I prefer winter and Fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape — the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show. ~Andrew Wyeth

"Hey Brownie, I sure hope you're happy today. It just beautiful and the sun is shinning."
"Farmlady, do you have any of that good grass with the little white flowers on that side of the fence?"
" I do Brownie!! But the first thing I want you to do is acknowledge the fact that it's a beautiful day. You've been walking around here like it was the end of the world."
" What's acknowledge? What's that? Is that the name of the grass I like."

"No, Brownie, acknowledge means that you listen to what someone says and tell them you understand. Then you have to respond, somehow, and let them know that you heard what they said. In order to do this you have to stop thinking about yourself and pay attention."

'scuse me? I paid attention! You said that the sun was shining and I should be happy about it."
"That's right. BROWNIE! You WERE listening. So..., are you happy about the weather?"
"Yes, I am Farmlady. Now, can I have some of that knowledge grass, or respond weed or whatever it is. please?"

"Pretty please?"

  1. When Brownie has something on his mind he does not give up. The pictures are great and it did look like a beautiful sunny day. We have had cloudy and rainy days for the last two days and it looks like we are in for the same today. Did Brownie get his special grass? Have a blessed day and weekend. Madeline

  2. Brownie is a cutie. What a lucky guy he is.

  3. How could you say no to such a lovely face! I can just about feel his soft ears warmed by the sun!

    Did you give him a big handful?
