Animals Over The Counter

My pal Joan’s 91 year-old aunt sent her these she sent to me, when, unbeknownst to either of them, I was having a really bad day.  They lifted me up, as only the four-legged can.  I of course added the nonsense, but hey…it’s what we thin girls do when we’re blue.  We make lemonade out of lemons by penning silly sayings.

  1. I love it when two different types of animals cuddle together. Shows us what is possible.

    My favorite is the one with the fox and bunny, but like them all. The first pic could be our house. If someone leaves the door open, it’s not unusual to look in the breezeway and see a few chickens, guinea hens, our two cats, and Sam the dog.
    Great start to the week.

    • I love that one too, how generous nature can be. I remember rescuing a bunch of kittens in a trash bin, and we took them to a farm to a mama cat who just had babies who nursed them fondly. So many years ago, but her sweet, noble act has stayed with me. 🙂


  5. Very uplifting! Love the shoveling with the dog. Of course you can’t disturb him!

  6. Wonderful pictures, Susannah. Thanks for sharing them, they brightened up my day as well. Love your captions to them too. I think my favorite is the one with the rabbit and fox. What a interesting picture that is.

    A couple of curious chickens? (looking through the window, at that) That’s very very rare! 🙂
