This blog, of the five, is about the day to day stuff that doesn’t fall into one of life’s big four choices – MIND, BODY, SPIRIT, MONEY.

I mean, where would picking out a puppy fall? Or picking a Vet?

We’ve been going to the same Vet for 23 years, in Kissimmee, Florida.

As our most recent Lab Carter, began to fail rapidly on February 10, we chose a Vet much closer.

Why? Because I knew we’d be making many trips, maybe even daily. Chapin came with Carter and me several times.

I dug the grave (above) and buried Carter on Valentine’s Day.

Then the day after I laid Carter to rest, a Monday, I went in to pay the Vet bill.

Amanda, who saw me first, well, the first thing she said was, “How’s your son?”

Is There Any Place Like It?

Ever go on vacation and even though you’re relaxing and enjoying yourself, you still have a place inside you that yearns to be home again?

Not everyone experiences it, but many do.

Waking up in your own bed is a nice feeling.  There’s a comfort and familiarity that accompany the daily routine that’s about to begin.

This is all based on the assumption that you’re living in the home that is building you.

Fox?

Not A Fox, But Close Enough
Not A Fox, But Close Enough

We go on vacations to get away from it all, to have fun, and to be happy.

But why do we need to leave our homes to get that?

It seems counter-intuitive to me, but not in a good counter-intuitive way.

I mean, as adults, shouldn’t we make our homes a place where coming home is like an oasis from the real world?

So last night, it was late, and pulling into our long driveway, you could see the two beady eyes immediately, about 30 meters away.

A fox.

I love country living. It often feels like a vacation.

Did you do it yesterday?

Huh?

Exactly.

Did you do all the things from yesterday’s post?

I did.  This Russian blog validates it (second paragraph). Sheer serendipity.
