Okay, Try This!

Here is a math trick so unbelievable that it will stump you.

Grab a calculator. (you won't be able to do this one in your head)

1. Key in the first three digits of your phone number (NOT the Area code).
2. Multiply by 80.
3. Add 1.
4. Multiply by 250.
5. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number.
6. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number again.
7. Subtract 250.
8. Divide number by 2.

Do you recognize the answer ??

Got that from my niece, Kendra. She belongs to my brother Don. He is the oldest one in the family. Then there is Toby. Millie, me, Kotya, Ruth, SJ, Rebecca, Rachel and Mark.

When I got married, Millie was married in June and then Dad made an announcement - "No more weddings for another two years!" I think he could see that Doug and I were pretty seriously involved.

Doug and I got married in September ---that year.

We didn't make any points with Dad by doing that and... he made sure we knew that too.

I am thinking I will stop the numbers of days since Millie went to the hospital now. She has been opening one eye. So, I can't really say that she is fully asleep. With one eye opened, she is half-awake. ??? So, this will be the last time I do the number of days she is asleep ...maybe.

Day 157.

WHOA! Way cool!

Yeah I read the update on Millie and her one eye being opened. I'm sure you miss her a lot! I'll be saying an extra prayer for Adam since their Anniversary is coming up!

Hugs from you BBF,

Numbers games always stump me! How people can figure them out is a mystery.

Shucks, my comment disappeared! :o(

Well, I think what I said was, "I wonder who has the time to come up with these tricks? That was quite a trick!"

Anyway, I guess Millie is "half-awake". I've heard that she's been taken outside a few times recently! Wouldn't it be awesome if she woke up for Adam on their anniversary? Yeah, I know...we can't put a time limit on her. Only God knows when she'll be ready.

I had a dream about Millie last night. I went to see her. We were alone at first and she asked me to sing. I tried to say no but she kept asking. While I was singing you walked in. Soon after, Adam and Courtney followed...then Marionelle and her gang. I'm not sure who brought her because I didn't see her parents, but even little Tatyana was there.

I know I had the dream only because you and I talked about me possibly coming up there. But it was still a nice dream.

Hi Kerrie,

Just got back from Anchorage.
I went to Anchorage to bizzit the queen... ha. I did go to see Millie but it was not a dream here!

Singing. That was a funny dream. Maybe it will come true for you. So what will you be singing for us? :-)
