It’s all very odd to me, and possibly illusory, but for the last few days our visits to Anthony, little drives here and there and, today, Ming’s famous NOSEY with Anthony, have reproduced a longlost joy.

Sorry – that sentence was far too long. Oh, and what is a NOSEY? It’s when you ‘kiss’ someone with your nose. We three have now been doing this for nearly 20 years. It’s quite pleasant.

    Julie, What a heart warming picture, somewere someplace I have a “nosey” picture of Allison and I. I maybe forced to dig it out. Take care, Bill

  3. How lovingly divine.

    I didn’t know that’s what nose kisses were called! Do you do butterfly kisses too? with your eye lashes? πŸ™‚

  4. I think that it’s when it is a singular sign of affection only shared by the immediate family that makes it so extremely special and meaningful. I am so very happy that you are finding joy in the little things, it’s often the little things that have the most meaning. xoxo

    What a delightful photo. Just wondering if you & Anthony every used to give Ming ‘butterfly’ kisses when he was little?
    (you put their cheek near your eye and blink several times and the resulting cheek tickling with your eyelashes makes them laugh – if you don’t know what a butterfly kiss is).

    Good to hear you’ve entered this lovely new phase of acceptance and are enjoying what it brings.
