    At least you showed restraint and waited until the in-laws left before you played with the chainsaw  :D

    What bumped my day was a lot of kind emails shared back and forth between my Marine and I.  He can really make my day.

    I also hit over 1000 posts on a Military/Police site I am on.  They celebrated by giving me my own title and I will be getting an emoticon just for me with my name. 

    Did I mention my Marine?  Ha!  ;D

    Have a wonderful Wednesday, may your days always be bump worthy,  ;)

    Yesterday, I came home from a long day at work and discovered that a story of mine had been published and with it came a Paypal payment. I submitted that story well over a year ago and had forgotten about it.

    Debra--congratulations on the story published and on 100 posts and Madeleine L'Engle status!!!

    Yesterday I bought a lot of impatiens and when I bought them home, I pulled up behind my partner's car prepared to make many trips to get them up on the deck. Now, to get the full point of this, you have to know that I walk with a cane. In order to carry these big flats, I had to walk without the cane since two hands were needed. And when I walk without the cane, I lurch and unless I am super careful, I have back pain.

    I got out of the car and there was my partner's walker. It is the kind with wheels and a seat. And there was a note attached to it. "Load flowers here!"

    He is always doing small things like this to help me. When I chipped a bone in my right wrist and wore a cast that immobilized my right hand, without saying a word to me he cut in half all the bagels in a six pack. I was thrilled because I had spent some considerable time in bed the first morning with a cast wondering how I would cut the bagel for toasting and had sadly concluded that I would be bagel-less for a week or so!

    Patrisha, it's the little things that make all the difference, don't you agree?  My boyfriend often does the smallest things that make him so endearing. 
    Have fun planting your flowers.

    wonderful bumps!  So far none for me, except I am above ground like Ed was yesterday, but sure something soon will be here.

    Wonderful information Sailor!!!  Nice pic of your Marine, I have a soft spot for Marines, my brother is/was (once a marine always?) and are congratulations in order? or best wishes? or whatever,  in order to you!

    Great "bump," Patrisha!

    My bump so far today has been seeing an adult and young downy woodpecker at my feeder.  The adult is teaching the youngster how to use the feeder!  Too cool.  Yesterday it was finding a beautiful little nest in my geranium....wonder what kind of bird it was?

    My Keurig K-cups are on the Fed X truck for delivery today.  Can't wait to try that Perfect Peach.

    This is LUKE day.  Any day that I have the joy of my 9 yr old great nephew visiting is indeed special.

    A butterfly landed between my one-year-old great-grandson's knees while he was playing in the grass. The baby saw it, but he was unsure what it was and just stared. My wife ran in to get a camera and when she came out the butterfly took flight and landed on her finger. We didn't get a picture but it gave me a bump.

    And today I DID have fun planting them. I have four balcony boxes and three little pots all done. Only the hanging baskets to do...

    Congratulations.  How exciting for you. 
    If you decide to get the Bose headphones, do it as soon as you can and try them out before you leave.  I bought a set of the in-ears a few weeks ago.  I had contemplated them for about two years.   Once I got them out and tried them I did not like them.  I know, go figure, not liking something Bose.  They would not stay in my ears.  They kept falling out.  I ended up returning them.  I'm thinking of trying the Shure headphones.

    My bump for today was an old friend called me today.  JUST BECAUSE SHE CARED!

    She is also my hairstylist, she owns her own salon. I haven't seen her in a while and she called just to see how I was. She said, "you don't only have to stop in if you want your hair done, I love you and I'd love to just see your big fat belly" (im 29 weeks pregnant). She was originally from Spain so when she says this with her accent (that I LOVE) it just made me laugh.

    I promptly called her back and apologized because it had been way to long since I called her and that was entirely my fault! I asked her when she has a slump at work that needed filled. So now I am going to take her to lunch tomorrow and then go back to her salon and get the full works done (I need it!!) and we will get more visiting time that way I also filled an empty time slot for her.

    She's so funny and I love her! I'm glad she called and I wished I would have called her sooner.

    I had a nice bump before I even crawled out of bed this morning. Apparently the Spouse Thingy fed the cats before he went to bed at 4am, so that they wouldn't wake me up at the buttcrack of dawn. Granted, I still had Max trying to shove his nose up mine, but at least he was quiet and gentle about it.

    I had a huge "bump" yesterday and didn't have time to share it then so here goes now:  I bought a 2008 Kia Optima on Sunday and it was delivered to me yesterday.  "Happy Dance, Happy Dance"

    I love it!!!  It's Candy Apple Red and drives like a dream.  I know it's not some peoples dream car and quite frankly it wasn't mine either but after test driving it and having my best friends check it out with me, I got a great deal on it and the Dealer even have some paint chipping issues repaired.  So right now it is my "Dream Car".  It's beeaauutiful!!
