We lost our Arnie this last weekend. I could write endless tributes about his kindness, selflessness and his laughter ... he was such an amazing human being. I will miss him every day of my life and I don't know how I will live in a world where he no longer exists. I know he is with God his Creator, and with all our loved ones who have passed on. One thing Arnie loved to do was DANCE! And he and I would tear up the rug in the great by-gone disco days. This is a little clip from American Bandstand. Arnie is wearing white pants, striped shirt and blue sweater tied around the shoulders. Unfortunately, there are about five other guys dressed the same way! LOL! But he is the cute one dancing with the tall girl in red. Rest in Peace my dear, sweet cousin, and I will see you when I get to the other side. ♥


  1. Please accept my sincere condolences on your loss.

  2. Debbie, I'm so sorry to hear that arnie passed away. My condolences to you and your family. He's tearing up the rug under the disco ball in the sky now. RIP. God bless his family during this difficult time.

  3. Deb--I am so very sorry, my love. So unfair. May you take some comfort by being with all those who loved him. Big hugs to you.


  4. I'm so sorry for your loss.

    I couldn't help but notice how fit everyone looked in that video. We should all dance like it's 1974 again.

  5. Appreciating the dedication you put into your website and in
    depth information you present. It's good to come across a blog

So, after my husband told me that I was mean to him I decided to make him his favorite dinner.  Roasted chicken, Stove Top stuffing and corn.  Hearty comfort food.  As you all know, our rule is -- whoever cooks, the other does the dishes.  

After enjoying our meal, and good night of TV, we headed upstairs to bed, BUT ... Danny remained downstairs, went into the kitchen and started doing the dishes!  As I relaxed in bed and heard him clanging the dishes as he did them I almost felt bad for him and contemplated telling him to forget the dishes ... do them tomorrow.  But I didn't.  I felt I had to stick to my guns.  

That morning, Danny was planning to spend the day with a friend at a racquetball tournament.  I was still sleeping as he kissed me good-bye.  I told him to have a good time and thanked him for doing the dishes last night.

When I woke up, THIS is what I found in my sink.  

I only wished I'd taken the picture before all the suds went away.  THIS is how Danny does dishes.  …


Danny has this disgusting habit of brushing his teeth and then rinsing his toothbrush and leaving it ALL WET in the toothbrush thing.  (See photo below.  A roll of toilet paper he sets on the counter like a cup and then sticks his toothbrush in the middle of it) ... what a genius huh?

The point?  Adisgusting, wet toothbrush will collect bacteria and mosquitoes and it's disgusting and filthy.  It drives me crazy.  Does he stop?  NO.  

What you're supposed to do is brush, rinse with HOT water and then DRY THE BRUSH THOROUGHLY ... THEN put it in the toothbrush thing.  IT'S NOT THAT HARD.

And how hard is it to take the yogurt OUT of the plastic bag?

God forbid he break a sweat. 

 Also, he never EVER closes a drawer, a cabinet, or a door ... EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't you HATE when your husband makes hamburgers ...

*sigh* ... my life.


An Ode to Viggo
Who knows where or when my love for you began it took me by surprise and filled up my whole life
Some laughed and called me mad but I knew that was sad for love cannot be mocked and Viggo, my world rocked
I've seen his every film, his songs, his poems and still I love him more each day and that's how it will stay  for in my dreams he lives
Each step through ether's door we meet forever more and so shall it remain until my life should wane
