I was watching one of my great-grandsons this morning and on one of the cartoons we were watching there was a shooting star. I asked him if he ever saw a shooting star and he said yes he did. He said that he wished to be cooler and happened ( he is 9 years old). He is such a sweet little guy, I don't know how he could be any cooler.

I remember my first experience of a shooting star (it was quite recent). Call me niaive but I didn't realise it would just be a small white streak across the night sky...I was at least expecting the tail to have a star on it (like the cartoon)!

I'm cracking up! A very young couple who live in Cozumel asked for suggestions on FB for a date night scavenger hunt. A bunch of us had a lot of suggestions, like a balloon hat, coconut ice cream, a person painted as a statue, all sorts of things. The couple is posting pics as they go through the scavenger hunt, and it's adorable!

Last thing that made you smile?

I am so trying this on our next trip!

We have friends who live there year round, as well as other friends who also are frequent visitors.

We're old and creaky, but I think we may be able to find the good stuff!

The kids were able to take a picture of more than three people on one scooter as a challenge! Dang, I'm dying here...

Smile

A child viewing football and then saying "why don't they give them all a ball...then they wouldn't have to fight?"

I average 10 miles of walking/running each day and it makes me smile to go to bed knowing that I'm keeping fit.

Seeing my eight year old great grandson's face light up when I told him he was greater than his father. His father was only a grandson. But he is a GREAT grandson, three times. His maternal grandparents and me. Anyone can be a grandson, but not every one is a GREAT one.

I think I just opened up a can of worms. And his father is going to kill me for sure. I am such a trouble maker.
