    Well, my doctors told me I probably wouldn't be around about now. What do they know! LOL

    When they told me that I decided there were some things I really wanted to experience. I had already experienced Kopi Luwak. My next bucket list item was truffle oil. I found some on the web as there is nothing near that francy in my neck of the woods. For Thanksgiving I made potato salad with truffle oil and took it to my brother's house. That was the nastiest stuff I have ever tasted. Only one person there would eat it. I wouldn't even bring it home and I left the platter because I didn't want to have to wash it. So much for truffle oil.

    I also decided that I wanted to buy the world's most expensive perfume. So, I looked it up, and found it costs $437,000 an ounce. I just wonder what they would do if I wrote and asked for a 'scratch and sniff.'??? LOL, I'm sure they would be rolling around in the floor laughing their asses off! I already have lots of expensive perfume, so I guess I'll have to go for the next most expensive by the same company and which is only about $350 and ounce!

    Now, I cannot think of another thing I have wanted of life that I haven't had. Sure, if there were more time and I weren't hooked up to a pump, I would do more international travel, but the times aren't good for that anyway. I've been to my big two and pland the big 3 trip, which is in the US, in the spring.

    CU in the Spring, Sweetie!

    And, who needs the perfume when you can bake cookies with the windows closed and go sniff a gardenia at the nursery!

    Ahh, I did not realize that about you.
    I too have outlived my doctors predictions.
    As long as it is not too bad I will take what I can get.

    You're sharing your innermost existential thoughts on an internet messageboard nobody reads?

    I didnt either.

    I hope whats left of both your times are sweetly warm and a little giddy.

    Not one of us really knows how much time we have coming.

    There are plenty who think they have plenty of time only to find out they dont.

    Sitting on this spinning ball and watching the motion arround me has always been entertaining to me.

    I am so glad to be entertained by such simple things as the loving eyes of a soft coated dog and the silly squeals of the children playing next door.

    They to me are more precious than the finest commodities this spinning ball has to offer.

    Many joys to both of you.
