creative, that is so funny in such a sad way. There are days I wish the man a lingering case of laryngitis.

The last thing that made me smile was meeting a young woman at the Danish Club Luncheon. She's half Canadian and half indigenous from Greenland. She looks like she could be my daughter.

Just as I was ready to log off, I heard our local pair of great horned owls doing a call-and-answer. They have to be at least a half-mile from our house, but we can hear them loud and clear even with the windows closed. Since it's in the low-50s outside right now, I opened the 2nd floor guest bedroom window, leaned out, and rested my hands on the porch roof, just so I could get the best sound available. Good thing I'm not crazy enough to crawl onto the roof!

If you wonder how they sound, here is a link to sound clips. Right now they are into a full version of "Territorial hooting duet".

Fluffy down pillows.


These things are ancient. I know one was my Dad's, and he's been gone 24 years. I think the other was one of my pillows from when I was young, but recently Himself had been using it until it got way too flat. I washed them up with down "detergent", then dried and dried and dried them in the dryer. Over three hours of "clunk-clunk-clunk", listening to the large plastic "snowflakes" that came in the down cleaning kit, used to break up any clumps while a down something is in the dryer. If down filling clumps and doesn't dry thoroughly, it will go moldy. Yuck. Anyway, two pillows down, two to go.

Now it's time I logged off and nestled my head into those fluffy clouds that are my pillows. Good night!

I want my old down pillows fluffy again too CG!! I didn't know a product existed for this. Pleeeeeeeeze tell me what it's called and where you got it? I have some old ones in the closet I'd love to be able to use again.
There's no way I could ever sleep without a down pillow. I even take one packed in my suitcase when we travel.

A school puts on a nativity play... the 3 wise men shuffle on to the stage.

First one shouts out "I BRING YOU GOLD!" and hands Mary a shiny parcel.

2nd wise man dutifully follows with "I bring you myrhh"......then there is a pause.

3rd wise man is looking nervous. He gets nudged and blurts out "and Frank sent this"

I was at a local mall Monday. I was walking down the main aisle heading out to the parking lot when I saw two young women. One was carrying the cutest little girl (well under a year old). She was wearing a pretty velvet dress and had a decorative headband and a great big smile. I was so taken by her I broke out in a big grin. The two young women saw me and grinned in return.
