In Hugo, Minnesota, Clarence and Mayme have been married for 83 years. I think that's way beyond cool. Their last argument, they say, was in 1946.

Meanwhile, thanks to all the wonderful people who took the time to click on the Shoe, my hit counter is about to roll over to 200,000. I am kind of giddy about this, which probably says a lot about the excitement factor in my life right now. I appreciate all of you.

Quote of the Day:
Me: Emily, don't look snarly.
Emily: Oh. I was trying to look snooty.


  1. Love your quote!

    If you want to, there's a blog-game that goes like this:
    8 new things about me meme.
    Here are the rules. You share 8 things that your readers don’t know about you. Then at the end you tag at least 8 other bloggers to keep the fun going.

  3. Hi Dorcas -

    I've been 'lurking' at your place for some time now, following along with you in my reader (I'm also a fan of your column), but today I just had to stop by and say 'Thanks' for a much needed grin.

    Your quote of the day just cracked me up and I don't think it has a thing to do with my recent lack of sleep :) Your last several posts have kept my sense of humor going (it's currently on life support) and I thank you! :)
