I am also smiling because I just spent two hours at a Tim Horton's catching up with my best friend. She just came home from New York and it was great hearing her talk about it. But the best part was when I pulled out my computer and said "okay, let's order some tickets for Hairspray (a local production but they are always incredible)". I told her it was on me and the smile on her face and the tears in her eyes made it so worthwhile. I ordered them right then - for May 13th!
Laurie, you are so sweet and good. I hope the two of you have a blast. Cade made an appy little 8 inch pizza, brushed with evoo and sea salt browned then they put on fontina and parmesan sheese melted the cheese he loved them than came a Salad torn romaine with a vinegrette made of orange zest and juice, evoo, salt, diced apple, and pepper and a pinch of sugar, spaghetti and the sauce from scratch and then homemade biscuits from scratch with whipped cream, they also were taught the proper way to use their knives. I was afrain me picky eater would have a problem with salad and pasta but he willing ly tasted it all the only thing he refused were strawberries which is mom and I were glad to swallow for him I wish you could have been there to see his reaction to my coming, He didn't know I could get out and so things yet. So today was wonerful for me and you. hugs sweetie.

I got to talk (on the phone) with my best friend today--she lives in CT. I haven't seen her since 2007 and we made plans that I'll come down for her birthday. That made me smile, but what made me laugh and smile was when she asked me if I'd bought "real" shoes for my upcoming trip to Chicago--we both wear Birkenstocks but she didn't think I should wear my "cartoony" dog Birkie clogs while I am attending the working group meetings...(we are twins separated at birth--the two of us make the same hand gestures, talk the same, and like and dislike the same things--drives her husband crazy...he can't get over how alike we are...I threaten to move in with him if she dies before she does since he's already trained...).

I giggled for two hours on Friday--the DH who has four degrees has to take an IQ test to qualify to do a two-week contract for the government...The guy can do complex math in his head, has a photographic memory, and an extensive vocabulary...I giggle every time I think about it. I downloaded the sample test for him...told him he'd better study...of course, the irony is that when he was 5 yrs. old, the school told his mother he was "retarded" and should be in a 'special' school...I guess that "assessment" is still part of his record if the government needs him to take an IQ test...(he's a man of few words, and as a child, didn't play with the other children in kindergarten--he thought it was boring and a waste of time...). His mother had to drag him to school every day...

PS--I will be wearing my Woodbys on the plane http://www.amazon.com/Birkis-Womens-.../dp/B000XR7MQK

This isn't nearly so cool as some of the recent posts, but it did make me smile. Coming home for lunch a couple of days ago ( yes I am lucky I get to come home from work for lunch everyday). I happened to see two little girls (maybe 5 or 6 years old) playing in a yard, now we have had alot of rain the last couple of weeks......and these girls were playing in a mud hole that must have been 8 ft across not just a mud puddle, a "mud lolly" as my mother would say. The funniest bit to me was that they were wearing shorts and no shoes and looked like those women in mud wrestling competitions on tv, they were covered in mud from head to toe! It did seem odd to me however that their parents allowed this behavior when it was only 48F! But I stifled that thought and tried to remember being that age and how much fun they must have been having! Seems none of us can wait for Spring!

Somebunny, that is a wonderful smile! Reminds me of my little dog, Joie - he hates to get wet, but there is a mud puddle a mile away he will scout it out and lie in it! At the dog park they can be pretty big and so he ends up being a total black dog instead of black and white! And his fir just soaks it all up. But like the girls, he has fun!

LP, now that just made me smile! Our dear departed Cocker Spaniel loved to roll in mud, especially right after a bath! Lol!

Luckytrim's Sunday Special quiz made me smile because it brought back some great memories - Back to the Future, John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band (which brought back Eddie and The Cruisers) and after a little thinking, Murphy Brown!

My fuzzy, brown alarm clock, Latte'...she would not leave me alone this morning, even laying on my back when I flopped all the way over. Of course she was purring the whole time, hard to be grouchy when someone loves you that much.
