Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Outwitted


Hubby and I are getting suspicious. It's about the dog. We think it just may be possible that she is smarter than she's letting on. And there's an outside chance that she's smarter than both of us...combined.  We fear we're being manipulated by a mastermind. Case in point...when we've thrown the ball for her over 100 times and have decided enough's enough...she pokes the ball under Hubby's chair...then pleads with him to get it out for her. He always caves and retrieves the ball, then gives it a toss in her direction...and Voila, there you have it...she's duped him into throwing it one more time. It's getting spooky. Now I'm wondering about that missing $20 bill from my dresser. Could she...Would she? Hmmm, maybe I'd better check her wallet.

ah yes, she sounds like a tricky one...I'd check her pawrse and see if the $20 is there!

Jojo, I did just as you said...Her pawrse had $20, some treats, a couple of poker chips and a photo of some dogs playing poker. Oh dear, I hope she's not addicted to gambling...She claims to have 'borrowed' the money for a pedicure.

Oh! Very silly puppy. We have an enormous 7 month old puppy who is a one man wrecking ball with his toys. They sure have quite the personalities. I sure hope your little lady got a nice pedicure with that twenty...
