Heart Attitude and Critters

It's bad vibes that can spoil a room, or a rally, and actually bad vibes ruin everything.

"Remembering that every room in your house, or wherever you may travel, is a place where memories are made. Be sure to include some animals in them as well."

"A mind is like a parachute. It does not work if it is not open." Frank Zappa
As critters go, they're always ready to please.

Good morning, and happy Monday to all. My weekend was a busy one, beginning with Friday night and Danny Jr. and I celebrating his entry into the double digits! 10 years old on my father's birthday both April 28th actually.  We made it to the opening of The Avengers movie naturally.

"A hug is like a boomerang, you get it back right away."
Rick Remender

"Because failure isn't an option
if success is just a matter of more effort."
W. Bruce Cameron

Dogs have important jobs, besides being cute,
like barking when the doorbell rings, 
but mostly to be your play buddy.

Critters arrive in mysterious ways. Some by realness others by paint.

"Uniqueness is like a signature,
nobody can forge it's exact copy."
Michael Bassey Johnson

"Life is a series of unique opportunities
It's our job to find the happiness in each one."
Rick Remender

Not all birds are meant to be caged.
Some are meant to be drawn.

Yep, I'm still checking the progress of "Ice out" on Lake Harriet.
South side is still winning so far, but at a very slow pace.

"Forever is composed of nows."
Emily Dickinson

"Happiness, not in another place but this place,
not for another hour, but this hour."
Walt Whitman

This day is too importantly dear to waste a moment of it.

Life doesn't give us purpose
we give life purpose.
A Flash quote.

Thanks for stopping in, your visits give me purpose in being here.
Take good care of you.
