A barking dog is often more useful than a sleeping lion.

Surely happiness is reflective, like the light of heaven.

American Washington Irving (1783-1859) ranks as one of his country’s most renowned authors.  His amazing short stories of “Rip Van Winkle” and “The Legend of Sleeping Hollow” remain all-time classics.  Ironically, his final resting place is at the Sleeping Hollow Cemetery in New York state.

  1. Two things I love about this post, Richard! Dogs and Sleepy Hollow (My favorite Halloween movie will always be Johnny Depp’s version of Ichobod Crane in Sleepy Hollow). On another note, the WP gremlins had me unfollowing you! That’s not right as I’ve been a follower! It’s done this with others, too. 🥲
