A new look and
A Terabyte of storage.....

Do you see him?
Straddling the handle bar?
Trying to look all MACHO?
And non-chalant at the same time?
Contrary to popular opinion....
Freddie ain't dead....
(sorry for the 70's song reference, I couldn't help myself)
Well, anyway....I was minding my own bee's wax one day,
visiting the local grocery, and there he was.....
bobbing his head up and down,
showing me that
scarlet neck of his.....
strutting his stuff all over town.
(well actually all over the handle bar)
Letting me know he was AVAILABLE
A CATCH of the FIRST order.....
I had to stifle my laughter,
didn't want to embarras him....no,
I am sure that some sweet thing came over as soon as I left the
Soon, there will be little freddies all over the grocery parking lot!~

26 February 2013
You know the type....
where you wake up at 2:57am and
cannot go back to sleep?
where you are having your first cup o' joe
and you hear something odd in the bathroom
down in the guest room?
it turns out to be a sewage back up?
where you are afraid to take a shower and make the
sewer back up worse.....so you go down to your office
and start on much delayed work......and
(wait for it....)
you notice that the floor under your desk is damp?
No, ....make that soaking wet?
(thank goodness it wasn't sewage)
Rain coming in from the other side of the foundation wall!
You know, the one that was taken completely back to the studs
JUST LAST YEAR...
water proofing (?) painted on the cider blocks, Drywall replaced,
interior paint whole room, new shoe molding.....
where you go to get your handy dandy carpet cleaner
to SUCK up the water out of the carpet in your office,
and EVERY SINGLE CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT BOX
is between you and the carpet cleaner....
where you finally get the carpet cleaner out of the closet
and start the SUCKING of water.....
and after emptying the reservoir several times
it doesn't seem to be getting any drier?
that's the day I have been having.
I think I will go take a nap...

We all want it....
We search for it...
We pray for it....
We would do just about anything to find it....
I think this sums it up;
I will love you no matter what.
I will love you if you are stupid,
if you slip and fall on your face,
if you do the wrong thing,
if you make mistakes,
if you behave like a human being -
I will love you no matter.
(I miss Leo B. tremendously)
(especially in Valentines Day....)
my sweetie and I were talking to a young man this morning
about replacing a window
(our BAKW, as a matter of fact)
and he noticed the
roses that were sitting on the kitchen table.
He stopped and said
"Would you like to hear the sweetest story I have ever heard?"
This was the very las thing I expected to hear out of a window salesman.
So he started to tell us the story of his wife's grandfather who died
approximately 2 weeks ago...
close enough that family were still staying with her grandmother.
Yesterday. the doorbell rang and there was the florist with
roses for grandma, from grandad.....
bought months ago,
paid in advance,
for years to come,
the card read;
"I will love you, eternally"
A sweet story, but I have heard something like this before,
(the cynic in me said...)
Then I looked up at him,
and he said to us
"The best thing about this story is that when my wife told me this,
she said "That is exactly how I want you to love me"
And as he shifted in his shoes,
"And that is exactly what I am going to do, because I am the luckiest man in the world"
Now, that part of the story is what choked me up....
