"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

February's five...

...the if you don't know me by now edition.


a list of oddities that may or may not be completely true;

*Once while I was moving my son's car to a different spot on the driveway, my foot slipped off the brake and I drove right through the closed garage door.  My hubs was directly behind the door.  We had just moved into this new house.  Actually, it was twice but at least now we have matching doors.

*I lost a rather important piece of clothing, while I was wearing it.  Tripped and fell...

*I once dated the heir to the See's candy corporation when I was with a friend in San Francisco.  The operative word here is "once."

*I was such a little smarty that I skipped third grade.  I was such a little smarty about it that I had to repeat the fourth grade.

*I was temporarily stalked by a man who witnessed my unfortunate clothing mishap.

  8. I think I have to hear more about the "clothing incident". REALLY, I must !!!!!
    See's chocolates are theeeee best.

    also, once when driving my car into the garage, I meant to step on the brake and hit the gas pedal, and hit all the shelving along that way. Things came a tumbling down.
    whew, escaped a good one there.
