Two Things

Wednesday, May 5, 2010

Today I need two things: inspiration and a laugh.  

And maybe a peach muffin.

And  strong coffee.

And a facelift.  

But I digress.

I hope these bring you the first two.

  2. I love them all but in particular this one - A hundred years from now? All new people. Anne Lamott. I have never thought about it. Also the last from Bill Cosby. Hope you are well!
