A Good Day

I just came across this quote now:

The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love.
Hubert H. Humphrey, Jr.

Don’t know who Hubert H Humphrey, Jr. was but his name is impressive-looking enough to convince us that he knows what he is talking about.  I could have said the same thing, as I truly believe it, but since I’m not ancient/famous/dead, it just wouldn’t carry the same weight. What is it about QUOTATION MARKS that just give a thought that extra je ne se quois?

(Ok…enough of my commentary on internet-quotes from impressive sounding strangers*, and on to our own living smart-guy, Vernon Adams, and his current world.)

The other day, Vernon and company were pleasantly surprised by a visit from one of his pals, Joe.  Not only did Joe bring a ukulele and an original song, he brought this handmade link-toy, that Vernon can eventually move into different shapes, like this giraffe here. Joe calls it a “Zen Toy.”

The toy has already turned out to be quite a practical little gift as the last couple of days Vernon has been working hard to grasp and lift it.  Here is a little video of his progress. He may not be Hubert Horatio Humphrey, but I couldn’t be more impressed with him if he was. (Note to self: soon he will be able to throw that thing at me…maybe I shouldn’t make him work with it TOO much.)

 

I also managed to capture Joe’s beautiful  gift of song on video.  Thanks for everything, Joe. Your gifts keep on giving.
