Up all night with a puppy. What was I thinking of. I'm fond of old sayings that grow on you.
They laughed when I said I wanted to be a comedian.Well, they're not laughing now.
The Daily Grind
One of things I am eternally thankful for is when I stumble out to the kitchen first thing in the morning and pour a cup of coffee and grab a banana and go back to bed to wake up properly. I am beyond thrilled that we have an automatic coffee maker with a timer so that I don't have to do this old school. You know, chop wood, gather kindling, build a fire, boil water, add coffee grounds and pour mud into a tin cup 45 minutes later. I'm also thankful for our electric range.
"Most people love their friends, family and country; if there is any love left over it usually goes to Mark Twain."
