SHE'S STAYING

Frankie wonders where she is going.

Frankie wonders just where she is.
Slim and Frankie romp in the field.  Looks like Slim approves of her new little sister. #blackmouthcur

THE BREAK IN

Words for Wednesday provided again by Elephant's Child: exhibition, feelings,bewitching, captive, gushing and candle plus the  expression "The fog comes in on little cat feet..." from a poem by Carl Sandburg

A story this time instead of a poem.  We were even give a picture to use this time.

painted by Alfred Stevens (1823-1906).


THE BREAK IN by Granny Annie

Though she had been banned from the exhibition for continuing to touch the displays, she crept into the great hall like "the fog comes in on  little cat feet".    There was no way to let go of her feelings that made her keep going inside..   She was fearful and could feel her heart pounding. It was bewitching to watch her move with stealth across the room as if a captive making an escape.

Suddenly the sculpture of the cat caught her eye and she was gushing and reaching out to faintly brush the texture.  It surprised her as she accidentally brushed against the candle nearby causing it to go crashing to the floor.

Security alerted by the crash rushed into the room and forcefully guided this elegant, young, accident prone lady out the door, reminding her she was not welcome there.

LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL

Do you believe in life after death?

I have confidence in a "peace that passes all understanding".

No, I don't believe in life after death. Time will tell whether I am right or wrong.

Most definitely. I believe in Heaven and Hell. I'm a bit old school I'm afraid.

I used to. If there is a hell I am pretty sure I am going there so I hope there isn't.

Maybe not life as we know it, and maybe there's nothing at all.
50 years from now, I'll let you know, if I'm able.

Nope. I believe in the memories that remain after a loved one has passed. The memories keep them alive in our heart and mind.

SUNDAY SELECTIONS OF HOPE

I always love Elephant Child's Sunday Selections and since I had such a great week with my youngest grandchild (age 14) I too have a fun week to share.

Hope goes with me to meet a puppy that will come home with me in a few days.  Hope is calling this 5 month old Black Mouth Cur Frankie. If Slim likes the Frankie then the pup  will stay.  If not, Frankie will need another new home.  Of course Hope thinks that should be with her but I'm afraid her parent's don't agree.
Hope contemplates my sister's swimming pool.

Of course Hope decides to swim with my sister's dog Gracie Mae.
We visited a local antique store and I am lusting for this set of dishes that only cost $225 for 42 pieces of Pfaltzgraff dinnerware.  One problem...I don't have $225!
We got a few items from the local Farmer's Market and also a nearby Poultry 'Swap Meet.  Lynn you would love the Kale Chips!
Of course I have to share my favorite funny of the week.  It could be me and my sister.  LOL
