There are things in my life that I just can't help but notice. Observing is yet another hobby of mine. And there are things I see that I've seen before that always catch me by surprise when I see them again. One of them is this sail boat at the marina on White Bear Lake here in Minnesota. The docks are right out the front doors of Kowalski's ... my favorite grocery store in the world! Many mornings ... but not every one because it's not good to have too many good things at once ... I'll stop into Kowalski's for a Starbucks ... one of the great things about this store. When I leave, I try to stop just for a minute and enjoy the view of the lake. It helps me get ready for the day. And every year, when I first notice it, this always cracks me up ... probably more so right now as I just saw the Pirate movie. There's a sailboat out there bobbing up and down ... flying the Jolly Roger! It makes my day the first time I see it each season and now I look for it every time I'm at the store. It's funny, but when I mention it to people, no one has every noticed it before ... but they do now! Seems like they're just like me ... once they see it they can't help but see it each time. One of those small little details that make up the happy moments of my life.
