FURRY FRIDAY: Man’s Best Friend, Part Three

Furry men and their furry friends has been a popular feature here at Furry Friday, and I have a ton of wonderful pictures. It gave me some good excuses to do yet another “Man’s Best Friend.” And I still have a tone of pictures I haven’t used. It was really difficult to whittle them down to ten pictures + three weeks = 30 pictures.

Let me know if you want to see more! But it won’t be next week! I have something very special planned! But for that, you’ll just have to wait to see!

HUGS and WOOF!

Re-Blog: Bits and Pieces. Dribbles and Drabbles. Of Health—And Husbands—And a HUGE Need for Advice!

March 27th, 2019, I posted the following to Dani Elle Maas’s lovely blog, Love Bytes. After a week, I thought I would re-post it right here. However, I highly recommend her blog, and you can find it by clicking RIGHT HERE!

Until then…here it is!

Bits and Pieces. Dribbles and Drabbles. Of Health—And Husbands—And a HUGE Need for Advice!

Hello Readers! I’m back. And apologies to all, especially Dani for my absence.

Life in the last six months has been…interesting to say the least. Good, bad, and … life. So, I thought I’d share a bit of it…and then I need to ask you for some advice.

In December I had a heart attack. Luckily my husbands got me to the hospital and stents were placed in my heart and the good news is that there was no real damage and I will probably never need open heart surgery. It is something I’ve expected to need since 1998, when I had my first heart attack at thirty-eight. But the myocardial infarction was caused by the stent I was given in ’98 becoming dislodged. Stents have come a long way in twenty years. I really only have the best in store for me now! All blockages taken care of. But despite a month of not having to go to work, and lots of rest, it just didn’t lend itself to writing.

Have I mentioned I have two husbands now? We’re about to celebrate a Continue reading

the passionate shepherd to his love

Come live with me, and be my love,
And we will all the pleasures prove
That valleys, groves, hills and fields,
Woods, or steepy mountains yields.

And we will sit upon the rocks,
Seeing the shepherds feed their flocks
By shallow rivers, to whose falls
Melodious birds sing madrigals.

And I will make thee beds of roses,
And a thousand fragrant posies,
A cap of flowers, and a kirtle
Embroidered all with leaves of myrtle.

A gown made of the finest wool
Which from our pretty lambs we pull,
Fair lined slippers for the cold
With buckles of the purest gold.

A belt of straw and ivy-buds,
With coral clasps and amber studs,
And if these pleasures may thee move,
Come live with me, and be my love.

They shepherd swains shall dance and sing
For thy delight each May morning.
If these delights thy mind may move,
Then live with me, and be my love.
