Over the weekend I picked up some yellow flowers

and I've been enjoying them dancing in the sunlight

Max the Wonder Dog

My son-in-law's dog Max died on Monday

He was 14 year's old and had lived a good life...

very sad though and he will be greatly missed

Family dogs are missed as old uncles or aunts are

we speak of them as if they were grand old characters in our families

and we remember them long into our old age...

My mum still remembers how her father would send their dog, Buttons,

up onto her bed in the morning.

Tuesday we had a mega-storm Stella come in....

We were spared much of the snow they called for

What we got was very high coastal tides, ferocious winds,

and very low temps


and in honor of the Irish....


  1. oh no, i am so sorry to hear about max...losing a pet is like losing a family member :( love the flowers and the clover! happy st. patrick's day...have a great weekend and thank you for linking!

  2. Happy St. Patrick's Day! Love yellow -- such a happy color! Max was a very handsome guy. I know he will be missed. Fur babes are important members of the family. If they could talk!!! Glad Stella was kind to you. Happy Friday!

  3. Ach! Max the Wonder Dog will certainly be missed . . .

    Your Photos are Gorgeous!

  4. I'm sorry about your son's dog. Ours lived for about 14 years, too, and even though I'm not much of a pet person, I still mourned her. They do tie in to many family memories.

    I'm glad the snow missed you! Hopefully it will feel more like spring soon.

  5. well here in NY we were NOT spared!! my town in eastern NY got 17 incehs and up wherer i hike and kayak the mt area got 46!!

    so sorry to hear of the loss of the beloved dog.

  6. I'm glad you were spared the brunt of the storm. We had some snow and high winds but didn't suffer any damage. Enjoy your weekend. :)

  7. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you too!
    I'm sure you were relieved to miss the majority of the snow and it sounds like even the high winds and surf didn't cause much damage. Hopefully, this will be the last big storm of the season for you.
    I'm sorry to hear about your son in law's dog-- I hope for comfort to him.

Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
