It's just like mine.

Couldn't pass up a $25.00 deal so I bought it. Going to give it to my sons best friend who loves my rotisserie chicken. He's been wanting one of his own forever. He's been busy slowly building up items for his kitchen. It's his First apartment. I'll clean it up today. Invite him over for a rotisserie chicken dinner tonight then give it to him after dinner.

Cuz' I'm nice like that Heh, right...

Well we've set the rotisserie day to Wednesday. It will be more of the usual routine for him. He had a date yesterday anyways. Some guys have all the luck. My husband and I call him our adopted son. He has dinner over here often. He's going to be absolutely floored when he sees that he finally will have his own. Every time he comes over he says " I want one of those!" I check his truck before he leaves just to make sure mine isn't in his back seat.
I can see his big grin smile already.

It's all cleaned up and purdy. Tested it out pretty good yesterday. It works like a charm. Wish him luck with the VHS tape. LOL!!!!
Can't believe what Amazon is charging for the platinum one's it's outrageous now. When I got mine at Macy's it was $89.00 many many years ago. It's still working great. knock wood.

I just looked at the 14 day forecast. No more below freezing after Wednesday, 27 March. Okay, it could still go below below 0C later in April, but it looks good for now.

we had our first little league baseball practice today.

it was great to meet the boys on the field, and teach them how to run through first base, or follow the coaches signs to continue on, and how to field grounders at short stop.

i think that i have more fun than the kids do, hitting balls and shagging flies...

some kids are athletically gifted, some not. but we're already a team. since we're sponsored by a small samdwich shop named keith's bagels, the boys decided we should put our hands in together to start and count 3-2-1 BAGELS!

and at the end if practice, put their hands in and shout 3-2-1 Cream Cheese!

almost all of these kids come from what is considered lower income families, so these lessons reach far beyond our national past time.

life can't get much better.

Shagging flies? Aren't they far too small? Oh wait, googling lets me know that "shagging flies" means catching fly balls. Phew, I was for a moment there.

I know Spring is just around the corner. bt is out there with his boy and other kids who will end up loving him. Only because his is just a boy that is a bit bigger than them.

bt, have yourself a ball. It sounds like you have found your niche in life. And it has to do with kids. They couldn't have a better role model.

Bucky you never fail to make me smile. How you are with your boy and the other kids is absolutely amazing.

Violet never fails to make me smile, though I have been worried about her since Joie passed. She has been so in need of attention, in pain, not eating. But it seems in the past couple of days she is getting to be more old goofy self.

First she helps me "recycle". How she does this is by removing items such as paper towel/toilet paper rolls, the ends from pop can boxes out of the recycling bag and box. We can bury them and she still finds them. She rips them up and them leaves them for us to clean up. And she is so proud of herself when she does it. I was cleaning my office the other day and put a flattened box from my tax software into the recycling pile and she took it and for two days has been carrying it all over the house. We laugh and say she is "doing her taxes"!

Tonight, she was lying beside me on the couch (on her blanket) while I was watching curling and putting together some storage cubes for my craft room. She all of a sudden popped up her head, looked at me, got down and ran toward the dining room. It was 8:02 pm and she wanted her treats. Joie always was the one to "tell time" and run to where the treats are kept - he wouldn't miss a chance for food! Violet would always wait until she was called and let him do all the work. It is nice to see she is picking up where he left off

I have a smile because it is spring break and I didn't have to get going early for work this morning. It is almost 10:00 and I am thinking about getting dressed (after this cup of tea). I have lots to do, but it feels good to relax a bit before I get going.
