...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732

Molly and Todd on Monday

 Molly here,

Not much happening right now.

BG was going to make a new cover photo for Facebook but it would not work.   So I told him to post it here.

Here is the uncropped photo.

So while we napped BG found a poem which he had written and he is using this photo and here it is.

Nature’s Public Art
You’ve rushed to put on your new dress.
( Are you planning to wear it to the Harvest Ball?)

Some of your neighbors have begun to try on their jewels.
But you stand there – resplendent – alone – in autumnal glory!

Others cling to their summer frocks but, trend setter that you are, you couldn’t wait to show off your newest gown.

Some seeing your splendor, and knowing that they cannot compete, have disrobed and retired to their winter beds.

Soon the rest will put on their colorful Ball finery – but none can match your beautiful display.

BG wrote this a long time ago. He read it to us so we could share it with us.

Then we had a conversation

Then BG caught us kissing....

And there wasn't much else happening.. 

So we waited around and then we quit.  It was a good morning!

Have a good week!   Woof.
