Today's Poem

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I've heard it in the chilliest land
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.

---Emily Dickinson

Grumpy Old Man?...or not

Do you think Trouble is beginning to get used to his new sister? At least he's going to make sure she has clean ears :D
Thanks to Mom for the extra cute picture!

Happy Birthday, Gwyneth!

"But Mom, why can't I take my chewy outside???"
  So, today is Gwyn's third birthday! :D 
Registered as Under Penalty, she was born on September 22, 2008, the 5th pup of nine in the litter.
She ran 19 races between July 17th and October 30th, 2010.

 Being retired allows her time to pursue her modeling career.
"Look! A mouse!" :::sigh::: "It's just out of reach."

The culprit who put the mouse just out of reach...

We are blessed to have her join our pack and look forward to sharing many more wonderful years with our sweet girl!

Wild Ponies

Always a joy to see them...but especially nice to share them with friends who've never gotten to see them before!

 Lovely day in the sun, surf & sand with family and friends. Blessed.

Why it's Worth the Stress...

So, yes, it is really stressful living in a hurricane zone. And, yes, sometimes the worst happens. We are very blessed that we sustained no structural damage from Irene and our family is safe. Why would we live here? Oh, maybe it has something to do with this...some of the views we get to enjoy:

Oh, and by the way, other than reducing the file size to better fit the blog these photos are completely unedited. Straight out of the camera.
