Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 12th day of February, 2018.

Happy Birthday to one of my co-workers who celebrates today.

Another cold morning but warming up for a few days.

 

We had a great day yesterday.

Alvin and I hosted a belated Birthday party for one of our friends.

Two adults (Moms) and three children attended.

We had a great visit and the chocolate birthday cake was a hit.

We had a bit of time in between our next set of company.

My friend’s sister and our little four legged buddy “Teddy” came for an afternoon visit.

We really liked J, she is such a nice person.

Great conversation.

I do look forward to their next visit, as does Mr. Alvin.

They are coming over on Wednesday evening for a short visit and then for supper on Sunday.

I think they get lonely in such a big house.

 

Well I cannot believe that it is Monday already, where did the weekend go?

I guess we were so busy that the time just got away from us.

I wish you all a wonderful Monday.

Dress warm, stay safe and be kind.

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 19th day of June, 2016.

The sky is a mix of clouds and sunshine.

Today marks “Father’s Day” here in Canada and the United States.

Happy Father’s Day to all those Dad everywhere.

Thank you for watching over your families and for being supportive.

Thank you for everything you do …. from tying shoe laces to reading bedtime stories to teaching us to drive a motor vehicle.

 

I was just thinking a few minutes ago about Alvin and that he will never have his own family.

We took that from him.

Our hearts and minds were in the right place or that is what we think.

I will admit that I never thought of things from that perspective.

Most dogs when they mate do not stay together anyway because of us.

I know most times there is  legitimate reasoning behind why they do not mate and have the babies together.

But it is sad.

Most animals in the wild stay together.

The male watches over the female and the young ones.

Hunting and protecting.

Just makes me sad that he will never have his own little boy to play with ….

Perhaps that is why most dogs treat the young ones differently than the ones there age or older.

Well food for thought.

 

Wishing every male on the planet a “Happy Father’s Day” whether you have procreated or not.

I am certain that most males at one point during their lifetime have been protective or helped a young one.

So on that basis I wish you all a Happy Father’s Day.

After all, we should be thinking about this earth as a community, and should be helping each other and every inhabitant, every living creature along the way.

We share this place.

We share this place together.

 

Well time to go and start making pancakes as my daughter is coming for a visit.

I think it is a good time to make pancakes for her visit.

 

Have a great day everyone ….

 

Special Hello to: ¬†all the Dad’s out there … wherever you may be.

Always, Carol and Alvin
