  34. Oh poor puppy -- left all alone ;>)! I knew you weren't very far away, after all you took her picture! Sweet thing. That fence is absolutely lovely. LIke the Oriental style painting of the fish. There is always joy here!

    The quote on top makes me smile. My mother always told us that and I was fairly advanced in age before I learned that her motto was not original ;>).

  40. Your photos and haiku are lovely, as always. Your sketchbook art is so very sweet. I am wondering if you are studying Sumi-e. And I am wondering what is a dragger. I mean, I can see it's a boat, but whatever does it do? Ok ok too many questions. Just have a wonderful long weekend and Ms. A.M. Dog deserves a treat for having to stay on the deck and wait! :) My poor doggie is suffering with a hot spot. :( Allergies every Spring!
