The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! I am back and will be working today. OH my goodness, it is COLD in the house. Got down to 64 degrees fahrenheit overnight. I could not warm up and even though I likely had the warmest shower that I have ever had, I am still feeling cold right down to my bones. The sky is blue and the sun is shining so hopefully it will warm up. Earlier when Alvin and I were outside in the backyard I noticed that the water in the dish for the birds and bees had frozen over. My poor plants. The pansies and violas are still doing okay but the others are having quite the time. I haven’t checked the front plants as yet. I will admit, just a tad bit afraid. I sure wished that the overnight temperatures would warm up. Yes, it is just the last day of May. But would be nice.

Today is the last day of May and also the Happy Birthday of one of my most dear friends and also a neighbour “G” ……. Alvin and I wish you the best day ever. This was the birthday party that another of the friends hosted on Sunday. We had such a great time. Signe went over the top with the food. There was laughter and no tears. I love these girls. They are such great friends and neighbours. I got so lucky when I chose this place to live. So blessed and so fortunate and I am so grateful.

Happy Birthday Gillian

I can tell you something that I know for sure and that is that a cup of coffee is going to taste so good this morning. I am still cold.

I stepped in poop somehow again, the only poop in the backyard (that was last evening). The grass even though I cut it only a few days ago is growing so fast, that it needs a trim again. That way, the poop cannot hide in the grass. I have been going out with Alvin especially at night. How is it that poop always seems to “step” into the conversation, lol. It may be gross but the word is kind of funny. Poop, poop, poop, poop!

Well on that note I need to head on downstairs and get the coffee made.

I hope that you have a wonderful Tuesday.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, laughter, understanding, gratitude, focus and possibilities.

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. poop, lol.

The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? Sorry that I am late but we had a mishap earlier. Alvin woke up at 3:00 a.m. to go outside to go pee. I was not able to open the back door so I quickly got him ready and my coat on, to go out the front. Once back in, I played around for quite a long time to get the door open. The deadbolt lock would not open. Finally I took a screwdriver out of my tool box which I am glad that I brought into the house and had in my front entranceway closet. I took said screwdriver and pushed the deadbolt “tongue” until it open. The deadbolt is in the open position now but cannot lock it. Without the deadbolt in place, there is a draft coming in from the backdoor. I was so tired earlier that I propped up a broom and an umbrella hoping that would work, but not really. I texted my Manager to see if okay to take the morning off as I was a walking zombie by that time. I had basically been up since 3:00 a.m. Anyway not to complain. So I took the morning off. I have been fiddling about with the door and the inner workings of the deadbolt came out so I guess it is fair to say that I need a new deadbolt. I came up with a solution to hold the door closed with no draft and that was taking a couple of (exercise) weights that I had in the basement and pushed them against the bottom of the door. Voile. No draft. It was easier to see during the daytime. Anytime band-aid solution but a solution nonetheless. I cannot go and pick up a deadbolt and it is far TOO BLOODY COLD to be changing the lock so the weights will keep it closed properly so that I am not heating up the great outdoors. Besides I almost had a coronary when I received my EPCOR bill yesterday is was just over $469.00 which is up over $120.00 from last month. Seriously at this rate, not sure what to do. That is absolutely bananas. Now that bill does include heat, water and electricity and garbage and waste but still. That is a huge increase over last month. Everything but our pay is increasing. What are people going to do?

Well on that note I am going downstairs and having a cup of coffee while I can still afford to buy coffee and while we still have it in the stores. Who knows what will be off the shelves next. Luckily I am stocked up with pantry staples so will be okay for awhile.

I hope that you are safe and warm.

2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? Wow, December 30, 2021. Well we slept in but really what does it matter? We are not going anywhere or doing anything special. The sky is clear and the sun is up. The pups are both in the office with me. I caught Cookie a couple of minutes ago carrying something downstairs. It was a Fifth Avenue Jewelry box. One that once held a piece of jewelry but was stored on a moveable cart in the guest room. Perhaps to be used another day. Well Miss Cookie had it in her mouth and was about to make a quick getaway down the stairs. She definitely is getting more brave and confident and inquisitive with each day she spends with us. I am most grateful to have Mr. Alvin as he is more concerned to be right beside me than to be checking things out in other rooms. He never really has inquisitive. He has always been happy to be with me. No matter where I am or what I am doing. So as we go into the New Year we, me and Alvin are with another being who likes to look and sniff and see what everything is. Maybe it is because our home is relatively new to her and not to us. I am not sure but whatever it is I am happy that it is the way it is in this moment. She is lying on her belly scratching at the door. She does not like the door being closed. But she will need to learn patience. After this post, I am going to have a shower so yet again another door will be closed. I do not trust her not to get into things if I am out of the room for more than a couple of minutes. She jumps as though she is flying. What a character she is!

She loves to lick me and Alvin. She was just licking Alvin’s face and he put his paw up as if to say “enough.” She is lying by the door on her side and Alvin is whining, for what reason I do not know. Perhaps he is bored being in the office with the door closed. Not an usual scene for us.

I just paid Alvin’s pet license online. Thank goodness for technology.

Well the troops are getting restless and I need a shower. I think today will be a pancake day. Time to use up milk and eggs. I always buy too much at Christmas. Even with the extra company we still did not go through as much as I bought grocery wise. Which is okay as I do not need to go to the grocery store any time soon. Except for bananas. We always need bananas. Alvin and I love bananas. I would love one right now.

I forgot to mention that when we went to bed last night. Cookie was playing. Alvin was laying down quietly but she was jumping and rolling and did a backflip right off the bed. Thankfully she landed on the area rug. I couldn’t look at first as I thought for certain she had injured herself. But within a couple of seconds she was back up and fooling around. Whew!!

I wished that I could show you a video of Alvin and Cookie playing together. Chasing one another. Once in awhile they stop and she licks his face. I haven’t seen that much energy coming out of Mr. Alvin in a long time. Clearly they are enjoying each other’s company.

I had pulled the spare bedroom door closed and heard a scratching but it was not Cookie opening the door – it was the Alvin. OMG.

Sometimes there is fireworks!!

Wishing you a great day. I hope that you are able to laugh and are in good health and have plenty to eat.

Continuing to live each day with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, laughter, understanding and gratitude.

Always, Carol, Alvin and Cookie (Monster).

P.S. I renewed Alvin’s pet license this morning. I had forgot that I did it online last year. So easy to do.

2021

Good Morning ALL and Welcome to Friday, December 17, 2021. Only SEVEN sleep till Christmas EVE.

It is an extremely cold morning here in Edmonton, minus 30 celsius and I have no idea if there is a windchill factor added to that number. When Alvin went out earlier he was out and back so quickly. Usually he goes out after his breakfast but he just wouldn’t go. I know that he has to go outside so I have to make this short as I will grab my coat and stuff and go outside with him. When it is this COLD you have to watch your pets carefully. DO NOT LEAVE THEM OUTSIDE UNATTENDED. PLEASE. No Animal should be chained up outside at anytime but definitely not now. If you see someone who has left a dog outside please call the authorities. Did you know in Canada it is against the law? $20,000.00 FINE and possible jail time. It is cruelty.

Just a quick more positive note. Guess who popped by last night for a quick visit as they were back in town? Alvin’s Best FRIEND Teddy, his little sister Kobi and his Mom. We had the best visit and lots of laughs. I learned something to help Alvin with his ear problem. Which I will share once I try and see if it works. After tea and a visit, I sent them home with some Christmas Treats. We were not sure if we would see each other before Christmas so this was a pleasant surprise.

Okay, I must go and get the boy outside. I wish you a wonderful Friday. We will be back tomorrow.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, laughter, understanding and gratitude.

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. only two sleeps till Cookie comes to stay with us for two weeks. We are so excited.

2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you this Wednesday morning? I just realized that we are now in single digits until Christmas EVE, yes, only NINE sleeps. Don’t panic, there is still lots of time to get things done. Okay, take a deep breath, this is my 64th Christmas, I got this. I have had plenty of practice over the years. LOL. OH, my goodness what came over me. Sheer panic for a nanosecond. I am okay now. Besides, the Cards are mailed, the baking and cards are all delivered except for one. Most of the gift including stocking stuffers are bought, wrapped and under the tree. Except for one item because I am pretty sure that someone might sniff it out and open it up, not because it is for him but because there is something sweet in it and he definitely cannot have what lies inside. I think we all can guess what that is.

Thankfully the skies cleared yesterday and the snow stopped as it seemed as though I would be shovelling forever. It is nice to have some snow on the sidewalks even though we have shovelled ours. Not everyone can or does get out and shovel. Next week will be the shortest day and then each day will get longer and longer. So excited for that. There is something about waking up in the dark and then it being dark when you stop work. Mixes up and plays havoc with my sleep and I am quite certain it does with many others, as well.

This coming Sunday, we will have our little four-legged visitor COOKIE coming to stay with us for two weeks. I cannot wait. It will be great to have another little one in the house. At Christmas there will be Aspen and Mi-Mi, too. As many, four-leggeds as two. We will each have a pup to snuggle with. I cannot wait.

Well I guess I should sign off for now. I would like to wish you all a great day. If you are feeling a bit on the low side, take some time away from what you are doing and if you need to speak to someone, do it. There is nothing wrong with doing so. We all suffer from time to time from some type of depression, especially at this time of year. Ask for help. Please. Reach out.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, laughter, understanding and gratitude.

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. I am going to enjoy my coffee on this second morning of using my Golden Girls “ROSE” mug. I love it.

2021

Good Morning ALL. How are you this fine sunny Monday morning? I am so lucky that today is a “day off” as the Province of Alberta celebrates “Alberta Family Day” Considered to be a stat holiday. My plans for this day are to gather my Steeped Tea and NORWEX paperwork for Income Tax. That time will come up soon enough and this time around I would like to be prepared. Also have to tally electricity charges, heat, internet and so on, those deductions that may be used in time tax when you are in business for yourself. I claim my commissions obviously as income. This is all in addition to my regular job. Anyway, that is the plan for this afternoon. Hopefully the temperature has warmed up enough that we can also go for a walk this afternoon. Yesterday I thought felt warmer was actually minus 28 celsius with the windchill. I guess it was warmer when compared to minus 45 or so with the windchill. Yesterday we had a great visit with my daughter. She stopped by the store and picked up a few items for us. I went out to the garage when she arrived, as this was the first time my daughter was driving the new car, well she backed the new car into the garage. It is huge compared to their other car, the KIA Soul. The back up camera got her parked within I would say three inches from my bistro table which is made of steel and river rock. That would have caused a serious dent. I am going to move that table so there is more room, I had not thought the car was that big but it is. Alvin was happy to see his sister. I helped carry the groceries into the house. When she came into the house after me, hand in hand with the most beautiful plant with pink flowers in a cute pink pot adorned with a pink heart, so pretty and a bag which she handed to me right away which I found to contain a box of one of my favourite treats from Dairy Queen – dilly bars. My other fav is the buster bars with nuts. I love the two and they are truly a treat for me. After the groceries were quickly put away, I made her a cup of coffee and began to dish the food. I made these egg treats which I am calling EGG MUFFINS ….. they are finely chopped veg (I used broccoli, red pepper, yellow onion and parmesan cheese) in the bottom of a muffin tin and then pour whisked egg over top. Easy peasy. So good. I also put in some spice and pepper but found that I could have added more spice for sure. We had sourdough bread toast with the egg muffins. The other thing to know is that I sprayed the muffin tin with a vegetable spray to help the muffins not stick. They did stick a bit but not too bad. We enjoyed our late breakfast/brunch/lunch together. Mr. Alvin was feeling left out and wanted what we were having of course. Afterward we enjoyed a couple of the “no bake energy bites” that I had chilling in the fridge and some coffee on the sofa. Our visits are always great and never long enough. But there is never enough time with my girl. When she went to leave a few hours later, she had asked if I wanted to drive the new car. I said YES. So I started the new car and drove it round from the garage down the back lane and onto the street that goes by the house and parked in front of the house. I must say it is a pretty sweet ride. I am so happy for them. It is a nice vehicle. Once we said our goodbyes, I went to the house and waved as she pulled away. Back in the house, Mr. Alvin had been watching from the window. I wanted him to see the car on the street so that he will know it is his sister next time she drives by. He knew the other car by sight. We received a text from Teddy & Kobi’s Mom that they had a Valentine’s treat for us and was wondering if they could pop by. Who can turn down treats, not me and Alvin. I always love when the pups come to the house ….. Teddy’s Mom puts him down and he runs like there is no tomorrow to the house. I of course, was ready with the door open and in he ran. Kobi’s Mom put her down closer to the house and in she ran. They jumped up and down so happy to see us. Their Mom came in mask covered to give us our gift which was chocolate for me and a bag of chew treats for the boy, and for a short visit. We always social distance. I feel so blessed that I had some company. Otherwise 24/7 it is only me and Alvin. Not complaining. Not complaining.

Well it is time to head on downstairs. I could not get my keister up from the sofa this morning so it was about 8:30 when we got up for the final time …. I will say that it was Alvin that got me up. He nudged me to say …. time Momma to get up. I am glad that he did. With a bright blue sky and sun shining …. it is going to be a great day.

I am grateful for all of our many blessings.

Continuing to live this day as all others with kindness, respect, compassion and patience.

Always, Carol & Alvin

2025

Good Morning ALL. How are you doing today? I hope that you are well. Alvin and I are doing great. Another cold day. I noticed there was some extra snow on the sidewalks and on the deck. Guess there was some snow before we were up earlier. I love that the sun is beginning to rise earlier and earlier each day. I found out that March 14, 2021 is the date that we here in Alberta turn our clocks forward by one hour. The time change always seems to play havoc with me and Alvin, most especially Alvin for at least a couple of weeks before we are used to the difference. I will say that it is harder to turn the clocks back than forward. Mr. Alvin is barking at me from the office. What a guy. Oh my goodness. He is hard to please. I had moved his little blanket bed from the office to the doorway thinking he may like to make eye contact from where he is but that was not what he wanted. After I had a shower and while still in my housecoat with my hair wrapped up on top of my head, we went downstairs and out he went. Does he need to go again? Anyway I guess this will be quick. I did want to mention that yesterday doing the list jogged my old memory about many other items around the house that I love. I have this seashell with pearl brooch that my grandparents bought for me when they went on their cruise to Hawaii. I have jumpsuit that she took on that trip. I believe the trip was about 1968 and I was 11 years old. The brooch is so exquisite. I will take a photo and share with you soon. It is so delicate and beautiful. I have managed to keep it safe and intact for all these years. Now one small pearl did come loose and I have that little pearl. I do treasure that gift so much. Another item was a solid green jade ring that my best friend in Grade 12 gave to me in 1976 and I have wore it everyday since then. I may changed fingers as my fingers changed size but I wear it to this day. Two more treasures. I am very blessed.

It is time to head downstairs. I was even up a bit earlier but today was pay bills day so that takes a couple of extra minutes and we did go downstairs in the middle of things. Oh well, such as life.

The sky almost looks periwinkle in colour from my office window and that brings a smile to my face and joy to my heart.

Wishing you a wonderful Thursday.

Today they deliver my second Chef’s Place meals for this next week. So excited.

Warming up tomorrow so that I can walk to the vet for supplies for the boy.

Continuing to live with kindness, respect, compassion and patience.

2021

Good Morning ALL. How are you doing today? I am/we are well. Last night or rather this morning, first time up and downstairs was at 4:08 a.m., yay Mr. Alvin. Next time up when I set the alarm. Feels like I had a good sleep. I am most grateful. The night sky is just starting to show the morning sunrise as it begins to lighten on the horizon. My view from the office window facing southward.

News on the block. My kids bought a new car. So exciting for them. They brought it to show me on their way home from the dealership last night. It is a beauty.

Today is the 44th birthday of my eldest nephew. One of my high school classmates turns 64 today as well. It is a reminder that this is the year me and my graduating class turn 64. I cannot believe it. Does not seem real but then again on the other hand – my nephew just turned 44, so it does. Happy Birthday Nephew – Wishing you a wonderful day. He is away working up north and it has been minus 50 celsius. Now that’s cold. Sending you good wishes and warmth. Take care and be safe. To my friend Barb, Happy 64th Birthday. Wishing you a wonderful day.

As I look about my office, I see that my African Violet has a great many purple flowers. She is most beautiful with her deep purple blooms and rich green leaves. The smaller Spider Plants that I have brought up stairs are doing well. They seem to grow like nobody’s business no matter where they are placed. Easy peasy. My Geraniums downstairs are blooming with bright pink flowers. Love them. Poinsettias are doing well. The one from last year has some leaves that are turning red. So pretty with green and red leaves. I would say that my little garden in the kitchen and in office are bright and cheery and bring joy to my days. Always good to be surrounded by greenery with a pop of colour. Good for the air as well.

I can see the sky starting to turn oranges and pinks on the horizon and soon the sun shall be up and shining every so brightly.

Another cold day but by Friday it will be warming up. Which is a good thing as I have to make a run to the vet for supplies for the boy.

Well time to head on downstairs. The boy is standing staring at me from the hallway. He has a piercing look when he wants something.

I wish you a great Tuesday, be safe and warm and take care.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion and patience.

2021

Good Morning ALL. How are you this morning? We are doing well. A few times up during the early morning hours and finally up to stay just before 8:30 a.m., on this slightly overcast Sunday morning. The sun is rising in the morning sky spreading the glow. How was your Saturday? Mine was amazing. First thing in the morning, Alvin and I hosted our friend Signe’s birthday party in our garage. Our friend Gillian brought over small heaters and it definitely took the edge off in between blowing the breaker box in the garage until we realized it was the smaller older heater that was causing the disruption. We unplugged the older heater at that point. We had blankets and of course all of our winter gear. I snuggled up to Mr. Alvin on the two seat sofa with him in his sweater and wrapped with a warm blanket. You never saw happier friends. I cannot tell you how much I miss our get togethers. We used to have coffee dates almost every weekend for years and then when the girls changed career paths; the coffee dates were spread out to every couple of three weeks. We absolutely love each other. I am grateful these days that I have a cell phone as we text all the time. It is a great way to keep in touch. We also speak on the phone as well. Sometimes there is nothing better than to hear the voice of a dear friend. I am happy to say that the commissioned gifts which were paper collages made by my super talented daughter Amanda were a huge hit. She definitely has an artistic gift. I am so glad that I could help support her artistic endeavour and to give something truly unique and beautiful to my friends. A treasure for all time. Gillian and I gave Signe gift cards to her favourite store on the planet “CHAPTERS/INDIGO” and we know that she will enjoy buys books. Oh, the vanilla from scratch cupcakes were a hit. That will be a recipe that I will definitely keep and the icing which I modified from my regular sugar cookie/cake icing I will remember to use again. What a great way to spend a Saturday morning with your friends. I was happily shocked that Mr. Alvin sat on the sofa with his sweater wrapped in the blanket the whole party (he did not lay down, he say up). These gals are the best. Perhaps in hindsight having the birthday party later in the day when the temperature had definitely warmed up more would have been good but despite the chill in the air we thoroughly enjoyed our time together and cannot wait until the next time OR when the restrictions are lifted so that we can get together in the house even if we have to social distance. I have lots of room for that. Better to be together than apart.

After the birthday party disbanded and the ladies went home. I gathered up the remaining items left in the garage and put the furniture back to its original stored location. Another successful birthday party held. I then grabbed a mug of coffee and chilled on the sofa with Mr. Alvin until I had to get ready to leave for the Optometrist’s office to pick up my new eyeglasses. I arrived a few minutes early which is par for me. Do not like to be late or right on time. Although with the COVID19 Restrictions and Protocols, being right on time is actually better. Before I stepped into the entranceway, I donned a blue mask. One of the staff opened the inner door and asked to take my temperature. I told her that I had walked over and would be cool so she asked if she could take it at my wrist and with this new fangled thermometer she took my temperature. It did not even seem that she looked at it unless it perhaps beeps or glows some bright colour if you have a temperature. She asked me to use some hand sanitizer which I was already doing and then to follow her. I had been hesitate about my new glasses after reviewing the photos I had taken from my visit a month ago trying on frames. But when she handed me the new glasses and I put them on, I was in love. The new frames look great. They feel nice and light. I am quite certain that the whole visit took less time than it took me to walk there in the first place. Before I left “Sunni” asked if I wanted some of the anti fog spray. They had mentioned this to me on my second visit and how good this spray was so I picked up one for me, one each for both my daughter and son-in-law as they also wear specs. After that I was on my way back home to Mr. Alvin. At home, I put Mr. Alvin’s sweater back on along with his harness and leash and we went for our first walk in over a week. It has been over a week since the frigid temperatures hit our city. There was a bit of a breeze which was cool but really all in all it was perfect. Bright sunshine. Both of us enjoyed the walk until we were 3/4 of the way home, then Alvin began to hop on three paws. We stopped and I rubbed his cold paw with my mitt. He is too heavy for me to carry although if he was injured, I certainly would find the strength to carry him as far as was necessary. He was good until we were almost home and then another paw. Stopped again, warmed the paw and then we were home. At home I wiped his paws so they were warmed up and dry. Removed our outerwear. Then, I went upstairs and changed as I was pretty warm after being dressed for being in the garage. Then grabbed some laundry and down to the basement to get that started. After the laundry was going, I went upstairs and warmed up a mug of coffee and snuggled with Mr. Alvin. I decided to go and shovel the driveway as it had not been done since the last snowfall. It was not too deep. While I was outside one of the neighbours came home, so we chatted from our driveways.

By this time it was almost time to start preparing supper. Alvin was hungry so I ended up feeding him a bit earlier than usual. I made roasted chicken breasts with roasted sweet potatoes, carrots and onions for my supper.

What a wonderful Saturday.

Well I guess I had better get the remaining laundry downstairs for round two. I was going to give Mr. Alvin a haircut and bath but have decided to do that next weekend. We will go for a walk this afternoon. The sun is really shining brightly now.

I hope that you are having a great weekend. Be safe, take care and be strong.

Continuing to live with kindness, respect, compassion and learning to have more patience as each day passes.

Always, Carol & Alvin

2021

Good Morning ALL. How are you this morning? Is there snow where you are? It be snowing here. Not too much overnight but some that warrants shovelling later on. The fresh blanket of snow gently covers the sidewalks and the rooftops and the roads. When the light shines on fresh snow it reminds me of a field of diamonds, shining ever so brightly. Best of Nature. I love snow and am hopeful that it is only a light blanket that we receive this time. Tuesday morning. Did you have a good sleep? Alvin woke me up at 2:38 a.m. to have his glucosamine chew and to go outside. He pooped and it was snowing. I guess I do not have to tell you that now it is covered by fresh snow. I remember roughly where it was so hopefully in the light of day I can dig it up and dispose of it in the garbage can. ARGH, I should have put on my coat and boots and went outside with him but somehow the idea of going outside at 2:39 a.m. did not have much appeal to me. Not much at all. Oh well, my fault entirely. We then went back to the sofa until almost 4:45 a.m. which was lovely, up and he has his breakfast and then outside again (I know same story and yes more digging will happen when the daylight appears) and then back to the sofa until 6:45 a.m. and then I just had to have 15 more minutes. Some mornings I feel as though I am a robot moving automatically about. In the hours before our first time up – I did have some good sleep. I should have one of those watches or that phone app that can monitor your sleep patterns. I wonder just how much “good” sleep I am having each night?? Likely a great question. Oh well, such as life. If I was not getting up with Alvin …. I am getting up myself to go to the loo. Age?? Likely. Perhaps enough of silliness and the talk of poo and the loo, which by the way takes up a large part of our lives.

Next subject. What is the next subject? I feel a sneeze coming on? I am hopeful that this cold snap will disappear soon and we can go out for walks once again. I noticed some neighbours out walking with their dogs. I just cannot take Alvin out when it is minus 30 or colder with the windchill. The pads on their paws can freeze easily. Don’t they know? Some of our neighbors have booties for their pups and nice coats which makes me happy. They are well looked after. They are big big dogs and need the exercise each and every day. Speaking of doggies, my Mr. Alvin is whining and staring at me from the hallway. What now Mr. Alvin, what now? He is spoiled and that is clear. Too late for us. Oh well.

Almost the end of January, thank goodness.

I had thought of a good topic as I was going to bed and should have written it down as I have forgotten.

Time to head downstairs. I hope that you have a great Tuesday.

Filled with kindness, respect, compassion and patience.

I work on patience every single day as it is not something that comes naturally to me. Personally I think that it does not come naturally to most human beings. LOL.

Always, Carol & Alvin
