Exercise Challenges

Author: October Cycling Challengeā€“Labrador Report (Day 9/31)šŸ¾

This is the Labrador reporting here. My human did her thirty minutes listening to YouTube as a break today. She’s been a tired pup and mumbled some funny things like “If tomorrow wasn’t my Friday, I’d be guilty of premeditated homicide.”

We’re still celebrating the one year anniversary of our first book, Memory Bound. Check it out on Amazon or request your local library order a copy. Here I am modeling with it; don’t I look adorable?

See you tomorrow folks. Ker-bark!

In the sidewalk ambling up laid worn bricks with donors’ names etched. Most of the names were erased by the elements, faint letters visible sporadically, leaving nonsense to be deciphered and speculated.

We lingered only a moment, as my Lab was undertaking a smell inventory. In the pause, I became aware how short human memory and legacies are, despite salesmen’s promises. We are born with nothing; we die with nothing. As a stumbling follower of Yeshua, this doesn’t bother me. I chose to place my trust in him and his words, something I don’t consider transient. This speck of dust does hope to leave some books behind, like the BrontĆ«s did in their century.Ā  If anything, someone can use the novels to prop open a door for another. Or level a wobbly table or two on the Enterprise. It could happen.
