Did you all enjoy your extra long weekend & catch up on your much needed rest? I'm referring to Saturday, that looong day. If you don't know what I'm talking about (& people rarely do) there was a leap second inserted between 11:59:59 pm & midnight. I hope you took advantage of it!
“Take a frown & turn it upside down”--isn’t that so cute you could just “fwow up”? But--you CAN make a bad situation better!
When Matt was about 8, a friend of ours had to have part of his colon removed. Matt (our comedian in training) asked if that meant he would be left with a semicolon.
I was about 3 & my brother 5 when my grandfather took us to the park. Grandpa was sitting on a bench, reading a newspaper, while my brother & I went to feed the ducks in the lake. I leaned over a smidge too far & fell in. My brother ran to get our grandfather & before they could get back, a stranger had pulled me out. I developed a fear of the water & didn’t learn to swim until I was a teenager. On one of our first trips to Hawaii, Bud & I went swimming with dolphins. The Kahala Hilton Hotel had a large lagoon which was used as a “storehouse” for the local Sea World. It was fun—more so for Bud than me. Dolphins are much too fast to catch. To interact with them, you had to float quietly until they came up to you. I couldn’t float—he could. He was able to grab a dorsal fin & the dolphin took him for a ride! I was so jealous that when we got home I took swimming lessons at the YMCA.
An even better dolphin encounter: Our son, Blake, is a
drug dealer rep
for a pharmaceutical company. He won a
contest at work. The prize—I AM SO
JEALOUS—was private time with the dolphins for him & his wife at facility
in Florida! Below is a video of their
session. It looks like so much fun!!
