...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


Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

Toad Tuesday









This is an ad  but I like it and but it is cute..


I was fortunate to capture the sunset Monday evening.  So I shared them.  If I had Photoshop I could get rid of the lines but they are there so they are still worth showing.

Molly and Sadie on Monday

 Molly here,

B G had to go to the store to get food for us.  We use good food and they are really nice people who work there.  B G was talking to them and found these beds for us.  He got them so we won't have to sleep on blankets.  (But I still like my couch best)  - Here are some pictures of us looking over the beds.




 Then Sadie had her look them over.  They are two sizes.  Big for me and smaller for Sadie.


 B G. also cleaned his office this week and he also worked on the bookshelf in the living room. It looks nice.  I will have to tell him to take pictures of the office also.





I also worked on unstuffing the toy.  B G will have to get me another one soon.  I am almost done with this one.
 Then we lay down on our new beds.

This is our close-up for Mr. DeMille.

 Then we switched places and Sadie took over the big bed and I had to use the smaller one.


 But that is O K I like both of them.

This is a picture of my blogfriend...Harper.  She lives in Arizona and her human takes her to the Dog park.  I would like to go to the Dog Park but they live too far away.  Isn't she pretty.  Her humans also blog.  Harper's Valley and Spo-Reflections.


Jon also shared some pictures on Facebook when he was here.  They are nice.  B G likes them.



Thanks for stopping by!  Woof!

"History has shown us time and time again that you don't have to know someone to love them with all your heart."
~ Shannon L. Alder


"Nature does not deceive or conceal, but reveals."
~ Carl Jung


The words of some men are thrown forcibly against you and adhere like burrs. -Henry David Thoreau, naturalist and author (1817-1862)


“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is 
translated through you into action, and because there is only one of
you in all time, this expression is unique. And, if you block it, it 
will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”
~ Martha Graham


“You need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and 
listen. You need not even listen, simply wait. You need not even 
wait,just learn to become quiet, and still, and solitary. 
The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked. It has no
choice; it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”
~ Franz Kafka


Step out of the circle of time and into the circle of love.
-Rumi


Realization is simply to give birth to something within oneself.
- Anonymous


It is difficult to find happiness in oneself but it is impossible to find it anywhere else.
- Schopenhauer


Metaphysician: A man who goes into a dark cellar at midnight without a light looking for a black cat that is not there.
- Bowen of Colwood


We have not come here to take prisoners but to surrender ever more deeply to freedom and joy.
- Hafiz


Know that what appears to be Love for an ‘other’ is really Love of Self because ‘other’ doesn’t exist. So this innermost Love can be given to no ‘other’. Love of friends is for the sake of Self, not for body to body. True love has no Lover or Beloved because all Love is Love of Self.
- Sri Poonja
