While reading a magazine to Patti last night, I came across a thirty two (32) year old bookmark (dated back to April of 1990) :


It’s wondrous what a hug can do,

A hug can cheer you when you’re blue.

A hug can say, “I love you so.”

or “Gee I hate to see you go.”

A hug is, “Welcome back again!”

and “Great to see you!” or

“Where’ve you been?”

A hug can soothe a small child’s pain

And bring a rainbow after rain.

The hug! There’s just no doubt about it,

We scarcely could survive without it.

A hug delights and warms and charms,

It must be why God gave us arms.

Hugs are great for fathers and mothers,

Sweet for sisters, swell for brothers,

and chances are some favorite aunts

love them more than potted plants.

Kittens crave them. Puppies love them.

Heads of State are not above them.

A hug can break the language barrier,

And make the dullest day seem merrier.

No need to fret about the store of ’em,

The more you give, the more there

are of ’em.

So stretch those arms without delay

and give someone a hug today.

    Seeing Patti looking all beautiful with her flowers makes me want to hug her. I’m a hugger. Until covid, it was mostly a great trait.
    Stay well!
    Hugs from the Bay Area,

        Heading back to the Black Hills, South Dakota tonight. Amy will make the 2 day drive with me and fly back Monday. She’s working as an emt/ambulance driver this summer!
