Do You Suffer from Lid Temple Syndrome?

LOVE this from Kyle Cease!

"It's so soft . . . and less liddy."

"It's easier done, than said."  That would make a good bumper sticker / T-shirt / coffee mug!   

I think he could do a follow-up mockumentary, possibly with JP Sears.  "Do you suffer from Lid Temple Syndrome?" with a shot of people in ordinary life with lids on their heads. 

"Symptoms of LTS include: limiting beliefs, self-doubt, low self-esteem, fatigue, binge-watching shows you don't even like."

Kyle:  "I have a dream that one day, people will walk around without lids on their temples."   

And then some naysayer in a white coat saying, "This needs PEER-REVIEWED research before you irresponsibly tell people they can perform a lid-ectomy without a B.C.L.T.S.  (Board Certified Lid Temple Specialist).  

"Ask your doctor . . . ."  

In the meantime, I did a Rumi graphic:

Just because most people have lid temple doesn't make it normal. It just makes it common.  Of course, that's just crazy talk, because there's no such thing as Lid Temple. 

Or is there?

A Literal Squirrel Moment!

What's this?

I heard beagle girl Baby Ah-ROO-ing a "This is mine!" in the backyard. I looked out to see a squirrel on the ground in between Buddy & Baby. So I managed to ninja-maneuver-scoop it up with my jacket.

Here's a video:

HAPPY Birthday from Magnolia May

Today is John Morgan's birthday.  Loyal readers of this blog know all about him!  Over the course of almost 11 years, I have peppered in stories of our conversations. He is one of the funniest people I know, with a dry sense of humoUr and quick wit. It is because of him that Magnolia May was born, when we were on the phone and I got a delivery from a planner company.  

"I can NOT listen to you BLATHER ON about another planner . . . UNLESS YOU DO IT WITH AN ACCENT!"  And so I went thru the unboxing with him, ooh-ing and ah-ing with a few Southernisms thrown in. In honoUr of today, here's the first video of MM:

And as John says, ALL THE BEST!!!  :-)

Baby Pix

She came to me with the name Brandine; Brandy for short. I've called her Baby, short for Baby Goat Antelope, Adorable Darling Sweetheart Beagle Girl Brandy.  See? Shorter to call her Baby. And she is. When she's not anteloping around the house, she's snuggled up.

Under my desk with and assortment of toys, including a paper plate from the recycling.

Reggie didn't usually go on the Meditation Chair, but here he is with Baby:


After a bag of dog food is finished, I let the dogs play with the bag:

With Buddy outside:

Winston Churchill.

My favourite pix are of her and Buddy curled up on the Meditation Chair:
Buddy on left, Baby on right.

Look at Buddy's little tongue sticking out.  Awww . . . .


With Tabby Bobcat:

And in the bedroom:
Zzzzzz . . . .
