Wednesday..Hot and Dry.. Clyde Has Growled at Nothing All day!.. Ghosts?

"I have always paid income tax. I object only when it reaches a stage when I am threatened with having nothing left for my old age - which is due to start next Tuesday or Wednesday." ~Noel Coward

"You lie awake at 3 in the morning thinking of story ideas. You're online at 8 a.m. on a Sunday or midnight on a Wednesday. It's a job that you never push aside."
~ James Daly

"Poems in a way are spells against death. They are milestones, to see where you were then from where you are now. To perpetuate your feelings, to establish them. If you have in any way touched the central heart of mankind's feelings, you'll survive."
~ Richard Eberhart


... Three Word Wednesday... demure, offend, volatile

A Hidden Truth~

behind demure mask
hides one volatile temper~
offend cautiously

... Wordless Wednesday~


Another hot a dry day.. We have had plenty of those in a row.. they are expensive days.. you have to drink more.. and even if you don't buy bottled water you either have to pay for it or pay for the electricity to run a pump.. and of course you have to have a fan and an air conditioner.. or at least one or the other or maybe both.. yea both.. and you forgot there was a window open in the bathroom.. yes.. it's a bathroom.. gotta let smells out.. and so the cool air or even the fanned air goes out too.. it's a never ending cycle.. all of my plants want water.. I'm thinking on letting it rain here tomorrow.. set up sprinklers.. let the birds have baths.. listen to the frogs sing..

..... We are the proud parents.. (owners) of nine puppies.. they are two weeks old today.. Their parents were a gift from a friend.. I'm sure the dogs wouldn't have picked us.. but it was us or the pound.. Clyde has barked all day at nothing.. every once in a while he barks at the wall.. then tonight as we crossed the yard I saw a shadow.. actually an extra shadow.. me.. two dog shadows and hmmm.. who is the tall guy?... and then he growled.. I'd say a ghost if I believed in them.. maybe it's one getting an early start on Halloween.. but Clyde keeps growling at it even though it looks like nothing.. I think it's nothing.. Do you think it's anything?.. Maybe it's something.. No... No... I'm sure its nothing..

I hope you enjoyed your visit to my world today.. I welcome comments..
Have a wonderful day!

PUPPIES!!!! Oh, how adorable. I'm in a swoon, beholding the sheer cuteness. :)

And you did a great job with the words, in your haiku.

So very very very glad my daughter knows nothing about blogging. She recently got a dog book and has been trying to pick a new breed to get once our cocker spaniel passes. He's old, but I think she'll be waiting a while.

Those puppies are adorable!

And yes, it could be something supernatural. Especially if Clyde was going nuts about it.
