Friendliness Reciprocated

Little Miss Friendly encouraged me to do our grocery shopping at Wal Mart this week because there's a McDonalds in there, and she had a yen (which is Japanese for craving fries). There was another little girl, smaller but older than Nikki Dee sitting with her parents at the adjacent table. Before I knew it, Nikki Dee was over there hugging the other girl who must have been impressed because when they were ready to leave she seemed totally smitten and was grabbing Little Miss Friendly's hand. I think, she was trying to take Nikki Dee home with her.

What a kid! She greets everyone, and everyone is her friend. It would be great if more of us could be like that. Sadly, most of us aren't. Especially me. Maybe it's not too late for me to learn from this kid. But it probably is.

Whenever Pam is out with her dogs, Little Miss Friendly wants to visit. She likes both Pam and the dogs although she keeps an arm's distance from the pooches. So, when Pam saw us out weeding, she offered to take her around the back of her place to pick lilacs for mom.

And so we did.


Here we are diligently weeding just before Pam came over.



And here is one of the lilac bushes.


Pam and Nikki Dee.


Flowers have been picked and Buppa is happy to pose with the kid.

A nice diversion and a beautiful bouquet for Mom, all because Little Miss Friendly is who she is. Methinks the planet needs more Nikki Dees.

Yes, the planet needs more sweeties!

What a lovely lilac. I see you are back in your cold-weather clothes, though! Hard to believe it was shorts weather up there for a time.
