Sunday evening at the Lair

It's a brisk Sunday evening. Dusk outside. Temperatures are dropping like Obama's poll numbers, but me and Murphy are doing just fine. The stove's lit for the first time this year and I'm on the couch, reading my newest H. Rider Haggard acquisition with a mug of steaming hot tea. And Murphy? He's simply enjoying the stove, just like Lagniappe used to.

Funny how new things can stir old memories and automatically bring a smile.

All y'all have a nice night.

  1. My heart did a little jump when I saw the photo. From the little eebook, I thought it was Lagniappe. Good memories of that dog, and now we all have good times with this one.

    Enjoy the book and the tea, I'm up to my eyeballs in homemade cookies and lefse.

  2. Good for y'all, and hopefully he learns the 'proper' distance from the stove... :-)
