Verities and Balderdash

26 Sep

I love the title of this Harry Chapin album. Verities and Balderdash pretty much sums up my life. We humans have so many ups and downs. Living with a sense of humor certainly makes it all more interesting and fun.

Speaking of fun. My daughter and I visited a local flea market a few months ago.

And found this!

Ain’t he cute?

Oh, I wanted to take him home! He laid his head on my shoulder and I could feel the love. His owners told me that he followed them around, snuggled up to watch TV. I was enthralled by the little fellow. His little hooves painted and the bow tie had nothing to do with it.

Alas, I had to leave him behind. The 5 critters I harbor might not have understood.

Occasionally my critters irritate the heck outta me. Truly,  they are my best buds. I love their little warm bodies, their kisses and playful nips.

I love  their loyalty and the interaction they have with one another. I love the that they are snuggle bunnies . Even when 60 pound, needy, Molly climbs into my lap, I cherish them. The unconditional love they give is a gift.

I still miss my Chico.

Proud Little Guy

Chico Chi Chihuahua. He loved his frog. And in his honor I have a fairy frog tattooed on my arm. Geez, I’m such a sucker.

M’arm

That is Southern for ‘my arm’.

Today has been a learning experience for sure. I finally figured out how to crop the photos when I got to the frog! Yah me! Slow learner. Work with me please.
