How Can I Leave Thee?


Look. See here. I can do gorgeous, you wanna see gorgeous? I'll lie here so perfectly still in the snow. I just won't move until you snap your fingers. Once for get up. Two for sit down. Three like you just did for lie down. In. The. Snow. See? Gorgeous.

I saw the suitcase. I know you're off somewhere. Leaving me. So I have a plan. For the next few days I'm going to be so perfect. Hugging you. Heeling you. Leaning in on your shoulder and closing my eyes in bliss. Does you in, doesn't it? Those tears of guilt start to roll down your cheeks.

You might just change your mind.

I'll help you unpack.

  2. Ohhh, they are just so Baaaaad! I'm sure she will do fine while you are away, but first she'll tear your heart out.

    Sounds familiar.

  9. Ansa is so beautiful (and knows how to pose to her advantage)--they all seem to know that. Lovely picture.

  10. Like Linda (above) - this is the reason we simply can't have a dog.

    I wish we lived nextdoor - we'd dog-sit Ansa with the greatest of pleasure!

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
