It is a beautiful morning. The air is as crisp as a new red apple. I know this sounds weird, but if you live in Bakersfield you know what I mean, you can breathe this morning, without it hurting. I mean take really deep breaths. I always like it when it feels nice to breathe
I played house yesterday while R. put in the new water purifier system. He had to do lots of jumping through hoops to get it in but I am happy to say, by noon today we will have very fresh water to drink.
Today is R. birthday. He is 52. I am so happy to have known him 35 of those 52 years. Remember that commercial about your not getting older, your getting better? That is how I feel about him, he is way better now than at 17 when I met him. I mean have you ever noticed that when men get a little frost on the roof how much better they look, a few more lines and whew-we baby, you got some good stuff to look at every day. That is how I feel, I wonder why women just look haggard? So we are going birthday shopping today.
On this day, in 1957 Sputnik was launched, and so began the space race.
