Christmas 2

A charming vignette with echoes of simpler times.

In the chaos and horror of today’s world, it would be easy to assume that life was easier in “the good old days”.

A study of history teaches us otherwise.  Life has never been idyllic for many people at all time.

A Mystery

Maybe you can explain this to me.

I rise early to take my dog Ginny for walks before the temperatures rise.

I have a floor fan that she sleeps in front of most of the day and evening.

So, why when we are outside does she lie in the sun rather than the shade?

After all, she’s the one with the fur coat!

Lunch on the patio.  Lots of shade!
