All I can say is this....

There is NOTHING better than spending a day off relaxing amongst flowers and friends.

I took the day off because it has been ABSOLUTELY beautiful lately....reminds me why we endure the winter...and this year, we had no excuse of "cold harsh winter", because it was truly quite mild.  Very few days ventured below 30 F.

But still, the delight of spring has few opponents.

Anyway, this card is "Les Fleur de mon ami" because it celebrates renewed friendship.

And, of course, since this is FWF, it's featuring a couple Unity Stamps and we're amongst friends!

Also the images...they are like spring buds...afresh and new and not yet fully bloomed.  Okay, silly analogy.....but you get it.  These are COMING to your mailbox soon, should you be as excited as I was to see them....

And another delight of spring for me has been my daily walks with sir Oliver and bella Layla....

My silly girl being her bold self.... You can't really tell from this shot, but there is probably 4 feet of air below her under the log.  The trails we walk are shared by mountain bikers and this is one of the stunt paths they can take.   And of course, the bold little ones with no fear.  They can take it too.  

She even went back over it a couple times just to make sure I got a decent shot of her being triumphant!

Cold Heartless Prank

I get a call this afternoon at work from "a friend" of my daughter's. He said that my daughter had been in a serious accident --> hit by a car. He told me that she had a compound fracture and was being taken to a hospital (he told me the name of the hospital). I asked a few more questions as my panic increased to almost hysteria. I had started to cry and was shaking pretty badly

My daughter lives across the country - literally. I was so frightened that something had happened and she was injured and well, you know....all sorts of terrible things started running through my head.

So, in a scurry, a few of my colleagues here at work searched Google and found the number for the hospital ER and the State Police for me. What a blessing they were.

The ER said that she hadn't arrived yet. They also said that they hadn't received any "codes", meaning, that at least they were not having an emergency brought in that was life threatening. The emergency room sugge…
