Weekend Wisdom: Betty White

The First Picture – Move In Day.

So very true.

RIP Betty, thank you for being a friend to animals.

Once someone has had the good fortune to share a true love affair with a Golden Retriever, one’s life and one’s outlook is never quite the same.

40 Days of Joy

Weekly Photo Challenge: JOY

Today I am taking part in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.  Every Friday a new theme is revealed and bloggers are encouraged to post a photograph whether or not they have a photography blog. How could I not participate when this weeks theme is “Joy.”

This picture of Rommie making a snow angel was taken a few weeks ago. It is by far the best snow angel picture I have taken over the years.  Rolling around not only brings her joy but brings joy to my heart as well. Whenever I see her making snow angels, (or practicing her technique in the spring, summer or fall), I stop what I am doing and just watch her. Doing so brings back joyful childhood memories.

Those were the carefree days, my friend.
