Tonight's Top 3

The question tonight was "What is your favourite word in the English language?".

It took the 3 of us a while to come up with legacy, serenity (which led to tranquility), secularism, bumblebee and buzz.

But it only took us a minute to come up with a big list for Shasta - breakfast, supper, popcorn, bed (because she gets a treat there), squirrel, walk, out ...

What about you - what are your favourite words?

What would you?

If you could be or have any car in the world - fictional or real -what would it be?


Chitty-Chitty Bang Bang?


One of James Bond's amazing sportscars?

Kevin's 50!

He had to work from 12 to 4 but we went out for a nice dinner afterwards. He had steak and lobster, I had salmon. We shared his dessert.

If you can read the chocolate sauce you have a hint where we dined.

On the way home we had a bit of a surprise.

We are used to seeing deer and turkey frequently in the fields as we drive.

We are used to seeing horses and cows in pastures.

We have never encountered a cow on the road before. The car in front of us went up the farm lane to alert the farmer. The cow let us pass then moved into our lane and stared down a Ford F-150. We watched for a minute then moved on.

It occurred to me that this is going to be a milestone for many in our family.

Kevin and I will both be 50 by year end.

Caitlin and Alec will be 25 (that makes me feel even older than being 50)

Connor will be 16 (if he lives that long)
