Friday John Ku – AKA – TGIF

TGIF

 

Another Friday is upon us. I hope your week was good. Ours was fantastic. Our little rescue puppy, Twiggy arrived, and we haven’t been the same since. She is a bundle of energy and has a household of boxers and humans attending to her every whim. Of course, Eight-week-old puppies don’t have many whims. Eat, play, poop, pee, and sleep is about the repertoire. She does love to chase the boxers, and one cannot help laughing out loud at that scene. Two huge dogs running from her as if she just stepped out of an MGM lion logo shot.

The Contract is nearing completion. The paper edition is formatted, and the e-book should be done by the weekend. Gwen and I are formulating the marketing plan and know we will need some volunteers for a launch post. The launch is scheduled for June 11th with a pre-order period of a week before. We will need enough blog stops to fill two weeks. Stay tuned.

Today’s John Ku talks about the newness of life to the young. I hope you have a super weekend.

What seems old to us,

Takes on a new-minted face. . .

      3. Is she a picky eater?

      4. Nope. For some reason sometimes they become allergic to an ingredient. In her was we think it is chicken.

      5. Chicken seems like a big one for dogs. Although, I might be thinking of cats.

      1. At least they’re still young enough to do so. Not like having grumpy old ladies peeved at the young upstart!

    I love the image of Twiggy chasing as the MGM lion. The poem brought up the joy of seeing the world through those young pure eyes. Have a great weekend with Twiggy and the girls.
