What with the two dowagers on Downton and lots of other examples, this may turn out to be a LOL year! (Little Old Ladies) We're in a pretty big club. Huzzah!

If the writing stays as good as it has been and Shirley delivers her lines like only she can, this is going to be one heck of a season.

I'm teaching the little guy how to swim--he goes crazy over REAL eggs, but is afraid of water. We had an underwater tea party today. He's liking how I get him in the water...he has also (at the age of 8) agreed to take care of me in my old age if I can teach him how to swim. He was so funny--didn't want to get in the pool but when I asked him if he'd like to have an underwater tea party, he was all in. So cute and all in.

I heard a reviewer's opinion that Season 3's writing is even better than 1 & 2.

Do you remember in Terms of Endearment Shirley's delivery when Jack Nicholson as an astronaut is giving her a come-on line, and she gives him a steely-eyed look, and interrupts him with "Blah, blah, blah." Stops him dead in his tracks. My fave.

Don't you love that moment when he gets home and all is right with the world again. I just love that first embrace at the end of a long day apart.

I have two ear-to-ear smiles today.

The first goes to Pacanis for his "thank you notifications" thread and all the people who have responded. I specially like the comment that he started the thread because he didn't think he was getting enough thanks! We love you Pac, thanks for the smile and for being you!

The second smile goes to my awesome hubby, TB. He got up extra early today to take me to the dentist for my root canal, went to the auto store (Canadian Tire for those who know it) and got me both windshield washer fluid and a new wiper blade. He was able to fix the arm himself and installed everything for me. He also took the dogs for an extra long second walk so I could get some rest, and wanted to do my grocery shopping for me too (instead I told him to have an hour nap before he had to leave for work). He is definitely a keeper!

Hoping the smile feels better now after your root canal, LP! Glad it went well, along withthe rest!

+1 TB used to ask why I waited up until midnight for him to come home from work even when I am really tired. I would tell him to give me a hug and kiss and then I will answer and he finally realized that was the reason!
