ok, Girlfriend, I need a translator here......let's see........battonet, brunoise, I think that I know what espagnole is but would not take a test on it..........yippee.....I know what a veloute is but I know it's got to be just right...........oh, I would love to be taking a cooking class......better smelling than a bacteriology lab where everything smells like mold........and on an early Saturday morn.............one girl would come in green at the gills for staying out and imbibing all night and leave even greener............your course sounds like fun............:):)

My kids fighting over spinach at dinner. I cooked the spinach in mornay sauce. Can't help smiling still.

How our two dogs have taken so quickly to my Dad living here. Even when he first arrived they never jumped up on him as they do other "visitors". They are constantly lying at his feet or on his bed and really making him feel loved. It has really helped to make his transition from living alone a lot easier and that puts a big smile on my face.

Nothing like a pooch to make you feel special. Just the look in those big eyes can melt you heart. I'm so happy for all of you.I'd give anything for just one hour with my dad and mom.

Kades, I would give anything for you to have that time. It has only been five days since Dad moved in but it feels so right and I know he is much happier (and in some ways healthier) for it! Having the dogs cuddle with him is only part of it, but I know that it is a huge part. I think this arrangement is great for all of us.

Like I said the other night Laurie, they are excited to have Grandpa visit! I'm so glad they have taken to each other so well! My dad sometimes said (jokingly, of course) that he didn't like little kids or cats, and yet they both have always flocked to him. Other than my mom's dog Baby, who only tolerated him and didn't like short men at all, dogs feel the same about him!

I would love to see a picture of your dad with the "grandkids!"

Luvs, a belated congratulations on your midterm grades!

Barbara
