Of all the haunting moments of motherhood, few rank with hearing your own words come out of your daughter's mouth. ~Victoria Secunda

The father of a daughter is nothing but a high-class hostage. A father turns a stony face to his sons, berates them, shakes his antlers, paws the ground, snorts, runs them off into the underbrush, but when his daughter puts her arm over his shoulder and says, "Daddy, I need to ask you something," he is a pat of butter in a hot frying pan. ~Garrison Keillor

Is this your little Scorpio!?!?!? She looks like one!

Glad you like the clip, dear Yoli!
I love Fridays and my loose-leaf-tea-ceremony every Friday evening brewed in old-fashioned way…

Whatever your work is, hope it is not too stressful or busy.
