The best part of my day involved a shot of ice cold tequila and a romp on the down comforter with my best friend. Sorry, there will not be any photos of this activity.
Another bright spot in my day was the call I made to my nephew Taylor who turned 15 today. Let this be known – It is always worth the effort to extend good wishes no matter what the excuse or pretext.
And then there was the hour or so Bob and I spent outside paying our dues to the Yard God, raking and shoveling, sweating and getting bit by mosquitoes and Texas Chiggers. Our efforts were well rewarded with the satisfaction of a job well done. As an additional bonus, I received a visible badge of courage – a line of itchy chigger bites extending from my right hip bone to the top of my camisole.
