* While on a trip, we stopped at the diner in a little town named Searchlight Nevada. It was way off the beaten path and away from the bright lights of Reno and Las Vegas. When the waitress came over for our order, I asked her where I could find a newspaper. She replied, “Honey, just sit over there at the counter and you will hear everything you need to know.”
@ I was entertaining at a family restaurant making balloon animals for the children. I went from table to table asking the children what kind of animal they would like. At one table the little boy was very hesitant. After a minute, I prompted him with some of my specialties. “Would you like an elephant, or a giraffe, a dinosaur or maybe just a snake?” The boy was perplexed by the choices and finally asked, “Can’t I just have plain chicken?”
# I grew up in a non musical family only one of our five siblings can carry a tune. So, I restricted by singing to private places like the bathtub or the car. But one night, I softly sang a lullaby to my nine month old baby. After the first verse, he sweetly looked into my eyes, removed the pacifier from his mouth and placed it in mine.
