My great husband is 52 years old today.  He is alone, sitting at a truck stop on the outskirts of Las Vegas.  Last year, I flew his good friend, Dawn, from Montana.  He was so surprised!  Then we all went to the AZ RenFest in Phoenix.  He is away from his family about 85% of the time, yet he is still an active husband and father.  Seven and a half years ago I met him on the internet.  He took on a wife (lucky lucky me!), my 4 kids, dogs, cats and later 2 horses.  He was a single guy with lots of time just for himself!  We are most fortunate that this man was born 52 years ago!  We all appreciate all that he has given us.  I am a very lucky person to count him as my best friend!

I joined this site a few weeks ago.  I got a bunch of books posted, requested from me, sent and received some points to get some for myself.  I have joined a few sites like this over the years but the asking points were determined by the listers and they were asking outrageous amounts for their books.  This is one book = one point.  I received a few of the books for myself yesterday and am looking forward to having time to read them.  I have a link over on the right of my blog for this site… it is free except for the postage to mail a book to another member.  I hope that you like the program that they have…..

Husband has started a web site for his business.  It is called LOBOGUNZ.  He is still working on the “shopping cart” but the rest of it is done.  Stop by if you are in need of ammo or collector firearms.

How long does it take to eat a Tootsie Roll Pop?  Well, I want to know if the brain burps or farts when you can’t remember something that you know that you know!  Any thoughts fellow bloggers?

Jeff Healey will be missed.  Quote from Pantagraph.comCanadian blues guitarist Jeff Healey and his band perform in New York’s Central Park, in this July 1, 2000, file photo. Healey, arguably one of the most distinctive guitar players of our time, died Sunday March 2, 2008, in Toronto. He was 41, and leaves his wife, Cristie, daughter Rachel, 13 and son Derek, 3. (AP)”.  Even though he was blind, for me, he will always have “Angel Eyes”.  I saw him when he was touring with ZZ Top about 15 yrs ago at Konocti Resort and Spa.  It was a small outdoor venue and Jeff was the opening band.  I got there very early to watch and listen as he warmed up.  It was an awesome show.  I had originally got my ticket to see ZZ Top and was extra excited when I heard that Jeff Healey was the opening band.  BTW, ZZ Top stunk that day.

 I call this post “Wordless Wednesday” to honor him with a few moments of silent thought from me.
