I have a head code.... sniff

And I am in knitting mode, and about to watch pre-Thanksgiving hockey, unless I fall asleep! Our local hockey star, Mike Modano is the highest American scorer, ever. And he's so handsome! And gracious. So there's one thing to be grateful for.

And in the spirit of Poem Wednesday (which I missed last week) here's another image I'm thankful for.

"Words from the Front"

We don't look as young
as we used to
except in dim light
especially in
the soft warmth of candle light
when we say
in all sincerity
You're so cute
You're my cutie.
two old people
behaving like this.
It's enough
to make you happy.
