Echo's Bark Mitzvah

Happy 13th Barkday, Echo!

Today You Are a Dog! (because it's your Bark Mitzvah)

But you'll always be a puppy

because you believe you're a puppy.

Maybe even Superdog!

You can get it here:

Just buy it, okay?

Don't make me beg.

Owl, Owl!

Yah for March!

It's a new month, so instead of "Rabit! Rabbit!" I'll say, "Owl! Owl!"

Hope you had a good Valentine's Day, with lots of chocolate, or whatever you like best.

What happened to February, you might ask?

I got away from this:

meaning, the weather, not Echo, although we did leave him behind
and saw lots of this:

birds of paradise at our hotel's garden

Our room's patio overlooked a marina.

We went here:

Seaport Village

We even had lunch (coffee and an apple) at Upstart Crow on Valentine's Day when the other places were busy. Then I wrote at my favourite inside table while M. browsed at books.
 Unfortunately, I missed out on an anticipated meeting with an online writing friend. Another one! :-(
