Hi, and GOOD WODEN’S DAY TO ALL!!!

Campbell and I hope this day finds you feeling SUPER! As I’m writing, it is just before 8 in the morning. I don’t know for sure when I’ll get round to posting. Just know it’ll be before the day is through. Decided to try something new today. It’s middle of the week. We’ve made it this far. I don’t know about the rest of you, but for me, even though I’ve had a ton and half of blessings, some of which I’ll share. It’s been a little rough too. So, I thought I’d do something new. Something out of my normal routine. Something to get my mind Off my Troubles, and Onto Something Worthwhile.

I thought I’d gather some interesting tid-bits together, toss them into a document, and see what I came up with. Who knows? It might turn into a Weekly Newsletter. NOW! That’s where, YOU! the READER! Come in…! Yes, I’m going to ask for that old DREADED!!! READER PARTICIPATION!!! If you like what you see, or at least the idea of it, let me know. Your Feedback is Most IMPORTANT to me! So, Sound off!

You Can…

What is the Doves Spiritual Meaning

Signs and Symbols of The Dove

Posted in Animal Totems, Spiritual Symbols and Their Meanings

Symbolism of Doves and Pigeons

Dove and pigeons fall under the same spiritual meanings. The spiritual meaning of the dove is also its message, one of peace, love, and tranquility, a messenger of soft subtle angel whispers. Strongly associated with feminine and motherly energy the dove is a symbol of healing so powerful it’s able to ease the transition and pain of death.

The dove or pigeon has the magical properties of the fey folk opening doorways and lifting the veil between the world of the living and the world of the dead. Another bird with this spiritual meaning is the owl, strangely enough, the Torres Strait Islander Dove (Pied Imperial Pigeon ) sounds very similar to an owl with its mourning sound of coo woo.

Doves and pigeons spiritual meaning embodies the inner child bringing to the surface long lost memories and feelings. Doves and pigeons are often seen when a new baby arrives. A nearby dove will sense its presence and offer a blessing of health and healing for the new mother and family. Doves have a relaxing effect on the soul, to hear their coo is soothing and healing, heightening our vibrations for a state of meditation.

Pigeons and doves have their own unique way of talking away at each other spreading gossip, information, and messages amongst the entire dove community. With this in mind, pigeons become the greatest of spell carriers. Helping manifest by taking your spell up and out into the world for its return to you completed. To read a little more about this see new moon ceremonial intentions >.

Meaning of Pigeons in the House

Having a pigeon or dove entering your home spiritual meaning is, you have created a peaceful loving home and to rest and ease in that knowing. If the pigeons are many and aggressive it means the opposite, time to create some peace and love in the home.

What Does It Mean to See a White Dove?

White doves’ auger relationships and marriage, although not always a positive. Two doves seen together while on an outing with your loved one is a sign of a soul mate connection. On the other hand, a single doves spiritual meaning in the same situation means the opposite.

Meaning of Dove or Pigeon at Your Window

A pigeons spiritual meaning in the window looking in on you or staring is a good sign, dove sends the message of love and healing and maybe you need just that. A pigeon flying into the window augers a death you will hear about either relatives or friends. © psychic medium Ian Scott.

I thought that was pretty cool. Lately I’ve been seeing Doves everywhere. Just last week, Campbell and I were walking in the yard. I’d just made a long leash, and released him from working, when all of a sudden! Just as he began to sniff underneath a bush… Out Popped! Two Doves! They didn’t sound all that Peaceful though. After all, it was just before Sunrise, and a big hairy dog was poking his nose into their nest…  but, later in the day I learned that could mean the coming of a new Love Interest. Well… My Horoscope has been forecasting something about all that. Venus has been all up in my Astrological Charts too, so who knows? Hmmm? Maybe those Doves being all Riled Up is a foretelling of a Rough and Tumble Lover, with a Gentle Soul.

Speaking of Horoscopes… Thanks to GrannyMoon of:  http://Goddesschool.com/ and her Soulful Eating Email List, here is Today’s Forecast…

Daily Horoscopes for: Wednesday, 19 April 2017

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

If you`re born within cusp period (16 to 26 of any month); you`re advised

to read horoscopes of both signs covered by that period. You`re in the

border; you may have influences from houses within those signs.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Aries

Personal theme: I am!!

Fire & cardinal sign: March 21 — April 19

With the Sun in value-conscious Taurus over the next four weeks, your

focus will be on your income and possessions as well as the ideals that

hold value for you. You will feel empowered when your financial status

reflects the level of prosperity you aspire to, although you shouldn`t

measure your self-worth by how much you have in the bank. When you

recognize your honor and your inner worth, prosperity follows.

If you`re able to find beauty and enjoyment in even the bleakest of

environments, then you might not have too much difficulty in coping

with any gloom that`s around today. The fact is that those who tend to be

negative could be exaggeratedly so. Constructively though you could

challenge someone who tends to whine to make plans for better times

ahead. First though you may need to pump your own `tyres` which could

be deflated. In short, energy levels might need a boost.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Taurus

Personal theme: I have!!

Earth & fixed sign: April 20 — May 20

The Sun entering your sign announces the start of your birthday season.

At this time of year, the planets are perfectly aligned to empower you and

to emphasize your unique abilities. Over the next four weeks, you may

feel inspired to make improvements to your physical appearance and to

set new personal goals for the year that begins after your upcoming

birthday. It`s all about you!

Disillusionment is probable. You might now see that someone never had

any intention of ensuring a project was 100% successful. True you might

still get the last laugh – but not for some days. For now, it might feel as

though you`re moving through quicksand. Firing up for the next stage

could happen easily tomorrow. The professionalism of someone you`ve

met in the last few days could be just the inspiration you need.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Gemini

Personal theme: I think!!

Air sign: May 21 — June 20

With the Sun in placid Taurus over the next four weeks, you will feel like

taking life at a more leisurely pace. At this time of year, you require quiet

time to rest, recharge, and to reflect upon what has happened in your life

over the past year. Taking a personal inventory of events allows you to

determine which projects you should continue and where you need to cut

ties and make a fresh start.

As though you`d got up and found your tyres to be flat, it might not be so

easy to arrive on time or to meet a deadline. This could lead to you being

accused of skating on thin ice by someone who`s a stickler of punctuality

and professionalism. You might need to remind yourself how much they

need you and how valuable your emotional investment to a new project

would be to others. There`s always the possibility too of joining forces

with someone who has the required energy and skills.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Cancer

Personal theme: I feel!!

Water & cardinal sign: June 21 — July 22

The Sun in loyal Taurus could bring new friendships and revive old ones

during the next four weeks. This will be a great time to join groups and

clubs, and to participate in group activities that will allow you to meet

new people. It doesn`t matter whether you are the leader or merely a

participant. It will feel good to mix and mingle with different types of

people and to widen your social circle.

You could experience a degree of financial stress. Yet all that might be

required is some nimble footwork – which you might be in the mood to

practice. Dancing and swimming could feature too. Any or all of this may

be prompted by a Pisces friend who`s a little lost presently, but who is

aware that movement makes them feel better. This person might suggest

you go on an outing – perhaps to the sea or to a venue near a river.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Leo

Personal theme: I will!!

Fire & fixed sign: July 23 — August 22

With the Sun in diligent Taurus over the next four weeks, you will bring

dogged determination to the pursuit of your career goals. The movers and

shakers in your world will be paying attention, so you should strive to

make a favourable impression. Apply all of the wisdom and experienced

that you have acquired thus far toward advancing your career to the next

level. Are you ready to make your move?

Your brain might be telling you to forget all you`ve heard about a certain

individual and to follow gut instincts. Another part of you could be saying

that you`ve paid for expert opinion and so should listen to it. The best

course of action is probably to follow your intuition: which would probably

work best if you were by water or in the company of someone born under

a Water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces).

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Virgo

Personal theme: I analyze!!

Earth sign: August 23 — September 22

With the Sun in down-to-earth Taurus over the next four weeks, you will

be drawn to adventures that are both practical and productive. You might

decide to travel for educational or spiritual purposes. Or if you are

sticking close to home, you might enrol in an informative class or

workshop. Even spending time with people who come from a different

background or country could help to expand your mental horizons.

It wouldn`t be at all surprising if you felt to be caught between the devil

and the deep blue sea. Pushing forward plans might require too much

effort. What could work well is using visualisation techniques. Given that

in the next few months property developments are likely, now could be

the time to dream up plans. Practicalities are for later: which might also

make this a good day for thinking advertising and assessing the value of a

marketing proposal.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Libra

Personal theme: I balance!!

Air & cardinal sign: September 23 — October 22

With the Sun in sensual Taurus over the next four weeks, your focus will

be on cultivating an intense emotional or sexual connection with

someone special. It won`t suffice to just interact with a love interest in a

casual way. You will crave a bond that is deep and meaningful. Not

everyone is ready for this level of intensity, so seek out a partner who is

prepared to take the plunge.

You might wonder if you`ve been transported into a fairy-tale. You might

also be less than convinced that there will be a happy ending. A marketing

plan might turn you off – though it could be that you are only too aware of

the fragility of your finely-balanced scales. Colleagues born under Virgo

and Sagittarius could save your day with words of encouragement. They

might also know that those scales of yours will swing the other way in a

day or so.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Scorpio & Ophiuchus

Personal theme: I desire!!

Water & fixed signs: October 23 — November 21

Over the next four weeks, the Sun in steadfast Taurus will inspire you to

get serious about partnership. In both business and pleasure, your

happiness will depend upon your ability to cultivate strong, one-on-one

connections. This is definitely not the time to go it alone! A romance

could be upgraded to a more serious commitment. Or you may decide to

enter into a business partnership. Get set to meet your match!

Discovering appropriate keywords to sell an idea might not be at all

difficult. Neither might you find it too difficult to coerce others into

finding their creative strengths. Where you might hit the buffers is that

your energy levels may need to be fed by the promise of financial reward.

With some people in decidedly negative thinking mode, they might not be

speaking the words you need to hear.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Sagittarius

Personal theme: I see!!

Fire sign: November 22 — December 21

Over the next four weeks, the Sun in determined Taurus will inspire you

to get a handle on your daily tasks and chores. Put spring cleaning on the

schedule and get caught up on all the tasks that have been lingering on

your to-do list. It is also a good time to address matters that pertain to

health and fitness. Tweak your daily diet and exercise routines to fit your

current needs

By late evening there may be masses of information for you to absorb.

Someone already close may feel overwhelmed by what`s on offer and need

you to energise them. You may have news of your own though: most

especially concerning how best to move forward on plans that appear pie-

in-the-sky but are actually underpinned by the quest for knowledge. A

friend born under one of the Air signs (Gemini, Libra or Aquarius) could

play with one of your ideas and leave you, by the end of the day, keen to

be more involved.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Capricorn

Personal theme: I use!!

Earth & cardinal sign: December 22 — January 19

With the Sun in pleasure-loving Taurus over the next four weeks, it will be

all fun and games. Even if you are focused on work, you will find a

creative way to perform your tasks. Romance, artistic pursuits, and any

activities that entertain you will contribute to your happiness. This is also

a great time to bond with children, so be sure to include them in your

plans.

From a financial perspective it might seem as though you`re trapped.

Freedom could come through using marketing expertise: of which you

might think you have little. A close colleague or partner might have ideas

as to how you could lift your game. This could have as much to do with

targeting a select audience as it does in convincing you that your efforts

are valuable. Midst all this, a part-time job could be the subject of much

discussion.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Aquarius

Personal theme: I know!!

Air & fixed sign: January 20 — February 18

With the Sun in comfort-loving Taurus over the next four weeks, you will

want to spend more time at home. You might feel inspired to update your

decor and to make changes that will make your place more beautiful.

Whether you entertain friends and loved ones or make it a party of two,

you will want your space to be warm and inviting. This is a time to

celebrate the comforts of home.

You won`t be alone if you tune in to waves of discontentment or

disillusionment. You might even find you are attracting those who are in

that frame of mind. Yet it`s just as likely that you will attract a

craftsperson whose work has been undervalued and who really appreciates

the sincerity of your praise. Concern about the structure of a building and

possible movement (and the cost of shoring this up) could be the subject

of some discussion.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Pisces

Personal theme: I believe!!

Water sign: February 19 — March 20

With the Sun in comforting Taurus over the next four weeks, you will

crave a connection with the people around you. This means increased

calls, emails, and text messages, as well as spur-of-the-moment visits with

neighbours, relatives and friends. You may be drawn to projects that

involve writing, teaching, or public speaking. It`s just another way to get

your thoughts and ideas across to the world.

Others might perceive you as barking orders or simply not putting up

with anything less than satisfactory attention. By following through a

complaints procedure you might even be given a voucher. Best news could

come from someone who`s in a powerful position (but perhaps doesn`t

realise this) and the assistance they give you. It could be that this is

related to a health matter – or perhaps to general welfare. The point is

that you`re likely to be touched by their clear concern.

WOW! That’s lots of great info. Are you trying to plan your week? Wondering what the Planets have in store for you? Well, my Good Friend Tasha Halpert’s got it going on in the Planetary Info and what it all means. So, with no more delay… Take-It-Away-Tasha!

I was reading Email from the Digital Book Review Email List I belong to, and ran across what I believe to be the most well written BOOK REVIEW EVER! Even if you do not end up reading the book being REVIEWED, if you like a good piece of WRITING then this REVIEW will make your whole self sing!

I have never before ENJOYED READING something quite so much.

The way it came about was by READING list mail backward. (Replies First) I came upon a reply that got my curiosity going in such a way that I READ the ORIGINAL MESSAGE just to see what had gotten the ATTENTION of my FELLOW LISTER! I wasn’t disappointed. In fact, I’d skipped the REVIEW when it had come through. What a MISTAKE!!! So glad for my CURIOSITY!

I’m copying it just as it came to me. Leaving out personal info. I have permission to post. I hope you all will READ and ENJOY!!!

HAPPY READING!!!

From: DB-Review [mailto:db-review-bounces@db-review.net]

I enjoyed your review so much that I am going to download this book.  Or, perhaps it was the thought of a chocolate brownie and a cup of coffee that made the book sound good. Ha Anyway, I will read this book.  Thank you for the very entertaining review.

Subject: [Db-Review] A different whole town’s talking review

This is my Journey with, The whole town’s talking: a novel by Fannie Flagg. I was perusing the Bard site one day and I saw a new novel by one of my favorite authors, Fannie Flagg. I thought, Oh I really want to read this, so I downloaded it.  I settled down in my favorite chair with a glass of ice tea and a big double fudge brownie and pressed play on my player. Since I went blind, these recorded books have saved my sanity. I read over a hundred books a year. I think how lucky that I am that they are available to me for free. I marvel at how people did this in the past when the books were on long playing records. Then came an improvement, the books came on tape. The tapes must have seemed like a life saver to those who were used to having to change the records. The next improvement for those folks were to have the books recorded on CDs. That made life much better. But to read a large book you still had to stop and put in a new CD at the end of each segment. Now I can download a book from my computer and be listening to the story in about five minutes. Oh, how lucky am I, waiting until now to go blind.

So, there I was sitting in my chair with ice tea and a big brownie in my hand, I pressed play on the player ant then, OH My goodness the narration by Kimberly Farr, is just great! She has a different voice for each character. She has the accents down and everything. Her narration brought the people and the town in all of its color alive right there before my eyes in my living room. I Know that there are some who prefer a reading without the different voices and accents. For them a straight reading maybe, even a computerized voice, would be enough for them to enjoy a Fannie Flagg novel.  But not me, I really enjoy being able to visualize each character by the sound of their voice. I think that Kimberly Farr voiced each character just as Fannie Flagg had visualized them when she created them.

Mrs. Flagg’s writing style is so easy to read that one is soon pulled into her story.  Her huge imagination and humor adds flavor and humanizes each character as she tells her tale.  As this book opens 28-year-old Lordor Nordstrom has just found the place he was looking for to have a farm. The rolling hills, tall trees and the lush green grasses of Missouri remind him of his home in Sweden and are just what he has been looking for.  So, he stakes out a claim and begins to farm.  In time, other families start farms nearby. There soon is a little community of farmers who all become friends.

Lordor’s friends tell him, Lordor, you need to get married. You can’t run a farm alone. But there are no young women available and Lordor is not anxious to be married anyway. As time goes by his friends continue to tell Lordor that he should get married. Since there are no women around that Lordor could marry, they convince him to put an ad in the eastern newspaper and advertise for a bride.

In Sweden A mother holds her newborn baby in her arms and she smiles when she thinks I will name her, Katrina. She knows that because her parents are laborers, Katrina would have to grow up and become a laborer herself.  And she would have children who would grow up and themselves become laborers because when you are born in Sweden to a laborer you will be a laborer. In Sweden, there is no way to escape the class system.  But Katrina’s mother wants more than that for her daughter. She will find a way. Then she finds a new thing that will get Katrina free, it is called, America. She will see that Katrina will get to go to America.

At the age of 18 Katrina finds herself on a ship heading for, America.  Katrina is lonely and afraid, she has never been away from home before. But she can’t help being excited about going to America.

Once in America Katrina makes her way to Chicago.  She has found a job in one of the rich homes working as a maid.  Katrina is not really happy in the big city with its noise of horses and wagon wheels all through the day and night. But as her luck would have it she meets a girl named Anne Lee and makes a friend. Her friend loves Chicago. On their days off Anne Le drags Katrina all over the city visiting parks, museums and dance halls. Anne Lee loves the city life and she especially loves the young men there.  But Katrina is still not happy in the city.  One day while cleaning the house Katrina picks up a newspaper and she notices an ad in the paper in which someone is looking for a mail order bride.  She stuffs the ad in her pocket and their it stayed for a few days. Finally, she decides to answer the ad. She doesn’t really expect anything to come of it.  But eventually a letter comes in the mail it is from a farmer named, Lordor Nordstrom. Lordor owns a farm in Missouri and he invites her to come to Missouri. After exchanging a number of letters with, Lordor she decides to take a chance and travel to Missouri and meet, Lordor Nordstrom. At the railroad station Katerina meets Lordor for the first time. He is a handsome man tall and friendly looking. But he seems Tung tied and doesn’t say anything. He just removes his hat and escorts them to the wagon which will take them to the farm. The farm is more than Katrina had dared to dream of. After visiting for a few weeks while staying with some of Lordor’s friends. Katrina and Lordor find that they are in love with each other. They get married and start a family.

Meanwhile the people of the area decide that they are a large enough community to become a town. They lay out the limits of the town and they name the town, Elmwood Springs and They select Lordor Nordstrom as the town’s first mayor.

Now I have not included any spoilers here. When you are reading, you know that Katrina and Lordor will fall in love and get married. Else what would this book be about? It is Fannie Flagg’s delightful and wild imagination and her great storytelling ability that keeps us reading and turning the pages wondering what will happen next.  So, it is about here, as I was reading the story that I begin to think that things are going just too good. Something bad has to happen. Authors always have to have a crisis for the protagonist to overcome.

And it does happen, Lordor died. Sad, isn’t it? But wait, up in the Still Meadows cemetery at the top of the hill overlooking the town, Lordor is their watching from his grave the town and all of the people as they go about living their lives.  In time Katrina joins Lordor in the cemetery. They are glad to be together again and be able to watch all of their family and friends as they go on living their day to day lives.

So there they are watching the town grow from their spot up in the cemetery Oh, wait, I’ve seen this before! It’s “Our Town!” I love that play. I’ve seen it twice on TB with different actors each time, and I have seen it at the theater. Every time I see it I am pulled into the story and their town. The story of their town is told by people in the town’s cemetery. Have you seen the play? If you haven’t seen it or even if you have I would suggest that you go to Bard to download the play. Then get a glass of wine and sit down with a nibble of cheese. Press the play button and Imagine that the lights are dimming and the Curtin is opening and there you are in the town. It’s a great night at the theater right there in your own comfortable chair at home. How wonderful these recorded books are.

Back to “The Whole Town’s Talking”, As the years go by, Katrina and Lordor are joined in the cemetery by their friends and eventually even some of their descendants. All of this time they are watching the town of Elmwood Springs grow and prosper. The town is, at first, like a baby and they watch it grow and grow into its teenage years. Then the town becomes like a man in his most productive years, stable and prospering as the decades go by and more and more people come to join them in the cemetery, they watch as the town seems to get old and decline. And then like an old man it slowly dies.

Now you must read the afterword. My wife, just loved, the afterword. It is really Fannie Flagg at her most creative and wonderful.

So now if you are still reading, I want to thank you for your perseverance. But maybe you would like a real review of this book. OK, here is a link for you: http://thebookishlibra.com/2016/12/15/review-whole-towns-talking-fannie-flagg/

LeDon,

Inside every old man is a young man saying, what the hell happened?

LeDon

Patty back to say, thank you and thank you! Not only did I TREMENDOUSLY ENJOY!!! This REVIEW!!! But NOW thanks to you, I am going to READ the BOOK!!! Anything that can INSPIRE such a  REVIEW as that has to be GOOD!!! I’ll be sure and let you and all know what I think, but in NO WAY can I ever CREATE a piece of WRITING such as this here…

Blessid Be.

Guys, if that’s not the best dog gone Book Review written, I don’t know where you’ll find one! Have you Read, or maybe you’ve Written an Awesome Amazing Review like this? Send it to me, and I’ll put it in the next installment of What’s Up? Woden’s Day!!!

You Know? This could be the Highlight of the Week! Well, at least mine…

Sure is busy out today. Lots of Traffic. Cars, Trucks, and Busses, Moving On… Takes me back to a time not so long ago. When was that? You ask. Well, let me grab another cup of coffee, and I’ll tell you the tale.

This comes from an Excerpt of my Upcoming Book. The Raw Truth: Campbell’s Rambles Book Two.

From Chapter 1 Solstice, and the Slow Awakening.

If you’ve ever wondered what it was like here in the Campbell Kingdom, the following offering will bring you here like nothing I’ve written before. If it doesn’t get your Reading Juices Flowing… Please? Write me and let me know. I’ll need a rewrite!

The city woke around me, as I sat having my first hot strong, and   life giving cup of coffee.   as usual I heard the comforting sounds of it coming to life. For me, it was like listening to a large loving family coming slowly alive after a long deep peaceful slumber.

If you listened very carefully early in the morning you’d always hear the distant sounds of the busy factory not far away. The echoing train whistle seemed    ever present always announcing the coming and going of trains. Although they were only freight I would when the weather was warm sit on the porch swing with my early morning coffee and smoke and imagine where the trains were going and sometimes I wished I were on them. Riding along just going where ever the rails took me, without so much as a care, or look back.

Just me and my ever-faithful dog and a knapsack on my back going off to see the world.

Every morning it was the same.  a never ending steady stream of 

Cars, trucks, and busses going to and FRO.  taking people to work, school, or anywhere else they might need or want to go.

WOW! Never really thought of it, but it’s kinda like that every day here. Maybe that’s one more reason I hang out this time of day. How do you spend your Morning? If Morning isn’t one of your more joyful times of day, what is? Drop me a line, and let me know When your Favorite time of day is, and What you Do to Enjoy it. If you’re OK with it, I’ll share it with our Readers here. Always interested in others, and what makes them tick.

Happy Easter

Posted on April 16, 2017 by Patty

HELLO!  HAPPY EASTER!

Not only is today EASTER it is GOOD NEWS SUNDAY! As well! How about that? Two Celebration Days in one! Yes…Yes… I know! We celebrate GOOD NEWS SUNDAY! Each week. That is OK! Having a DOUBLE CELEBRATION is fun!

Now, as I’ve written previously, I’m sick today. I cannot be out and about. I, however, have decided that I need not let this Spoil My Day! While I do not observe this Holiday for all the same reasons as do the Christians, I do Know, and Believe that Jesus Lived, and Died upon this Earth. His teachings have Served me. Well over the years of my life. This time of year, means many things to me. Two of the most important things are…

            Giving and Receiving FORGIVENESS

            RENEWAL and LOVE

Although my Physical Self is feeling sick, and rundown, my Spiritual Self and Attitude, are FABULOUS! So, I have decided to spend part of this day sharing happy memories from this time period. They won’t all be about EASTER but they will center around Spring, and the things I have mentioned this time of year means to me. I hope you enjoy! Some I’ve shared before. Some have never been seen. All are filled with HAPPINESS LOVE and at times FORGIVENESS.

Read, Learn, Grow, and BLESSID BE!

Here is one of many!

The Mysterious Package and the Blue Bunny

By

Patty L Fletcher

It was a bright beautiful warm spring day. King Campbell my Seeing Eye Guide Dog and I were coming home from a long day at the office. I was more than sick of being cooped up inside all day, and being sure he was as well I decided to have the bus driver drop us off a few blocks from the house so we could walk the rest of the way home.

As the bus pulled away Campbell and I stood for a moment just enjoying the sun on our faces and the wind in our hair before walking the few remaining blocks to the house.

Once we were there I let him relieve himself and we headed for the stairs leading up to our apartment.

As we reached the top step I noted a package with my left foot. “Hmmm? Campbell?  Wonder what this is?” I picked it up and started inside with it. I noticed that there was an address label on it, and so decided I would run it next door to the neighbor’s house to see who it was from.

It was nearly Easter so I figured it must be a gift from a friend.

First, we ran inside so I could change from my work clothes in to something much more comfortable and King Campbell could get some water.

Once changed and refreshed with a drink for both of us we were off again.

As I slipped Campbell back in to his harness I said, “OK boy let’s go see what this package is.” As if in agreement he gave out a wiggly waggly jingly jangly shake. I laughed, “Oh my sweet King Campbell Lee you’re a hoot.”

We walked easily with one another and were soon next door chatting with my now EX Fiancé Donnie and he told me that there was no return address on the package. Finally, I could stand it no longer. I had to know what it was.  The package felt as if it had something soft inside. It was not big enough for it to be clothing and my curiosity was simply getting the better of me.

I took the package back from him and said, “You want to see what’s in here?” He laughed, “Well of course. You don’t get to come over get my curiosity all stirred up and then go home.” So, I ripped open the package and inside was a soft stuffed blue bunny. Just as I started to say something about someone playing Secret Easter Bunny Campbell jumped up and snagged the bunny from my hands. “Campbell!  Give that back!” I scolded, but to no avail. For the next couple of days, it was like a war. Every time I turned around he would snatch Blue Bunny off my bed and go roaring through the house shaking it back and forth at top speed.

 It was as if he believed that bunny had been for him. I was beginning to think it might very well have been what with the way he was acting and so after a while gave in and let him have it.

We never did find out where that package came from and so to this day I have no idea where the blue bunny came from. Who knows? Maybe there truly is an Easter bunny.

Thanks for reading. This ends What’s Up? Woden’s Day!!!
