Three Dog August Night

 

Three Dog August Night

 

Three Dog August Night   It's now August 3, 2019.  How did it get to be the third already?  And we can't forget that it is also now August as the year approaches yet another season next month.  As far as it being 2019, there's much to be said about the years passing by with rapid speed.  But I digress...

 

Threes of all kinds are on my mind.  Think about it.  Or not.  It's my post so I will start.  The first thing that comes to mind: Three Dog Night.  Kinda related(in a somewhat odd way) to August.  You know the dog days of August could easily be the dog nights of August too. Okay not a typical thought process but I never claimed to have such "typicalness" in thought or pondering...

 

Now back to the power of the number three.  It's one that is rather close to me.  I am one of three children. The oldest?  Yes.  But the smartest?  The most attractive?  The most successful?  Those three questions lead me to thinking of "three strikes and you're out".  Well I guess there is that familiar baseball reference (and I can name a lot of things I don't know about sports...definitely more than three).

 

And I also think of our penal system as "three strikes" has taken on new meaning with regard to that particular and unfortunate element of society today.  Hmm....maybe this thought process is heading in the wrong direction....I think I may go back to pondering.  On the third....

 

 

 

The images in this post are from www.canstockphoto.com because there's a sure way to attract some attention and a dog is usually a good method.  So three must be better, right?  And six...

HI Michael Jacobs

The Rule of Thirds is an essential photographic technique.  Of course, there are those who might not agree with that rule!

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® - I can relate to the importance of three in art and design.  Finding those who will disagree with anything in the world is inevitable.

Michael, Michael, Michael, now why did you have to do that. I'm humming Eli's Coming and I'm sure I'll be humming other songs from one of my favorite groups. I think of the old superstition that things come in 3s, especially when it's deaths. 

And then when staging, I try to group things in three or an odd number..not too fond of things lined up like little soldiers.

Hey Michael Jacobs here's my take on 3 when it comes to you - instead of 3 strikes you're out think of it as 3rd times a charm.  In dog speak that's a really good treat to be pondering! (Barney told me so).

Michael, three is a charm, except when you talk about getting married.  Been there twice, NOT a third time.  LOL

Well, we're likely from the same generation so, The Three Stooges comes to mind - lots and lots of laughs with those guys! 

The Rule of Threes applies to decorating - always have an odd number of items on a shelf - typically 3.

"To succeed in life, you must have THREE things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funny bone!" -Reba McIntyre

And, of course, "It is by the goodness of God that in our country, we have three unspeakably precious things - the freedom of speech, freedom of conscience and the prudence never to practice either of them." - Mark Twain

Debe Maxwell, CRS - I was not a big fan of The Three Stooges nor The Three Muskateers(I prefer The Three Bears for childhood reading/storytelling and later My Three Sons on television followed by Three's Company).   Your choice of quotes are excellent.

Three Dog NIght was my favorite band back in the day. I still love hearing their songs pop up on the radio...of course that only happens if we are listening to an oldies station!

Sharon Tara - I remember the first time I heard an "old" favorite playing as an instrumental in an elevator or some such place.  I was horrified. I felt so old.  It was a Foreigner song...
