As I was wandering around the house early this afternoon trying to walk off a headache that I woke up with, I remembered something ~ earlier, as I lay asleep at around 8am, I had heard knocking on our front door, Stephy answering it and talking for a moment to somebody, and then Stephy coming into my room and saying,
"Mom, there are a couple of Christians at the door who want to see you."
I acted like I was still asleep and didn't hear her. Then she said, "Mom?" once more, and went away to tell the Christians I'm asleep and won't wake up. Nobody bothered me after that, and I went back to sleep for real.
Well, later on as I wandered through the house doing my thing, I remembered what happened early this morning ~ but as the minutes wore by and I considered the details, I became unsure of my memory ~ had that been a dream? ...it seemed SO REAL.
I told Stephy about it, and she started laughing. No, nothing like that had happened.

PLAYBOY tycoon HUGH HEFNER has revealed how drunken JOHN LENNON stubbed out a ciggie on a valuable painting at his mansion.
Hefner had to stop his pals walloping the Beatle after he vandalised the picture by Henri Matisse — whose work fetches up to £8MILLION.
The incident happened during a wild LA party in 1974.
Hefner, 80, said: “He was separated briefly from his wife YOKO ONO and was in a very bad mood.
“He was drinking a great deal. He misbehaved a little bit and a couple of my friends took exception to it.
“He put a cigarette out on a Matisse and one of my friends was going to kick his butt. But he’d been drinking.
“He was under tremendous pressure. And Lennon was one of my heroes.”
Lennon — shot dead in New York in 1980 — was not the only Beatle to party there.
Hefner said RINGO STARR was a regular.
Asked if they got lucky with the Playmates, he replied: “I’d be surprised if they didn’t.”

NEW YORK (Billboard) - Another Beatle is going digital. Ringo Starr has agreed for the first time to release his Capitol/EMI solo catalog online, including 1970's "Beacoups of Blues" and "Sentimental Journey," 1973's "Ringo," and 1974's "Goodnight Vienna," beginning August 28. A collection of six ringtones also will debut then.
The music will be available to all existing digital music services currently carrying EMI content, including unprotected MP3 formats.
Fellow ex-Beatle Paul McCartney took the digital leap this spring, releasing his entire solo catalog online, including his new album, "Memory Almost Full." All McCartney songs are available without DRM (digital rights management) protection.
The Starr move raises further speculation that the Beatles catalog is next in line for digital release. McCartney told Billboard recently that a deal was "virtually settled" but declined to reveal specifics.
