Laughing Mood: Photo Friday

Not for the serious frame of mind?

I tend toward thinking, reading a variety of nonfiction books, blogs and books designed to make me a better writer. When I’m not writing, working or thinking, I call a friend to go for a walk or work in the garden. Much of my time I give as a volunteer to two or more nonprofits. I volunteer as a teacher for youth at a Center for Spiritual Living (16 plus years) and as Redwood Writers Author Support Facilitator.

One of my all time favorite hair-brained comedies

As I shift my focus from writing nonfiction this season to completing my final revision of mystery book, Dog Leader Mysteries, I lean toward silly humor and dumb videos. Love wild black and white comedies too, like the movie “Bringing Up Baby” starring Kathryn Hepburn and Cary Grant.

Movie animals do amazing work

My only caution today is, don’t adopt or try to care for animals that need much more care, roaming room, food  or interaction than you are willing to give. Think research, what type of life style do you live, are you active everyday and at the level your newly desired pet needs.

Lee Duncan and Rin Tin Tin
Lee Duncan and Rin Tin Tin

Rin Tin Tin, the world’s first movie star dog

I’ve read and written about Rin Tin Tin, and by the way, Lee Duncan found his pup on a battlefield in France during the first World War. After years of trying, Lee never replaced his rescued and beloved Rinty. None of the puppies had Rin Tin Tin’s willingness to work and to enjoy life with Duncan.

Do head on over and read Learning from Dogs by Paul Handover.

Thanks, Deborah Taylor-French
