While Wilf dozes, large black nose sticking out from under the table cloth, I read the morning papers. It took time but Charlie Sheens convoluted antics have finally made it into the French press. They don't even bother trying to translate " I'm not bi-polar , I'm bi-winning " preferring to leave it, for all to enjoy, in its native English . There's also a story from The Boston Globe about Kathy Spencer , a woman who is the ' Oprah of couponing '. Apparently she works coupons and store credits to get $60,000 of products for free each year. This seems like a good idea until I read her quote : " When a newbie couponer is birthed they are very much like baby vampires ". Hmmm.
We seem to have got Wilfs diabetes under control. Five nights in a row of uninterrupted sleep. Sweet peace all the way through until six in the morning. He has the sort of uncomplaining temperament that knows that the ' three grand essentials to happiness are something to do, something to love and something to hope for '.
