Pull Up A Chair…

It’s morning here, with birdies all over the feeder and a kitty who wants more than anything to be an outside cat.  (Not gonna happen.)  The Peanut and I are watching Buzz Lightyear, and coffee is brewing in the pot.  She’s talked me into a thoroughly non-nutritious breakfast of some vanilla ice cream with sprinkles.  But I figured you are only a kid once and breakfast gets to occasionally be a treat, doesn’t it?

Doesn’t really go with the attempt we’ve been making to eat healthier and get some exercise (well, truthfully, Mr. ReddHedd has been much better about the exercise than I have lately…), but it’s only one morning and she’s having some serious four-year-old fun.

In short, typical Saturday here at Casa Smith.

Thought we could take a little time this morning to just kick back and say hello.  That goes for all the folks who read but don’t often post a comment — drop in and say hello, we promise not to bite.  (Well, can’t speak for Balrog…)  Here’s a question to get us started:  if you had the money and ability to retire comfortably today, what would you do with your time?  And if you are already retired, what would you be doing if you could?

Let’s talk hobbies, travel, whatever it is that floats your dream boat.  Pull up a chair…

PS — Bob Geiger has some great cartoons this morning.  Enjoy.
