No Upgrade Needed

One thing I don't think I'll be upgrading or trading in for a newer model is The Man. He secured his place in my heart today for a long time to come.

Miss Hope has had some issues occurring back home in SC. Now I'm not one to air dirty laundry because that's just tacky. Suffice it to say, it's been nerve wracking and since I no longer have any current nerve pills (they've all expired), finding peace of mind has been somewhat hard to do. Today, he understood my need to stay in my gown for the duration. Not one word did he utter. In fact, he went so far as to head out into inclement weather to purchase some comfort foods for us. I know. I know. Junk food isn't the answer and can only cause damage to a perfectly good body. Shut up. When the need is must be fed!!!

Back he came in the pouring rain loaded with chips and oreos. Double stuffed. Oh, how I love The Man. I did not hoard this mother lode. I shared with all so that we would share the junk food high on a stormy Saturday.

No, no upgrades are needed on this model. He is top of the line.

On another note, The Edge hit the 10,000 mark. How about that. I do have to say, though, that the counter wasn't established until summer of last year. Therefore, who knows how many hits were left unaccounted for before then. That's okay. What's life without a little mystery?

We can assume there might have been a thousand or two. One of the smartest things my ex ever said was, "When you assume, you make an "ass" out of "u" and "me". " God Bless him.....he was an assuming kind of guy.

I have to head back to good ol' South Carolina for a few days this coming week. Not by choice, as we just left there, but it'll be the last visit for a while I'm thinking. I'm going try and catch up on some good stuff I'm doing my best not to forget before I leave. Never fear...I'll be back soon enough to keep up my good works.

I just had to give The Man an "Atta Boy"! He came through when I needed with what I needed. He's cool like that.

Comfort junk food is totally legal and healthy. Sometimes you have to feed the inner you, not just nourish the body. Now, I have to go eat some bacon and tomato. Mmmmmm.
