Homeward Bound....

Single digits, baby! We're down to single digits. BSD should be home in less than ten days. And Pandora, played the perfect song for me when I fired her up this afternoon. It's eerie how that station reads my mind.



And I'm half expecting BSD to look quite like Art Garfunkel when he arrives. As he has warned me that he has not had a hair cut. Since he left. Three months ago. I think I'll get him an orange turtleneck for Christmas. So he can really rock that retro 60's look. I never realized how much he resembles Mr. Garfunkel. They even stand alike.

Maybe I'll tease my hair big, snap-on my long fake ponytail, rock some go-go boots and join him. It'll be just like the good ole days.

Photo circa 1995 or so. Us in Hawaii. Just dating. Prekids. Prebrow waxes. Preflat Iron.

And just like NORAD can track Santa along his Christmas Eve joyride. We now have our own site to track BSD's voyage home. How cool is that!?

Homeward bound
I wish I was
Homeward bound
Home, where my thoughts escaping
Home, where my music's playing
Home, where my love lies waiting
Silently for me

Great picture of the two of you. And you're right - he does look like Art Garfunkle.

Isn't it crazy how well Pandora knows you. I had a facebook discussion on my wall about that very topic about a week ago!.
