Re: I smiled because...

My son had his first day at the local school after leaving his integration class elsewhere. Much to my relief he survived, and even found some footie friends

I smiled because a lovely wife, sausage balti, cold beer, Led Zeppelin IV and Fronalpstock at sunset all make a perfect evening.

I refuse to make my 2000 post. therefore I will roam offline forums, no matter the topic on other sections.

Doesn't that mean that you'll never get your 2,700th thanks?

Re: I smiled because...

... we spontaneously got invited by Swiss neighbours to tea on Sunday (same day!) when we ran into them on a public bus in the early afternoon. Well, it helped that they too have adopted a petite black Lab from the same guide dog school. This, after five years of living in CH!

What would our (integration) social lives be like without our dear dog?!

Not getting the 2,670th also means that he will never get to his 2,700th either!

(I'm an even bigger geek )

The only one of which I take any notice is my groan count.

It is performing woefully at the moment...

Such modesty. Though pound for pound your groan count is painfully low, I agree. Too bad the current homeopathy thread is Off Topic- could rack up there!

Getting dressed up and going to town with my daughter to join the High Rollers.

My daughter will sing in the car, that was my birthday present. She sings to request!

Re: I smiled because...

Before I left, my husband phoned and asked me if I felt the earth move. I smiled but then tried to remember when.
Hearing my pause he added- the earthquake- didn't you feel the earthquake?

It was a 5.8 in Virginia we had tremors.
