My Father is a CLL

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ABBY HILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Believe it or not, my father is now a CLL. He was honored to recieve this certification over the weekend. He had to go to High Point for this lofty distinction. Douglas M. Hill is 1 of only 34 CLL's in the state of North Carolina.

A CLL is a Certified Laughter Leader. I was enlightened of this fact last evening when my mother told me I was in the presence of a Certified Laughter Leader.

Dad then demonstrated the "Cell Phone Laugh"....You are talking on the cell in a public place, you see someone you know, you point at them, and (while still holding the phone to your ear) begin to laugh and continue pointing. There were 4 other people in the room and within 30 seconds my dad had us all laughing hysterically. His Laughter Leading skills were in full effect.

Who knew such certifications were available? To learn more about being a Laughter Leader you should visit

I am sorry it has been a while since I blogged. Once we get internet set up in our own house, it will be much easier. Right now Ashley and I set up our "studio" apartment in Meemaw's basement. It is working out really well. Meemaw is really nice and is taking great care of us. Things are moving along well with the house and the job. Hope all you readers are well.
