"Laughter is an instant vacation." Milton Berle
According to recent studies, we need 12 laughs a day just to stay healthy. I offer all who pass this way the gift of a link from Simple Truths ... to brighten YOUR day. Perhaps like me you'll watch it more than once ... and perhaps choose to pass it along to others like I did.

Thought for Today
"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass ...
It's about learning to dance in the rain."

I just love doggy faces! This post made me stop and give my dog a great big hug, I love him so.

Your lemon tree takes me back to my years in Phoenix. I'm seriously thinking of relocating to that warmer climate permanently. Dancing in the rain I can do, but surviving another winter of snow and sub-zero temps is almost more than I can bear.
