Tuesday Already?!

Treasure Island Beach Fla. Corinne, my niece has been visiting! I have been so busy! Never a dull moment with her around.
Then a friend had to go away for a few days and I am now with 2 dogs! yikes, how much fun is one woman to have! our dogs get along just fine, but walking 2 dogs is soo much FUN, not. Then the issue of where do they sleep! They want to play into wee hours of the night! We have taken to putting in separate rooms, but they try all night to get together to PLAY! Of course Mollie, the visitor doesn't want to eat, but my dog Snickers loves her food. Today I even took him out longer so she could eat, did she eat, of course not! I figure she will eat eventually!
Did I mention they look a little similar? Snickers on left Mollie on right
O my niece doesn't like animals!

A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things - a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.

O I almost forgot- the tree I posted about last is an Oak- it is dated 300-500 yrs old-how do they date a tree again!?
