My Dad had a standing joke:
“I want three volunteers. You, you, and you.”
Obviously something he had learned in the Army.
And usually unappreciated by us kids as
it always entailed some chore.
However, most of the time
Volunteers are a good thing.
Like this Sunflower that popped up out front.
It jumped over from our nearby bird feeder.
These Pansy’s figured a crack in the sidewalk was just fine.
Our last volunteer …
Izzy / Lila
Rose calls her Izzy (Izabelle).
(A variant form of Elizabeth (interesting coincidence)
derived from Elisheva meaning ‘oath of God’.
I call her Lila.
(The name Lila is primarily a female name of
Indian origin that means Playful.)
That fits too.
But I don’t think she cares.
All up the task.
