Do you think yesterday will be one of those days where we remember exactly where we were for the presidential inauguration? I was at home... recording it for my grand kids for when they get old enough to appreciate what really happened yesterday. Little did I know that my draperies (which were Behind the camera) were being reflected in the TV.
Then we went out to dinner to celebrate with my parents. They're the ones who taught me right from wrong, morals and being kind to others after all. They're 78 years old and honestly Never thought they'd see the day we did yesterday.
It was a GREAT DAY UNTIL... we got home, I got into something comfy and laid down on the couch to watch some TV. Jimmie Dean jumped up on my lap and face and proceeded to bite my ear and take with it the quarter carat diamond stud earring I was wearing!!!!
They were a gift from Mickey many Valentines days ago. I jumped up in panic and put my finger in his mouth (and half way down his throat) just like you do when a kid swallows something. And there was nothing in there. He had swallowed it. Now he is the most expensive puppy I have ever had!!!! I was so sad and felt bad for Mickey, whom I'm sure had saved to buy those earrings for me.
This morning when Mickey came in to wake me and tell me he was leaving for work he said, " I found your earring!!!!! I said where???? In Jimmie Dean's mouth!! He had just dropped in on the quilt last night but found it again this morning!!! What a relief!!! I'm going to go to the jewelers today and get a new screw on back. (I had misplaced the one he bit off) Oh Happy Day... Two Times In One Day!!! A new president to lead us is more important than an earring, I know. But they mean so much to me. They were the very first piece of jewelry he gave to me. We weren't even married yet!! Better marry this one, huh?
Enough excitement for one day. Tonight is hooking night with our group. I'll try to get some pictures.
