Guess what day it is?
Mike Mike Mike Mike Mike! What day is it?
Ok, sorry, it's not quite hump day but any excuse to giggle over that commercial. What today IS though, is my puppy dog's birthday. The last time I celebrated one of my dogs' birthdays here on blogger and on Wordless Wednesday was the day after the Boston Marathon Bombing in April. And here we are a week and a day after the Navy Yard Shootings and I'm celebrating my other dog's birthday. (On a sad note, one of the victims is from my little town in Maryland where I grew up and I was on swim team with his daughters as a child. While I don't remember him, my brother and my father do. Apparently he was just the nicest man.)
I do have to pause and wonder what is going on with this world. This week it's the mall attacks in Kenya. It makes me somewhat scared for next week.
However, life does go on and we really must celebrate all the good there is in the world because it IS there. It's not as publicized as the evil, but it's there.
So to a good thing in my life, my boy Benny Blanco from the Bronx, I wish a very happy 9th birthday.
