Monday Window – April 26, 2021

thanks to Ludwig for hosting Monday Window https://mondaywindow.wordpress.com/2021/04/26/monday-window-april-26-2021/

From earlier posts you’ve probably noticed that my husband and I made a trip to Grimsby Beach last week and came across a village of very brightly painted homes. In this post I’ve concentrated on the windows. On Thursday I’ll post in Thursday Doors to feature the doors.

Sunday Stills – Celebrating National Pets and Kids Day

….not sure if this is strictly an American thing but thanks to Terri Webster Schrandt for hosting Sunday Stills https://secondwindleisure.com/2021/04/25/sunday-stills-celebrating-pets-and-kids/

After doing a little research I did discover that today, April 26th is recognized as National Pets and Kids Day in the U.S. It is intended to raise awareness of the importance of picking the right pet for children at the right time. It’s an important decision that can lead to a lifetime of bonding between pet and child.

We have been pet owners for over 30 years. Our first pet, other than gold fish, was a golden retriever followed by a second golden. They were great dogs to have around children. When the kids grew up we adopted a mutt who instantly became my husband’s dog. Our daughters both became dog owners when they set up their own homes and our son who has moved about Europe for the last 15 years is sans a pet.
