Another Friday with Randomness


It’s hard to believe another Friday is here — so that mean’s it’s Friday Five time again over at Revgalblogpals.  Here’s today’s questions and ponderrings:

 Hello gals and pals,
It’s the second Friday of the month, and you know what that is~~~Random Friday Five! Have fun, and enjoy! (as always, let us know that you played in the comments–whether you play in the comments, link to your blog, or on Facebook!)

1. How do you sign off in your emails, professional and personally? For example, you say “Blessings”,
“Take Care”, “Remember, the Devil is watching you” (o.k. just kidding on that one.) Let us know and why…

2. If you were an animal TODAY, what is it and why?

3. If you get snarky, what triggers it? If you don’t get snarky, please, what is the secret?

4. Look up from your computer/tablet/phone screen. What is the first favorite thing your eyes land on. Describe it. (For example, I just did this, and my eyes landed on a little angel made out of multicolored wires whose head and wings are quite askew because of being chewed upon by my puppy. That aside, I love it because it was a gift from two little girls who came often to my office in my last call to play with all the tshotke on my table. They wanted to add to it.)

5. Do you have a favorite pair of socks? Tell us about them!


1.  Depends on the content and audience of my emails — for church stuff I almost always use Blessings, Pastor Kelly, for friends it might be blessings, might be love followed by Kelly or simply K.  I also have a signature line for my professional it has job title and contact info for my very personal account there is a knitting quote.

2.  I think my animal choice for today would be a dog because I could get lots of snuggles and yet if at a dog park — I’d be able to run free.  Both of which describe my complex being today.

3.  If I get snarky it should be worded for me — when I get snarky — mostly when I’m exhausted physically, emotionally and spiritually exhausted.   But it can happen easily if my fibro is flaring and I’m full of pain and someone says something without thinking.

4.  Owls — I love owls and sheep and owls tend to decorate my bedroom so I have some clings on my walls and a knitted owl on my dresser.

5.  My favorite socks are the ones I knit but my really favorite are the ones I knit for Dear Husband, littleman and I — yup we all have matching socks.

Friday Five: Dogs or Cats or What?

my experience in the United States, people are either “Dog People” or “Cat People.” As the graph above illustrates, not everyone is limited to those types of animals. So I am wondering about pets and experiences with them.

1. Are you a DOG or a CAT person? Or OTHER?
 I’m defiantly a dog person.
2. Who were the pets of your childhood and what were they like?
I only remember having one dog.  And sadly we didn’t have him for long.
3. What pets do you have now?
Currently residing in our home we have 2 Goldfish and 1 dog.
4. Have you ever had any unusual pets in your household or visit your home?
 Hmm, can’t say I’ve ever had any unusual pets in my home but I had a church member in one church that we served that had an alligator named Bill.  
5. What have you learned from your pets? Give one recent example, if possible.
What seems like unconditional love.  Our last dog was an awesome companion on days when I was bed ridden.  He would curl right up next to me and bed and lay there happy as can be until I decided to stir.  I’m sure in time our current dog will also be a good nap-time dog.  He’s just got a little bit to much puppy still in him.  
In the almost 16 years of marriage we’ve had 3 dogs and all have taken on names of important historical Moravians.  First came, David Nitschmann (we called him David) a Jack Russell who had some genetic joint issues and suffered from severe separation anxiety.   Then came Leonard Dober (we called him Dober) a mixed breed that we rescued from a shelter in Maryland.  He was the constant companion of mine and sadly he died less than a month after we moved back to NC.  Now Jan Amos Comenius (we call him Amos) fills our home with love and joy.  He is also a shelter rescue and has become best friends with our Littleman.  
BONUS: Pictures or anything else related to animals you love.
We knew that once Dober died we wouldn’t be without a dog for long, as our Littleman LOVES animals.  When he was about 4 he asked us how to write “I Take Care of Pets.”  We told him, not thinking much of it until we heard him at the patio door, where he had taken the sign and placed it in the backyard.  He was convinced that the neighborhood cats that were often running through the yard would see the sign and come into our house.  It’s one of my favorite things to do is sit in the house and watch the two of them playing together in the back yard.  There’s a lot of truth in the saying “A Boy and His Dog”!
So below are a few pictures of Dober and Amos….Sadly the pictures we have of David were prior to digital cameras so I’ll have to dig one of those out sometime.
This is Littleman And Dober.
