Sheri is always in pursuit of someplace to take Bob and "Al". It was windy and cold so being outside was not an option. So Sheri decided to make a trip to their favorite thrift store. They roamed around for a few minutes and then Bob came across a frame that had words of thanks and appreciation all over it with a nice "couldn't do it with out you" type saying in the middle of it. Bob said "Oh we should buy this so I can take it to "work" (code for Adult Day Center). They can give it someone there who deserves it." Sheri was surprised by his thought process and it was $.99 cents, so Sheri thought to herself sure why not. The next morning while preparing for work, Sheri put it close to the door so they would not forget to take it with them. "Al" picks it up and with a huge smile asks Sheri if she had a chance to read it. Then he proudly states "I am not sure when I got this, but it is an award "work" gave me."
Sheri was not quite sure what to say. (heavy sigh) :)
