Some people like to trust their fate to numerology. I think it's kinda' funny.


Celebrate! Itís 8-8-08!
Isnít it great, great, so great,
that the Olympics chose 8-8-08,
to open the games in China?

And so we stayed up late,
too, too, way too late.
slipped over into 8-9-08,
by then it didnít matter.

And then we ate,
ate, ate, and oh we ate.
Can you spell, ďsate.Ē
Fell into a deep stupor.

Arrived at heavenís gate,
sawed, sawed, and sawed that grate.
Woke up in a sweaty state,
wondering what is fate.

So set the clock and set the date,
thirteen months from now.
Will be fine at 9-9-09,
at least thatís the line.

Plan to celebrate again in 9-9-09,
nine, nine, oh nine is mine.
Eat, drink, and stay up too late.
Will have C4 in bed this time.

I did the ate-ate-ate thing on Friday too, Ron. I had a house guest from Cincinnati and there just never seems to be enough time for visitors to eat all of the great Southwestern food that they have been craving. So we ate and we ate and we ate until our lips and tongues were singed from green chile and our stomachs s-ate-ed, at least for an hour or so. Very cute offering, Ron, brought a smile to my face.

Take care,
