This is Lily. She doesn't stand still for pictures very well, so this is a rare shot. She is 3 years old and not spayed. Chip, my neutered black lab, thinks Lily is his wife and tries to mate with her. He cripples himself trying to make puppies with her every time she goes into heat. Turns his organs inside out because he can't overcome his nature. Just like a man...

Second second thoughts

What else am I doing? I will write when I feel like it. I got some nice feedback before and that is all it took to get me started again.

I think I have middle child syndrome, if there is such a thing. I am the third child of 8 children. The first 6 of us were born within 7.5 years. My twin Aries sisters were born 8 years after the sixth child; I was 13 then. So, if the middle child sandwiching process didn't make me feel like my thoughts and feelings were unimportant, the parochial education and the sisters of Mercy definitely let me know that there are always others who are more important, or more needy, or better at everything than I. It was character-building, for sure.

My thoughts and words may not matter, yet I created this blog. I may as well use it.

I walk almost everyday in my woods. I love these woods. So do Lily and Chip. Lily is an australian shephard/border collie mix. She is herding Chip in this pic. She slammed him when he came out of the brush. She gets very alert and expectant when I put on socks in the morning. Then, she really knows we are going for a walk when I go for the boots. I have to fend her off as she starts herding me as I try to put them on.

Peace out

I am having another one of those mind-changes.

After reading some fun blogs lately, I have decided that I don't want to put my thoughts in print like that. Mine wasn't that interesting, except to me; and even then, only sometimes.

I am a talker, though. It is a much better tool for communication for me, though I don't get the power to edit myself and that would be a nice feature - to be able to take back what I said sometimes. Oh yeah, that'd be great.

I was hoping to attract some like-minded - other astrologer/counselor/philosophers. Jupiter's other people? Not everyone can belong to the Saturn family, huh?.

I deleted my first attempt at a blog. I don't know that I will have another. I am pretty sure it wouldn't matter as there are many, many entertaining and thoughtful blogs out there and I have other things to do.

As there are a few of my friends that pop in from time to time and tell me about it later, I leave a note saying, "you know where to find me."
