All Of Me

Maggie’s pawsability thought for the day:

“All of me, why not take all of me?
Can’t you see, I’m no good without you…”

Seymour Simons & Gerald Marks


  Oh my dog Maggie, sometimes that dang tennis ball love of hers drives me crazy. Take yesterday. Maggie was outside playing and rubbing that tennis ball of hers in the dirt. She continued romping around and then came indoors. I saw the dirt covered ball in her mouth. My thought was to switch the ball with a cleaner version. I threw a clean ball for her so she’d go get it. Maggie gave me a look like “Are you crazy? I already have a ball.” She didn’t budge. The dirty ball was still in her mouth. Ok, I’m thinking a ball in the mouth is worth two on the ground. You’re right Maggie, I give. Full circle; I take all of Maggie, which includes a dirty tennis balls indoors, because I’m no good without her!

    How lovely. What is a house with a dog if not liberally sprinkled with dog love (ie dirt) :-)

    Yes sometimes you have to accept the good with the bad. Of course with Maggie it’s very little bad. I love your use of Frank Sinatra’s song. I am reading a book about him that his wife wrote. I’ve always loved Frank Sinatra.

    Many blessings to Maggie and you,

    That’s right, what’s a little dirt! Who’s the fool here? If you would’ve seen the look Maggie gave me…
    I, of course was the fool for even thinking of making a substitution!

    I LOVE Frank Sinatra’s music. On a desert island if I had one choice-I’d take his music in a heartbeat.
    Years ago I read the Kitty Kelly unauthorized book about him. It was quite interesting. I imagine his wife’s take on him is a bit different. Thanks!

    ps. I have a webpage now;

    I still have a lot I want to do with it, but I’m quite proud of what I’ve done so far.
    I did it all by myself (non-techie)! I can build on the webpage inch by inch.
    Blessings back at ya! :) :)
