Dried Tulips Resemble Asian Flair


Time strips life from us
Our true beauty still remains
If we search within

We still have a lot of snow here on the countrysides of PA. We ran out of wood last weekend! It's melting slowly, and has finally stopped snowing! My Valentine tulips however are fading beautifully. They resemble Asian flowers now, taking on a whole different perspective.

I played around and added some backround color. Haven't had much time to dable in my manipulative photo art. Too many things going on at one time! Hope you like my haiku! We're headed for a meltdown the end of the week! Stay warm and Literally In The Moment!

Oh D.B. I'm so sorry to hear this, as an animal avocate I'm very concerned for your family and animals, and especially for the dogs involved in this kennel.

I encourage you to take this issue to the highest level, I know what you are saying about the local level. My best friend had the same problem with local authorities there in helping to find her stolen dog! More pressing crimes taking place there!

I've been able to catch the attention of representatives here in PA, about new PA puppymill laws and my concerns over PA park closings.

Email or call your congressmen, and State Representatives! Even better if you can get folks from your area to do the same, it will draw more attention to the growing problem! How would they feel living right next door to this!

You can always do a petition online for this purpose, here is one you can initiate petition on:
if you do a petition let me know I'll sign, and get all my animal facebook friends to help sign, and pass it on to their friends. You can forward that petition to Representatives. Being this is happening right next store to you, you can generate a lot of public support and awareness from animal lovers everywhere!

Dog fighting is illegal in all 50 states and carries a felony charge, up to 250.000 fine, and jailtime of 3-10 years! Especially in mine and your state!

Your petition could be something catchy like "Neighbors United Against Dog Fighting," to include folks from every neighboring state!

Keep me posted if I can think of anything else I'll let you know! I'll pray for younses and the animals too!
