The morning routine

Dear Mom,

My morning routine includes an email check and a scroll through some favorite blogs.
This morning, I found this picture on one of those regular places I visit.

It is not a naughty site, I promise.

Anyway, the blogger was wishing she owned a cat so she could get it stuck in a tree.

As I gazed at all that firemanly goodness, I drifted back to the day in 1982 when a group of Dental Hygiene Students Soon to Be Graduating and Desperately Seeking Board Patients went on an afternoon tour of downtown fire stations. Imagine a small group of cute 2o-somethings walking into the fire station and asking sweetly of the men if we could see their teeth. Not a problem as they were already grinning/leering. One of us did luck out and get a board patient, but the rest of us went on to find our patients elsewhere. And Nowhere did I see any firemen that looked like the men in that photo.

Of course, I was probably blinded by the engagement ring on my finger and wouldn't have noticed them if I was looking right in their mouths.

And just so you don't think I spend all my time looking at beefcake the web:

On Sunday, I finished a pair of socks.

And started another.
