Smiles and Laughter

I was going through boxes yesterday, and I came across this picture taken when Todd and I were dating....let's see that would be 26 or 27 years ago! I love that sweet face of his. It always makes me smile. I can see it in expressions of both my children, and that makes me smile too.

I also came across more letters he sent during summer breaks. I thought about how my children will probably not have these tangible gifts to sift through when they are older because of this age of technology we live in...written communication for them will be email and text messaging and whatever else electronic written communication evolves into.

In this box I also found funny cards and letters from highschool and college friends. I will share one slightly vulgar one that made me and my two friends who were visiting laugh out loud, loudly!! Don't read any further if you only know me as sweet, demure susan and don't want that image tarnished. ;-)

The outside of the card says "Here is a joke so funny you'll laugh your tits off!"

The inside of the card says, "Oh...I see you've already heard it!"

Oh my goodness, I needed that laugh last night. Laughter is absolutely the best medicine! Do any of you who knew me back then care to guess who sent this? I will "out" her in a heartbeat if you guess correctly ;-)

Hope your day (and mine) is filled with many opportunities to laugh loudly.


  1. I hope it wasn't me, even though I think I heard that same joke! Jen

  2. Love the picture and the risque card! Remember when we got you the rum from the Virgin Islands? You are not a souvenir type of person.

  3. spill the beans! who sent the vulgar card? jen, it doesn't quite sound like you . . . love the pix btw. that's how i remember you two.

  4. This is how you two always "look" in my mind when I think of you. In my mind we will always be that age...frozen in time as young college students with our lives in front of us. MSU and all the memories.
    Btw the card was from SFG wasn't it? Of course she is now SGH.
    Love you

  5. I'm so glad you posted that pic!! Love it! D
