Mirror: “I’m multiplied!”

Mirror Weekly Photo Challenge
“Hey, that’s me! I’m multiplied, multiple times!”

As this dog walked past me and this car…I was at the right place at the right time for this reflection picture.  I really like this photo, and I’m glad to share it here.

Oops! WP Weekly Photo Challenge

What’s that stuff sticking out of Sir Thomas’ head?  It looks huge and heavy!  As far as I know, Sir Thomas is not related to Hercules.  And, this certainly is not his Top Hat!  OOPS! It’s a water-tank.  I was attempting to take a picture of Sir Thomas looking out the car window, and this oops happened 🙂

If You Leave…


It’s been cloudy and raining, intermittently, all day since yesterday.  Still, a nice fall day.  Today, however, it’s chilly, due to cold gusty wind.  I’m all ready for my walk, dressed in layers, for this day.  But my walking companion, Sir Thomas, still in the same spot since 7:30 AM.  It’s 11:15 AM, now.  He looks like a hot-dog stuffed in a bun on our couch.

Hot-dog Sir Thomas

“Let’s get you ready boy, and go for our walk,”  I say to him.  He gives me a stare, which, I can hear loud and clear, “I am not going anywhere, today; you carry on alone, without me…I’ll try losing my extra pounds later.”  “I’m not giving up!” determined, I said.  Enough bugging from me finally gets him off the couch.  Without wasting time, within seconds, I get him ready.  We head out the garage door, and I turn left to walk out of our neighborhood.  Suddenly I’m pulled! In the opposite direction!

“Let me…” Sir Thomas seem to say to me, pulling me to a spot in the middle of our front yard, “Pee!”  Relieved,  he looks around, and sets his stride back toward the garage door, to go inside.   “No! We haven’t even started our walk!” I scream.

It’s ever-so-slightly sprinkling, and the wind has picked up…it’s gusty, for sure.  He really wants to skip this walk!  I pull him away from our house to get out of the neighborhood.  He pulls me toward the house.  I pull him away.  He pulls me toward…I pull him away…he gives in…he has no choice.  Sweet thing.  I love him.

Off we go, outside our neighborhood.  We hurriedly cross a street to get to our walking path. Those darn trees!  Sir Thomas takes forever to move from there.  He sniffs every angle of this one particular tree trunk.  Then, of course, marks a spot on it.

“Hi, it’s not too bad out here.” Enjoying the sniffing.

We  make a move again.  He’d rather be snuggled, today, comfortably on the couch.  He’s walking, today, because of me.  He loves me!

Despite the weather today, we are enjoying the nature.  We hear the birds chirp, the leaves rustle, the wind whistle, whisper and swoosh.  We see no one else out here, today.   But, we see hundreds of leaves here today, flying and falling to the ground.

image
“Leaves, leaves, and leaves! Every leaf has a potential to be sniffed and marked, by me. “

As we head back home from our walk, Sir Thomas’ pace gets faster.  I smile at his eagerness to get home.  Once inside the house, I notice his tail go up, completely.

“Glad that’s over!” Sir Thomas tells me; actually, his eyes tell me that!  He hits the couch; yawns, stretches and gets ready to snooze.  “Life, you are too good!  If you leave, I’m following you.”

Never! Ever (ever) EVER am I leaving this couch!

Just so you know Sir Thomas, I had a wonderful time today.  Those moments are now in the past.  Those beautiful moments are behind us!  This weather  – if you leave me – I know you’ll be back again.  This gusty wind and this chill – if you leave me – I know you’ll be back soon.  Time – if you leave me – you are not coming back.  Life – if you leave me – you are not returning.  And, that’s the reason I take the time to enjoy my life with you, Sir Thomas:)  Our walks are always interesting.  We won’t let our walks leave us!  We will walk tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow, and everyday after that!

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “If You Leave.”

Oh, Sir Thomas, you are in deep, deep thoughts. I wish you could tell me what’s on your mind. I do love you lots.

“Hi you know what? I feel lazy and I’d like to rest now. You know why? You did not give me a snack this afternoon!” Thomas being a Sir Thomas.

It’s true, I did not give him a snack this afternoon.  Guilty as charged!  But did he tell you what happened during today’s mid morning walk?   He did!  Hope he told you the truth.

Here’s my side of what really happened:  I had no idea what was about to happen, until it was too late –  Thomas had already grabbed a full size Snicker’s Chocolate Candy Bar in his mouth.  And, before I could finish screaming my words, “NO, THOMAS,” he had already inhaled the entire bar in one swallow!  It all happened so fast!   And, that’s the truth.   (“I still love you Thomas.”)

“I’m so happy…I’m where I see FOOD…you are where you see me…now give me what I want, you big DUDE!” Sir Thomas’ thought – loud and clear.  He lives for food:)
