Somewhere in Critterville

  Take a look around you, search for beautiful thing, especially beautiful to you, and not to the throngs of other folks. We're all out there enjoying this same journey of life's moments. Perhaps it's clouds, possibly a lovely line from a poem, (and that has made all the difference, by Robert Frost) or spend time with a fellow critter that always brightens your day. 

I hope you enjoy my own quest of "something beautiful to me" and be careful it may inspire you to go out and collect your own! I hope so.

Welcome to


I'm also posting to City Daily Photo.

Perspective of a pup,

 "Me and my shadow following along with my sweet girl."

And off we go, how to escape the day and feel fulfilled step by step. 

Life's happening at this very moment, and somebody has my ball. No worries, I shall retrieve it before you know it. Dogs say everywhere.

"We are seekers. So, what have you sought out today? You are the source of beginning never ever forget that. Without you, there'll be nothing. 

Bugs loves chasing any toy but most of all I think he loves being chased.

I got the chance this last Tuesday to hangout for a bit with my grand doggies. 

The secret of joy is to give and absorb love.

"Attention is our greatest asset. We all invariably attract what we give attention to." Azim Jamal and Brian Tracy from,

What You Seek Is Seeking You.

A radio station DJ once played this game with us, she'd give us a new word every morning and we were to concentrate on that word and she promised, "You'll see that word all around you.  Go ahead try it. To get you started I'll give you a word so go see what you uncover. 

The word is 


"A heart without dreams is like a bird without feathers." Suzy Kassem

That was your first bird, they'll be anywhere today I know it. Go bird seeking.

Come on please share some space with me.

said one turtle to another always.

Everything comes by being. 

I have a flowery heart but most of all I have Courage!

Oh, my where oh where are my siblings?

Dare to be you.

See nothing, speak nothing and hear nothing and you'll always have nothing!

If you want the answer, ask the question!

Really Mama?

So, will you please throw my ball already?


Always a fun critter Day at the museum.


A blast from the not so far ago past, at the Science Museum in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Be forever seeking. Be forever moving forward. Go.

Thanks for spending time with me.

Enjoy your weekend and take good care of you.

I love that 1st shot of the little girl with her pup. I'll be looking for bird today and also something beautiful to me.
I just turned the furnace on so winter is coming up soon.

Hello Karen,
I enjoy spending time with you and your furbabies. The dogs do love to play ball and fetch. Love the first photo with your sweet girl and pup. The museum critter is cool. Like the lions it is good to have courage and a heart. Love the turtles, they are cute. I see birds everywhere, today it was robins eating all the berries. We may have a first frost tonight. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy weekend. PS, thank you for leaving me a comment.
