Have Been Busy...
Confession. My recent absence wasn’t due to any nasty respiratory virus. There were just so many repair jobs to be done around here that it seemed entirely reasonable and logical for Canadian icon and contractor extraordinaire Mike Holmes* of Holmes on Homes to temporarily move in to complete them all. I was kept very busy playing the role of his able assistant. As a memento of our time together, he left me with the above photo.
I’m still smiling…
Confession #2. Confession #1 is simply wishful thinking/fantasy on my part – on so many levels - the virus, the repairs, Mr. Holmes. The truth? My son met him at a convention this week and brought home the autographed picture for his dear old mom. Thanks, Teds.
Truth or fantasy, I’m still smiling…
…because my son thought of me
…because the comment on the photo is so apropos right now
…because I am (90%?) back in the world of good health (knock on wood)
(*Not sure how well known Mike Holmes is outside of Canada but I do know his TV show airs in the U.S. and that he helped out in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Have also previously mentioned him on my blog.)
