I am happy for you, Kades, and Ethan. I know your night will be special.

I am smiling at the fact that I am going out on a BIG DATE tomorrow with my hubby. I bought tickets for a concert for his birthday and my sister is staying with Dad so we don't have to worry about dinner, etc. We will leave just after lunch, go visit Tony's parents, have dinner and go to the concert. This is my first concert in about 10 years (I haven't been able to even think of going to one in the last few with my leg) and it is DH's first EVER!!!!

I was getting lunch ready for DH, Dad and I, when the doorbell rang. I locked the dog gate and went to see who it was and standing there was a young man with a big smile on his face. I opened the door and he bounded in and headed immediately for the dog gate where Violet and Joie were going mad trying to get to him.

Our young visitor, Joseph, lives across the street from our old house that we left three years ago. He would spend more time at our place than he did at home. In those days he was a 10 year old starved for food and attention and he would get both with us. His parents both worked two jobs each and his brothers and sister didn't have time for him. He would help walk the dogs, make meals, clean up, you name it. I taught him a few easy songs on the piano and he and DH got along famously (it was like the son I could never give DH).

Well, when we moved, we would pick him up and bring him over as much as we could and DH would take him to the dog park with him. But this slowed down and the last time we saw Joseph was when he and two friends biked all the way over from the old neighbourhood (almost 1/2 hour by car).

Well, the young man who showed up today was all of 13 and 1 1/2 feet taller but still the same as I remembered him. He joined us for lunch, having 2 pieces of toast and a heaping bowl of ravioli, and was up for ice cream which Tony offered on the way to driving Joseph home.

But the greatest thing is that he and Dad got along famously. They were even watching the hockey game together for awhile! And he tired the dogs out for us which helps me out as I can't take them for walks.

But the part that really put a smile on my face is when DH called to say that they went for ice cream but Joseph wanted to be dropped back off within 2 blocks from our house.....because he wanted to find the house of a girl he met! Definitely NOT the Joseph I knew before!

I am smiling because the month long visitor has left for Texas this morning. Now I can relax somewhat.

My dog. He's a "talker" and makes all kinds of noise when you pet him sometimes. Makes me smile every time.
