There is no night without a dawning
No winter without a spring
And beyond the dark horizon
Our hearts will once more sing…
For those who leave us for a while
Have only gone away
Out of a restless, care worn world
Into a brighter day.~ Helen Steiner Rice, American writer, inspirational and Christian poetry
Dallas, September 2016
This would have been Dallas’s 16th birthday (2006-2020). Rest well, my Sheltie angel!
He that waits upon Fortune, is never sure of a Dinner. ~Benjamin Franklin, American statesman, inventor, writer, etc.
I Monkey here. Before Fall turns into Winter, I want to take you on a squirrel hunt.
What? You’ve never been on a squirrel hunt?
People, that’s crazy! Come with me, and I’ll show you what you’ve been missing!
Suited up and ready to go!
Hold a true friend with both your hands. ~Nigerian proverb
For longer than I care to admit, I’ve been battling technical issues with my WordPress blog.
Every time I wanted to comment on someone’s post, or even reply to comments made on my posts, I was forced to log in.
Every. Single. Time.
This was despite my having asked WordPress to remember me. And despite already being logged in.
And when I keyed in my username and password, I’d be taken to a page with a random photo and a link to the blog I was visiting, forcing me to pull the site up again just to see if my comment had registered.
The whole thing was becoming so complicated — and time-consuming — that I questioned whether I wanted to keep blogging. Or just chuck it all.
To the sky
So I can reach
Something good to eat.
This green thing looks okay.
It’s not what I’d like, but it
Will have to do because I am
So very hungry and I don’t see
Anything else the lady has put out.
It’s raining and I have to wonder why
This lady has a camera on me.
Doesn’t she have anything else
To do with her time than click
At me when I’m hiding
Here beneath this bush,
Trying to stay
Oh so dry
