National Read Across America Day

Today is National Read Across America Day and would have been the 113th birthday of the beloved Dr. Seuss where people are invited to host local events to celebrate and promote children’s reading and in honor of all who read, Sam wholeheartedly agrees and is ‘pawticipating.’ Click on this link to join the hop.

Sam here. Oh betcha, I totally support National Read Across America Day. See the Dr. Seuss quote I found. I told mom should use it in our post. And anyone who knows me, knows I definitely follow any direction I choose. Sorry ’bout your shoulder mom, but in my defense, it must be okay because Dr. Seuss told me to do it.

Mom here. Umm, Sam, I don’t think you’re suppose to ‘bogart’ an expression for your self-serving ways. And my shoulder will be just fine so long as I tie your leash around my waist. I have too much ‘ballast’ for you to go gallivanting here, there, everywhere, young man.

Sam: Heavy dog sigh. Oh well, it was worth a shot. We hope you are able to do some great reading today and everyday, and while you’re at it, you should add it to your list of fun things to do for a super weekend. Now why Mom is winking and smiling at some bottle of red liquid on the counter next to her Kindle?

Live, love, bark❣

        The rotten knucklehead knew well,
        All those stories Seuss would tell,
        A noun, a verb, a whimsical blurb . .
        It was these words to which she fell!

        Had to give it my best Dr. Seuss shot, lol.

        Quite the ‘best’ effort indeed. I have a rotator issue after compensating for surgery on the other one. It’s so painful and I dread having to go through that same rehab for this one. Sam takes advantage of it. Man is sucks getting old.

        Thank you! After a while you get used to the pain but it’s getting to the point where PT isn’t working. I’ve resorted to wrapping Sam’s leash around my waist. I don’t think he considers the ‘ballast’ fair but it helps me out. 😈

    We sure hope your shoulder will be better soon. Mom says that is one reason she likes our Gentle Leader as they give her the feeling she has a little more control if we start to pull really hard.

    Our little bipeds (the grands) all had read-ins at school today. Dr. Seuss is a wonderful day for those who love to read.

    Happy Dr. Seuss Day.

    In honor of NRAA Day I think I’ll go over to the rack and read all the labels on those red liquid bottles and see which is first in line for this evening. Have a great weekend out a the ranch. The Golden K got another few inches of snow last night and it’s supposed to snow again all night and tomorrow. We might need to slip in some brown liquid to stay warm while we’re snowed in. 🙂

    Thanks for reminding me that I have a book to read! My grandfather lent me The Constant Gardener a while ago and I’ve yet to read it. Looks like a long one, I better get started.
