Some fun facts from a fun kid

I saw this clip of this little girl discussing what she knows about outer space and I thought it was sweet (and informative). For anyone interested in outer space see this video. Happy Thursday to everyone!

Dogs are great listeners

"No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as the dog does."-Christopher Morley

I love dogs, not just because they can be great listeners but also because they're lovable. I love and miss my family's dog who now lives with my parents in Michigan. My parents have a border collie that, in the absence of sheep, the dog herds cars and people instead. If you drive to my parents house he will stand in front of your car and make it move the way he wants your car to move since he knows you don't want to hit him. I also remember him being rather protective of my family. Although he wouldn't hurt anyone really, he would bark like a huge attack dog if someone he didn't know, especially a man he didn't know came to our house. However, as long as you are willing to throw a Frisbee or ball for him, he'll be your friend forever.  Plus he is a good listener. Sometimes I'd wonder what he might say if he could really talk. Then again it's always nice to have someone to listen to you, even if they can't talk back, it's comforting to know you're not alone and that you're loved.  So those are the things I love best about dogs (or at least my parent's dog).

A memory with my dad

Since it's Father's Day I thought I'd share a memory that I have with my dad.

One day shortly after my sister was born and had come home from the hospital with my mum I remember because up to that point I'd been an only child, it was a bit of an adjustment. I remember my dad taking me aside and saying "Now Margaret, I don't want you to worry, you'll always be my special friend." To this day it's always been a great comfort to me that  I love my parents and that my dad (and mum) love me and my siblings. In that sense I kind of see every day as Father's Day and Mother's Day because I know that they're always there for me and my siblings and I'm forever grateful for that.

The power of a bus pass

I really like (and rely on) public transportation so I thought this joke was pretty funny. I wish everyone a very happy Saturday! 

One day, Dave, the bus driver, was in his bus when the biggest man he had ever seen got on. The giant looked at the driver and growled, 'Big Eric doesn't pay' , and took his seat.
Dave was only a little man and he didn't really want to argue.
This happened for several days. After a week, Dave was beginning to get a little angry. Everybody else paid, so why not the big man?
So Dave went to the gym and started a course of body-building. He didn't want to be frightened of Big Eric any longer.
Eight weeks later the driver had strong muscles and was feeling very fit.
At the usual stop, Big Eric got on. 'Big Eric doesn't pay' , he barked; but this time Dave was prepared for him. He stood up, shaking slightly, and said between clenched teeth, 'Oh, yeah? And why doesn't Big Eric pay?'
'Because Big Eric has got a bus pass', the man replied.

Home is the place where they take you in

"Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in."-Robert Frost

The nicest thing about home and my family for me is the fact that no matter what's happening in my life I know that I have somewhere to call home. I think that I've been lucky in that I've always been loved. If I could give one gift to everyone I'd give them lots of people to love them.  As it stands I wish everyone much love now and always.
Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.
