Friday's Letter

Dear Mr. Veen:  last night we watched half of this movie.  I don't know what's funnier - the movie or the fact that each of us relate so closely with the characters in it.  Here's to bringing the "fun" back into dysfunctional!  Dear Spring in Oregon:  how is it that every year I forget just how cold and rainy you are?  I am compensated by the bright greens of my lawn, the emerging flowers, and the simple pleasures of hot coffee on a rainy morning.  Dear women of my tribe:  I am amazed at the strength, resilience, beauty, intelligence, and general awesomeness that is you.  Thankful to be part of this story.  Dear  Natalie Merchant:  what happened to you?  I love this song  - even though the video is outdated and at times corny it's still a winner.  Inspiration found in lyrics at 2:26.  And last to Mr. Veen:  in just a few short hours we will be: a) sipping on lemon drops b)  listening to the ocean  c)  relaxing with family  d)  eating, eating, eating or e)  all of the above?  Can't wait!!

  2. I would love to have that conversation.
