Spring Green and Easter Blessings

While at my sister's home last weekend dog-sitting Gleason
...the longest dog in the world,

 I spied this wonderful green enamel bucket in the laundry room.
  Mr. Flea took Gleason outside for a romp
 and I took Green Bucket out for a photo shoot.
Isn't she pretty?

Mr. Flea's parents, my wonderful in-laws, are celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary tonight!
At ages 89 and 91 they are still devoted to each other.

 Wishing you all a Happy Easter!
...and a wonderful weekend.

Nice job on the photo shoot. I have not been able to take decent pictures for a while now - to many gray, dreary days. :(
Have a wonderful weekend.

She is very pretty (Green Bucket, that is). I want to see Gleason but I bet he will not sit still when given a choice between walk and photo.

Sixty-five years of marriage - how wonderful! My parents will be celebrating their 56th anniversary this August. And I just met a dear couple, a few weeks ago, who were on their way to the beach to celebrate their 72nd wedding anniversary! Praise the Lord for lifetime commitments!
