That being said, the first order of business is that my furbabies want to give a quick preview of our most recent project at home. With the help of their Pawpaw (my dad), we're in the process of setting up some fish tanks.
The furbabies are thrilled with the new arrivals, especially Toby, who has always had a crush on the frog. While the frog is more than used to being gawked at by four-legged furballs, I hope the fish aren't too traumatized. (Who am I kidding? Eddy's already been in the top tank once. I was too shocked to even consider grabbing photographic evidence at the time, so feel free to use your imagination when picturing this incident.)
Now, on to the next order of business. Today is my third and therefore final day of the Three Day Quote Challenge. One last time, here are the rules for this challenge:
1. Post for three consecutive days.
2. Choose and share one or three quotes each day.
3. Challenge three additional bloggers each day.
For Days 1 and 2, I shared two of my favorite quotes from two different authors (J.R.R. Tolkien and Oscar Wilde). I wanted to continue on this author quoting pattern of mine for Day 3 as well, and I decided to go with one of my favorite modern times author. I love a good, fun book, and I'm one of those who loves to read fantasy. So, I chose Neil Gaiman as my author to quote today. I had trouble picking my most favorite quote by him. Luckily, though, as seen above, the second rule in this challenge says to choose one or three quotes. Therefore, I chose three for today.
I love me a quote that is unique and fun, but even more so one that is profound and enlightening. That's about the best explanation I can give for choosing these three quotes in particular. Here they are:
"Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten." -Neil Gaiman
"The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can." -Neil Gaiman
"Sometimes you wake up. Sometimes the fall kills you. And sometimes, when you fall, you fly." -Neil GaimanAnd, one last time, the last rule in this challenge is for me to challenge three more bloggers each day. I've chosen three blogs, but please feel no obligation or pressure to participate in the challenge. I know that not everyone has the time or desire to partake in blogging challenges, so please know that you only have to join in if you wish to and have time. I also tried to pick bloggers that I have not seen already nominated by another. That all being said, here are the three that I've chosen to challenge today:
1. Eric and Flynn's Adventures
and, though this may make me a bit of a cheater,
3. anyone who would like to participate in this challenge but who has not found themselves on a list such as this one.
Thank you again, Ellen, for nominating me for this challenge! I love quotes, and I had a great time participating.
Happy (not-even-close-to-being-wordless) Wednesday, our furiends!
Our Tip of the Day:
Although this is certainly no law or hard and fast rule, it is often recommended to try to stick with names with two syllables when naming your pets. This is because names with two syllables perhaps best cater to an animal's attention to detail. Whereas one syllable names may not be long enough to catch an animal's attention, and whereas three or more syllables might be just long enough to make an animal lose interest or focus, two syllable names are a happy medium. Of course, this does not mean your furbaby has to have a two syllable name. If needed, perhaps the best thing to do is test out a couple of your favorite names and see to which one your new furbaby responds best.
