I was in the States recently and had occasion to visit a grocery store. I saw this and smiled.
I enjoyed a Moon Pie or two in the past. I also smiled because it reminded me of my beloved Moonpie, the goofy and sweet ball dog that went on ahead in 2005.
A very good reminder of of a very good dog.
The rising moon illuminates the final evening of this calendar year. The next calendar year will rise in a few hours. Like all years it will be a year of good, indifferent, and not good events. (My feeling is that it will be another year of a general, almost imperceptible slide.)
I will try to accept all that happens with grace and equanimity.
Many things to be grateful for.
We have our health, a snug home of our own, friends and family in good health, healthy dogs, are neither obscenely wealthy nor destitute.
I am grateful that we have so many similar interests. Reading, sitting on the deck listening to the grass grow, quiet evenings at home, occasionally going for a hike, able to take change and upset with equanimity.
2017 has been a good year. 2018 will be whatever kind of year it will be. I’m fortunate to go into the new year with so many blessings.
It’s difficult to take a not-endearing photo of our senior Achilles. We are so blessed to have such a good boy.
To my dear and valued Facebook followers: the countdown begins. My blog posts will no longer be cross-posted to Facebook in the new year. I invite you to continue following me at my blog.
Red – tomato. White – onion and garlic. Green – jalapeno, cilantro, lime (the juice of several limes). Sum = home-made salsa.
2017 was a good year for Faye and I. we have many things to be grateful for. We have our health. A snug home. Work we are nicely compensated for. Three good dogs in pretty good health. Family and friends.
