A Few Recent Visitors
|Sarah (back) & Lucy (front)|
When she wants to, Sadie can sit in a chair and still have her front feet on the ground, which makes for a very droll sight. I think she is definitely the tallest dog who has ever visited us on Waukazoo Street.
Not all Dog Ears Books visitors are dogs, but most of the humans don’t have their pictures taken. Bill Coohon of Northport was an exception. He let me photograph him, and he even gave me permission to put pictures of him on the blog, after I told him that his M-201 cap would be good advertising for his wife (my friend) Sally's shop, Dolls and More (at 102 Nagonaba Street in Northport).
|Telling a story|
Bill, please don't be offended at sharing the bill with canines! Bill's face is at least as expressive as Lucy's and Sarah's and Sadie's, don't you think? He also talks with his hands in ways they can't--and as he pointed out, none of that facial or gesture expression comes through in e-mail. I think in the second photo he was telling of being out on his sailboat in Grand Traverse Bay during an electrical storm.

We Welcome Signs of Spring
Before the Big Storm, daffodils underneath the big silver maple at home had begun to push through leaf litter and into the light. They survived being buried by over two feet of snow and are back on track—onward and upward—a cheery sight!
