    Well it's sure good that someone knew the score in that case!!!

    Haha...I mentioned once before here, but this brings back memories of how some folks misunderstand dogs. Like the old dude who called out to me from his condo suite "pick it up" when he saw my dog take a pee just outside the property. I was never trained how to pick up pee before....




    I mean, say what????

    At this ripe age, I am still very much in awe of space travel. I can not fathom how you can build a craft to travel hundreds of millions of miles, and land it perfectly... onto Mars in this case. Congratz NASA!!

    And well done "Percy"! As the saying goes...a little Perseverance goes a long way.

    So true. Many people think it's a waste of time to learn from their mistakes or witnessing another persons mistake and ignoring what could happen.

    We had a strict father, military officer, rigid but fair. I learned to pay attention early on in life when my older brother got into trouble creating a firm spanking situation, I rarely repeated my brothers mistakes. I believe "Live and learn" should have been the tenth commandment.
    Yes....so many of us live, but not enough of us learn.

    Such a positive....not having to open up negatives.

    I've said this before, but this place seems so much more civil since the negs are gone. Discussions carry on. People differ as they should. Opinions will not always be the same, and that's a good thing if you want honesty and transparency. In fact, disagreement can lead to new friendships. And the odd time we may need to step in gently and see if we can lighten the tone. But among most groups, it's not too hard, if we are respectful and keep things cool.

Is "he" the default for most smaller dogs? Don't they know that she has feelings, and how stupid she must think they are?

    You know who had a great day yesterday.....

    Amanda Gorman, the young poet whose crafted words were heard round the world. If we as individuals had stock values, hers went off the charts in mere minutes. She is amazing!

    I feel a good vibe. Good finally wins out over evil, coming to a theatre near you.
