1. Whizzing by on the interstate, I catch a glimpse of a rockchuck sitting on his hind legs at the very edge of the road, watching the traffic roar by.
2. Getting out of the car at a friend's house and being greeted by a little black goat and a happy big-pawed puppy.
3. K has a large and extended meltdown due to fatigue, hunger and the fact that she can't get her shorts pulled up by herself. Thankfully, Betsy the cat saves the day. K's good humor is restored after she demonstrates to Betsy how to blow her nose, has a good long chat with Betsy and "reads" On the Farm to the calm cat.
