So true Charlie. The Soviet years were never kind on anyone. Between the five year plan and then some other plan, and still not enough food to feed the people. Yeah, we heard all about it here. And the news was never good for the people. I remember one year the headlines told about us shipping grain to the Soviet.

Just got off the phone with my best friend from my college years, eons ago. It's her birthday tomorrow, and I looked with horror at the card on my coffee table that I forgot to send. So I tried the other old fashioned way.

You know how, with some people, you just pick up where you left off, and it doesn't matter how long it's been since you last saw them? It's like that with her. We were partners in crime and roommates, and I love her to pieces!

Pretty rose, GG, and a sweet DH. It looks a lot like the Tropicana roses my Mom grew in the 1960s. BTW, did he snitch it from your garden...or someone else's.

Went to Target today and there were two teenage boys helping their younger brother buy his school supplies. One had the cart and the other was helping his brother with the list. So heartwarming and such nice young people. They even stopped to chat with me . Adorable!

The last thing to make me smile today was having my grandson call from Paris, France and thanking us for his birthday card and gift.He is a barista in Paris but is thinking of starting up his own cafe in the Netherlands. I sure hope everything works out for him.

Your grandson is quite the globe-trotter, isn't he JoAnn? What a great experience his life must be.

I smiled big when the cashier asked if I wanted to use any of my "Fetch" points when she was ringing me out. Turns out I got a half-pint of groceries and two bunches of broccolini for free. Free is good! Those raspberries will taste all that much sweeter, too.
