That is great news. I know how both of you are feeling right now. The next time I need the good care of a good nurse, I am coming to Montana.

I have had wounds like that. Each day I would measure it with one of those sheets that have circles on it to see how much it has closed. Some days the movement was so small you almost couldn't measure it. Other days there would be a big difference.

I am doing a happy dance for you and Shrek.

My smile today was generated by a little tot sitting in a grocery cart holding in both hands a cookie as big as her head. She was gumming the heck out of it and jabbering to beat the band.

I love the little ones. I used to watch my kids out of site while they were playing. Did you know that dolls can talk up a storm? Or that toy trucks can make sounds like a real big truck?

SO and I were sitting out on the deck enjoying the nice weather when the sprinklers came on and three little kids a few doors down went wild running through the sprinklers and squealing with delight. It was a joy to see and hear!

Went to my eldest daughters for dinner today. 4 of the grand kids were there. We all sat out on their new deck and watched as the kids dove and jumped into the pool and did their version of swimming or the dog paddle. They had a ball. Smile you bet I'm still grinning much like this
