Best Friend

“The righteous care for the needs of their animals, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.”
Proverbs 12:10 (NIV)

Someone glued angel wings onto the back of this dog figurine before placing it at the grave of their loved one. I liked the way this particular token of remembrance provides a glimpse of the character of the person at rest here. I couldn’t help but find significance in the dog’s upward gaze toward the heavens. I look that direction a lot, too.

Kalanchoe, Corrected

Don’t you hate it when you learn you’ve been wrong about something most of your life? I got my first kalanchoe (ka-lan-cho) as a teenager many, many years ago. We got this one 3 or 4 years ago in Utah. Today, I discovered via the Internet that it’s not a ka-lan-cho at all, but a ka-lan-ko-ee. You’d think my closest friend of 37 years — an expert horticulturist — would have corrected my pronunciation. Knowing him, though, he just enjoyed my folly and laughed about it silently on the inside when I erred. I hate that, too.

Enjoy the photo!
