    It is not only what we do, but also what we do not do, for which we are accountable.

    Life is an error-making and an error-correcting process, and nature in marking man's papers will grade him for wisdom as measured both by survival and by the quality of life of those who survive.

    I probably should never have been there anyway, and it served me right when the two alert police officers fired up their siren, pulled me over, and pointed out that my car's registration had expired. I had not realized this, and as you can imagine I felt like quite the renegade outlaw as one of the officers painstakingly wrote out my ticket, standing well to the side of the road so as to avoid getting hit by the steady stream of passing unlicensed and uninsured motorists driving their stolen cars with their left hands so that their right hands would be free to keep their pit bulls from spilling their cocaine all over their machine guns. Not that I am bitter.

    Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.
    Abraham Lincoln

    From the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire, let freedom ring. From the mighty mountains of New York, let freedom ring. From the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania, let freedom ring. But not only that: Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi."
    -- Martin Luther King Jr.


    Today is June Teenth. For more information on this holiday read here and here. Information on the Emancipation Proclamation is found here.

    Hanging is too good for a man who makes puns;
    he should be drawn and quoted.
    - Fred Allen


    4dk - who apologizes for not remembering that June 19th is also Father's Day 2005. (Happens when one's parents and in laws are no longer with us.)
    I usually get something for hubbylove from the furfoots for Father's Day but this year with a new dog, two dogs on heavy medication and one being rushed to the Emergency Clinic last night, well it kinda slipped my mind.

    So here's my tribute to Fathers:

    When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.
    -- Mark Twain

    Hope is the thing with feathers -- that perches in the soul -- and sings the tune without words -- and never stops, at all.

    My husband and I are either going to buy a dog or have a child. We can't decide whether to ruin our carpets or ruin our lives.

    We aren’t house-proud. If we were, we wouldn’t abide the scratches on the door frame, the holes in the screen, the darkened shine on worn spots on the chair. We would wince at the mottled carpet and fret at the hair clinging to our clothes. We don’t. If anything, we lovers of dogs are a tolerant lot, finding greater value in the unabashed affection of our friend than immaculate sofas. Shoes can be replaced, but heroic retrievers are timeless. They wake us, greet us, protect us, and ultimately carve a place in our hearts.
    - Paul Fersen

    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
    ~ unknown

    Today is Take Your Dog To Work Day. To find out more, click here.

    4dk - who, in a former life, worked for a company who didn't let us celebrate this day but the security guards would let us sneak in our fur foots on Saturdays or if we were called in late at night. When it came time to celebrate 'Bring Your Children To Work Day", I always took a personal day. Love me - love my dog(s)

    Alice laughed. 'There's no use trying,' she said. 'One can't believe impossible things.' 'I daresay you haven't had much practice,' said the Queen. 'When I was your age, I always did it half an hour a day. Why, sometimes, I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'"

    We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason if we ... remember that we are not descended from fearful men, not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate and to defend causes which were, for the moment, unpopular.
