I like Thursday...

I'm interested in what people like.  I think it is fun (and inspiring) discovering what makes people happy.  This week I am happy with:

Scout and Greta
Greta is my Mom's poodle and Scout was initially terrified of her.  But they have learned to be best pals and now Scout howls at the front door to go over and see here.  They play and play and then both are worn out (always a good thing).  

The thing is that play they do is specific "poodle play."  Some of the dogs Scout sees just don't understand what she is doing but Greta knew right away and once they became pals, it was playtime palooza.

Hide and seek
Dancing poodles...

 It's not as it looks.  This is an elaborate game and I have to give kudos to Greta who never hurts little Scout.  The "Mama" role in these games seems to suit Greta and they both are smiling everytime they take a break.

I like a thing our guild does.  We have a "free table" and I really like to peruse for old magazines and occasionally find fabric I can use.  This past week I found some interesting pieces of fabric:

We've taken to watching "America's Got Talent" because there is absolutely nothing on tv these days.  If you haven't seen Many Harvey's performance, you should.  Made me cry like a baby.  You can see it here.

I REALLY REALLY REALLY like Sunshine and this morning (for the first time in a long time), it was sunny when we woke up.  

Here's what blooming in the garden:

I hope you have a wonderful day of likes and happiness.  Be sure to stop by LeeAnna's at Not Afraid of Color to visit for more fun likes!

Those poodles-in-play shots are great. Lots of pretty pink and purple in your garden! Huzzah for sun - we've had a dearth of it here, too.

Love the photos of the poodle games! I met up with a standard size poodle the other day, and thought of all of the I Like posters with their beautiful poodles! Your garden is lovely - yes to loving sunny days, especially after gray ones. I had heard about the singer, but never watched the video until just now. Isn't she wonderful?! Thanks for sharing!

Hi there, poodles playing make such great shots. We don't have cable but I like to watch these bits of the many truly talented people. Thanks for the link. I'm sure you are getting as much pleasure from your blooms as I am from my few.

Those pups are having too much fun - great shots, Mickie! So glad they play well together. Your garden is just gorgeous!
I don't watch much tv at all - there are some old shows I like, but I hate anything new, give me an old movie any day lol. I like your new fabric!

How in the world did I miss this? Did you post a bit later in the day last week? Dancing poodles shot is priceless. That could be a poster with the words, PLAY like your life depended on it!
ps Is Greta available to play/teach Milo how big poodles act?
