Places I've Been

Places I’ve Been

I have been in many places, but I’ve never been in Cahoots.  Apparently, you can’t go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.

I’ve also never been in Cognito.  I hear no one recognizes you there.

I have however been in Sane.  They don’t have an airport; you have to be driven there.  I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I’m not too much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt.  This is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often.

I’ve been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.

Sometimes, I’m in Capable.. and I go there more often as I’m getting older.

One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense!  It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart.  At my age, I need all the stimuli I can get!

And sometimes,  I still think I’m in Vincible… but life shows me I’m just not!!

Have a splendid Labor Day holiday everyone!

I stole a day to myself last week, and was just relaxing on the beach when this big fat fluffball jumped onto my lap! ♥♥♥

Today, my family celebrated in the marriage of my niece.  It was one of those picture perfect days, and I was so glad it turned out to be such a nice one for the bride and groom.



Her Dad walked her down the aisle and gave her away, as custom.  And in his left breast pocket he carried a copy of his wife’s obituary… keeping her memory close to his heart.  At one point during the service, the officiant said, “Let us pause for a moment, and in this quiet space, listen for [ bride’s mother’s ] joy that she is surely sending us right now in spirit.”  It was an emotional moment for many of us, and my niece started crying a bit.

As she recomposed herself, she looked up at me and I gave her a wink….

Through tearful eyes, she looked up to the sky and then gave me the biggest smile.

Their vows exchanged, the bride was kissed, and the well wishers raised their glasses to toast the happy new couple.

My sister would have been extremely happy for her daughter today… I know I was.
