On Halloween, I ran errands and stopped at the local bank. Upon entering the door, there was a sign posed: Please remove masks, wigs, fake facial hair or something to that effect. Would a robber take it off? Duh! Cracked me up.
Before leaving, I spied in the treats some bubble gum. Hum, bubble gum? How long had it been since I had any? A very long time ago. So, what the hey. I grabbed one. On the way home I unwrapped the piece while Zen sat next to me and watched intently…thinking it was his treat. NOT this time dude…it is mine!
Well, it has been awhile since I have chewed bubble gum, let alone any gum. I began chewing and right away tried to blow a bubble. ZIP nothing. Amazing how I had forgot. Come on Sandra, you remember... you have to chew it for a while. In visiting a childhood memory it took some time for me to get back in the “bubble groove." My next attempt in blowomg a bubble finally formed a nice size one, as Zen came over and stuck his noise right in the middle. Hmm, ever try to get gum off a dog’s nose? Interesting challenge.
This morning the resident pair of doves affectionately named; “Benny & Joon” were waiting for their seed. However, to my surprise they invited some passing friends and/or family, since the porch was full of doves. Okay, they just might be pigeons. They are a beautiful tan with a darker tan ring around their neck. I have tried to find a photo of them to no avail. Anybody know? Benny & Joon have been around a couple of years now and they hang out in the neighboring fir trees. However, the rest of the flock left town.
This next week most of the country will be focused on the elections. Remember those on the East Coast affected by Sandy, whose focus this week will be only to stay warm and to be able to eat a meal. Let alone many who are now homeless. And believe me I know what that can feel like.
