April is Volunteer Month

Today is the one day of the week I don't enjoy very much but then, maybe again, I need to take another look at it.

My human volunteers a few hours every other Friday afternoon at the Train Station in Manassas, VA with Historic Manassas, Inc.  Basically, he answers phones, helps visitors and wherever needed and it gets him some human exposure or the social aspect with humans that humans his age apparently need to have.  He needs a lot of things but, well, I am dog so I digress on this one so I can have my treats. WOOF!! Not sure if he agrees since he's an introverted old geezer set in his ways, but he does it to appease the powers that be and should be obeyed -lest he should do otherwise.  BARK!!!

You know, after a week of writing, editing, rewrites, photographing, editing, finding photos for the post, thinking of another idea for a post, walking my human, feeding my human, exercising my human, it might just be a great thing that he has to go to town for a few hours so I can sneak up to his bed and nap the afternoon away!

It is a good time for my nap or at least some quiet time away from the humans for a little while.  Dad will be fine at the Train Station and will be back before I know it-

And, Mom?  Well, she is doing her things somewhere in the area of where she is right now-  WOOF

Got some free time?  Consider volunteering in your community- help make it a better place to live and work.  Volunteering in an area of your interest helps make it even more fun.  BARKS!
