Okay, *Three* Dog Posts In A Row

Going for a record here.



Never pass up the opportunity to stick your head out the window during a car ride.

When loved ones come home, run to greet them.

Practice obedience. Except occasionally.

Let others know when they've invaded your turf uninvited.

Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you've had enough.

Always be loyal.

If you stare at something long enough, you'll eventually get it.

Don't go out without ID.

Leave room in your schedule for both a good romp and a good nap.

Take responsibility when you do something wrong. But make them drag you out from under the bed first.

If it's not wet and sloppy, it's not a real kiss.

If what you want is buried, dig until you find it.

When you're happy, jump up and down, spin around, and make a lot of noise.

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk with a good friend.

Speaking of good friends, we're off to the movies with them tomorrow afternoon. May your weekend be as enjoyable. I'll see you on Monday. On time, I hope.

Mark's Musings is sent each weekday - at some point during that 24 hour period - using Ezine Director and I pay a little extra every day to make sure those folks are certified by Habeas to be a safe sender of e-mail. That means you can trust what I send. Explicitly, implicitly, and with felicity. No spam. Ever. Subscribe, view past issues in my Archives, and otherwise click your day away at my web site. (There are years of archival jokes and links, for instance, and at least three years of "Web Sites of the Week" to browse. More to come, one day.) To contact me and sooner or later get a reply, click here. I love Facebook. Mostly. You can forward or reprint "Mark's Musings" freely but please keep the credits attached. Even your dog would leave the credits alone. Original material and musings © 2009 by Mark Raymond. I update this blog with a copy of the post daily and occasionally with "bonus material" whenever the mood or muse strikes. Look for the label that says "bonus" and you can bring it all up with one click. My personal mission statement remains John 3:30. Are you still a good reader? Yes! Yes, you are! Who's a good reader? It's you!


WORDS for YOUR WEEKEND: "One measure of friendship consists not in the number of things friends can discuss, but in the number of things they need no longer mention." (Clifton Fadiman)
