Under this shy and gentle March sun of ours

we were shooting the breeze, singing, sniffing, and eating grass! I could not love Mr Puffy Pants or Bubba Guss anymore than I already do.
Here they are following me around, I like for them to sit still so I can snap a nice picture but no, that won't work.
"Here I am," says Augustus. "What next?"

Curiosity finally moved the ginger puff.
Now he is giving me the 'I-am-ignoring-you' look. I know your games, I told Ollie, I know your games little man.
Feeling the craziness in the world, the boys decided to read and reflect upon this:

O ye lovers of this wronged one! Cleanse ye your eyes, so that ye behold no man as different from yourselves. See ye no strangers; rather see all men as friends, for love and unity come hard when ye fix your gaze on otherness. And in this new and wondrous age, the Holy Writings say that we must be at one with every people; that we must see neither harshness nor injustice, neither malevolence, nor hostility, nor hate, but rather turn our eyes toward the heaven of ancient glory. For each of the creatures is a sign of God, and it was by the grace of the Lord and His power that each did step into the world; therefore they are not strangers, but in the family; not aliens, but friends, and to be treated as such. (Selections AB)

Hmmm! So tough! We agreed that this was a rather tough exhortation but we decided to think about it every now and then.

Later we all hummed to this, remembering him.

Boys then filled their paws with kisses and blew them in the air for you. Catch them because they are delicious and quite rare.

Ciao everyone!
