nana~ Do you live inside your computer? I'm always on here (should be painting) but you are here more than me. I'm trying to think of a way that I can paint with one hand and type with the other. This is getting bad.

Wasn't the little girl one cute? I remember that feeling well, especially the Sunday afternoon part.

diane, thanks for today's chuckle,   i resemble that remark way too much.   here's my fo paw of the evening.   the ladies from our golf club have been having once a month dinners at restaurants around town.   this month was the first time i've been home since they started them.   i e-mailed her a week late and told her i had my weeks wrong and i would be available to come was it too late to sign up.   no problem.    so tonight at 7:30, i arrived at the dinner location, two hours late.  i had the time wrong.  sam had querried earlier why they were having dinner so late and it didn't even occur to me to double check the time.  so i missed dinner, dang.    gini

Diane, this is only a little funny to me since I'm already doing these kinds of things. What will my brain be like when I really get to be a senior citizen?

Gini~

DH now keeps the calendar for both of us or I would never know where I am supposed to be and what time. He gives me a couple of days warning so I don't totally forget.

Sorry you missed your dinner....maybe they should pick you up on the way. lol
