Once you have the number buy that many marbles and put them in a jar on your dresser. Each Saturday take a marble out and throw it away. That is another day gone you won't ever get back. Freaked me out truthfully. I have 486 more Saturdays with Jr and 590 with Delaney before they turn 18. It makes me emotional thinking about all the great Saturdays I had with my father and how I am living them with my kids now.

I second the men and women in the armed services. Thanks.
