March Forth

Even at nearly 13 year old, very old for a German Wire Haired Pointer, when Miss Maudie sees a new trail, she wants to follow it just to see where it leads. Surging forward, leaping into fresh streams, trying something new.... it seems to me what the month of March is all about. A year or two ago, I heard that this date, March 4th, is the only day of the year whose name (when spoken) is a directive: March Forth, the calendar tells. Eagerly, knowing spring is just ahead, I comply. Of course Maudie's gift for rushing ahead without over-thinking things, puts my own to shame! *grin*

Happy March, dear readers!

How cool is that? March 4th/forth! I'd never thought of that before. Kudos to your adventurous pooch -- we should all adopt a little more carpé diem in our lives. :)

It is cool, isn't it? And yep, we should all adopt a little more carpé diem! Definitely!
