Gold Horses and Pups

begin with
Four stunning horses.

Although, gold is not one of my favorite colors,
but my first car was gold, 
and it was a lemon from the beginning.

But gold can be stunning in appropriate places.

At the Minnesota Capital Building
St. Paul, Minnesota
he was one busy sculptor.

The grouping of four horses above, represent the
 classical elements of
earth, air, fire and water.


"The earth has music for those that listen."


"To keep the air fresh among words
is the secret of verbal cleanliness."
Dejan Stojanovic


"The most powerful weapon on earth
is the human soul on fire."
Ferdinand Foch

and water.

"If there is a magic on this planet, it is contained in water."
Loren Eiseley

"There is another alphabet,
whispering from every leaf,
singing from every river,
shimmering from every sky."
Dejan Stojanovic

Here's to a few of my favorite critters.

What a difference a haircut makes.

Finally Lyra's very own kitty cat! Best of friends in such a short time.

No you may not take my best buddy. All mine!

Somebody special got a kitty cat purse surprise in the mail!

Finally, Mommy took me to see Heidi, but oh baby it's really cold outside now!

I stumbled across this tasty piece of wisdom. But I think # 1 should be,
The love and devotion of your special critter, or critters, and of course family and friends.

Top 15 things money can't buy.
Time. Happiness. Inner peace. Integrity. Love. Character. Manners. Health. Respect. Moral. Trust. Patience. Class. Common sense. Dignity.

We are all different.
thank goodness
Attitude is a choice.
Believe in your heart.

Enjoy this day, and take good care of you.

precious fur baby photos!!
Love the sky shot with the colorful hot air balloon.

And as for the four horses, it reminds me of the ancient movie Ben Hur.
