I read this over Betty's shoulder today. "Optimism is not about providing a recipe for self-deception. The world can be a horrible, cruel place, and at the same time it can be wonderful and abundant. These are both truths. There is not a halfway point; there is choosing which truth you put in your personal foreground." (Professor of psychology, Sonja Lyubomirsky in her book, The How of Happiness, p.111)
Cow dogs are very good at optimism, so I liked this a lot. Bets says that I have been remiss about the blog all summer long. I think remiss means that I have not done her blog for her while she has been goofing off at the TA Ranch all summer. Tonight I will be updating some fun stuff that I did this summer and might even include something for her. Hmmmm? Should I ask for a raise? Should I ask for a salary first? Maybe more dog treats?
