You've never heard of grapefruit? Or grapefruit spoons? We had those when I was a kid.

grapefruit spoons. I had no clue about them until a lady I work with was using one. Another lady had a bunch of them and gave me one haha

My little Johan makes me smile. When I take him out of his ball, I put him on my chest and let him run a bit. He always takes a bite of my shirt and tries to take it into the ball with him- while I'm wearing it!

When I got him, I had cut a piece out of an old t-shirt as a bankie. It helps the animal get to know your smell so it gets used to you faster. His old one was so worn that I threw it out a long time ago. I had another shirt get ruined at work this week, so I made him a new bankie. I came home this morning, and he was sleeping cuddled up to it.

So cute. Just when I need a reason to go on, my little guy comes through for me. :wub:

awww... little Yo-man, he's a sweetie, for sure. So glad you have your little companion, Karen. He sounds so adorable. :)

Not working today makes me happy. I have to go tomorrow, but at least, I have today!!

This poem:

The Orange by Wendy Cope

At lunchtime I bought a huge orange -
The size of it made us all laugh.
I peeled it and shared it with Robert and Dave -
They got quarters and I had a half.

And that orange, it made me so happy.
As ordinary things often do
Just lately. The shopping. A walk in the park.
This is peace and contentment. It's new.

The rest of this day was quite easy.
I did all the jobs on my list
And enjoyed them and had some time over.
I love you. I'm glad I exist.

We're going to Disney World in a couple of weeks, which is more than enough to be happy about, but I just got an email from them saying they're giving us a free upgrade from the Value hotel we were staying at to a Deluxe villa hotel! So we're going from a standard motel-type room to one with a bedroom, living room and full kitchen!

Have fun Jenny!!!!!

I was so happy today. I was sound asleep and the alarm went off. I so didn't want to get up and go to work, but then I realized that I had the day off and I had set the alarm so I wouldn't miss my favourite show. Waking up on a day off makes me VERY happy!

Have a great day, Karen! I am at the office, alone... but at least the traffic was non-existent, since the rest of the city apparently does have the day off.

Happy MLK Day!

I actually sat down and read the transcript of the I have a dream speech my Martin Luther King, Jr. I've read bits of it and seen outtakes, but never really read the whole thing. I found it quite moving.

It's kind of close to home for me since he was a close friend of
my dad's cousin
Bobby.
