I'm past 60 where life seems a little quieter, more patient, less demanding, less contentious. Folks long gone are more remembered; childhood is more missed, youth is forgiven. With the grey hair, that I'm still vain enough to dye, has come the understanding that life isn't forever and if I have something left to do, I better get with it.
I think, I need to mention my pup is a boy (so Janis might want to rethink her entry). Also, I better limit the number of entries per person to 2. And again the deadline is September 15th, 2010. The prize is an original unframed drawing of one of winners own animals to be done by me (from a photo the winner will email to me).
