I hope I never lose my sense of wonder. If that makes me naive, then so be it.

dog logic

Oh, Sam, you silly boy.

Yesterday was one of those days that provided an after-supper hour of still, quiet sunshine that just asked me to come outside. Then, the hammock got into the game and I couldn't resist that. So there I lay, starting to doze in the golden light as a bug buzzed lazily overhead. The mosquitoes even cooperated and left me alone for the most part. So nice, so peaceful. A little bit of paradise.

Then Sam, in his infinite canine logic, decided that what this person resting, lying still, one arm thrown across her eyes to shade the light, a slight smile playing across her lips as she enjoyed the warmth of the sun and the sound of the wind teasing the leaves, needed was a HUGE SLOPPY KISS.

Several, in fact.

I got up after sputtering for a while. It had been nice while it lasted.
