Off-season, I have these wet-wipe type towelettes, and when I run out of those, I use Fabreeze :-) I was looking at the ingredient list one day, and was amazed that the only ingredients are perfume, and water. I figured what the hay, dogs don't lick where I'd spray anyways.. so every once in a while when he's running by, I give him a squirt. :-)
that gave me a smile and an LOL!!

Hmmm...the last thing to make me smile? Well, my dinner and the mere thought of purposefully putting my cats in water . It's funny enough when they do it accidentally, but on purpose, LOL!!! They would never meow to me again.

Well, lesssee...

I came home from Constance and Kim's this afternoon to a very hot house. Not air-conditioned and it was 94+ degrees today. Well, the kitchen downstairs does have a small window unit.

After being away for more than 24 hours I'm usually greeted by many pairs of eyes and pointy ears with the attitude, "Where ya been?!"

Not today. I opened the front door. Made lots of noise. Walked through the entry and main hallway, into the family room, into the breakfast room. Still no one.

Yep...They were all flopped on the floor in the kitchen soaking up the cooling breezes of the air-conditioner. They were clearly studying the Mr. Wizard lesson of "cool air falls, warm air rises."

Instead the reaction was, "You're disturbing us."

They looked so comfy, all I could do was smile. I am happy to provide them with a comfortable haven during this heat. At least they're not outside.

now remembering that brought a smile.

A nice long chat with a wonderful lady.

I have been feeling down and a little sorry for myself lately and just got off the phone with Katie E. We laughed, we commiserated about insurance claim woes, we shared memories and stories.

This smile is going to last a long while and I think I will be sticking around DC for a long time to come.....if you will have me that is!

Aw, Laurie, you beat me to it. I'll be smiling for days then, add to your wonderful phone call, all the patient help I received from another DC member who helped me with a computer problem that had been plaguing me since Tuesday afternoon.

I won't be able to get this smile off my face for a long, long while.

Thanks you wonderful people!!!!!
