Aww…some Monday’s Music Moves Me

Aww…some Monday

After twelve years without a pet in the house, we brought Lucy home in March 2017 and life has never been the same. She was 10 weeks old and weighed about 5lbs. Lucy was born December 24, 2016, Here is her baby picture.

Yes, she was a little pup, probably the smallest in her litter. She was the last one taken, but definitely proof that sometimes the best things come in small packages. That is my computer keyboard she is laying next to on my desk.

Not long after we brought Lucy home we went shopping for a few things. My wife just couldn’t resist trying a few hats on Lucy and Lucy was not thrilled with the idea.

Lucy is an American Cocker Spaniel. Originally there were three types of hunting dogs, pointers, flushers, and retrievers. Spaniels generally fall into the flusher category. They were bred to flush woodcocks (Cocker), quail, and other game birds that hide in the grass and under brush. Even as a pup, shown here at about three months, Lucy has always enjoyed a game of fetch.

Who said, “Dogs don’t smile”? This looks like a smile to me!

Like I said in my last post, this may be a year filled with photographic retrospect. I have spent a lot of time photographing trees, flowers, birds, sports and hot rods, but I do have an archive of family and pet photos that you have probably not seen and I have not viewed since I captured the images. All of the above images were taken before Lucy was nine months old so you will most likely see her featured again and again. Have a blessed week.

Monday’s Music Moves Me

The theme this week is Time. Song lyrics or titles mentioning time, or calendars, or days of the week. Kudos to Alana for offering the first music prompt for the new year! As a teen of the sixties I was exposed to some the the greatest rock music ever recorded. We had the Beatles, Led Zepplin, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Eagles, The Who, Greatful Dead, Rolling Stones, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Eric Clapton (Cream), Since the theme this week is time, the question is, “What about No Time”?

What would you do if you could capture time in a bottle?

Soo…what are you doing Tuesday afternoon?

I gotta put this post to bed, ’cause in getting late in the evening.

Hope last week was a good start to the new year for you. Have a blessed Monday!

  1. I think we all think about putting time in a bottle. It sounds nice if we could do that but it’s not possible in this life. One day in heaven that’s what it’ll be like time in a bottle, never ending and happy always. I loved your song picks! Have a boogietastic week!


  2. Awww on Miss Lucy. What a cute pup she was and a most beautiful full grown baby now. They bring us such joy.

    Love your playlist. Well done.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. 🙂


    1. Her markings got better with age. She has black freckles in the white fur between the large black patches. She has beautiful markings and I have not been able to adequately capture them with my camera.

  3. Lucy is precious, you are welcome to walk down memory lane and share here, i’ll always enjoy walking with you on that.

    Do any of your grandchildren have friends with younger siblings still in school who are involved with sports? I’m sure they remember your fabulous photography, maybe some of their parents might want to hire you to capture shots of their kids on the field.

    The music of that time was magical, wasn’t it.


    1. I still know a few parents and grandparents at church with children in sports, so I can still manage a few photo opportunities through them. And yes, we had the best music ever!


  4. Lucy is a beautiful dog and I don’t think you can post too many pictures of her. Enjoyed all your selections. I didn’t use Time in a Bottle because it makes me tear up. I so enjoyed the live performance of Late in the Evening, too. Alana ramblinwitham


    1. I used Late in the Evening because my wife and I just recently viewed a tribute to Paul Simon and he closed the show with that song.
      Yes, I can always count on Lucy to give me a photo I can use.
