When I was a little kid, I had imaginary friends...Rusty the Rooster, Marion who I would go to the moon with in a cardboard box, Joe Namath the football player, and Roy. We had a sofa with mushy back cushions that used to rest against the wall. When I was about 3, I climbed up on top of the back and ran up and down it whlie leaning on the wall. It was awesome, like a bounce house or walking on the moon. It was also very hard to hide the fact that somebody had been up there. There were these massive craters in the cushions. I was the oldest kid and my younger brother wasn't walking yet. My Mom walked in and asked who was on the back of the couch. I told her Roy did it. He was always a troublemaker. Right, that so didn't fly.

When I was grown up, my Mom told my future husband about it. He's been teasing me about my troublemaking alter-ego Roy ever since. There's a song, Rapid Roy the Stock Car Boy, that gets mixed in there with the teasing now too. One of these years, I want to get my hair done like a Greaser and some fake tattoos and go as him for Halloween. "He's got a tattoo on his arm that says 'Baby', he got another one that just say 'Hey' and every Sunday afternoon he's a dirt track demon in his 57 Chevrolet....."

I am a rock was my anthem all through high school. Fortunately it is less accurate now but still a good song.

I like the streaks of mithril!

I will do this, but probably not right away. I'm flying across the country in the morning to spend a week with a dog trainer and probably bring a dog back with me!

Gotta put some glam on that getting older stuff. I hope all goes well with the dog training and you find a match with one you can feel comfortable with and that will help you with security. I keep thinking about you.
