Day 25 of my gratitudes:
I am grateful for my old friend and companion, Lucy Ho, my sable colored Chinese shar-pei. Lucy set a standard so high that I still miss her although she died in 2001. I am so very grateful that I got to meet her and to know her for eight years. That level of friendship is something I would hope everyone could have in their life.
I am grateful for photographs, those tangible squares that are all I have left of some of the finest people I ever met.
I am grateful for apples – sweet, tart, crispy, delicious – also good for throwing at mean trees in the land of Oz, and for putting that silly ass Snow White in a coma. Shame on her, living with 7 dwarfs out in the woods. What a hussy.
Have a great day and don’t forget to be grateful.
