We understand death for the first time when he puts his hand upon one whom we love. ~Germaine de Stael, French-Swiss author
Dallas here, coming at you from the Rainbow Bridge. On what would have been my 14th earth birthday.
When prayers go up, blessings come down. ~Author unknown
Those who know me well know how hard it’s been for me since my beloved Sheltie Dallas left for the Rainbow Bridge back in March.
Life is change. ~Heraclitus of Ephesus, Greek philosopher
My son Domer was home last week (the first time we’ve gotten together since Christmas!)
My friend Katybeth nudged me some time ago that Halloween was on its way and I should get Dallas all gussied up and ready to join in the spirit of the occasion.
So here is our semblance of a Halloween card:
Go ahead and laugh (Domer did, when he saw it).
‘It looks like you’ve Photoshopped my dog onto a beach.’
Well, yes. Yes, it does.
Worse, it looks like poor Dallas has no backside!
(Probably sank in all that sand.)
Once you’ve had your laugh, hop on over to Katybeth’s blog and see how the pros do it. I can’t figure it out and spent way more time than is seemly just trying!
Maybe if we leave you with some surfing music you won’t hate us too much — Happy Halloween, everyone!
P.S. I’m not doing NaNoWriMo (the write-your-novel-in-a-month challenge), but I *do* have to crank it up a notch on book two of my series, and this is as good a time as any. Before the holiday festivities, you know. So I won’t be around much for the next couple of weeks. Enjoy your Fall, and we’ll chat soon!
Mama said I had to wait until The Kid (AKA Domer) came home before we could hold my annual Easter Egg Hunt.
That was probably a good idea since Easter Sunday wasn’t the prettiest of days, as I recall.
What else is new? Well, we’ve had days on end of rain, making it a challenge to be a long-haired dog needing to use the outdoor facilities!
And the streets in our neighborhood have been under water, so all the peoples are staying put indoors. Including Mama, who’s supposed to be working on that novel-thing.
