A 3 part story.

I remember hearing a story about a husband that wanted to divorce his wife, at the hearing the judge asked her if she had anything to say, and she stood up showing her hands, and telling the judge how these hands had cooked his meals, washed his clothes, raised his children, the tired scarred hands had done all that for the man she loved.  (I am sure there is more to the story but that's all I remember).

Part 2, most of my life I have been taken for a younger age than I really am, not saying it's my good looks or anything like that, I just think it's mostly part to clean living, I have never put a cigarette in my mouth, or ever been drunk, I am sure the cancer and a bad marriage or two had the most to do with aging.  When I worked at the airlines, there was one pilot that was quite the ladies man (or so he thought, he got into a lot of trouble with sexual harassment) but when the subject of my age came up he said let me see your hands, when he looked at my hands he guess my age correctly.

So the conclusion of this 3 part story is, recently when I am doing something with my hands I look down and say in surprise who's hands are those.

Feel like it's the same theme this spring, SNOW, I drove to Homer yesterday after work, went to a quilt show, then visited at a friends house for a bit.  Was going to meet up with another couple for a bite to eat and show them the boat, he likes to sail.  While I was on the phone with them, when I was inside the grocery store,  deciding where we were going to meet up, she says "I think its snowing out side", I looked at the people in the store and could hear and see lips saying snow, so I walked to the window and looked outside sure enough it was snowing.  My smart phone is acting up so I couldn't take a picture with that, so dug out the camera and it had a dead battery so couldn't take a picture with that.  Oh well just take my word for it, at least this time, Springtime in Alaska isn't 40 below.
