“The relationship between husband and wife should be one of closest friends.”  B.R. Ambedkar

Where were you?  What were  you doing?  

Considering that this phenomenon will not happen again within our lifetime, I decided it had to be documented in my 365 Project.  It was interesting to set this up with other people watching with curiosity.  In fact, there is a fellow just off to the right in the hot tub smiling at us while the camera snapped away on Self Timer mode.  This will be a great memory to pass on to our Grandkids and Great Grandkids so that they can see their Ya Ya and Papa G living life, not letting life just pass by.  I want my future generations to be motivated and excited about exploring the world and living life to the fullest for as long as is possible.  We live in a very mobile world where it is easier and easier to travel the world over and experience life on a level that my parents never did.  And I never did either until recently – within the last ten years.  And I’m now hooked!  

And I’m doing it with my Best Friend!  



“We need to ditch the idea that there is any value in the strong and silent man being in any way attractive. Being silent isn’t being strong, it’s being a victim.”  Jane Powell

Reading this quote made me think about what a strong man I am married to/partnered with.  He’s no victim!  Yeah, I know – he’s digging that ditch with a back-hoe attachment on the John Deer tractor.  But that’s the thing . . . he’s dug a few ditches in his lifetime so he knows the value of using the proper tools to get the job done.  And now that he can afford the tools, why not use them??  I am continually amazed at his strength in all kinds of situations . . .not just ditch-digging.  He fixes things, builds things, designs things, sells things, thinks big and lives large.  I guess you can say I’m a huge fan of his! He keeps his cool in some pretty difficult business situations . . . when projects seem to be heading off the rails he manages to rally the troops and get things back on track.  He doesn’t lose his head, he doesn’t lose his cool.  He’s an amazing father who helps his boys when they need him, but at the same time enables them to make decisions and learn from their mistakes.  He’s an absolutely giddy and silly Grandpa . . . completely in love with the little ones.  He’s about the best son a mother could ever want . . . being there for his 93 year old mother no matter what.  And most of all, he is my rock, my best friend, my confidant and life partner.  Every day is not perfect . . . and guess what . . . his farts do stink . . . but I love him no matter what!  We are traversing whatever ditches and mountains we encounter in life . . . hand in hand, side by side, together.  





“You mean what we thought they thought we think and thought they thought?”  SpongeBob

I’ve never really been a huge fan of Sponge Bob Square Pants . . . but he’s growing on me!  I love some of the “sayings” that come from the show . . . although some of it is a bit “nasty” for my taste.  Anyway – my Granddaughter has this board game called Sponge Bob Life, so we played it this evening.  It’s not that often anymore, in this age of the Internet, that we sit down face to face and play an interactive board game, so it was quite a lot of fun.  And don’t you just love that quote??
