I am finding so many memories while going through my Dad's room. He kept EVERY card that we every gave him and I cried and laughed going through the pile seeing the ones I made by hand and the bought ones right back to when I was little!

I know just what you mean, Laurie. When my brother and I went through Daddy's desk drawers in his office, the large bottom drawer had nothing but our letters back to Santa/Rudolph, our baby teeth we left for the Tooth Fairy, handmade cards of all manner. It was bittersweet but lovely.

I took the nicest of the Santa letters that each of my siblings wrote and decoupaged them and gave them to them as a Christmas gift the first Christmas after Daddy died.

I was only 24 the, the oldest, and the rest were 10 years or so younger, so they have had those little tidbits of their affection preserved forever.

I have my baby teeth in a small velvet pouch in my jewelry box. They'll have been there 40 years next year.

I'm smiling just like the Cheshire Cat because our Kentucky Wildcats just won the NCAA Tournament. I can smile, but I can't speak because I've spent the evening shouting, yelling, cheering, and (yes) cursing. I'm a nut when it comes to round ball.

The first half was a real bunch of excellent playing and ACTION and the second quarter was a barn-burner of mixed plays, sloppy playing (on both sides) and close plays. I'm spent.

Go Cats!!!!!:clap :

After party? I wasn't invited to any of the parties and I'm not much of a party person.

It's sad. I saw the news reports of the problems in Lexington after the Cats won the game before the BIG one.

We have a daughter and her family who live in Lexington and she reported all the carryings on. She related that if and when the Cats won the BIG one, the Lexington police were ready for any mayhem that might transpire.

Too bad folks can't just enjoy a victory and have a trouble-free good time.
