What we love to do we find time to do.




After three months of almost continuous sunshine a day of heavy autumn downpours. The sky blanketed in grey from dawn to dusk.Whenever the rain eased up Wilf and yours truly would head off down the lane past culverts overflowing with water. I might have been happier staying indoors in the dry but Wilf was in seventh heaven savouring the fresh scents that the heavy rain had restored. Completely immersed in his exploration of trees and fence posts he was oblivious to time,cloud bursts or growling thunder.

Forty minutes of post-dinner quality time - mano a mano. Touch rugby, hide the meerkat and finally rug surfing before he fell sound asleep damp and happy. Somewhere along the line Wilf has learnt that simple lesson - what we love to do we find time to do.

  2. Bravo Wilf, well said. Love the first photo of you this morning. Looks like you may have applied a little hair "mousse" to achieve that look. How very retro disco - and stunning.

  5. Wilf has once again given a good lesson for life--I am convinced that he and others like him have unraveled the mysteries and smells of the universe! :-)

  6. Such true words! I love his little mussed up hairdo today, too! I also love that he's able to do those things he loves. That was my smile for the morning!

  7. Such restful imagery of the overcast day, showers here and gone, Wilf on a mission - using every minute to maximize his and your day. Makes me long for a three season porch with a tin roof and a very comfortable divan.

  11. I think that you've learnt that same lesson - making time to play with your Wilf. It's a lesson that dogs are very good at teaching us.
