King Tut at AGO

Last Sunday, since I had to fly out of Toronto for business, my wife decided she would like to drive me to the airport and then go see the King Tut exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto's Chinatown district.
It's a four hour, one way drive from where we live in western New York to Toronto, with a border crossing to boot. I was not thirlled with the idea at first and then Terri said, "I know you're aprehensive, but I have promised myself to treat myself to things like this when I have a chance and this is a chance I am not going to pass up."
How can you argue with logic like that? We went and it really was fascinating. To think that many of the pieces of sculpture, and art and gold artifiacts were created 3000 to 5000 years ago was a bit awe-inspiring.
If it were not for my wife's insistence, I would have missed this opportunity. I think I shall listen a bit closer to my wise companion.
I hope you seek counsel and advice from someone like her in your life....someone who is willing to show you how to capture the moment....someone who cares about you and wants to share with you wonderful things. They are leaders in your life too and sometime we are too busy leading to follow a little.
Thanks, H.B.!

Awwww...that is so sweet. I think The FireMarshall (on occasion) seeks my "wise" council.

I think that's a grand idea!!!
Now, let's talk about re-doing the bathroom.....I have some wise counsel on THAT too!

Love you!!
