Which reminds me of the smile previous - I got to hold a 10 day old baby who is 6 weeks premature and doing marvelous! His Mom, one of the girls I have mentored over the years put him in my arms and said "this is your Grandma". Okay, smiles and tears of joy!

Awww. I loved reading all the grandchildren stories - brought a smile to my face.

My two daughters have pretty much bombarded me with grandchildren all at once. 3 years ago I had none, now I have 5 and another on the way. I inherited two precious little grands when my youngest daughter married, he has 2 from a previous marriage. The next year, both my daughters were pregnant at the same time so my 2 youngest grands (almost 2 years old now) are only a few weeks apart in age. Oldest daughter had another one since then, and is now expecting her third. Youngest daughter is done. haha.

Both daughters waited until they were married and could afford kids, I am so very thankful for that. lol

Thank you. Sometimes I think I might go overboard with the smilies.

I was listening to oldies comedy on Pandora radio on the computer while I boxed things up at school. Abbot & Costello's who's on first routine came on. I couldn't work for laughing. I don't know how many hundred times I've heard it but it always cracks me up.

I need a new thing to make me smile, ripping tape off of Shrek is getting old.

But, and a big smile here...his wound is healing very well with lots of new skin and tissue growth.

That is a great memory of my childhood. My best friend's Dad (and mine too) loved that routine and I hung out at their house a lot (and my friend at ours so we just called each others' parents Mom and Dad) and we would all get into the Who's on First Skit. We would roar with laughter. Both Dads knew the whole routine by heart!

Thanks, Cindercat for the memory!

The last thing that made me smile was seeing our Lemon Curd Tart work out perfectly

I will take some photos soon and put them on to show you all
