I too am proud of you, your Ogreness! You are such an example for me as I start my training next Friday for the Terry Fox Run (walking) in September. And coming in fifth from the beginning or end doesn't matter - what counts is YOU DID IT!!!!!!

Yesterday's Royal Wedding. I'm a hopeless romantic and I loved every minute of it. Her dress put a big grin on my face....what a beautiful bride.
In light of nearly every single wedding gown I've seen being strapless these days, hers was just gorgeous. I'm sure she wouldn't have been allowed to wear a strapless gown however, but I sure hope future brides get a loud clue that strapless is just not appropriate in any church anywhere. What a breath of fresh air!!

I think you and Laurie both deserve a big BRAVA you both have so much to give and you do. I'm hoping that one day I'll be able to walk a small mile to begin walking right now is still work but I can say I'm feeling like I could beat a big bad Ogre
Way to go you two.

Today I heard a noise in my kitchen. I went to investigate and found a squirrel attmpting to make off with a bag of chocolate chips! I taught that squirrel a few new words and then felt bad when he dropped the bag of chips. As I was cleaning up the mess he returned to see if the coast was clear! The thing that amazes me is that I live on the third floor and the window has a screen, with a new hole in it. This whole thing was better than an episode of Wild America.

Aunt Bea, that brought a smile to my face and a lot of memories. When we lived in our little bungalow on a huge lot with trees all around, we had many squirrels all over the place but we had one that was either brave or stupid. We would throw peanuts out into the yard for them but this guy came right up to our patio door and paw at it! We gave him a couple of nuts and he kept coming back for more...So we nicknamed him Oliver. He had very distinct colouring so we knew it was the same one. When DH and I got married under the apple tree Oliver even crashed the party by coming onto our porch while we were grilling steaks. Our guest list was small - our two attendants and a squirrel!

In the end it is only the memories that we have. That is a hard thing for the young ones to understand.
