Well, I survived the big night of Divali. We had a full house with five little humans under age seven. They liked the incessant fireworks, and squealed with delight and "Oh, Wow!" and lots of excited screams. Our landlord came over the night before and brought us sweets, which is a tradition. Our neighborhood was all lit up, and the families lit candles after dark. The explosions and fires started early in the day but really kicked in after dark and continued until 3:00 am. Lady tried to get me to take care of business but I was having none of it. Are you nuts? So, I got her up at 5:30 this morning and took her out to survey the aftermath, and take care of business, of course. 
 This is my lane
 Just look at this mess!
 Lights are still on.
 My friend (or I should say Lady's friend -he isn't nice to me) came to greet us. He was in hiding all night.
 She's nicer to me. She begs Lady to scratch her, and jumps up on Lady.
 They are street dogs who live on my lane, and keep other street dogs away.

 They made a mess of my park!
 The festivities will continue a few more days but hopefully not too many crackers.
That dreaded suitcase is out again. Lady has three trips this month. The first is to Thailand, and the other two are in India. I'm staying here until Aunty Delena picks me up. My little humans will be here for a couple more days. She's taking my laptop so I guess it will be Flat Marley going.



  1. Oh-oh!
    Looks like tons and tons of fireworks!
    I hope everything goes back to normal soon!
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  2. Glad you survived Divali. We have Guy Fawkes Night tomorrow which means they have been letting off fireworks here too. I hide behind the sofa. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Good to see that you made it through the night! :)

  5. Glad you made it through Divali. Yesterday was International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. We had a beautiful service at our church and prayed for many of the persecuted Christians all around the world.

    Prayers for Lady as she travels.


  6. Hope the noise didn't bother you too much. Thank you for taking us on your walk. Hope it quiets down for yo.
