August 20--The Best Decorations

The ornament of a house is the friends who frequent it.  --Ralph Waldo Emerson

    We adopted our dog Barney just before the pandemic and lockdown hit. We went for almost a year with no one else in our house other than my husband, me and Barney. When our first guests arrived in 2021, Barney went nuts, it being his job to protect us and the house. He does calm down eventually; he's learning. But he takes his role very seriously. 
    Being way out here in Kansas, with our families in the St. Louis area, Ohio and Pennsylvania, we seldom get a family visit, but we do have many friends in the area. Living in Wichita for nearly 40 years has given us a blessed variety of folks to "ornament" our house, and I love it when friends and neighbors decide to stop by. 
    Lovin' life,
Barney at his "station"
