I just got the fill for the ambulance ride I took a few weeks ago. Why am I smiling about that?

There is a note in it saying "paid in full by your good buddy V...."

This is a paramedic friend of ours who wasn't even on the call, but read on Facebook from TB about my ordeal. He called TB and was ticked that the paramedics who picked me up made we walk to the "bus" and then sit up when it turned out I had a serious condition. So, he went to billing and forked out the $80.00 for me. I did a promo video for him and a buddy a few years ago for a group they were putting together to help in disaster relief. So, I guess he returned the favour!

That is precious! And he is right in time to the music. I could follow him anytime when singing. Thanks for the smile!

What a sweet friend! Well, I guess it's your turn now to "get even" with V! This could go on for a long time!

Many years ago there was a story in Reader's Digest "Life in These United States.

With five kids in the house and all of them in their teens, you would often here her claim, "All I want is a moment of peace and quiet." It was her birthday and as usual there was the normal din going on. All of a sudden at six o'clock in the evening, the house went totally quiet. Not a sound. Then it dawned on her. The family was giving her the moment of peace and quiet she craved.

I'm reminded of something from when I was a kid.

My mum and a friend and me & my sister and mum's friend's kid went shopping. We went to a lot of stores. We got back to the friend's house and us kids wanted to play with each other.
"Mommy, can we stay and play?"
"Only if her mother isn't too tired."
"Are you tired Mommy?"
"I'm not tired. I'm pooped!"
"Oh goody! Mommy isn't tired. She's just pooped."

I swear these animals understand us. I got off the phone with TB - he is coming home early (I'm actually going to pick him up as he is not well) and I never said anything out loud in the house, just talking to him. Monkey is in my window looking intently towards his parking spot and Violet is by the front closet where her leash is kept (he walks her when he gets home. It's not a timing thing because the time change put that out of kilter and TB isn't due home until around 5 pm.

Go figure! They sure make me smile!
