The Secret Life of Critters

 Good morning, everyone and welcome to another post for


and I'm also posting to City Daily Photo

Please follow me as I flip through the secret lives of flapping scarecrows of humanity to the rags and riches of dressed-up animals to the wags of love that dogs feel every day.

Three Wise Scarecrows!
A Scarecrow's purpose is to protect and not frighten. 

Be a scarecrow of dreams, guarding the seeds of your aspirations from doubt and fear."

You haven't really felt the deep meaning of friendship until you've felt the love of a dog, or cat or any other animal.

My daughter shared some love with photos of Mac and Athena.

One of the deep secrets to life is that all that is really worth doing is what we do for others.
Lewis Carroll

Meet Mac and Athena born from the same parents but different litters, and after a whirlwind of play it's time to relax and have comfort.
Dogs know how to live and enjoy life right?

Why dogs bond with other dogs; they share a common language, and communicate through their body language, scent marking and vocalizations, and because they love to play, it makes playtime an essential part of their life. Like humans play teaches us social skills, motor skills and coordination. Besides feeling safe and secure, they thrive on companionship. Dog is man's best friend. 
Dogs are mostly social pack animals thriving off of attention and affection pretty much like most humans.

Meet my Pumpkin friends.

"Much of the secret of life consists in knowing how to laugh, and also how to breathe."

Alan Watts

"In life, like art, there has to be an essential sense of weirdness."

Jo Brunini

"I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then."
Lewis Carroll

The joy of living is making little things big.

Some days are meant for play. So, what play do you have in store for today?

Go barefoot in wet sand! 

"The world is a coaxing whisper when the wind lips the trees, when the sea licks the shore, when animals burrow into earth and people look up at the sympathetic stars. The world is an admonishing roar when gales chase rainclouds over the plains and whip up ocean waves, when people crowd into cities or intrude into dazzling jungles." Jay Woodman

From Lake City, Minnesota

Everyday essentials.

"Curiosity, creativity and playfulness."

Thanks for your comments. 

and take good care of you.

Transportation What is Your Story

Posting to City Daily Photo

and our theme for October is Transportation

"Walking is the only form of transportation in which a man proceeds erect like a man, on his own legs, under his own power."

Edward Abbey

Transportation isn't the only glue within our daily lives. We know the importance of getting lost and uncovering some of the best kept secrets in our daily lives, beginning with our form of transportation.

Transportation runs a wild gambit, especially when we transport crucial stories surrounding our daily lives. Come take a bus, car, or perhaps a float to discover the stories in our lives.

So, what is your story?  

"It's like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story."


"When we are children, we seldom think of the future. The innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can. The day we fret about the future is the day we leave our childhood behind."


Kids listen up -

 If your Tails a Burnin' Our Wheels are Turnin'.

 A Fire Truck slogan.

"Words are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts." 


Cho0se your words carefully.

"Bones mend. Regret stays with you forever.


"It's not only great talking about community service in theory but actually doing it." Transporting our service everywhere we go!

 Adam Gardner

By transporting ourselves to higher places of service and giving.

and with each of those modes of transportation

"Life takes us to unexpected places sometimes. The future is never set in stone, remember that."

Erin Morgenstern

Thank you for stopping by and gifting me with your comments.

Enjoy your transportation wherever you go,

 and take good care of you!
