Jeff Musial was on Jimmy Fallon tonight. He's the animal guy. The first animal he brought out was a possum. He was all "Most people only see these on the side of the road. People rarely see possums just going about their business." I was all, Really? I must live in Possum Kingdom! (ha ha! That's a funny local joke because we have a lake in the area called Possum Kingdom.) I am still feeding our possums every night as well as putting out fresh water. It's like a sideshow on our front porch that we watch while we are watching TV.
My Sweetie finally picked some days he could take off so we can go see my daughter in August. Although he could not take off for her actual birthday, we will be there just a few days before. I'm looking forward to seeing her. I haven't been to Colorado since maybe 1989 or maybe 1990. I am also looking forward to roadtripping with My Sweetie and enjoying cooler temps. I 've already made all the hotel reservations and am looking forward to planning the road snacks.
My brother's daughter, the "found " daughter that we all discovered in 1999 when she was almost 18, recently posted some pictures of her son. He's almost 11. Mom pointed out that he reminded her of me. I think she was talking about this picture.:
That was my fourth grade picture, so I was 9. I never noticed, until I had the picture on my computer tonight, that I have that whole Mona Lisa/ I have a secret thing going on. The reality was, my top second right incisor was coming in oddly and there was no way in hell I was going to show that. The photographer was doing everything he could to get me to grin. Well that's all he got and I like it. The picture was taken in 1970. Doesn't that sound like a million years ago?
