On the other had I had a couple of sheep that could talk. Not real words but syllables. Maybe they were French too?

Evidently there are a lot of breeds that are more 'vocal'.

PF, I saw that on Facebook. You have to be pretty good at playing an instrument normally to be able to joke around so well.

I had a nice little smile moment when I came home this afternoon with a pile of bags in tow.

We have a small table just inside the doorway that we keep our reusable grocery bags on as a reminder to take them to the vehicles. I opened the door and saw a little ball of black fur curled up on the bags that were there. Monkey usually tries to get out when we come or go but usually on the ground. I don't know if she had been there the whole time or what, but it was a nice greeting for sure. She even stayed there while I went back out for a second load.

Yup, "interesting PF" here too!

Last thing that made me smile was my doctor's visit. I'm good for another six months, and that's only because he likes me to show up when we review my meds every six months even though he could probably call me instead. Doesn't care how he spends my money. But every time I go to the doc's or have blood work done I think of how very lucky and blessed I am that I am pretty healthy for a senior.

I hear ya CG. Loud and clear. I am due for my six month checkup this month. I may gripe about it, but it is a total checkup. Every person there gets to take a poke at me. From PT to my doctor and two home visits from the PT department to see how I am able to do my own housework to the nurse to make sure I understand how to take my meds. I also have an eye appointment. I already saw my vascular doctor. Now on to the cardio doc. Then I have to decide what I want to do about having my gall bladder removed. If I decide to have it done, then it will involve a conference of five different doctors making the decision, can my heart take the stress of the anesthesia.

My latest smile is again from my fur kids.

I got up very early this morning and came back to not only find they had both taken up my space on the bed, but their paws were intertwined with each other. They may duke it out for attention, but they do care for each other.

I didn't have the heart to move them for an extra hour of shut-eye, so I curled up in my chair.

Exactly, that what made it so much fun, trying to figure out how much time it took them to figure it out. I'm a lefty and trying figure out how to do some things normally is a feat in itself.
