Let's DO be silly

"Not a shred of evidence exists in favor of the idea that life is serious."

It's Living Lovely time again at Mt. Hope Chronicles!

If you really want to know how silly I am, I could tell you about the dream I had the other night in which a stegosaurus needed a brain transplant and my hand with thumb up and index finger out and me making "pew!" noises could be used to shoot the bad guys (I will blame Real Men, the 1987 movie, for that one - now that is a silly movie if you're looking for one).

But lest I frighten anyone into calling a psychiatrist on me, I'll just share some animal silliness.

Queen Isabella is old (14) but that doesn't mean she can sit still. If it wasn't her nose in the camera it was her nose straight up as she tried to lick my face.


She is a great source of my silliness - she loves to play and run around and she doesn't care that she's "mature" - it's all still fun for her! I took this video of her last December:




I love how animals can be silly too and even induce us to join in.

If you haven't seen this one of the elk calf yet, I thought it was great. :)



Enjoy a little silliness this weekend!

I have really crazy dreams too but I don't remember having one with a Stegosaurus in it.

Both of the videos are so fun! Have you seen the one of the dog tunneling though the snow? It's really funny too!

Queen Isabella is so cute! She doesn't move like any 14 year old dog I've ever seen. I think her Mama keeps her young with all the silliness. :)

Aw, I loved both videos. How sweet and funny. Love your pup. She sure is cute and active for being 14. Good for her. Everyone needs a furry friend.
Have a lovely Sunday.
