And I do have ESPN...does that count?  (And truthfully, my GM had a huge gift of seeing things, My Mother does it sometimes and I have had a few experiences with it.)

See...like right now...I just had a vision of Laurie shaking her head from side to side going, "Pooh, you are so full of crap."

We are all full of crap and those of us (speaking) who have brown eyes are a quart over!  ;)

ESPN, yes. I think that perhaps it's there in all of us..waiting to be developed. Maybe not...but sometimes I can see what's coming or feel the answer to something...

I agree.  I think all Moms have had that whole, "Hmmm...somethings wrong" experience when our children are sick or in trouble.  My Mother will all of sudden pop in my head and I will call her to find out she is sick or she's upset about a friend's passing at Church or something.  I think we all have a little bit of it.

Weirdest thing I ever had happen was when I was 16.  I am blind as a bat without my glasses and I had put my clock radio (or radio clock if you are Holli) across the room to make myself get up in the mornings.  I could not see the numbers, ever.  My GM and I had a special bond, and she was in the hospital in a coma.  She had been that way for a week.  I remember waking up in the middle of the night and turning over and seeing the clock said 4:02.  I remember thinking how weird it was that I could see it clearly, then turning over and going back to sleep.  The phone rang around 6:00 a.m. and Mom came in my room crying.  I knew what it was and was devestated.

Later, when we all got to the hospital, the Doctor told us she has passed away at 4:02.  I will never forget that and always think of it as she was telling me goodbye.

I had a feeling he'd come through...I'm so very curious, but too lady-like to ask.

Oh, that was ladylike!  ;) He sent me a check for $1,500. and said..."Have fun!" I went to my favorite furniture store and got a new hide-a-bed that I can stretch out on when I want to take a nap during the daytime. Mine is a love-seat-twin-bed-sized hide-a-bed and I live in one room. Not cool to open it up in the daytime...so I haven't taken a lie-down nap since October. I doze in my rocking chair sometimes and then wake myself up when my head flops forward. Uggg. When he was here at Christmas, he asked me how I napped on it and I said I didn't. When it comes, I may take before (twin) and after (full) hide-a-bed pictures for you guys.  :D

I just loved teasing you guys for a while.   ;D ;D ;D

And no, he doesn't stay here, of course, although I did bring him over to see my unit when he was here in December so he could picture me on the phone with him for an hour or two every night. Seriously, he has a huge respect for Val.

I liked that part that he didn't care what I did with it. I could have put it away for a rainy day (fat chance) and it would have been OK.

We walk a fine line with this and so far, our families think it's great. I think they are pretty sure we are too old to get into any trouble. (Kids can be so dumb!)  8)

I think your families also realize that you two offer great support for each other.
