"Time for a new mattress..." 'Judith Whitehead' (Inspiration Sunday)

Time for a new mattress

My husband and I have spent the last almost 40 years sharing a double sized bed. We are almost ready to spring for a new mattress. The last several years we have talked about up sizing to a queen size because we are feeling a bit crowded lately...

I guess our mature sizes"  have managed to spread out over the years.  The down side is the extra new bedding etc. that will have to be purchased for a new bed size.

 The more people I talk to can't believe we are still only in a double bed. The only people I know that use this size were my parents, it seems.  So, here is a survey;

How many of you couples are still managing in a double size bed mattress??
Judith & Steve have decided to spring for a bigger mattress.

P.S.

True Love


For the past 6 years, a dog named Capitán has slept on the grave of his owner every night. His owner, Miguel Guzmán died in 2006 and Capitán disappeared shortly after the family attended the funeral services. They searched everywhere and put out flyers to try and find him. But no one had seen him.

A week later, some people who were at the cemetery late one evening spotted Capitán laying on a grave and they contacted the grounds keeper at the cemetery. The cemetery notified the family who promptly came to pick him up and take him home. But each night he would cry and scratch frantically at the door to go out and he wouldn't return home until morning. It was later discovered that Capitán would walk the 3 miles back to the cemetary each night to guard his master's grave.

It has been nearly 7 years now. The cemetery does not close the gates until he arrives each night promptly at 6 pm. He sleeps there all night guarding the grave until the grounds keeper opens the gate in the morning. This is a true picture of Capitan here http://instagram.com/p/oAJsgmxban/

German Shepherd story,
I can believe this story . Dogs can be this dedicated to their human family. I saw the story on one of the major TV stations as well. That is a very sad story.
