Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 16th day of July, 2014.

Last night the skies were dull with the smoke from forest fires to the north, west, and east and yes, to the south.

So I guess one could say we are surrounded.

This morning still overcast ….. smoky skies, I think.

Just doing some thinking ….. for a change!!

Just kidding.



What makes a good blog?

What makes a good Mom?  a good friend?

What makes a good employee?

What makes a good dessert?

What makes a good surprise?

What makes a good walk?


Is there something common here?

A similar thread that weaves it’s way throughout each of these?

Well perhaps there is.

Think about it.

I shall think with you.

The answer, my answer:

” good is merely an opinion, a state of mind”

As we all know it depends on who answers the question.


Special Hello: tinkers ….. people who create…..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Thursday morning.

Alvin was especially playful this morning.

He picked up his “synthetic” bone and was dropping it onto the floor (laminate) …. bang, bang, bang.

He also picked up another of his toys ….. a rubber one and wanted me to throw it (so I did).

Are you seeing a pattern here?

Yes.  His toys are all made of indestructible materials.  LOL

Or perhaps the fact that we were playing (at 5:30 a.m.).

Alvin does not seem to pay much attention to the time.

Reason for indestructible materials:

He loved to chew when he was a puppy (which in some ways he still is) …

So his dinosaur, frog, and others ended up in a bag in the basement or in the trash as he chewed threw the threads that bound the materials together.

I guess my thought for this day is …… PLAY …. have FUN.

If the thread comes undone …… so what….

I love my Alvin and he always brings a smile to my face and joy to my heart.

Take some time on this Thursday to have fun…. joy and laughter are the best medicine.

Have a great day.


Always, Carol
