, although there were a few hairy days between now and my last thought
, the last two days, which are more than a week post-chemo, have been more than okay, in fact they were pretty good.
"Mama", Happy Mother's Day

A very moving song about the special love that is reserved for our Moms, here is Il Divo
singing "Mama" - Live in New York
I ran across Il Divo
a couple of months ago and was somewhat surprised, but more than pleasantly so, by this operatic quartet of men from different countries singing popular songs like I'd never heard them sung before. After listening to a number of their songs at YouTube.com
, I think I could like opera
at least their kind anyway. Check out Il Divo performing "Amazing Grace" at the Colosseum in Rome
, and if you don't get goosebumps, then I'd have to suggest that you have no bumps to goose.
, I debated whether to put the music video up instead of the live performance video, it was a lively debate, but I finally won, opting for the uplifting live performance in honor of my own sweet Mother
. If you'd like to see the official music video, it's also at YouTube.com

Dance of the Fairies
05.04.09 - 8:02 am (CT)
Yesterday, I went to a dance recital of mostly 3 - 5 year-olds, one of which was my granddaughter, Hope
she was cute as a Fairy Princess and, surprisingly for a 3-year-old, fairly comfortable on the big stage with all of the lights shining on her. And even though she was only on the stage for just one dance that lasted only a few minutes, it was a delightful hour spent watching all of the little girls dancing their hearts out my hands were tired from all of the applause for all of their fine performances. Bravo to one of my "sweet everythings" and all of her little twinkle-toed friends!
MY hound dog

Something came up while I was out of town for a few, Bob Harper
refused to eat, which for a 70+ pound dog is saying a lot, and what it says, is that Harper is most definitely, for real, MY dog
YES!!! So, in honor of the occasion, here's BOB HARPER, the dog!
Another Harper boy, gotta love him!
