The Pruning


Posted By on Aug 18, 2020

Last year we also had so much rain in August and September that our yard was so lush and green. Then Ezra came in like a Velociraptor pruning the entire lower natural yard, as well as forcing us to do some major pruning in our upper yard, adding fence borders everywhere so he couldn’t destroy this more cultured (if you can call it that now lol) yard too! At least it was cultured and pretty BEFORE Ezra, EEK! The thing is, we...

Do you remember that song from the 70s, Trip a Little Light Fantastic? If not I’ll share it with you here now. So the title of this blog post is really a play on words because we’ve been invited to trip a LOT of dark fantastic in the last several months. First a PLANdemic, then riots, etc., etc. And yet for years (since 2005 when I actually tripped into learning all of this – well God pushed me a bit…okay a lot...

Now he is currently raising funds for his Long Living Pets Research, Rescue and Rehab Center. His...

Essentially, it is part of a circuit that links the neck, heart,...

I thought I’d simply share some FB posts I’ve done on Ezra over the last few months. He has grown and as a result so have I. He has never let me or my husband remain in a comfort zone, just chillaxin and living a simple, easy life. He is actually why I was prepared for such a time as this. This first one I was having a conversation with King, and using his reactions to Ezra lol – and honestly that is exactly his...
