Wield Your Assets and Critters

Welcome to another post for


and I'm posting to City Daily Photo.

Well, they say birds are sky bound. Just ask Alfie.

The bird who dares to fall is the bird who learns to fly. 

Gorgeous, sweet pup Rusty is living his dream finally, on a family vacation!

Proud and oh so happy Rusty!
"I love my humans, barks Rusty."

My daughter's pups have it rough, don't they? NO, not at all since they're only minutes away from their humble abode the greatest hiking places many dogs and humans dream of. 

Ecstaticness ensued!

 They gave the best welcome home loving ever.  

Meanwhile, somewhere not too far from where I live (about 2 miles if that)

"Houston, we have a problem."

"Where in the world are we now?"


Lost in our own private little magical jungle.

Speaking of jungle in which there are so many meanings this next quote I feel like was designed for me. 

"Emotion is 'recognition'. When treasured moments are identified in the jungle of our personal history during a visual or aural encounter, we capture magic sparks from our past, arousing flashes of insight and revealing an inner flare. These instants of recognition may kindle enthralling emotion and fulfilling inspiration. (Those journeys of love)
Erik Pevernagie

"Never forget the nine most important words of any family,

I love you.

You are beautiful.

Please forgive me."

H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Greetings from, Clifford, King of the Hood. 

"About being humble every person/(and may I add critters too) that you meet knows something you don't; learn from them. Think lightly of yourself and deeply of the world."

H. Jackson Brown Jr. quotes

Talk about a kissable face! Meet Francis always willing to be adored.

Am I a Betty Boop wanna be? 

"Wield your assets like a blade, Cousin. No man has invented a corset for our brains. Let them think they rule the world. It's a queen who sits on that throne. Never forget that." Kerri Maniscalco

"You only need one ray of light to chase all the shadows away." 
Fredrik Backman

 "Although, we shouldn't give shadows a bad rap."

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and it's not always about having it all mapped out being spontaneous has so many advantages.

Thanks for visiting and take good care of you always.

Thanks I’ve been spending time out there since 1989! The woman that created it has passed a few years ago but her son is carrying it on! So many memories.
