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.

1.31.13 Thankful Thursday: I Got REALITY!

I am so thankful to receive a new award that I never saw before from Oz The Terrier.  It is called the REALITY Award.  Each letter of the award  stands for some really cool word.


Oz, whose real name is Oscar, lives in Florida.  He looks a lot like that dog Toto from the Wizard of Oz movie, which is no accident, since it is his Mom’s favorite movie of all time.  He is a breed called a Cairn Terrier.  His favorite food is bacon, so who would not love him!  Thank you Toto Oscar Oz!

Oz in the grass Here are the rules for this award:

1) Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you – done!

2) Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and link back to them – done!

3) Answer 5 simple questions (well, I wouldn’t call them simple, but here goes…)

A) If you could change one thing, what would you change?
Louise (aka Lulu Belle):  I would change the fact that Mommy can’t walk us now because her knees don’t work.  I miss our walks really really really bad and am not happy about it.

Sofie Bear: Hummm, change?  I would change having to go to sleep in my kennel at night.  I would rather sleep right outside it: so what if I wonder and chase cats in the middle of the night.

Noel, the Christmas Cat:  I would be the only animal in Mommy’s life.  

Nine, the ManCat:  I would be a dog.  

Baby Stella:  I would raise Mommy’s bed an inch or two, so that it is easier to hide under.

B) If you could repeat an age, what would it be? Any year?
Well, we are a pretty young bunch, but I guess being a puppy or kitten at like 20 weeks was fun. (Noel 6-1/2, Louise 3, Sofie 2, Nine 2, Stella 1-1/2)

C) What is one thing that really scares you?
Louise:  Pretty much everything scares me, but especially strangers.

Sofie:  When Mommy gets mad and uses that BIG voice.  

Noel:  People  

Nine: Nothing (well maybe Louise sometimes when she growls at me).  

Stella: When anything or anyone moves.

D) What is one dream you have not completed and do you think you will be able to accomplish it?
Mommy:  I always wanted to raise a hybrid breed of dog that would be a watcher and caretaker for children.  I don’t think I will get to it this time around though.

E) If you could be someone else for one day, who would it be?
Louise:  Balto (brave and fearless)

Sofie:  A golden retriever

Noel:  I only would be me, since there is no cat better in the world.

Nine:  Houdini

Stella:  Audrey Hepburn

4) Display the award on your blog somewhere – done!

5) Nominate up to 20 blogs for the award and notify them
