It's Friday!

(via PDA)

Sitting in a coffee shop near the house that has free Wi-Fi and thought I'd post something. The trouble is that there isn't much to post about 'quickly'.

However, there is something that most would agree upon: it's Friday!!

I hope yawl have a great weekend...the Girl Scouts kick off their annual GS Cookie sales on Saturday, so I'll be helping the munchkin.

(SAN DIEGO READERS: If you'd like to order any, call me!!)

A Pleasant Reminder

I had a pleasant reminder from my wife, both yesterday evening and tonight when she walked in right before dinner.

The reminder was that January 15th was the two year anniversary of my brush with death.

Last night (Tuesday evening), she reminded me that it was this day two years ago when I had my stroke. I stopped doing whatever it was that I was doing at that moment, thought about it for a moment and said "Yeah....you're right". And then again this evening she did it again. She had just walked in the door from work and I was telling her that I'd be starting dinner in a few minutes (hot dogs and/or chili dawgs....I hadn't decided) and she turned to our daughter and asked her "where should we take Daddy to celebrate his anniversary?" As it turned out, we went to Olive Garden where I had my favorite Italian dish, chicken parmigiana. Ah....it was heaven.

So anyways....it's been two years.

It's a little hard to believe that it really happened, but I've got the titanium (I think they're titanium) screws in my head to prove it really did happen. (That's the one upside.....I get to tell people that I'm totally METAL!!!)
