Those Crazy Critters! (vol. V)

A Compilation


Yeah - animals keep acting like people!!!  We really enjoy looking at these Crazy Critters!!!  I am so glad that THEY decided to adopt me ... the comfort, joy, and acceptance that that they provide on a daily basis is PRICELESS!  (I like bears too!!  Bubba's other alternative name is Oso! (and I WON'T gve the urban dictionary definition of Oso!  Nope-Not gonna do it!)  He is my Buppy, though!)


PS - Patches (and Happy Henry) want everyone to know that they are "personified" in number 6!  (Jo Ann was too until yesterday!  : )  )

Some Things To Think On ...

Just remember there is someone out there that is more than happy with less than what you have.



Self confidence is the most attractive quality a person can have. how can anyone see how awesome you are if you can’t see it yourself?



Animals are such agreeable friends. They ask no questions, they pass no judgments.



In dwelling, live close to the ground.

In thinking, keep to the simple.

In conflict, be fair and generous.

In governing, don't try to control.

In work, do what you enjoy.

In family life, be completely present.

Tao Te Ching


First they ignore you.  Then they laugh at you.  Then they fight you.  Then you win.

Mahatma Gandi


When someone tells me “no,” it doesn’t mean I can’t do it, it simply means I can’t do it with them.

Karen E. Quinones Miller








Here's a WINK to you!!!!

I don't know about you ... but i ALWAYS wink back too ... I really do believe that it is a Secret Code!!

It's working for me, so far ... I recommend it!!!

I mean ... maybe it just means "Ahoy Matey!" (but then you'd have to read this article to understand the context.)  I don't know!

But I am not taking a chance with some of my bestest buds!!
