Dearest Rosie, I am so sorry your still not feeling well, but hope the antibodies will do the trick. Your too sweet to be sick.

Coty and I went yesterday to this place called Rural King, they carry some of everything, even baby chicks. Coty was looking for two more chairs for his front porch I wanted to get two chairs as well, the one Coty has rocks, I love that. Well we get there, and they are just about sold out of the chairs, when we get to the check out counter Coty would not allow me to pay for my chairs, he paid for them and told me, ''I wanted to do something for you since you helped Nana with painting my place." Now I just hope he does something really nice for his Nana. But, that was so sweet of him, and I have two nice rocking chairs to sit in. emoticon

Take care my friend,
Love,
Joan

Good morning from Kentucky Rosie. I hope your felling some better today. The weather here yesterday was just beautiful so my niece Leigh Ann took my van and washed and waxed it, even shampooed the carpets. I paid her, she didn't charge me, and I was going to take it to a place next week anyway, so I thought, ''I'll ask Leigh Ann if she wants to make some extra money." I also told her my van had not had a drop of wax on it since it came off the show room floor. After she was done, she told me, ''I want that van in my driveway EVERY week for a maintenance clean up", I had to laugh at her.
Have a lovely Sunday.
Love,
Joan

Oh Rosie, feel better soon. Like you I'm never sick, so when I do catch something which is very rare, it knocks me for a loop. Will be praying for you a speedy recovery. However, it could be from our talking about roller coasters that has you feeling a bit sick. emoticon
Feel Better my Sweet Friend.

Joan

emoticon Rosie, I just never thought of you as being a roller coaster rider. Faster thing I can handle is the merry go round and some of those horses can get a bit frisky. emoticon emoticon
The pictures I saw on the news that night, the buildings were huge, and the city looks so clean, I was impressed.
Today I'm getting new tires put on my van. My tires are the ones that came on my van, and my van is 5 years old now, it might make it through the Summer on these tires, but I rather be safe than have a blow out.
Have a wonderful day.
Love,
Joan

Oh no it wasn't me I love fast rides and roller coasters but you wouldn't get me jumping from a building, and that building is so very high we have been to the top and looked at the view which is amazing but that's all I will do.

Went for another drive today and had a good look around I really like Dubai very much they are building so many different things here. There is going to be Disney land, Lego land, Marvel and much much more, they want it bigger the any where else in the world. There are so many expats here from all over the world.
Hope you are having a great day love Rosie.

Hi Rosie, now every time I see anything on the news about Dubai, I think of you. Last night was no different. Last night they were reporting on these people ''free falling" from the worlds tallest building located in Dabai. As they jumped all I could think of was, ''sure hope that's not my Sweet Rosie." emoticon emoticon
Have a wonderful day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie, yesterday was such a beautiful day, but all I wanted to do was take a nap. emoticon But, I had so many errands to run and I finally got them all taken care of and by 2 p.m. I was home getting my nap in. emoticon I think if I had to have painted one more room for Coty it would have been the death of me.
Hope your still having a great time, the weather here in Kentucky has been just beautiful this week. Today my new 'fridge, washer and dryer are being delivered, I"m so excited.
Love,
Joan

emoticon emoticon emoticon Rosie, a pound is a pound. Just think if we lost 1 pound each week for a whole year by the end of the year we would be 52 pounds lighter. So its never JUST a pound or even a tenth of a pound. A loss is a loss, and I am so proud of you. emoticon you have proven to yourself you can do this. emoticon Have a most wonderful day.

Love,
Joan

Good on you Joan for planning ahead. That is what I have been doing on this holiday and I have lost just over a pound, I know it isn't much but for me it is amazing as I have always put on weight when I travel, so now I have to keep going strong.

Have a wonderful week love Rosie

wishing you a wonderful day, and a great week. I have a busy week ahead of me, so yesterday I took time to make a plan so I would not get lost with my food choices. Keep getting in those steps.

Hi Rosie, 20,000 steps plus you got to speak with your son and his wife, double emoticon . Isn't that great how that works.
I went to Coty's yesterday and put all his movies and books away for him, then I came home and took a nap. I was so tired, and that nap really did me some good.

Also yesterday Ruthann, and her daughter Leigh Ann, her son Coty and I all met up at a place here in town that were having a 20% off sale over the entire store. I got the cutest door plaque for my front door. I had been looking for one, and I found it and not only was it 20% off, but Coty used my name and by the time he purchased his stuff I had a $10 coupon so I really got a good deal on my stuff. Color me happy. emoticon

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
That is a great idead about you and Ruthann doing your own weigh in and putting money in a jar, a year goes by so fast and it is cheaper then WW,s

My daughter and son rang me today so I walked around with the phone we talked for such a long time I got 20,000 steps in, it didn't cost them anything to ring their on some kind of plan, it was great hearing from them.

Hope you r having a great weekend love Rosie

Rosie, emoticon on making the decision to get the goodies out of your room. I would e just like you, way too much of a temptation for me as well. Great job, but what a sweet thing for them to do.

Coty will be a bit further from me, but not that much further. He will be living closer to my sister now, in fact on the same road.

I am really disappointed with WW's and going to the 10 a.m. meeting is just out of the question for me, that is just too late, and as far as I would have to drive my whole day would be shot by then. I thought about doing it online, but I know that won't work for me. So I've talked with Ruthann and I think she and I are going to put $10 a week in a jar, and we are going to weigh in together and after a year, we will take the money and either go clothes shopping or go do something fun with the money. That is our plan for now.

Have a great day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Didn't think I would get on here today been try of and on all day but the internet was out seems it is up and running now, it's the weekend here and Friday is always a hard day to get on here. Had a quite day in ended up doing walk away the pounds I did the 3 mile one I am enjoying doing them.
Was going to order dinner but I ended up having sardines on toast, when we got here the fridge was full of chocolate plus there was a big basket full of cookies and chips, we asked them to remove it and not to put any more in our room, it would of been far to tempting.

It's good Coty is settled into his new place is it far from where you live? Have you decided if you are going to WW,s or not?

Have a fun day love Rosie

Hi Rosie,
I would be just like you in a place I'm not used to, I would not be comfortable being out and about. However, good for you going on U-tube and getting in a walk, I'm so proud of you.

Coty actually slept in his new place last night. I had to laugh at Ruthann she called me at 5 a.m. this morning to tell me what the plan for today is, and she said that she had to go down and make sure Coty was up because he had knocked his alarm clock off something last night and broke it. Believe it or not, he was up by the time she got there. So for today Ruthann and I are going to pack up what's in his 'fridge and take it out there and get his clothes out of his closet and I think she said he had a few dishes we needed to still pack, but all the furniture is already out at the new place. So very happy about that.

Enjoy your day Rosie.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Coty must love having you for a Aunty your been so busy with his house. Think of all the exercise you must be getting in plus you are probably to tired to eat.

My husband had meetings today and I don't like using the gym here by myself as it is in a very strange place and it is a bit scary, by myself, so I went on u tube and did walk away the pounds plus I walked around my hotel room and I got in over 10,000 steps. We have never stopped at this hotel before it is very nice but I don't know the area very well here so I don't like going out by myself, the other hotel we normally stop at was booked out I like that hotel as a know the area and feel confident to walk around that area by myself. Been really good with my eating I am now going to have a fat free yogurt.

Love Rosie

Hi Rosie, well Coty came to my house for dinner last night and told me, ''I'm moving Friday evening!!"" WHAT???? Are you CRAZY???? Rain is suppose to set in late Friday night and last through Saturday and Sunday, so this is the most logical choice, so today is crunch time for Ruthann and I. Thank goodness I got a good nights rest last night. Today I will be putting shelf paper down in in shelves for him and putting in his kitchen stuff in his cabinets. My birthday is in August, the boy better plan on me a real nice birthday gift. emoticon
Have a great day Rosie.
Love,
Joan

Hi Jaon,
Yes Dubai is a extremly modern city there are buildings going up every where, it has the tallest building in the world, plus the biggest Mall in the world, it seems to be building the biggest of everything here it is also building the biggest and largest airport in the world, there are people from all over the world that lives here a lot of expats.
The weather is nice it is just starting to get hot here it is also a very clean city.

Hope the weather for you holds of so you can get the house finished.

Love Rosie

Rosie, it sounds as if your having such a great time. I've seen pictures of Dubai and it is such a modern place, I just never think of it as being like that. Funny how we get things in our minds.

Ruthann and I should finish up the painting today, which I know we are both going to be thrilled about. Then the clean up will begin and hoping the rain hold off on Saturday so Coty can move.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Haven't been able to get on the internet for a few days I will get on here when I can. Hope you are not over doing it with the painting you really need to take some time and rest. Hope all goes well with your weigh in.
We are still in Dubai and we have been doing really well with our food choices I am trying extra hard this time as I am sick of going away and just putting on all my weight again, plus we have been getting in our exercise I still aim for 10,000 steps or more a day.

Tonight I did have a curry which was lovely but I could really taste the salt in it, that is the main problem when you eat out is all the extra salt they put on the food, I will drink lots of water to flush it out, my husband and I have tried to eat most times at our hotel as it has a kitchen so we went to the shops and got lots of fruit, salads and salmon and chicken, plus yogurt.

Love Rosie

Hi Rosie,
I am so tired this morning. Ruthann and I are still painting at Coty's, and we have to get it done by this Saturday because he wants to be able to move into his house. So we are working extra hard. I am going to run to Owensboro this morning to just weight in, but not stay for the meeting, I need to get back to help Ruthann. Hope your still having a great holiday

Hi Rosie, I began painting at Coty's new house yesterday at 6:30 a.m. and at 4 p.m. yesterday afternoon, I finally told Ruthann, ""I Have to go home," I was so tired, but I rested well last night and am ready to give it a go again this morning. Hope you are still having a nice time.

We had a rain storm yesterday before I left Coty's and it rained so hard for about 20 minutes and we got an inch of rain. I had to wait a bit before leaving to make sure water wasn't over the road I travel.

Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie,
so glad you can get out at least at night and get in some walking. We have rain this morning but yesterday was just beautiful, and Ruthann and I started panting on Coty's house, that is really a big job, and this morning I am exhausted, but it has to get done. Hope you have a good week in Dabai.
Love,

Hi Rosie,
I have posted some pictures of my big day at the Casey's store yesterday. It was a fun time, and now I can run around and not have to worry about paying for gas for some time. emoticon Today Ruthann and I are going to Home Depot to get paint so we can begin painting on Coty's house. I enjoy painting, but also dread it, but I look at it as a great way to get in activity points. emoticon Have a great weekend.
Love,

Rosie, I noticed after you made your post yesterday that we have past the 2000 mark on post in our ''Getting Unsweet" thread. Mine will make 2005 post. I am so proud of both of us, even with our ups and downs, you losing your Dad and me losing Bob we have still stuck it out. Just goes to show you we can get knocked down, but we don't have to stay down. Thank you for taking this journey with me. emoticon

Hi Rosie, have a good time in Dabai and I am so excited that your husband is going to do your diet with you. It will make it so much easier for you to stick with it as well.

I was thinking the same thing just the other day of how long you and I have been the only two that have stuck it on on this thread. Oh ever so often someone will grace us with their presence, but not or long. They just done seem to have the stamina that you and I have to stick it out with this Sugar Free journey Rosie, sure we have our ups and downs, but we show up every single day. emoticon

Have a great trip, and I'll be here everyday, if you do get to show up.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
So happy you had a good trip and you arrived home safely. Thats good news about Ruthenn and also that she see's a good doctor.

I am of to Dubai again tomorrow for my husbands work, I will try and get on here when ever I can. I really want to do better then last time with my diet I am so sick of when I go on holidays I put on weight, so my husband is going to do it with me and together we will be strong.

I think it is great all those times you and I have been on here and that this time we are doing so great staying sugar free, we have come a long way from when we first started.

Have a great week, will get on here again when I can, Love Rosie.

Rosie, your prayers worked. We had a safe trip up and back, and had no problems getting downtown even with all the streets torn up. Ruthann will have to go back in October for another six months check up. While the Oncologist was examining her he did find another spot so he did a biopsy right then and there and we waited for the results and the good news is it was negative. I think this was one of the reason's he wanted to see her again, as he told her, ''this could show up again, just on the other side." I like this doctor he is very good at his job and does not just put a stamp ''your okay'' and send you on. I have to admit, until those results got back I was holding my breath.

Rosie, great news on being back to your weight before Daubi, I knew you could do it.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Hope you are having a great trip and you have arrived safe, thinking of you.

Still getting sand storms here. I have got back to my weight I was when I left to go to Dubai. Have been exercising and getting in over 10,000 steps a day.

Stay safe, Rosie.

Hi Rosie, I wanted to let you know I won't be turning on my computer tomorrow morning. I know if I get on my computer I'll mess around and be late getting myself out of the house to pick Ruthann up. So you won't hear from me until Tuesday morning. Hope you have a great weekend and Rosie send up some prayers for Ruthann and I a safe trip to and from Louisville.
Love You,
Joan

Rosie, I posted in the thread from yesterday that I received a call from the store manager yesterday telling me that my receiving the free gas card has been postponed until next Friday the 17th. The store manager misread the email from his boss. So won't be getting free gas until next Friday, so guess I'm going to have to fill my tank up after all.

We had rain last night, but nothing as bad as some place got it, so for that I am very grateful.
Have a wonderful day.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I am so happy that you didn't have to go on your trip today and you sorted it out, my prayers were with you. I am sure when you go up there on Sunday it will be a lovely day and you will have fun in the car talking with your sister the drive will go quick, it will be nice for you to catch up with your friend.

Well done on your weight loss this week you really are doing great, I am trying to lose the 2pounds I put on when I went to Dubai, at least I got straight back into my program and exercise so I am happy about that, I do not want to give up.

Have a great day, stay safe away from those storms love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
I was able to contact my friend Karen and she will be available to make the run downtown with Ruthann and I after we get to Louisville. So I won't have to go up there today, and I'm so glad due to we are having a thunderstorm as I type. The weather this weekend is suppose to be nice no rain or storms so this will just work out so much better.

Went to my WW meeting yesterday, I lost another pound, color me happy. Hope you have a great day, and thanks so much for the prayers.

Love,
Joan

Dear Rosie, I am so torn on what to do about leaving town tomorrow. I HAVE or should say NEED to go to Louisville because Ruthann has to see her Oncologist on Monday and he is in downtown Louisville and there is so much construction going on downtown I need to go and make some trial runs with my friend Karen to make sure I can find my way down to cancer center and back out of town without getting killed or lost. I do have a place to stay, which is nice, but here is the problem, the weatherman is calling for storms both Wednesday and Thursday. Once I'm there I'm okay, but I hate the thoughts of getting caught in one of those storms while I'm on the road. So Rosie please pray for my safety, due to I feel sure tornado's are going to be part of this weather system. Ruthann's doctor's appointment is for 8 a.m. on Monday morning so she and I will go up on Sunday and we are staying with a friend of mine on Sunday night. Its just Wednesday and Thursday that has me concerned. I'll probably leaver around 8 my time tomorrow morning. I'll keep you posted.

How sweet buying your granddaughter a new bedroom outfit, she will love that for sure. I still cannot get over the pictures I've seen of the sand storms on tv. Stay safe.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
So happy you had a nice day yesterday, it must be so nice for you to be with your family. Are you going to Louisville to see anyone, and have you got people you can stay with, are you going by yourself, are the roads good to drive on there.

Havn't done much today, we might be going out later to look for a bed room suit for my little grandaughter we will send it to her, she lives at our house with her Dad, her parents are divorced she is a little sweety and I am so proud of my son, he is a great Dad. Still dusty here today the dust really gets into your eyes when we go out, so I will have to put eye drops in.

Have a great day Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie, had a nice day with my sister and her family yesterday, and had not problem staying clear of the sweets, which always makes me feel empowered. Hope your Sunday was a nice one. We have rain coming in again this week, and I have to drive to Louisville on Wednesday and won't be back until late Thursday, so I won't be online at all on Thursday, thought I would let you know this now so you wouldn't worry, I'll tell the other's on Wednesday. Have a wonderful day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Yes it does mess with the cars you need to take them in for a services after a sand storm. Today looks a bit clearer it is getting very hot here we have had the air conditioners on all day.

Hope you have a lovely time with your family I am sure you will.

Love Rosie.

Rosie, when you all get sand like that does it mess with the operation of your car? I saw the footage on the weather channel for Dubai and it was really scary. So glad your back safely and that you had a good time. Happy Easter. Having Easter dinner with my sister and her family today.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I just wrote a long post and went to send it and it disappeared I hate it when it does that. We are back in Saudi we had a great time away. Dubai did have a sand storm and I was able to take lots of photos of the sand storm.
They had a even bigger sand storm here in Saudi, we left our car at the airport when we left and when we come back the car was covered in sand you couldn't see out the window's you couldn't even see what colour the car was.

You did so great with your weight loss you are doing so well.

Hope you have a great weekend love Rosie.

Hi Joan,
So glad you like your new doctor as that always helps.

Yes you can get fresh dates here, I think Saudi is the date capital of the world there are so many different types of dates here and you can get them every where, when you go to some ones house here the first thing they do is give you arabic coffee and dates.

We are going to Dubai for about a week I will try and get on here when I can. Hope you have a wonderful weekend,
Love Rosie.

emoticon Rosie, you are so right the only way to be safe is NOT to allow ourselves to have the sweets around us. My nephew Coty is trying to get off the sweets and I told him, ''the first thing you need to do is rid your house of ALL temptations," so he cleaned out all his cupboards and as he told me, ''all my cabinets are empty now." As I told him, but that stuff won't be calling your name now either. I know exactly what you mean, we never get completely over the cravings, hang in there. Someone told me that when they want something sweet they will eat dates, can you get fresh dates?

I really liked my new Gynecologist, and the next thing I'll have to do is set up a mammogram. Have a great day Rosie, and stay strong.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Hope everything goes well at your doctors today, and you really like them as that is important.

Last night I felt sooooo hungry for something sweet, I haven't had anything sweet in so long it was lucky we didn't have anything in the house for me, so I went to bed early instead. I feel as though we never get over the cravings of having something sweet, and I always have to be very watchful, the only thing for me not to have them is not having them in the house.

Have a great day,
Love Rosie

Hi Joan,
2 pounds that is fantastic, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
I am so proud of you.
Boy you do get some horrible weather there with the snow now the rain, I hope you do start getting some lovely weather soon..

The rain seems to have stopped here and the dust storms have gone so far. I know by April it will start getting hot here, at the moment the weather is lovely.

Have a great Joan, and well done again on that weight loss. Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
the rain is on its way, and from what the weatherman is saying we are going to have some thunderstorms with it as well. I had a good weigh in yesterday, I was down 2 pounds. We had a different leader yesterday, she was not in my opinion very good, but she said she had been a leader for about 5 years, I left unmotivated. Also the numbers in our meeting were way down, so not sure what that is all about either, but I had a 2 pound loss which made me happy. Hope you have a good day today.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I know what you mean about hardwood floors showing the dust we had them in our house in Australia and when I open the blinds to let the sun in all I saw was dust it drove me crazy.

It's pretty dusting here at the moment the rain has stopped and the dust storms have started I will try and see if I can upload a photo of the dust storm we have.

Have a great day so happy you have sunshine, also hope your pinched nerve is better.

Love Rosie.

Good morning Rosie,
thanks for the condolences for my Godmother. I still find it so hard to believe she is gone.

The weather was so nice yesterday that I opened my living room door and let the bright sunlight shine in, then I saw how dusty my hardwood floors were, lol lol lol. Glad your cold is over and done with, and hope the rain has stopped for a bit. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Love,
Joan

Good morning Rosie,
I had a great trip yesterday, left a couple pictures over in the other thread, and the story about my Godmother's passing, that was very sad to find out yesterday. Benny and Roselee seem to be doing great, and I did not get to meet the new caregiver, but the house looked very clean, like it was when I was the caregiver, lol lol, so I have hope for this person, lol lol. My hip did not give me much trouble at all yesterday and I was afraid it might with that long drive and so far this morning its not bothering me at all, which surprises me, but makes me very happy. Hope your weekend was a nice one.
Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie,
my hip might be a bit better this morning and if it is I think it due to Ruthann had some antibiotics that she had just gotten filled so I began taking those yesterday, and I do think the pain is less this morning. Keeping fingers crossed that it is.
I won't be going to Ruthann's this Sunday because I'm driving to Louisville to spend the day with Benny and Roselee, its Roselee's birthday, she's 87 today. I was dreading the trip yesterday when my hip was acting up so badly but if it hurts no worse than it does right now I think I'll be fine. Hope you feel better and have a great day today.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I do hope your hip gets better soon, maybe it is the change of weather that has made it play up.

Are you going to your sister's tomorrow? We have had a quite weekend I have a bit of a cold not to bad, it is the first cold I have had here for the whole year, I find I don't get colds like I use to I think its because the weather is very dry here, and of cause the winters are mild. Or it could be because most all the woman here only show their eyes their faces are covered so no germs spread. But I suppose that can't be the reason as the men show their faces.

Have a great day and weekend hope your hip gets better soon,
Love Rosie.

emoticon Rosie, sure hope the rain stops soon. That is a lot of rain for you all. Its was overcast here all day yesterday, did not rain, but damp and cool which did not make my hip feel well at all. I used an ice pack and heating pad both yesterday, and it felt some better. I'm finding there there is not much they can do for a pinched nerve.

Hope today you have some nice sunshine, and here's hoping you have a very nice weekend.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
It must be horrible to have a pinched nerve, I hope you can find a good doctor that can help you so you can get out in the nice spring weather.

It has been raining everyday here for the last 4 days, and the roads here aren't made for so much water some places are knee deep when we get out of the car. The days are nice and sunny then it starts to rain about 5pm we normally only have about one to two days a year of rain, but 4 days in a row is very strange.

Have a great weekend Love Rosie

Good morning Rosie,
I am dealing with a pinched nerve in my hip and its been giving me fits. I'm going to have to make a plan to go to rehab for this, but just hate the thought of doing so, but I don't think its going to get any better unless I do. Problem is none of the PT places here in my town are in my insurance network the closest one is an hour away. Things like this drive me crazy. Another thing to have to deal with. But today is the first day of Spring and I need to get this hip fixed so I can get out there and enjoy the nice weather we will eventually have. Have a wonderful day Rosie.
Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie,
yesterday I got my hair cut, I wear my hair cut short, and I'm always amazed at how fast it will grow, so that was my chore for yesterday, and it was cloudy and cool so it was a good day to get that done.
I think its raining out there this morning. Gotta get my garbage can down to the end of the driveway, today is garbage pick up day. Nothing new going on here, as you can well tell, lol lol.
Have a great day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie, I was down 1.8 pounds. It was a two week total but I didn't care, I lost weight the two weeks I was stuck inside. Yesterday I took two short walks. My hip has been giving me some problems, and since I could not be out walking with all the snow I'm having to start again with the baby steps, so I began yesterday with two short walks. Hope you had a good day yesterday.
Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie,
when you have the dust storm and even if your windows are closed does dust still get into your home? I've often wondered about that.

Today is my WW meeting, have not been in two week, but I think I have done pretty well, will get on the scale and take what it gives me. Have a wonderful day.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
That is so nice that your brother in law washed your car, he was really on the go washing all those cars. Where we live we have a caretaker that looks after our building and one of his jobs is to wash everyones car that lives in the units, he does such a good job we are happy that he does that because this is a very dusty place to live, we always give him extra money for this job.
Good choice on the Turkey burgers, and so happy you are having lots of lovely weather.

We had to close all the windows today as we had a big dust storm, but it has passed now.

Love Rosie.

Good morning Rosie, it was just the perfect Sunday. When I got to my sister's and brother-in-laws yesterday my brother-in-law was washing my sister's car, then he washed his truck then he washed my van, then he washed his farm truck, by then it was dinner time, after dinner he then washed Coty his grandson's truck. I told Terry you should put a car wash sign up out there, my van is so nice and clean I just love it and it even drives better. emoticon Ruthann, Leigh Ann and I had turkey burgers and the guys had hamburgers all grilled outside, sure sign of Spring.
Ruthann and I even sat on the front porch yesterday it was so nice and today is even suppose to be nicer, all for that.
Have a great day.
Love,
Joan
