Last thing that made you smile?

That's so sweet, Creative. So happy you're there for her.

My godfather (cousin's) daughter's husband's best man was this man. His joy for life is something that touched me to my core. His wife's devotion to him is beyond what most of us would take on knowing what was at the end of the road. I've smiled, I've laughed, I've cried as I followed her blog. I am so happy that she and her husband had the opportunity to go to Lake of the Woods and stay at the cabin where I grew up, that my mom helped build, and that was, for all of us, magic. And, I am so very sorry for her loss. He was an amazing person. As is she.


Kleenix alert.

Hard to believe, but it's the Health Connector 2.0

Seriously! I've been putting off signing up for health coverage next year because I was expecting the same kind of hell I went through last year. But no! The redesigned website worked! Well, except for a burp in the wee hours of the morning, on my first attempt. That was probably tech support doing something because no one would be on at 2:30 AM. But today, start to finish, took less than 45 minutes. The new website required ALL new everything, from establishing an account all the way through to selecting insurance. However, I did that and more...I actually was able to pay for the January premium online! I have a comfirmation number and everything. You might remember that didn't work last year either. The only "ouch" is the premium. Himself's medicare/prescription/supplemental insurances all total far less than I'm paying, and his total coverage it better than mine. But, only one year, six months, and 13 days until I get to go on Medicare too.

There is one downside: since we won't be heading into the "big city" to straighten things out in person, we won't be making a trip to our favorite Irish pub for Irish potato pizza and beer. Instead, we'll save the money from that trip to check out the Irish pub back home in OH - actually run by old friends of ours!

LOL. My 4 year old grandson's first experience with snow. He didn't quite know what to think of it.

And then he found out he could build a snowman, just like in his storybooks.
