My day was not as expected, since I'd hoped/planned to be outside because it was sunny and dry.

However, early in the day I was on a quest to find something. And, as Buck always said, I'm like a dog with a bone when something is lost or missing.

I just knew what I as looking for was in our upstairs office, so that's where I went.

Well, after 6 hours and 3 small crates later, I didn't find what I was looking for, but I had a great glimpse into Buck's life. I knew him most of his adult life, but I learned wonderful things about his childhood and his early school years. I touched his grade school, middle school, high school and college diplomas. I now have his college graduation tassel hanging near me.

He was a professional photographer/filmmaker, so there are boxes full of negatives and reels of photographic footage. It will take me forever to go through it all.

It was an exhausting day and I never found what I initially began looking for. However, I did get great insight into what made "Buck," become "Buck."

After what I saw today, it just proved he was "one in a million!"

Oh Katie, I think you found exactly what you were looking for.
I know your day was exhausting and I'd be willing to bet you'd have not had it any other way.
And Katie, you are one in a million

well i didn't do what was on my list either. sewing is what i should have done. however am being given a free sofa. it is in good shape but am not crazy about the cover. so spent hours looking on line for bargains in slipcovers and shipping. found two so will just have to make a decision between the two. both are blue striped.

then got bogged down looking a freezers. freight is the big factor there. so no results, i could live with

then went to target i think for sheets. found with 97cent shipping . otherwise i might just as well go to the store. although on line will see things not available in stores.

my brain is getting numb. so dishes and a new book soon for me.

hope all had a great week-end.

babe
