    No he wasn’t Julie…not even wearing it round his neck helped. So he cursed himself, & cursed his ship, & cursed the poor albatross to forever being seen as a metaphor.

    The moon is going to be full and it is also gping to be the closest to the planet it can get. So.BIG MOON. Its always cool.

    I love these soft blues. And for sure don’t shoot that albatross — that’s real bad luck.

    This pick really caught my attention immediately. Somehow it all fits together PERFECTLY. I find that light blues are hard for me to work with in order to make a statement. I thinks yours stands out because of the contrasting neutral darks and the beige that doesn’t overpower the soft blue; and your clever theme adds a lot of interest. What a great combination. ( P.S. I remember seeing the moon last night, not quite full, and thinking how big it was ).

    Wonderful pick, Deb! Your combo of blues is so beautiful – love the theme too! :)

    These colors are great, but it is your arrangement of all the elements that makes this a fabulous pick, Deb !

    I am hoping for a clear sky tonight because the moon will be right outside my bedroom window when I go to bed. :)

    She is & is cowering right because its raining. This anxiety is getting worse & worse. Getting doggy downers.

    We gave Zeus antidepressants for his anxiety. It was working somewhat but then he stopped eating all his food so we took him off the meds. He hasn’t regained his really bad anxiety, just stayed at the medicated level. It’s like he doesn’t want to take the nasty pills so he is on his best behavior. But thunder, gunshots, fireworks all put him over the edge. Good luck with Bella. She can lick me to death anytime! :)

    Bella made many new friends at the beach last night waiting for the SuperMoon.

    Our dog Sandy use to have huge panic attacks when it thundered. Hide under the bed panting, giving off this horrid smell. She would shake like crazy. Now that she can’t hear or see, she is all good with it.
    She just turned 18yrs old.

    Yea Bella does the panting thing. The worst is the new symptom. She pees on the floor. That has just started in the past few months. Apparently lightning scares her really bad. She freaked over the flashes of everyone’s cameras last night.

    oh poor baby. It’s so sad when things like that shake them up so badly and you can’t do much in real time to help them. Have you tried a thundershirt? (Did we have this conversation before–suddenly I have deja vu…. :) ) The first dog we had after we got married would lick open hot spots from anxiety. Our vet put him on primadone. It helped. We started calling him (90 lbs lab/shepherd) our little Prima donna. :) Good luck with Bella!! Give her a hug from me!
