...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

Night Music ~ Mandy Patinkin Sings You've Got to be Carefully Taught; Children Will Listen Medley

Happy Halloween!

Molly and Todd on Monday

 Molly here,

It has been another great week.  BG has been able to have the porch open and it is nice to be outside.

Here we are waiting for BG to let us out.




It nice to be able to patrol our yard and also we like to see the leaves which are nice now and actually BG said it is fun for us to have us hide in the leaves because they have turned to look like us.


 These pictures show us hiding in the leaves.













We were watching BG take pictures of all of us.

We like being out.


 Tara came to see us the other day.

Todd  came out and took treats from her.


Then BG took  pictures of her.






A little nap after our photo shoot.

Then BG did a sneaking photo of us sleeping.

BG loves it when he catches us sleeping.

 Some of the trees have lost all of their leaves.  This is our kitchen window now.


Thanks for stopping to see us.  See you next week.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
—Buddha

― E.B. White


You are not a drop in the ocean.
You are the entire ocean in a drop.

Be the flower that gives its fragrance even to the hand that crushes it.

God changes his appearance every second. Blessed is the man who can recognize him in all his disguises.

You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.

The last group of fall images.... Photos by Bob Kelly


This may be the last fall grouping of photos for this year, as I think I have covered about as much as I am able. There will soon be some winter shots (no big rush for that!), and other images will present themselves to me and of course I will shoot them. So for now here is this last group of 18 images, with no caption on them, for they visually speak for themselves, as they display a collection of themes we associate with this beautiful time of the year.
