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

Money on the board!  Current total: $2

$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster.  +$5 if one scores a hat trick.

+$1 if a GWG.  +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.

$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.

The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

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.

Thanks Offsides
