The awful news of this weekend put a bit of a damper on it, but yesterday Mrs. FRP and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary. How she puts up with my nonsense, I will never fully understand, but I got smart enough not to question it a long time ago.

This isn't personal but still a happy-inducing thing. Grandson takes 80something grandmother on road trip to national parks. In one video, she's rolling in the sand at Great Sand Dunes.

Sloths are cute. Males are solitary. I just wonder why, when there are quite a few sloth rescue rehabs in Panama and Costa Rica, they would be brought to the US?

I'll shut up now.

We have to give a big welcome to the Primrose Pickle. The neighbor of a friend rescued Pickle’s litter, and they named all the kitties with names of flowers. When the grandkids saw her first photo D said, “Let’s call her Pickle”. So her official name became Primrose Pickle. She’s not afraid of anything or any creature, except Trudy, senior extremely large old country cat, compared to Pickle’s bitty self that is, not that Pickle seems to mind Trudy’s attitude in the slightest LOL!

Candle creations light the way to empowerment for adults with disabilities

It was Schmidt’s daughter Jessica who has CPS 1 deficiency, which causes toxic levels of ammonia to accumulate in the blood, who inspired her to start making candles in her home many years ago. Three years in, the effort grew to where 10 to 15 of Jessica’s friends with special needs would gather in a social atmosphere where work and fun took center stage.

“I wanted to give (Jessica) a purpose. I wanted to give her a productive life,” said Schmidt, who knew at that point a business was blooming. “We started making candles in the bedroom and I could see that Jessica really loved it.”

“We want (those with intellectual and developmental disabilities) to shine both as people and as skilled candle makers,” Schmidt said. “These are their products and we want them to take pride in that. They all have unique personalities but are driven toward the same goal, and that is to succeed.”

“When I started ScentsAbility, there were very few, if any, nonprofits that had a retail product,” Schmidt said. “Now it’s become a little more popular. We are the longest running company of this kind in Florida.”

Me.

I've been experiencing absolute happiness for a couple of months now.

Which is pretty froody.

This will be my last post on the Fogbow as Slarti.

Love you all!

I thought this was a sweet thing for the truckers to do.
