End of December and 2016

It is late December.  The year is almost gone.  The days have grown as short as they can get.  It is time for the sun to head north again.

September 2016

This is the day that the Lord has made.  Let us rejoice and be glad in it.  Sometimes, the sunrise behind the cross just says it all.

It is good to begin the day with affirmations such as this.

A stop over for migrating butterflies

Green grass and milkweed make for a pleasant June and for a haven for the butterflies.  Many don't like the milkweed in their pastureland, but it sure does help the butterflies as the migrate each year.

Milkweed may be the only plant where some butterflies can deposit their eggs and that makes food for the newborn.larva or caterpillars.

Only in Oklahoma--interesting site

All of you Oklahoma Facebookers may want to check out this page and this website.  I only came across them today!

Just a note, now that I'm gone...

I only had to work for a few minutes,
Then I was set for the rest of my life.
Rescued from prison and death,
I would no longer scrounge to survive.

I put my best foot forward,
And tried to look like a family pet.
But I was always wild at heart,
Finding food where others hadn’t scrounged yet.

But I was captured and imprisoned,
My fate was in your hands.
You could have walked on by and said,
This one surely won’t obey our commands.

But you took a chance on me anyway,
You even thought that I was a boy.
Your house became my bathroom,
And what wasn’t tied down, my toy.

That’s just to say there was some adjusting,
To this civilized life and all.
Not that I was complaining, mind you,
But I loved racing down the hall.

I soon learned my boundaries,
And only broke them once in a while.
And who can blame a dog for getting out on trash day,
That’s gotta make you smile.

Sometimes I wondered if you had left me,
When you were gone for days and days.
But I kept the faith and waited,
Hoping you would bring me something from far away.

You’ve never known anyone quite like me.
I jumped four feet straight up.
Then couldn’t find the scrap of meat before me,
I felt like giving up.

The other dogs called me human challenged.
I guess I deserved that tag,  somewhat.
I tried my best to sit on the sofa,
Even though you took my favorite spot.

By dog years I was pushin’ ninety,
I was no spring chicken you see.
But I was always glad to see you,
Even if you were still upset with me.

Yes, I had my share of accidents.
I’m was not a quick study so they say.
But I would still run twenty laps for you,
To start off every day.

Yes, I know that you miss me.
But the cancer had taken its toll.
You know that I was going blind and deaf,
I could barely find my bowl.

So it’s okay that I’m gone now.
I was family for a while.
And for the time I knew you.
I hope I made you smile.

From my perspective, things were good.
I had a home, good food, and no strife.
That’s not bad for an abandoned dog,
I can most surely say, that I had lived the life!
