The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get that time back, and I may need it for something at some point in time. Wait! What?

What do you wish was your buddy? I saw a park there and a lake and perhaps someone fishing?

..or make like Dr. Doolittle.

You are not a smiler.. like I - better to capture the mood at that time, than to capture an enforced smile or God-awful grin.. whoever thought that that was the way forward in photography? :lol:

I like old photos where people are dead stern. That speaks to me.


Maybe I will get a cat someday, or even a dog. Right now I have my hands full with my tomato plants.

It is nice to know that I make you laugh - lol. It looked to be more of a man-made lake to me. We have one in a beautiful park a few towns away. Beautiful lake. But what of the *buddy*?

..and how are they coming along? I have room to grow herbs, but nothing bigger, and certainly not anything that would warrant constant care.. my own self-care being a constant work in progress - I might grow things with pretty flowers.. courgettes etc, as they wouldn't look amiss inbetween the shrubs or growing in a retro tin trough.. and maybe some peas. :-k

Why?
I like old photos too which go waaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy back. It almost seems to be a bit like time traveling. If only we could...

Maybe I will get a cat someday, or even a dog. Right now I have my hands full with my tomato plants.


What you need to do then is learn to multi-task. Pets and tomato plants are not at odds.
Perhaps in your travels, keep a look out, you may come upon a poor abandoned cat or kitten like I did. Take him or her in after having first dropped him or her lol at the vet for a spin.

He/she is out there waiting for you. If you choose to see it as your destiny, well, that is just fine. If not, make the poor thing your destiny. This is how it is done anyway.
