They say, "Life has it's ups and downs.." I don't really know who "THEY" are..but I have to agree, and say that right now this Dog is havin' his dayS!!! My car dies..my friend VC just GIVES me his 1990 Mustang!!! I have been waiting 4 very long years for a legal matter to be settled..I open the mail one day...boom!, all done!!, I am always thinking about how my kids are doing..and my youngest, Maddy, graduates from Penn State with something they call "High Distinction"..heck, I was lucky to pass 2 year business college! Hey, even my beloved Pirates have been on a little winning streak, the Pens are still alive in the playoffs, and the Redskins had a fairly respectable draft! I know, I know, "peaks and valleys", "highs and lows"...but, right now I am gonna ride this high awhile, count my many blessings, and who knows..maybe buy me a lottery ticket?!
