Happy Tuesday and Tuesday Show and Tail

I have spent the day cleaning up my i phone and my e mails so I found this and had to share it for Happy Tuesday It is so cute and I thought of not only myself (hahaha) but also Myra! I thought you'd enjoy this silliness.
I never forget our little buddy Dapper Gentleman Bandit. He was so young here. We lost him last November 2018 but never a day goes by that we don't think of his handsome face and his quirky way about him. He is a star today for the Tuesday and Tails. I am hoping Angela swings by her blog and comes back to this fun blog hop.
Oh Maxine, your suppose to watch the stars in the sky!
Aw....this sweet species had a rough go of things when the devastating man made fires tore across Australian harming so much wildlife and taking lives. This fellow is cute as can be and I am hopeful their homeland will be restored, slowly but surely.
We have been experiencing some difficult times all around the world. But if you just listen to the Lord, He will guide us all through these rough times.
We have been trying to remind ourselves to take some photos. We took this selfie outside this morning in our front yard. Our neighbor across the street yelled, "you're not six feet apart, you're too close together! Social distancing." We love our neighbors. They are so thoughtful and care for us. I am serious too when I say this. We live in an older neighborhood, homes built from brick built in the 1960's. There are no HOA fees only neighborhood watches and the city likes to see neat and tidy front yards without tall weeds. We love our home and would never leave here. We sit on about an 8200 square foot lot. New homes near us sell for $600-750,000 and have back yards as large as a powder room! So we will stay and enjoy our big yard and our big hearted neighbors too.
The hubby is going to continue to work. He is considered an essential employee and since his work entails using scanners and other  high end equipment he can not bring it home with him. But the firm is taking every precaution and the staff is so small they barely cover one area of their floor instead of the 8 floors they usually encompass. They are doing this for two weeks and will work one team one week and the second team another week. Everyone will be paid for working and for the week they will not be working. Today he had the day off because everyone has worked so hard keeping the office running smoothly in one small sector of their office while other staff and support staff could work from their homes remotely. In the legal world, the wheels must continue to move. I am very proud of my husband and his co workers . I am very proud of the employer he has. They take care of their own. I feel grateful and blessed he has worked for such a great office all these years.

Bandit was such a cutie! Your selfie is fabulous and so are your neighbors, glad they are looking out for you. Stay safe, healthy and virus-free.

I'm glad to read that you and your husband are okay so far. DH is now working from home. This is a hard time for everyone and I really appreciate the humor nibblets you shared. I hear you on the newer, more expensive homes with nothing for a yard and while I certainly want a new home that's roomier than what we have, I also want one that puts some distance between me and the next person. I don't get the appeal of such neighborhoods with ginormous homes and no yard. That's just not for me. Be safe and stay healthy, my dear. Sending hugs and prayers your way! xx

Hahahaha! Even before I saw my name, I was wondering how far I could share that first meme! Sweet sweet Bandit. We still talk about Caraleigh (gone now since 2013); at least I do and tell the girls about their 'angel sister.' Your hubby's company sounds like they're doing the best possible job they can under these awful circumstances. Love the selfie!
