Just sitting here at the computer and noticed out the window, in the big tree in our backyard, a woodpecker. When all of a sudden a beautiful Cardinal landed almost right next to him. So special to see them both up so close.

While I admire and appreciate the drug-sniffing dogs, this is so much kinder and gentler.

I loved watching that. What a sweet dog.

The young woman whom we have taken in several times over the years and we are now helping out with her two children who were traumatized by their father, called me last night to tell me that TB and I are the only ones who have stuck by her no matter how much her kids have acted up and how bad things have looked in her life. Considering we had to use tough love and kick her and her new husband at the time out of our house, this was something wonderful to hear. She totally agrees with what we did back then and wishes she could have seen what was happening (all of us have 20/20 hindsight).

The smile that came across my face when she said this was a little bittersweet. Not because I didn't find her sincere, she completely was. It was the fact that she couldn't say that about her own parents and other family members. And even people from her church are not helping.

I love this young mother as if she was my own daughter and these kids as my grandchildren. They may be hard to handle, but when they run and give me a big hug, I melt.

This little family gives me smiles just thinking about them.

Got my order today from Amazon. I ordered a small pocker radio, an Amish Christmas Cookbook, a book called Tales Of Mystery and The Supernatural and a jar of Bacon Salt that buckytom told me about. I had to order it because there wasn't any here in the stores were I live. I used it on my sandwich today and it was very good.

Last thing that made you smile?

Seeing Steve Martin doing "King Tut" on a SNL redux!
