Time for a break from the massive de-cluttering project. I actually have other things I need to do, too, but tonight I'm just going to get to sleep early. I stopped at a friend's house after yoga last night to have a glass of wine. She and I are capable of talking for hours, and I ended up not getting home until after one this morning. But we got another warm beautiful day and walking a couple of miles at the lake helped.
But I do see some odd things at the lake. Like this.Why? Why would anyone stick a dress on their dog? It wasn't even for a parade or anything. This woman apparently just had her dog confused with a doll. And you know what that dog is thinking? "Uh huh, you think this dress is sweet and I should be happy to wear it? One of these days, lady, I'm going to rip your throat out while you sleep."
But maybe the dog keeps silent because he knows that old commonly used expression about the effect of words on breaking bones and buttering parsnips. What's that? You don't know that one? Okay, neither do I. In fact, the vaguely nudge, nudge tone of this makes me pretty certain this one was designed for that game where you add the words "in bed" to the end of your fortune. Some things in life just defy understanding.

Did you make it to the Milky Way To see the lights all faded and that heaven is overrated?" (Train)
