Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 15th day of September, 2015.

We are at the halfway point for the month.

It has been kind of a rainy month ….

In fact, it is raining outside as we speak.

It feels like a “Rainy Night in Georgia” …..

Definitely going to be an umbrella day.

I made my lunch so that it will fit in my purse ….. cross body one.

So makes it easier to carry the umbrella ….

Try to think ahead ….

Somedays it works …. ha ha ha ….. that is supposed to be laughing.

The LOL …. seems strange ….

Okay maybe on this Tuesday morning I am feeling a bit tired ….. I guess that rain likely kept me up.

Doesn’t usually but this time it did.

I know I was dreaming but do not remember anything.

Mr. Alvin and RAIN …. not a good mix.

The poor little guy really needed some encouragement to go outside this morning.

I have to try again (for the fourth time) as he was not outside long enough to poop.

Is that too much information?

Oh well, just the truth of the matter.

I do feel bad.

When I first adopted him and for a long time after ….. snowing, blowing, raining or dry I always went out with him.

Carrying an umbrella for us both if necessary ( I have a really big one ).

Now these years later …. his Momma stands in the doorway … sometimes the door is closed .. sometimes not.

This morning perhaps I should grab the umbrella and go out with him.

That being the case … better get going so that I have time to grab my things before leaving to catch the bus.

Thank goodness it is not windy …. so I can carry an umbrella for my walk to the bus.

Long enough to get wet ….

I hope that you have a happy Tuesday.

Surround yourself with love, respect and kindness.

The REST will follow.

Always DREAM …. might as well dream BIG.

Walk toward it …. try something new….. you have to work at it ….

Have a great day.

Special Hello to: my sister “C” ….. hi darling ….. how about SKYPE this weekend?

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and welcome to Thursday, January 12th, 2012.

How are you this morning?

I am great ….. (Alvin decided to wake me up at 4:10 this morning to go outside to pee).

So definitely more wide awake now at 6:20 a.m.

I just received a phone call from my daughter …. it was a call that I believe to be unique ….

It definitely was a call that I never thought about receiving in a million years.

She might call me to say that they are going to be a bit late or perhaps to bring a piece of jewelry or something.

But this was an odd request and even more odd was the reason why.

You see my dog Alvin (her little brother) has this thing ….. he likes to get his teeth wrapped around these ….

He has damaged beyond use ….. some of mine …..

Amanda had told me that he had done the same to some of hers….

Can you guess what she requested to borrow this morning?

Well here it is….

A PAIR OF SOCKS.

It would seem that her brother while visiting has put holes in most of her socks.

So while you are holding your tummy’s rolling around the floor laughing …. I am just smiling.

Alvin has this thing for socks.

He will attempt when given the slightest of opportunities to pull socks out of the laundry basket.

You see mine is one of the tall ones that has “holes” in it (I guess to keep the dirty laundry smell permeating your closet) LOL ….

It is cute to watch him but unfortunately the socks do not last long in the grip of his long canine teeth ….

So I grabbed some “unholy” socks for Amanda to borrow…… she will buy some new ones today.

Have a great day everyone …… always good to have a giggle before starting your work day or any day ….

Special Hello:  to Amanda, my daughter who has patience and a great sense of humour.

Always, Carol
