When I published the last post, I guess I was still feeling down. I hadn't realized it at the time -- thinking the photo I took of the gorilla was funny and fitting. But after reading the comments you all have posted, I think I was a little blue. Well, blessedly, these things pass with me and things are getting back to normal. The stitches come out and the dressing comes off on Wednesday and again I'll be able to wash both hands! Hoorah for simple pleasures and the blessings of caring friends. Thank you.
Yesterday, we attended my niece's wedding in Willow Street, PA (near Lancaster/Millersville where my husband and I went to school and met). My brothers (the younger brother and father of the bride, lives in Mississippi, and the youngest brother in Georgia) and I always have a good time when we're together. We have the propensity to find EVERYTHING funny (much to the chagrin to those around us). The baby and my daughters danced their heads off (my girls are both so shy and demure (like their mother)) as did my 84 year old mom. The bride looked beautiful and the only glitch was the cake. Karen had wanted chocolate covered strawberries on the cake and instead of placing partially dipped strawberries around the three tiers of the cake, the bakery piled the totally dipped strawberries on top. Yes, it looked amazingly like poop. Into each event a little rain falls...:)
