had a rousing conversation with my handyman. about the second world war and germany. his father was in ss. he said was like being in the marines. not to sure if i believe that. anyway his dad tried to come here after the war but couldn't because of it. so his family went to argentina. then he came here on work permit. was drafted. said they made a whole group american citizens so they could join and go to vietnam. he went to college on g.i bill. very interesting, some of it made me smile to find such a intelligent man working as a handyman. said he is a retired engineer.

I also darn socks...I say, "Darn!" as I throw them away
Oh my gosh, I have to borrow that (and your chicken joke), if you don't mind, for Facebook! That is so funny!

I have been feeling quite down today and not really sure why. It got worse while watching our hockey team get trounced. All of a sudden the phone rang and it was DH calling from work. He turned up the radio there so I could hear one of my all time favourite songs playing in the background. He said he thought it might put a smile on my face. That it did....the call as much as the song!

When I was living in Bozeman for nursing school, I was miserable and lonely, Shrek felt the same way. One night I mailed him a card with, "Unchained Melody" written on the inside. After that anytime we were really missing each other, we would play the song for ourselves. It helped!

watching my charlie cat ( have determined he is a rag doll persian) go for his goodies. every time he gets them is just like the first time for him. he gets so excited and leaps into the air with joy. he gives me many smiles.
