Animals & Such- In the Archives

Caught them lizards
Was small
Raised some pigs
When I got tall
But you might say
I'd gone too far
Well then I raised these boys
So they could hear me call!

Who collected fish


Mentioned this

More than twice
Well looking back
Still a joy

All them critters
The overgrown
The difference between friends and pets is that friends we allow into our company, pets we allow into our solitude. ~Robert Brault,
I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals. ~Winston Churchill

Ever consider what pets must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul - chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we're the greatest hunters on earth! ~Anne Tyler, The Accidental Tourist

Giggling about Peter Pumpkin Eater's wife in the pumpkin shell. And smiling at all your critters and kids. A nice assembly of those to love and be loved by. And I really like the Robert Brault quote. So true!

Love the poem, the pictures and all the thoughts. I often wondered what my late cat thought of my mom. They didn't like each other. Both of them were afraid of the other and they didn't know it! lol I really like the quotation of Robert Brault.

You asked me what I've been up to and actually you asked before I could finish my post about that, lol. It is up now. Hope you're having a great weekend. It was a wonderful day here today but now it has started raining. We are entering our rainy winter season though I hear this year will be colder and snowier due to El Nina.

I LOVe these quotes!!! And your cute bird peeking from inside the pumpkin!! "Peter, Peter pumpkin eater, had a wife and couldn't keep her. So he put her in a pumpkin shell, and there he kept her very well!" The picture of your boys is a georgous and joyous sight to behold!!

Hey there Regina, I can't reply to your comments with email because it is from blogger mail (not your own email; or, I don't know how, lol). Anyway, I got one long comment and one shorter one from you on my last post. I've read them both but need to read them again and I will post comments back (on my blog), esp. about the dentist! Thanks so much for being a friend and leaving comments. I do appreciate it so much ;-)

He is cozy in the funny pumpkin.
All lovely pets give us love and smile, and moreover a pig gives both of energy and health. Thanks to their tolerance.

Pigs look equal to us, but they ran too fast in the wild and banged onto my car when I was going for my hiking trip.

Pigs are clever animal.

There's much in the world that you can't explain.
It's revealed for you to remember
by the whispering voice of a distant train
or a midnight rain in november.

Horizon within! You can always find
the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
is Nature naught but extension.

Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
by fear and longing you roam
that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
...on your random journey back home.
