Taming of the Wolf




Sometimes grandson Nicholas (5-1/2) just totally cracks me up! When he was with us for an overnight last weekend, he found our Mardi Gras beads hanging on the usual coat closet doorknob and wore them for awhile (as he often does). A couple days after he left, I noticed them on Wolf, who sits in our front-door hallway at the bottom of the stairs.



Wolf knows she's tame enough to live in the house and sports the handkerchief bandana as a reminder. But Mardi Gras beads? HA. She's never had it so good. She actually loves Nicholas as much as he loves her and knows she's one lucky wolf!

  11. Thanks, Neil, for your nice comments! I DID have problems figuring out how you did B&W on your site but that's probably because I don't have PS Elements. I have PS CS2. But I'll check my books to see if I can figure it out. Thanks.

  15. That's just darling. He must have worked long and hard dressing up your lovely wolf.

  16. CS: Yes, Wolf is very lucky on all accounts :)

    DIB: With your Fox and my Wolf, we've got lots of stories to tell!

    DW: There's nothing better than a well-dressed Wolf :)

    Christina: It's funny--no one saw him do it so it wouldn't surprise me if he thought of it as he was walking down the stairs from his bedroom and then just spontaneously took them off himself and put them on Wolf. What a character!

  17. Hey, Ginnie, that's neat about Wolf and the beads and Nicholas! You gotta love what kids do -- sometimes opening our eyes to new aesthetics.

  18. Yes, as you know, Tim, kids are unbelievable. As the bumper sticker says, "If I had known it would be this fun, I would have been a grandparent first!"
