In one day: played Jumble, BananaGram, and Scrabble Slam.* In one week: replaced water heater, sump pump, and car's water pump. In one month: whacked knuckle, palm, and pinky.
Something there is that does love a three:
Faith, hope, love
Body, mind, soul
Swim, swam, swum
I came, I saw, I conquered
Eat, drink, and be merry
Three stooges (if you don't count that new one)
Goldilocks and how many bears?
Thurber and me.
I've had two body parts removed (appendix and wisdom teeth). Two of our trio of apple trees are dead. I've slammed two bike helmets onto pavement (while wearing them). Two dogs ran after me last week. Our cat lost a leg and a tail. The power of threes has me--and my cat--worried.
I've eaten just two slices of Jim's glorious fresh bread and the day is young.
*BananaSplit and Scrabble Slam are games akin to Scrabble. Scrabble has been a family favorite for decades, and at this year's Christmas gathering my sister brought these new games. Loved 'em.
