Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!
The “I have a Dream” speech’s most famous passage
I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.’
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification; one day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys I have a dream today.and white girls as sisters and brothers.

Minister, Civil Rights Activist
Yesterday was Joshua’s 8th Birthday. And today is an even more important day for him. Five years ago a three old cat sat in the shelter and was looking for a furever home, before he came to our household. Since then, he became a great member of our family.

Happy belated Birthday & Adoption Anniversary, Josh’!
Lexi, our Sheltie, turned 13 human years (91 doggie years), today. She brings so much joy to our lives. And she still loves it, when Katelynn and Sara share their sandwiches with her. 😉

My ol’ Lexi was taking a comfortable nap last Summer (2016).
Happy Birthday, Lexi!
Yesterday, Kevin and I took Katelynn and Sara out for their birthday dinner. Since the girls are both born in October, we usually go to one restaurant, which is fun and has better quality food. The girls decided, they would like to go back to the “… Japanese place not far from Kaboom Town …”. So, to Kobe Steaks Japanese Restaurant we went:
Sara and Katelynn can’t wait to eat shrimps and Filet Mignon.
Oh my, I should have stayed away from the “Geisha Special”. … So much Vodka! 😀
The cook builds the onion volcano.
The famous “Onion Volcano” is on fire!!!
Hmm, so much good food.
A little bit more seasoning, and the food will be delicious.
