I'm just happy to have had a whole night's sleep, waking up at 5:45 and spending my morning with a cuppa coffee and catching up on all my friends on DC.

I've laughed at some of the posts. What a great way to start my day! Thanks to all of you!

I'm thankful for this thread......thanks Z.

Well, this is a big day. We are going to Las Vegas for a quiet private wedding ceremony in front of the beautiful fountain in front of the Bellagio Hotel on Saturday.


Let me back up. My wonderful husband of three years, has finally repaired his torn relationship with his 40 year old son. It's a too long story, but his son really never knew his dad, because of his bitter mother. What a shame for this father and son, for all these wasted years.

Anyway, Andy (the son) called today and asked us to come to Vegas so Steve (my husband, his father) can be his "best man". I could cry for them, it is such a wonderful thing. It will just be the four of us, and very simple, in front of this beautiful fountain.
Is there anything more wonderful than love?

He's adorable, PF!!

More good news today!! I needed my head examined. No doubt, some would say.
Seriously, I had a brain MRI plus a die job, on Monday trying to figure out these blamed headaches. Dr. called with the results this morning, and said the tests were clear. I think he could have worded that better myself.

Anyway, now I can take off for Vegas with a clear head. Wooo Hoooooo

My happy vent is that thanks to a couple of TV marathons of shows I could stand, my "lapghan" is now long enough to reach my ankles and keeps my legs warm while I'm working on it. It's about 5' wide and now is over 3' long. I won't have to turn on the heat for awhile yet, and that keeps the electric bill down.

There is a Law & Order marathon on today so it'll keep me busy, and warm all day.

Thanks Kayelle, we think he's special! We haven't seen them for about three years, so getting the vidoes is nice.

So glad you're MRI turned out good, Have fun in Vegas!

I have enjoyed reading this happy thread from the start and thank you to all who have posted here. Good idea Zhizara

Kayelle, I was wondering where you were as I hadn't seen you posting. So I went to your profile and looked for your last post and found this (not your last but close). I loved the fountain video and that's one of my favorite pieces of music. I assume the voices are Andrea Bocelli and Susan Brightman and singing "Time to Say Goodbye". I have never seen this set to the fountains though and that was a real treat! I'm glad your MRI was clear...phew

And Princess...is Noah your grandson? He is cute as a button. I just reread the last post and see that he is. He looks like you!

Thanks MA. I mentioned it in my venting post, but wasn't going to do it, but several others encouraged me. I'm glad I did too.

Yes, he is my Grandson, but we are not blood relation, his father is my middle Stepson... Thank you, I am very proud of him, he is a shining light. And he really looks like Shrek, when Shrek was that age.
