A little departure from our regularly scheduled Lenten topical prayers, thoughts and poems to think about dogs and how great they are. Happy Tuesday Friends and Visitors! I am glad you stopped by for a look.
Whether I’ve been halfway around the world or just out to the mailbox, Jenny’s greeting upon my return is equally enthusiastic. I hear her prepare for my arrival as I walk across the garage. First, there’s the gentle thud as she leaps off the couch in the family room above me, then the clicking of toenails as she races across the tiles on the kitchen floor, and finally the thawp-thawping of her sturdy tail against the walls in our tiny mudroom. By the time I open the back door, Jenny’s tail is moving so fast and furiously, her entire body is wiggling and waggling. She leans into me, nearly taking me out at the knees as she does so, as though she just can’t get close enough. She looks up at me, golden eyes shining with pure joy. It’s always a perfect homecoming. - Christine Otto Hirshland

Good Morning Digital Neighbors & Frozen Friends! 7 Fahrenheit here in wintery New Melle. Nothing too long this morning, when it is this cold outside the house drops down into the low 60's and sometimes mid 50's if it lasts too long.

Most I know are far worse than this one. Enjoy! Happy Thursday Friends!
Bill's snowman was missing a snout
For carrots in shops had run out.
A sausage sufficed
But as it de-iced
Its purpose was cast into doubt!

Dues to changes @LOCALS this community is no longer a free community if you want to participate.
