Sweet beast. Lover of his pool. Digging to China. Or wherever he thinks he’s going. Demanding. Sweet. Smart. Listens. Doesn’t listen. Jumps high.. Full of energy. Loves the sun. Not a fan of heat. Sock stealer. Owner of three beds. Has trained his humans well. Snap – Snap. Treats delivered. Frozen green beans. Diagonally sliced carrots. Crunchy ends of lettuce. Pasta lover. Good dog. Bad dog. Cucumbers daily. Proud little beast. Loves “his people”. Best burglar alarm ever. Eyes in back of his head. Can hear someone coming in a deep sleep.

Oh What A Tangled Web We Weave

SORRY to those of you who don’t deal well with the creepy crawly things – I can certainly relate!

Oh the memories… I had a realistic size black plastic spider 🕷 when I was a kid. On occasion I would leave it somewhere to surprise my family (sorry about that) – I would hear a SHREEEEEK – AH! They found it, hee hee. Undoubtedly I would forget about it and go about my business and when I least expected it, there it was  🕷 😳 A shreeeeeek would erupt from deep within, heart palpitations ensued. Ah, they got me back! There were long lapses in between spider hidings – I think I had to let the memory wear off, ha ha… Hmmm, wonder where that spider is?

You’ll hear me if I find it!

Happy 4th of July!

I always keep my eye out for cool flag photos for the various holidays that call for them. Today is the 4th of July (as if you didn’t know!) – Enjoy your time off (if you have it)! Happy 4th! 

I am happy to be firework free, for both the dogs who have such a hard time as well as the veterans hearing what sounds like bombing. I can only imagine the nightmare that July 4th brings. We are fortunate that Charlie wants to attack the fireworks/lightening/any loud noise…

If you have a dog who is scared of fireworks, have you tried a Thundershirt? Or this unique way to achieve similar results using a scarf or ACE bandage. Maybe some background soft calming music (Pandora Ocean Sounds) or music from RELAX MY DOG– A lot of dogs are so frightened and if left in a yard will find a way out so that they can run. So many dogs are lost on the 4th of July. Ugh…

Be conscious of other people’s feelings regarding fireworks. They can be fun for some and a nightmare for others…

🇺🇸 Holiday week 🇺🇸 – posting photos daily for the many of you who are away from the computer. Not a bad idea, enjoy yourselves! Back to normal posting next week…

Have a great day and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow!

Fathers of all kinds…

Fred and Charlie 🐾 – April, 2010 – Folly Beach, SC

There are all kinds of fathers in the world. I want to say thank you Fred for being the best dad to Charlie, the four-legged kid, who he is carrying down the steps (above) on Charlie’s first view of the ocean (April, 2010). He loves Folly Beach, ha ha… Fred, you’re the best! ❤️🙏

Me and Dad – December, 2006 – My “better than botox” shot, hee hee

Dad, thank you for being such a wonderful influence in my life. Your curiosity and ability to learn absolutely anything has made me equally inquisitive. Your calm demeanor and sense of humor is always refreshing. I have been so blessed to have such cool parents.

PS – I heard his daughter (me!) created a website (FidlerArt.wixsite.com/arts) to showcase his newest art creations! WOW, is it fantastic! Check it out!

❤️🙏

Fred’s Dad… Carlisle, AKA “DC”

Another great dad… Fred’s dad, Carlisle. Seen above camping and having a great time! Fred and I both know how lucky we are to have grown up with such wonderful parents! ❤️🙏

Beyond blessed, wishing those of you who are a father, a wonderful Father’s Day.

To those of you who want to be, or are about to be a father – lead by example. Teach your kids to do the right thing, to be kind, and to care.

And finally, to those of you who have lost your father (or your child). 💔 My thoughts and prayers are with you on this day. It cannot be easy… know that he is always by your side offering assistance whenever you need it.

What’s better than a geranium full of buds?

Truly! What is better than a geranium full of buds? They’re so pretty and illuminate the table that they are now sitting on in the yard. It seems every time I look in the backyard it is glowing. This geranium is also pretty with the wild ferns in this photo… I love the shadows in the backyard – beautiful!

Fresh as a daisy!

I have always loved daisies. They have a simple beauty about them. They aren’t bright or flashy, they’re just pretty and fresh. Hence the saying “fresh as a daisy” – full of energy and enthusiasm!

Wishing you a fresh-as-a-daisy day!

When thank you is not enough…

This is one of my favorite homes in Charleston, SC. We used to walk by it when we worked at a gallery on Broad Street. It’s got such charm! Of all the times I have walked by this house I have NEVER walked by without a car parked in front of it, so when I saw this I was ecstatic! SNAP that photo! I could sit on that porch all day long! So much to see right in this spot…

Have a wonderful Memorial Day, remember the reason behind this day off for many…. Thankful for all those who served and lost their lives fighting for this country.  🇺🇸 #thankyouisnotenough  🇺🇸
