Johnny Depp 'tips' / gives hat to boy; I have a splendid pool time:)

I found one of these heartwarming stories on MSN today here , where Mr. Depp sent his hat to a teen after promising to do so! The child's family was impressed.

Hope everyone is starting their week off well.

I went to the pool as I mentioned I would on the Jungletart blog , and had a good time. I did the class with a bunch of nice older women, I was definitely the youngest, and that's okay. Then, while my Mom and others got into the hot tub there, I did some laps in the Adult swim lap lanes, including my 'famous' back stroke. I managed to do this for 15 minutes then I very ungracefully got out of the pool. But, I got out, and that's the important thing!:)

Have a great week, everyone!

Heartwarming story

I thought this was a heartwarming story: Meet the miracle baby that was born twice at

This baby had a rare tumor, a rare surgery outside the womb, and a healthy birth afterwards. Nice.

:) Tart

Knitting again! Playing clarinet, again!

Now that I have a little more 'contained' energy, I've returned to some hobbies. Some I didn't talk about before, playing clarinet, and some I've mentioned, that cute 'lil' hobby known as knitting!

I don't do them at the same time (grin) but I do use them to keep my hands busy and mind thoughtful when not at the ol' bloggin keyboard.

Perhaps photos will come soon of the enormous pink acrylic needles I decided to finally use and may I say they just work better for me than skinny metal ones, for playing around and learning! I highly recommend the 'fat' ones for just that purpose. The ones I have are size 15.

And clarinet: I've had mine for a very long time and I can still do it, which is a miracle. And I have lots of sheet music, which is my forte: reading music for it. I never learned scales properly, which held me back several times. But I actually play for recreation and my own personal fun. (I'd love to be in a Jazz Band someday - but I think that will take lessons in order to do (check my 25 wishes!). I'm not there yet).

All have a pleasant day, this Saturday morning and rest of the weekend!
