I was helping my 9 year old grandson Josh clean out his school folder before he left for school this morning when I found a certificate with his picture on it. I knew that he had been made student of the month but I had not seen this paper. On top it said LEADER OF THE MONTH. Underneath it said " Josh's teacher can tell that he is listening to her and to speakers when they are talking because of his body language. He is attending with eyes, ears and head. If he is confused, he always asks questions. He did just that during a math lesson. He asked for some help after the teacher taught the lesson. After he finished his work he then understood so well he offered to help others."
With everything this little guy has been through, he is so special and I am very proud of him.

Is it an itchy dress?

Oh my! that is totally awesome!

I am smiling already and I haven't even done my secret Santa bit yet. I am waiting for Dad to settle in bed before I make my move.

I mentioned in the summer that I was in shock because my upstairs neighbour had a heart attack and died three days after telling me he felt the best he had for months. I had an unfortunate birds eye view of all the emergency vehicles and finally the coroner. His young nephew lived with him and was there when it happened. He is a very nice young man who has been through a lot. The family arranged it so he can stay in the suite and his Uncle willed him his car. He has been driving around with a very ratty Canucks flag and just recently took it off. I have several and have wrapped one up in Christmas paper, a bow and no card.

I have a key to the upstairs entrance so I am going to sneak up and place the package by his door so he gets it when he gets home from work, around midnight. I am not telling anyone, even Dad or DH, so there is no chance my identity can be traced.

My deed is done! I would love to be a fly on the wall of the hallway when he finds it . But I really want to remain totally anonymous. It is so much more fun!

Oh yeah, for those who don't know, the Canucks are our hockey team and like me, this young man is an avid fan! We shared tears and cheers during the play-offs last year!

If he does, yes I will confess, but I am not leaving any hints
