Serendipidous Surprise

Before I left to go shopping yesterday, I cleaned out my pocketbook and removed my stash of Sudoku puzzles that were getting ratty.

When I got back from shopping, I checked my mail and found that my Step-Mom had sent me a little package.

Believe it or not, it's a battery operated Sudoku game with a neat carrying case.

Talk about timing! I've got a big smile from the gift, and from the note that says everyone there is doing well.

My smile came today seeing my 60 pound border collie/boxer curl up beside my father on his small hospital bed without waking him or crowding him in any way. They slept peacefully for about 45 minutes when he woke up. He wasn't startled at all to see her there and had tears in his eyes.

One of the nurses asked if she could put Violet on the payroll to comfort other patients! I told her she is a one man dog!

Watching Shrek trying to pick up Latté and give her some loving. She had all 4 legs and tail stuck out straight and looking at me with "SAVE me" on her face.

I just found a praying mantis on a zinnia in the front yard. First one I've seen down here.

that should be listed as an example of optimism in the dictionary.

my smile today comes once again from my sprog.

i've obviously taken him out to dinner too many times. we were playing together, and when we took a cartoon break he gave me a dollar and said it was a tip for being an excellent dad. lol.

i'm going to save that dollar for the rest of my life.
