It's great that the ring isn't lost, but THIS sentence made me wonder about the whole thing...are you sure there are no burning mountains nearby and you have never noticed any mumbling creatures snuffling around the house, Del? ;)

Del - congratulations to Hayden -2 awards! :happy-cheerleadersmileyguy:

KingCarrot - well done for the party. I used to be quite shy (not the same thing I know) but found that when I am with other people with the same interests/hobbies I could speak to them more and that in turn gave me more confidence. It was one of the reasons I bought my VW camper - the old VW community is filled with nutters who need to know they are not the only mad person with a personal money pit :lol: :lol:

YAY Hayden!! Tell her I think she is awesome! :D And I loved the story about the ring. Got me all teary too.

I'm smiling because Hubby will be flying back in today. He had to do another trip out to DC and it was not the best timing for us. But, he'll be back today. :D Then we have just one more day before Thanksgiving break starts on Thursday. We could all really use it! Right after the holiday we'll be driving down to Florida to visit with family. We're surprising the girls with a very short stop in Disney on the way down. :D Just a couple of days. We're going to go to the Christmas party in the Magic Kingdom and do a couple extras like mini-golf and shopping. Can't wait to see the looks on their faces when they realize where we're going. Although, I swear Thing 2 is on to me! Really looking forward to some relaxing time with family afterwards. We're hoping it will be nice enough to go to the beach and we may visit Legoland.

Thanks! :D It was thrown together so last minute that it doesn't even seem real to me.

Del, if you didn't exist, we'd all have to invent you--after numerous G&Ts.... :D

I got a birthday card from Sharlene in today's post. :D Of course I had hoped to be over there for my birthday so the card was sent late, but it really brightened my day.

Well done Ava, and Hayden.

Wonderful story, Del. The turning point, perhaps.......... ?
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

Not as awe-inspiring as Del's post but I just created the ultimate, super-healthy raw cacao and honey bar and it was delicious. Believe me, it was nice enough to mention on here! lol.

:D
