Soaring High

Toby flies in the night sky.

Soaring high

among the stars

Look at the road.

There are no cars.

People locked

in prison homes,

turning soft while

nations grow.

What happens next?

I hate to see.

You’d better learn

to speak Chinese.

Toby innocently stands there, wondering what mommy is looking at.

Actually, I can’t wait to get sick and croak so I never have to hear the word “covid” again.  Aaaagh!!!  (Me?  Overloaded?  Nah…)

All that money you were going to spend dining out this weekend (but now the restaurants are closed again) you can spend on a happy pet portrait!

Oil painting of Westie puppy.

Bring some joy into your home during this time with a picture of your best friend!

  1. JUSE SO TOU KNOW YOUNG TOBY

    SIRIUS IS KNOWN COLLOQUIALLY AS THE “DOG STAR”, REFLECTING ITS PROMINENCE IN ITS CONSTELLATION, CANIS MAJOR (THE GREATER DOG).[18] THE HELIACAL RISING OF SIRIUS MARKED THE FLOODING OF THE NILE IN ANCIENT EGYPT AND THE “DOG DAYS” OF SUMMER FOR THE ANCIENT GREEKS, WHILE TO THE POLYNESIANS, MOSTLY IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE, THE STAR MARKED WINTER AND WAS AN IMPORTANT REFERENCE FOR THEIR NAVIGATION AROUND THE PACIFIC OCEAN.

    ALSO… THE CONSTELtION OF ORION fTHE HUNTER.. TO HIS LEFT AS WE SEE HIM… ARE HIS HUNTING DOS.. CANNIS MAJOR ND MINOR… AND THEY CHAS LUPUS THE HARE

    CANIS MAJOR CONTAINS SIRIUS, THE BRIGHTEST STAR IN THE NIGHT SKY, KNOWN AS THE “DOG STAR”. IT IS BRIGHT BECAUSE OF ITS PROXIMITY TO THE SOLAR SYSTEM. IN CONTRAST, THE OTHER BRIGHT STARS OF THE CONSTELLATION ARE STARS OF GREAT DISTANCE AND HIGH LUMINOSITY. AT MAGNITUDE 1.5, EPSILON CANIS MAJORIS

    (ADHARA) IS THE SECOND-BRIGHTEST STAR OF THE CONSTELLATION AND THE BRIGHTEST SOURCE OF EXTREME ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION IN THE NIGHT SKY. NEXT IN BRIGHTNESS ARE THE YELLOW-WHITE SUPERGIANT DELTA (WEZEN) AT 1.8, THE BLUE-WHITE GIANT BETA (MIRZAM) AT 2.0, BLUE-WHITE SUPERGIANTS ETA (ALUDRA) AT 2.4 AND OMICRON2 AT 3.0, AND WHITE SPECTROSCOPIC BINARY ZETA (FURUD), ALSO AT 3.0. THE RED HYPERGIANT VY CANIS MAJORIS IS ONE OF THE LARGEST STARS KNOWN, WHILE THE NEUTRON STAR RX J0720.4-3125 HAS A RADIUS OF A MERE 5 KM..

  2. You already know character chinese

    So you will be able to greet our new overlords~

    I will not greet them so heartily though

    They eat dogs dontcha’ know!

    …a poem by Anonymous-mouse…

    (Seriously they even boil them alive in a giant wok. The belief is the pain and suffering make the meat more tender. Videos are horrifying. Any further of my comments/opinions aren’t suitable for a G-rated blog.)

    • I can’t watch! I can’t watch! I prefer the school of thought that the happier the animal is, the better it tastes. Some go to great lengths to make sure their livestock feel no fear or pain.

      Toby is now feeling very, very inspired to defend his country if/when the inevitable happens.
