Black and White Sunday: Fall is Approaching

The best vantage point to watch the world from is the front door.

At least that is what the trio thinks.

Black and White Sunday: 3 Dog Weekend

This is a 3 day dog weekend. Tomorrow is Labor Day in the United States. It is a celebration of workers. But I think we are going backward because businesses are open and people are working. How do you celebrate someone with a workman’s holiday if you make them work?

“In the wake of … massive unrest and in an attempt to repair ties with American workers, Congress passed an act making Labor Day a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories. On June 28, 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed it into law. More than a century later, the true founder of Labor Day has yet to be identified.- History.com

Monday Mischief: Cooling Memories

IMG_1065

Memories: On a hot summer day, in 2014, Louise’s boyfriend next door, Mojo, wasn’t home but they went over to swim with his baby sister Zelda instead. It was so much fun. Louise really wanted to play with Zelda’s toy but she would not go in the pool to get it. Louise doesn’t like to get wet (she hates rain too). Sofie, on the other hand, was brave and got all the way in. She loves to swim but has trouble with puppies. That day swimming won over puppy fear.

Black and White Sunday: Which Way Should We Go?

 

The three of them all pointing in different directions made me think about that scene from The Wizard of Oz where Dorothy meets the Scarecrow and doesn’t know which way to go:

Dorothy: Now which way do we go?
Scarecrow: Pardon me. That way is a very nice way…[pointing]
Dorothy: Who said that?
[Toto barks at the Scarecrow]
Dorothy: Don’t be silly, Toto. Scarecrows don’t talk!
Scarecrow: It’s pleasant down that way too!…[pointing in another direction]
Dorothy: That’s funny. Wasn’t he pointing the other way?
Scarecrow: Of course, people do go both ways [pointing in both directions] That’s the trouble. I can’t make up my mind. I haven’t got a brain. Only straw.
Dorothy: How can you talk if you haven’t got a brain?
The Scarecrow: I don’t know. But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking, don’t they?
Dorothy: Yes, I guess you’re right.

Black and White Sunday: Entertain Me!

Charles here: I do not understand why these humans want to just sit and watch the idiot box all evening and not give me tons of treats and play with me all night. I bark and give them hints, but they just don’t get it. I am bored. Entertain me, people!

Black and White Sunday: Doing Curls

Is there anything as sweet as a curled-up cat taking a long afternoon nap?

I want to be Noel.

Monday Mischief: Remembering Falls Past

Squash Fall 2007

Autumn days come quickly, like the running of a hound on the moor.
Irish proverb

Last week it was summer and this week it turned to true fall: welcome The Autumnal Equinox.

Fall was always Squash E Bears perfect time. His winter coat would start to bloom and he really looked like the perfect cuddle bear. Gosh, I miss that dog every day. I do love the current pack but there was something about Squash that even made people stop their cars in the middle of the street and ask about him. It was not really how he looked, though he was a formidable giant ball of fluff, he exuded this gentle energy that could be felt all around.

Fall is my favorite season. I love the colors, the crisp air, the smell of cider, and the pumpkin. I love how the animals start to gather all their hordes of food for winter, scurrying up and down the trees. And the smell of wood fires burning. Fall doesn’t last very long in the Mid-Atlantic anymore, we tend to go from summer heat to winter cold very quickly. So, I breathe in every moment I can get.

Oh my, I think I need to go make an apple pie. What do you love most about fall?

What kind of mischief did you get into today?
