My blogging friend, Russ Towne, wrote and posted the following today:
“Of couples I’ve seen
Way more than a few
Where one is the glitter
The other’s the glue.”
I smiled when I read that
Realizing that I do a lot of glittering
And my dearest friend,
My spouse of 55 years,
Has been a source of the glue
That sticks us together
And has helped this union last.
Yup, it takes both kinds.
Thanks for being the glitter
Right when we needed it, too.
My daddy was right when he said,
“Take this expensive tax deduction
Off of my hands!”
Glitter comes at a price.
I love that man of mine!!
He’s the glue that keeps the lawn mowed
And the glitter that keeps the love growing.
Couples need a lot of both!
Yes, I confess, I am a member of BostonTerrierAddicts on its FaceBook page. We post pictures and videos of our dogs and do a lot of ooohing and awwwing. Our Taze is the “Tazmanian Devil with Ears”. As a puppy, when we got her five years ago, her gigantic ears were straight up at only ten weeks young! We were going to name her “Angel,” until we met her. BOING! BOING! BOING! She was a jumping jack! Nope, “Angel” didn’t fit!
Most Bostons’ antennae stick up straight and as puppies the ears seem larger than the rest of the dog put together. When one ear flops and takes its time perking up, some new Boston Terrier people become quite concerned. When is it ever going to straighten up? Ike, one of my favorite Boston Addict pups, is four and a half months. Isn’t he adorable?
Not to worry!! That ear will pop up soon! And if not, who cares?
Well, I think Bostons are precious with or without both antennae working . Don’t you find them irresistible, too?
