and I'm grateful for you - my favourite sardonic cowboy with the good boots, keen wit.. and a drawl that makes my upright English sound like a pair of sharpened hedgerow clippers.

Gorgeous man...shoot a round for me eh?

(on the range...)

Yeah, you're my blessing today. x

"...me I'm just glad that there is a today still..." smiled the goblin who often forget that all life is built on a mere assumption of certainty, not that life ever owed one anything really, adding "...where there is life there is hope still, and where there is no life there is peace by it..."

This is nice. I woke up this Sunday and the roof is still over my head. And then I ate some food for breakfast. That also was nice.

Been years since those two things didn't happen every morning but my body ain't forgot those times.

Looks like the start of a good day.

Everything's really amazing right now; it's good to take time and realize it. We haven't had an active draft in this country in more than 40 years and that's a good thing.

Our ancient, ailing cat had another reprieve at the vets.

I can put the executioner's mask back in the drawer for now...

God is good.
Pet insurance helps.

Grateful I made it through another day of work to come home and read the way Grace wrote about her cat.

Walked two miles yesterday evening. This morning I am able to get out of bed with no unusual aches or pains.

Now that is grand.

Grateful for my spontaneity -

...the sort that got me tearing up the sitting-room carpet on a whim.

Grateful for my physical strength

...still hauling bales of it outside - undeterred by a blunt Stanley knife and a sneaking suspicion that this isn't a ten minute job

Grateful for my Mexican joie de vivre

...arriba, arriba! .. underlay underlay!
