...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,

B G said my pictures were not very exciting this week but "come on" it has been cold and rainy and we don't like rain so we have been napping and watching B G Blog and we wave not motivated much.  So there.

See, we watch him a lot.

and then we nap.

 But Sunday was beautiful.  B G went to the grocery store and then he sat out on the porch and I sat with him.  Todd came out and we all had a good time

No treats yet....but I know I think I will wait.  Maybe later he will give me something.

B G really loves this picture of my hair.  He gets all artsy (fartsy) sometimes.

One of our plants was in in bad shape because of the cold.  But we gave it some more water and I think it is perking up.  B G says he won't throw it away just yet.

Thanks for stopping to see us.   Woof!

"Were I to be the founder of a new sect, I would call them Apiarians, and, after the example of the bee, advise them to extract the honey of every sect."

The moon sets

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
Edith Wharton

As we grow in our consciousness, there will be more compassion and more love, and then the barriers between people, between religions, between nations will begin to fall. Yes, we have to beat down the separateness.
~Ram Dass

"It is only when we are aware of the earth and of the earth as poetry that we truly live."
- Henry Beston

Trust and start walking.
We are not alone in the dark,
Our path will unfold as we move.
~ P. Coelho

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.
—John Ruskin

Night Music ~ Jon Batiste Performing Blackbird - 09 FEB 2016

Found For Friday

A couple of women were playing golf one sunny Saturday morning. The first of the twosome teed off and watched in horror as her ball headed directly toward a pair of men playing the next hole. Indeed, the ball hit one of the men, and he immediately clasped his hands together at his crotch, fell to the ground and proceeded to roll around in evident agony. The woman rushed down to the man and immediately began to apologize.

"Please allow me to help," she said. "I'm a physical therapist and I know I could relieve your pain if you'd allow."

"Er --", the man started to say. "No, I insist," she replied.

"But --" "I insist," she repeated, and despite his objections, she gently moved his hands to the side and loosened his pants. Then she put her hands inside and began to massage him. After a moment she asked him, "How does that feel?" To which he replied, "Well, it feels great, but my thumb still hurts like hell."

No matter how much you push the envelope, it will still be stationary.

Italy has lots of marblelous statues.

Many people take them for granite.

Two podiatrists became arch rivals.

Sir Cumference built King Arthur's round table and Sir Ramic Tile did the flooring.

I think I'm going to hire the same landscaper I used last year - he was really easy to get a lawn with.

In the year I worked at a mannequin factory

I only made half a dozen mannequins.

Still, I was the first in my family to make 6 figures.

The marine biology student took a math course called algae-bra.

A young nun who was tasked with doing the laundry noticed that the sisters' robes were becoming rather gray and faded after years of use. Rather than spend money on new fabric, the Mother Superior authorized the purchase of black dye to fix the robes. The young nun tried and tried to restore the garments to their original color, but it didn't work because, as everyone knows, old habits dye hard.

I used to work as a cheese monger, but I camembert it any longer!

We have a chair that needs to be reupholstered. Our state tax return came in, and I suggested we use the money to fix the chair.

Kim said it wouldn't be enough to cover it.
