Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!
It was good to hear from Steve today in the last post. He always has such amazing stories. He has plenty more at https://stevescountry.com/ and I look forward to Chapter 2!
Today, well, was crazy. I was putting my things in the car preparing for work when a dog leapt on me!
As many of you know, I am a little jumpy around stray dogs. I have been attacked numerous times.
Not this one. Out of the blue, this little guy jumped into my car! He was camera shy!
He was really friendly and I coaxed him out of my car and into the yard. Several minutes later, the owners came and got him. It was a great story to tell my work when I was late, but I doubt they believed a word I said.
This is the second time recently that a dog has run to my house looking for refuge. Back in December, we had a dog named Bubbles show at our doorstep and we found the owner with a little work.
Don’t these dogs know how leary I am of them?
Well, I don’t know, but both were positive experiences.
In other news, breathing was much easier today and I walked 5.01 miles. I am not nearly as exhausted as yesterday. I made time to pray, read my Bible and I stayed under my calorie count, so all on all, not too shabby.
Expanding my horizons, I have been trying my hand at Linked In posts. While I get a lot of views in comparison to time spent there, this is my crowd. You, yes you, are a much better crowd for sincerity and a feeling of community. Linked In posts are stressful, well planned endeavors. Here, I am free and at ease in my thoughts and thankful for all of you!

Love you too bro
When are you going to write an article here at the Campfire?
Sounds like your day went well. That’s always good.
A lot better than many. My health is improving. Covid hit me pretty hard.
Hope 2021 is treating you well Benjamin 😇🎉
I hope so for you as well. If you need anything, let me know!
Yes Benjamin – God is so kind 🙏
Your friendship 😊 And prayers for the success of my first book 😊
Will you leave a link for your first book so I can promote it? This is quite exciting!
Thank you so much Benjamin. That is so thoughtful and kind of you.
It is titled 4 Pillars of Abundant Life and is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble
Have a joyous day 😊
Let me take a look! Thank you for the link!
I am told the Ebook would be ready in a week and the book Preview too would be added 😊
Am learning something new everyday!
I am interested! I hear you cannot get to my site. Brotherscampfire@gmail.com is my email. Please send a link, but make sure you tell me who you are!
Ashok, I hate to ask, bit will you send that link to me on my contact page? It is not working here and I honestly want to take a look.
Can’t seem to open your site 🤔
Mmm, that is frustrating.
The dogs love you.
So it would seem, Sara! I have no clue why. I am half scared of them .
Dogs are very loyal and friendly compared to human. They are so loving. Maybe fear in your mind because of dog attack.
I think so. I have been attacked several times. They are wonderful creatures, however. It is always nice to hear from you, Sara!
And hi Benjamin,
It’s crazy this story of a dog climbing in the car …
I am like you I do not trust dogs, I love them but I have been attacked several times …
Since then I have been extra careful, some dogs are weird and unpredictable. and often the owners are responsible for the bad shots of their animals. next to my house there is a vast public forest where dogs should all be on a leash, and everyone cheerfully unties their dog, it’s unbearable, so I gave up my walks or running , You’re wasting your breath.
I congratulate you on your diet, it’s good to hang on, you will get a lot of comfort and satisfaction.
Me from today I undertake a great diet and I am followed by a great coach. I decided to take care of myself; Lately I haven’t been doing well at all, my father is doing very badly, and he continues his silly things. I decided to take a step back and take care of myself!
I thank you for your news, it is a pleasure to follow you even if I am not necessarily regular at the moment, I have moments of less well and sometimes I fall back on myself.
Je t’embrasse Benjamin
Dogs can be unpredictable, as well as the owners. I am excited for you that you have a coach and a plan! I will keep your father in my prayers. Jesus is the answer.
It is good to hear from you, and I hope things take a turn for something more positive in the future. If you need anything, let me know.
You are adorable !!
Yesterday I saw my coach and I am very satisfied, thanks to him almost 20 years ago I had lost 20 kilos, I wish myself the same.
This man is incredible, he has an enormous charisma and above all he instilled enormous motivation in these patients.
With him I know that I will succeed, and then, I want to succeed!
I wish you a good day, I’ll tell you about my progress;)
see you soon Benjamin
Absolutely! Keep me updated.
Dogs have something they want to discuss with you.😉
It sure sounds that way!
But how loving and cute for them to pursue you. I hope you’re having a relaxing weekend dear friend.🔔🍮🍂🍂🍮❤️
Not too shabby! It just began. I will start it off going to church.
Regtig? ‘n MIni-Schnauzer? My favourite dogs.
I am not sure, but they were nice, well mannered visitors!
The second one is a Miniature Schnuazer, seems to be a pure bread. Expensive dogs. This one is a salt and pepper one, you also get black and silver. And they love people, do not loose hair, learn a lot and are certainly a man’s best friend (woman’s in my case).
Well, that is good to know. They were both fine looking dogs with excellent temperaments. Thanks for the identification!
The first one is a type of fox terrier. I am also weary of dogs.
I have been attacked by dogs a few times. I don’t think a terrier would be good around my ducks either. I did like these little guys.
I am so sorry to hear. No, they won’t.
My mini Aussie is wonderful with them.
Such a cute little dog!
They definitly sense a great person when they see one even if you’re afraid or smell a good hand out. 🤣 don’t get bit again ❤️
No doubt. Thank you for the kind words!
You’re welcome Ben! ❤️
Awww… dogs finding you reaffirms that you have the good juju!! Many lost dogs bonded my last neighborhood. Now it’s new neighbors and stray cats.
I’m sooooooo very glad you’re feeling better! I was watching an NHK World (Japan) documentary on the pandemic and struck by how I take “an elephant sitting on my chest” for granted!! Does that make me more prepared??
LinkedIn is toooo much pressure!!
I do not wish for anyone to get Covid. That is for sure. Especially someone with underlying conditions.
Dogs scare me. Perhaps I should stop wearing peanut butter cologne.
Yeah, linked in just is all pressure
There’s no sense of humor!! I was an early adopter but have never enjoyed the site.
They are ruthless over there, and all it seems to be are a bunch of self professed gurus that are still in school.
It feels like a high school reunion, or maybe high school itself… everyone trying to appear so impressive instead of being natural. I only use it to research interviewers and connect with a few coworkers from my past.
I agree. I have looked in some detail at funnel marketing tactics and there is a lot of that. You are welcome to connect.
To this day my wife claims that her dog ate her AP U.S. history textbook.
I would assume this to be the truth, but all that is in the past and has passed.
Now, if a fly were to eat what passed, and the dog ate the fly, would history repeat itself?
That sounds right, but the reason that the dog ate the fly was because it was dark and the dog couldn’t see the fly. It was a fly by night.
You win this round. That is funny.
