1. Fifteen year old daughter won't look in the men's underwear department with me. She keeps walking as though she doesn't know me.
2. I spent the evening watering the garden, buffeted by the breeze of a cold front. The garden stones shine in their deeper, prettier colors when they are wet.
3. Daughter #3 walking through the kitchen: "Mmm, what's that good smell? It smells like cotton candy in here!"
Me: "Huh? It's beef and soy sauce."(Maybe she needs her tonsils and adenoids returned.)
4. The little box pops up on the computer screen and it's Steve sending me a message! We send a few back and forth until I am finally tired enough for bed.
