What's in a number you say? Yesterday was the dreaded Friday the 13th. No problemo. Traditionally my favorite number is 88 (ala Lynn Swann). Today my favorite number has officially changed-just for the day. Today my favorite number is 85. We picked up Benny up 85 days ago. These have been the best 85 days. Better days with tears and smiles are coming, too! No matter what day or what year, I'll still feel this way when I'm old and grayer.

In the words of one of my favorites, Jimmy Buffett-"Wrinkles only go where the smiles have been."

Of course all will be right on Tuesday when I get back to the number 88.
