As always fun, and diverse posts, Hilary. Beautiful imagery, or beautiful words, moving concepts or pictures (redundancy, it should be my middle name ;-) ).

But I've a story to tell you to go with your posts. As usually I clicked on your blog, and immediately started happily reading the gathered posts. Halfway through I had to stop, and take my dog for her morning walk, which can be a bit of a challenge. As you know, she's still learning about the world, and learning to behave in it.

My neighbor across the street has a Giant Schnauzer, and she takes this massive doggie running with her everyday. Some days I miss her running windows, other days I accidentally hit it. Puddles, of course, wants to run with the big dogs, and for five solid minutes after the sprinting Schnauzer crosses our path, I'm in for a battle of wills, with a terrier. Results are mixed.

I arrived home, sweaty, a tiny bit winded, and more than a bit cross because Puddles had not merely been willful, she'd gone berserk trying to chase after the running dog.

Then I came back here, and read more stories. Someone took me on crop dusting ride with her father, and I felt perfectly at peace.

Just letting you know, you had the cure for Sprinting Schnauzers today, in case you were wondering.

Pearl said...

How kind of you! Thank you so much!

And now I am off to read the other posts.

I was in for a surprise today, i was wondering what's happening when i saw the comments which said congrats on POTW...

Thanks a lot Hilary, I'm honored

Russell said...

This is quite belated, but thanks so much for listing me as a Post of the Week recently.

I have been taking a hiatus from blogging for the past few weeks except for a few posts.

Always enjoy stopping by and finding new bloggers.

Take care.

A truly diverse collection, thank you Hilary. Just come from reading you latest picture post...awesome.

Hilary said...

Thanks everyone for your always-kind and encouraging words. They're very much appreciated. I'm happy to know that you're enjoying the same posts that I am.

Shimp, that's a lovely thing to say. I hope that Pearl reads your comment too. I'll try to make sure of that, in fact.

Thanks, all. :)
