Did Lucas have a purpose? He sure did. He brought us joy, happiness, love, laughter and tears. Dogs remind us to live for today, to live in the moment, to run and play and lick the ones you love. Because life is short and one day, they're gone.
As the films flyer says "Every dog happens for a purpose" although our free tickets card had the words "Some pets stay with you forever". Another mystery that can stay that way.
So this afternoon, with the sun shining we decided that the housework could most definitely wait and that taking Lola to the beach to watch the sunset was far more important.
And it was.
Have burgers had their day in the sun? Fried chicken has always been around, but seems to be trying to muscle in on the action as the next big thing. Gami chicken has been around for a while, but one has just opened in Southland and I've been wanting to try it for a while. Delish, but there will always be room for a good burger!
