Wonderful World?

(My Dad always said that!)
Okay, so...
I randomly met a woman (not in person) through Ebay. She was looking for 'something' and I happened to have 'something'! For a week or two we conversed through email ironing out all the details. We 'clicked' right away. She lives in Brooklyn, NY. I will probably never end up there? But, if I ever did, I would so look her up!
Once all was said and done, in her last email she sent along this quote:
"Friends are like STARS...you may not always see them... but they're ALWAYS there"...
All I can say is "What a WONDERFUL World it truly is when a complete stranger, whom you have never met face to face, considers you with the connotation of "FRIEND"!

On another note, LOST. I love this show. However, I must admit that this season has not captivated me like the first two seasons. I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat each & every episode. Each show ended with a great CLIFFHANGER. It was like that book that you just can't put down. This year I have been struggling to tune in each week. It's sorta been like flipping through a magazine. So far, this whole season has been, well, PREDICTABLE! UNTIL...Last night! Last night's episode made me exclaim out loud "Finally!" The ending was just what I have been waiting for!

Talk about MOOD swings!

I mean MAMMA Nature is sure having some BIG mood swings these days! This is my view today. Quite the change from my earlier post.
M-m-m-m-m-m-m, SUN, beautiful, warm & glorious SUN!
