More of Erica's Gifts..

I can't remember if I wrote what Richard's Monday and Tuesday gift had been when I was here on Tuesday. One was a little canister of 'happy thoughts' for when Richard might need one. He hasn't needed one yet thank goodness, but they're cute. One example.... "Costco samples, especially fried up sausage".lol.

For the life of me I can't remember what the other one was. Hopefully it will come to me.

On this visit, there were five more to see....
Day 10 - magnets with drawings of me, AJ, Dexter, and 'the cats'. "4 reasons to keep going". Very cute. Evidently the white board in here is not magnetic, so I've had to attach them to the light switch.
Day 11 - A CD of Cancer Fighting Tunes such as...
Always Look on the Bright Side of Life - Monty Python
Don't Worry, Be Happy - Bobby McFerrin
Survivor - Destiny's Child
Here Comes the Sun - The Beatles
Beautiful Day - U2
Day 12 - A CD of songs full of other people who are encountering stuff that sucks.
Titled - The World Sucks
Subtitled - Other people are having a rough day too.
Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
Hurt - Johnny Cash
Piece of Crap - Neil Young
Down in the Hole - Alice in Chains
Yesterday - The Beatles
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - U2
just to name a few
Day 13 - A story by Jack. It involved Richard fishing and on the cover was Chewbacka on the waterslides. Nice.
Day 14 - Bubble Wrap. Not wrapped around something. Just bubble wrap because, as the card states... "Everyone loves popping bubble wrap." Isn't that the truth? This one really made Richard laugh. And, of course, he immediately started, and is still, popping bubble wrap.

Love the song choices.

Hi Sonja--reading this from my patio in Spain and my laptop battery is getting low. I wrote Richard a couple of times but always lost it when I tried to post, so realize I have to join Google or whatever, so I copied my post to Richard and will try to copy it here--if it works, good, pass it on to him, if it doesn't, I'm glad you can't hear what I will be saying!!! Love to all of you, Elva
Hi Richard, I wrote a nice note the other day and then lost it when I didn't have a Google Account!! Short note this time--went to Montserrat today and lit a candle and said a prayer--everything helps!! Even if it from a Presbyterian turned United married to a lax Catholic at a monestary in Spain!!! Keep up the battle--you are definitely winning!
Hi to your Mom!! Elva xxx
