I like the laughter that opens the lips and the heart,
that shows at the same time pearls and the soul.

I could not think of a better way to celebrate the Day of Love then to share the gift of smiles. Random 5 Friday with Nancy seemed to be that perfect way.
1- So Bossy2 seems to be smitten with my hat, after I let her wear it and take a few photos that one day she now seems to think it is hers. While bending over to pick up a stick lying in the snow she snatched it off my head so I pulled it out of her slobbery wet mouth and placed it on her head then she wanted me to take her photo. This is not looking good; I seemed to have created a Diva.
2- I tried the same thing with Red and tried to convince her that she would look so beautiful in it and she could also be famous. Her reply “It is Bossy2’s hat” I had a feeling this sharing thing was not going to work. I placed that wet hat on my head and continued on my way wondering if Red was waiting out for a better hat. All I have to say is that it is a slippery slope.
3- Late last fall I had gathered up all those Black Walnuts that tend to bounce off your head on those windy days and blanket our yard. The plan was to take them in the house and dry them for the winter. Well it seems life had gotten in my way and I never did pick up that last container. I watch as a Red Squirrel sticks his head out of a crack in the chicken coop wall, looks around and then scampers across the snow and disappears down a supply tunnel in the snow only to turn up a hundred feet away right in front of that container of nuts. He grabbed one turns to look at me and smiles, then disappears once again down the supply tunnel hole and heads back to the chicken coop. This is now a daily occurrence. You’re Welcome.
4- I have convinced My Hero that I have found the secret to curing the flu. I had him drinking a concoction made of lemon juice, lime juice and a whole lot of honey that I keep in a jug in the refrigerator and I make him eat a whole lot of sauerkraut in our daily soups. He is now cured and you may now call me Dr. Buttons. Who knew?
5- I was carded today. Do you remember being carded when you were young and trying to get any alcoholic beverage? If you were under 19 here in Canada or looked younger they always carded you or so I have heard, not that I would know anything about that. Well that was not a big deal but I was actually carded at a Value Village thrift store while buying a bag of yarn. The reason was it was 20% off Seniors Day and the girl (who after this episode in front of total strangers I really wanted to hug) could not believe that I was over 60. After I showed her my driver’s license she still could not believe it. I have to tell you this made my day, I actually skipped out the door with smile on my face and possibly if this 100% wool makes me itch, a huge bag that cost $11 of new hat wool for a certain Red Cow, not mentioning any names.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone and BA I do hope this made you laugh. BA is my best friend since we were five years old and she is sitting at home waiting and healing. BA has an important message that she would like to share with everyone out there and if you have a little time check back for Monday’s post.
