I don't want to give them any ideas. They might call me to bail them out of jail!
To look at these two very interesting people, you would think they had no home. Yet their home is worth well over a million dollars.
The man worked very hard for everything they have. I can listen to his stories for hours without getting bored.

My husband said, "Just walk in carrying a gift-wrapped box" but I said "Just take an empty envelope and put it in the envelope holder." Or, to be nice, put a few bucks in it. After all, you're getting free dinner.
This happened at my sisters wedding. The church was downtown and someone actually tried to do this. No gift though.

Do they only have samples on the weekends?
Yes, I bought two bags of pot stickers. Price is excellent compared to grocery store.
Costco has samples every day. But weekends, starting Friday are when they really do it up.

You would probably never go hungry provided you could find enough weddings to crash.
I ended up making the wedding crasher at my sisters wedding a very nice plate and politely asked him to leave.
I kinda felt bad for the guy.

That's my solution for augmenting the little money my SS gives me each month.

And I might meet a very wealthy senior citizen who just might want to marry me----- or keep me in the manner to which I'd like to become accustomed!!!

Today lunch will be chicken salad stuffed into Campari tomatoes (the little ones). I like making 'small plate' items for lunch.

I had a bit of mac and cheese spiced up with some Tabasco.

Cooked up some Ling Ling potstickers we found at Costco. DH is now totally smitten with them, he loved the included sauce as well.

I had leftover sliced Greek-seasoned chicken, cucumbers and homemade pita chips with homemade tzatziki sauce.

Will be out this evening so lunch was dinner. Tagliatelli with tomato and roasted pepper sauce and Parmesan Regg followed by plain yoghourt with lemon curd stirred in and a handful of grapes.

Don’t look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.
