Sunday Reflections…

I was sleeping like a log, until my wife let the dogs in…  Then both of them leapt on me with a flurry of licks 🐶 They are so happy 😀 Nobody loves you like your dog! When I count my blessings, they are always there. Sunday mornings are the best!

When my dogs pile on ya’, you come out well washed 😂

“I lie belly-up
In the sunshine, happier than
You ever will be.

Today I sniffed
Many dog butts—I celebrate
By kissing your face.

I sound the alarm!
Paperboy—come to kill us all —
Look! Look! Look! Look! Look!

I sound the alarm!
Garbage man—come to kill us all —
Look! Look! Look! Look! Look!

I lift my leg and
Whiz on each bush. Hello, Spot—
Sniff this and weep.

I Hate my choke chain—
Look, world, they strangle me! Ack
Ack Ack Ack Ack Ack!

Sleeping here, my chin
On your foot—no greater bliss—well,
Maybe catching cats.

Look in my eyes and
Deny it. No human could
Love you as much as I do.”

For those who came out early on a 27 Degree Morning For A Pond Plunge – April Fools 😊

I was gonna take that plunge, but man was it cold out there 🥶 Instead, we snuggled up and got a few extra minutes of sleep 😴

My dogs said it was just TOO Cold this morning 🥶 They formed a defensive puppy pile that I couldn’t escape 😊 Maybe we will do a Plunge next year…

PS: Be nice on April Fools Day!

And PPS:Happy Birthday Uncle Doug! 😊

Peace ✌🏻

A Little “Hump Day Koi Fix” | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Just a short video today of one of our display ponds. The koi are swimming and coming around to see what I’m up too 😊 And Scout makes a surprise drive by…

We are feeding daily now! The water temperature is finally right in all the Ponds at Carters Nursery, so daily feedings are on the schedule again 😊 Stop by and see what’s happening for a good dose of Spring! A “Nurseryfix” if you will 😉

Have a great day!

Sunday Reflections…

The wind has calmed, the rain has ceased, Daylight Savings is in full effect & Spring is in the air! I got out first thing with the dogs and had some fun 😊 They are as excited as I am about this Spring like weather! Now, it’s time to fix breakfast for the family- Country Ham, biscuits & gravy coming up 🐖 🍳 Oh, Coffee! Lots of Coffee! 😊🌞

They did a little runnin 😊 Everybody is happy about Spring!

“March bustles in on windy feet
And sweeps my doorstep and my street.
She washes and cleans with pounding rains,
Scrubbing the earth of winter stains.
She shakes the grime from carpet green
Till naught but fresh new blades are seen.
Then, house in order, all neat as a pin,
She ushers gentle springtime in.”

Have a Great Sunday!
