Chicago, Santana, Ella’s At Last, dancing on a deck, braai fires, Albert Camus, Bonjour Trieste, kitchen table visits, sea sand stuck to my leg, do you want to muck about?, I’ve never bought anyone a diamond before, Hell! Do you wish That winter were over That driveways didn’t have such deep humps that scratch your car That thong sandals fitted rather than have the heel hang out and flip sand into your jocks That gnats were sweet and made of Eyegene That computers were perceptive and knew the time not to play around That cats and dogs were actually allies  …

God!  Who else would understand me like you do?

    Your husband is the one in the photo? He looks a lot like some of my cousins. The eyes especially, and the nose. Good grief.

    What a sweet way to say happy birthday to a guy who…well, does he ever wonder if he lives with Ernestine Hemingway?

    1. theonlycin says:

      *grin* He’s a fab story-teller but won’t put pen to paper.

    My [maternal] aunt said we were English, Irish (I suspect Scotch-Irish myself) with a little French and a drop of Holland Dutch. that encompasses a lot I guess. That’s shte side of my family tree your guy looks like.
    My other half f=of the old tree is something Mediterranean, although there must have been a blue-eyed grandparent at least somewhere.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Well, they are of Scotish blood, so you never know …

    If he read this, assure him that my family were good looking when we were all young. :-]
