop to help ….

Always, Carol and Alvin
