I'm smiling today because ...
1. It's a beautiful morning here at the beach and promises to be a gorgeous day! I'm planning to take Molly for a walk once I finish creating and publishing this post ... then I'll tackle some of the tasks on my 'to do' list.

2. My 2nd PSE6 class ended on Thursday and the Advanced Class doesn't begin for 4 weeks ... so maybe I'll actually 'catch-up' between now and then as I practice & apply the skills I've learned and complete a few projects I've begun.

3. I have a fresh perm and cut ... Hooray!!!
No more 'frumpy, limp hair' in this warmer summer weather for another 3 months. I love 'wash & wear' hair ;--)

4. I've viewed this cute video clip of Twin Baby Moose playing in a sprinkler (shared at UR Olive) a couple of times and will probably do so again. It could bring YOU a smile too.

5. I shared two versions of a 'lion love story' last week at Sacred Ruminations ... one on Tuesday and the other on Thursday. If you're not aware of this incredible story, you might enjoy checking either (or both) out when time permits.

6. In doing some 'catch up' with Google Reader yesterday, I happened upon this Hump Day Humor shared a couple of week's ago by Jan at the Prytz Family. It made me laugh aloud and might tickle your funny bone too.

7. Be sure to check out the 'new name generator' shared by Lightening this morning to see what YOURS is ... and share laughter with others too.

Glad to know you are having a great weekend.

Dianne said...

Molly and Lucy are really into the curve of the turn! Looks like an Olympic event.

I'm more like Sassy - hang back and catch my breath lol

Great photo!

and congrats on your new summer hairdo! I had mine done Thursday along with a much needed mani/pedi - felt like I'd gone away for the weekend.

Lilli & Nevada said...

Looks like the doggies are having a great time.

Indrani said...

It is a race out there! BTW who was first? :)

Cheryl said...

I read on another blog that your "photo hunters" was up, but I don't see it. I've never heard of camera critters.

Those dogs sure do look like they are having fun and have energy I could borrow!

Great action shot.

What PSE classes are you taking? Just curious cause I have tutorials at my site.

Anonymous said...

Nothing beats a good Dawg Race!! Love to see them having a great time - fun photo :)

Carletta said...

What a great action shot for CC's!
So glad you're having a smiley Saturday.

Christy said...

Very cool action shot. I think I would definitely be the one hanging back. I enjoy watching things anyway.

Linda said...

Looks like the dogs are having lots of fun. Stop by and visit The Gardener Side to see my bluejay photos for Camera Critters this week.

Love that photo, they look like they're having fun!

Joyce said...

The moose video was fun. I was thankful that none of the children of the household were outside when mama moose and her children showed up though . . .

Mary said...


I enjoyed the photo of the doggy playdate. Meeko and a little dog from up the street visit each other almost every day. Meeko also visits two little dogs next door. He is very social.

I followed the links and enjoyed seeing the twin moose playing in the sprinkler. I had watched the videos of Christian the lion before. It's a wonderful story.

Take care. I certainly enjoyed visiting with you.

We have had lots of rain here today so instead of going fishing, the boys and I played Mario baseball. I even won a game. LOL


Kahshe Cottager said...

What great fun they are having. You snapped this at just the right time!

Have a wonderful weekend! My Camera Critters Here and Here

Misty DawnS said...

That's a great action shot for Camera-Critters! There's nothing like doggies playing together!

Eve said...

I loved your thought for the day...I do try to smile at people but do wonder sometimes if they think I'm some sort of mental case. So few people do it.

Rhea said...

I love action shots of dogs!! They look like they're having fun. My big sweet Annie wants to join in the fun. :o)

Great Camera Critters share!

Unknown said...

Your doggies picture is what makes me love this meme so much sheer fun!!!

Jane Hards Photography said...

A confrimed dog lover, this was a great action pic, and so cute.

Lapa37 said...

Looks like a great time.

Rambling Woods said...

Nobody has fun with such abandon as a dog..maybe we should take a hint..

AppleDebbie said...

My puppy Trooper loves playing with his doggy buddies too! Where in the world do they get all of that energy? Lol!

Roan said...

I love this action shot! You can see the fun those guys are having.

Ramblings of a Villas Girl said...

Awww.... I love the puppies and the poem that goes with them.

Karen said...

Hey, I'm Dorfus...or if I go by Stagwoman, it's Snickle. What do you think--am I a Dorfus or a Snickle?

I think we need a photograph of the new "do". Going to the hairdresser always makes me smile. :)

To Everyone – Thanks for visiting and sharing your thoughts. I’m delighted you enjoyed the ‘doggie playdate’ photo and my reasons to smile. I apologize for being S L O W to respond to your comments. Life’s been busier than I can handle for a few weeks now, but the pace of my schedule should be more manageable over the next few weeks … so I should be caught up soon. I’ve visited (and enjoyed) many of your CC and SS posts already. If I’ve not yet been to yours, rest assured I’m working on it and will drop by as soon as time permits because I love seeing what everyone shares each week. I hope you had a lovely weekend and are enjoying a pleasant week currently.
Hugs and blessings,
