Good Morning. I didn't realize I didn't get on here yesterday. We had a shower or two this morning also. DH said it was sprinkling when he got up and and we had another sprinkle after that. The sun has been trying to come out but there are a lot of clouds out there.
Last night we ate out with DS, DD and GS at Red Lobster. This was DD birthday dinner. Her birthday was the end of Oct. Now GS's BD was earlier this month and we have to make that up. He says he wants to go to Outback. I don't know why that impresses him he generally always order fries and chicken fingers or mac and cheese. Our very picky eater. At 14 he still likes the kids menu. I had a couple of their chedddar bay biscuits but the rest of my meal was A OK. Garden salad and entree was a jumbo shrimp cocktail. Now the shrimp cocktail would have been a lot better served in a glass of chopped ice but it came on a warm plate.
Today is Sunday and I'm wondering when DH is going to buy his turkey for our Wed. night Thanksgiving Dinner. This is what the kids have decided and then Thu. morning they will leave for the desert. GS will go with his mother. They will all be in a big group and one of the EX's GF will cook dinner for them all. They generally dig a hole in the sand and wrap the turkey and bury it with fire in the hole. DD says it is delishous. She has to take a couple of pies. She said they always have too much food.
Sarah, do you remember Devil Dogs. I think Hostess made them. Chocolate cake oval shapped with a cream filling in the middle. Maybe that is what Jan was thinking of. I loved those.
Louise and Jan, I take Metforim. 500 mg twice a day. Not for cholesterol or diabetis though, but my oncologist said it should help to reduce the fluid in my stomach. And I think it has. My GP nurse was floored when I listed it as a med when she updated my records and then when my Dr. saw me that she again asked why I was taking it. She said it always amazes her to learn of a med for one thing works for something else.
Louise, where in Western Ma. does your cousin live? My DH checks quite regularly on the temps in Ma.where my mothers house is. He said the other night it was 24 degrees. I remember last year they had a big snow storm around Halloween and then not much the rest of the winter. I don't think the fellow that plows the drive for me had to plow but once after that Oct. storm.
