All Things Unrelated

Fifty-four years ago today a little girl with a very devious mind snuck across the state line with a very cute young boy and got blood tests to obtain a marriage license. After a few small lies shadings of the truth, the license was obtained and the marriage did happen. On Wednesday, we will celebrate our 54th Anniversary with our children. These sort of marriages are doomed from the beginning, but somehow, we have survived and are still hanging in there. Our bodies are beginning to give out, but our minds are still in one piece each. (His mind had better agree with mine or I'll knock the stuffing out of him) Just kidding, he is my "Honey Bunny" and I love him more today than all those years ago.

Next on my unrelated list of stuff for today ---- The hubby had a total knee replacement three weeks ago and is beginning to get around on his own two feet with frequent rests and lots of Darvocet N 100. While he was in the hospital, I was reading the newspaper and came across an obituary in The Toledo Blade. There was a picture of a very handsome soldier from the World War I I think and a current picture of an elderly gentleman with this caption under the pictures. "Oh Crap, my name is finally in the obits." This is exactly what I would think, if my name were to appear in the obits!

Yesterday, we were out for an early dinner at P.F. Chang's (which is brand new in our area), but is well known to us from our time in Florida. Afterward, we stopped at a friend's house for a minute, but while leaving --- I must not have been paying attention to where I was going and I tripped and fell flat on my face in their cement driveway. I have always prided myself on my ability to recover from a stumble, but this time I went flying and hit about every place on a body that is on the anterior side. I actually hit my face on the cement and have a big ecchymotic area on my left cheek. Even though I am certain that nothing is broken, how am I going to explain a black and blue face to my friends at church in the morning?
I read on "Cathy's Place to Blog" that she is giving up blogging, at least for a while. Why do the people we love to read give up, while others with no talent keep going and going ---- like the Energizer Bunny"? I know I will miss her. How about you?
This is about it for my list of totally unrelated stuff today. I hope the muse will fall upon me again soon or I'll be joining Cathy.
Oh, yeah --- I made the bunnies in the picture.
