hi!
pds, the farm belongs to Franks friend and we didn't visit, because we had family dates on saturday... but it was almost as boring as I feared... I was sooo glad, Frank had his notebook with him...
I still can't understand how some people can spend their whole day in front of the TV... I have my two or three shows I watch and everything else is just dull...

Hi!

Any time mudbug!

Today is our grandson Andrew's 8th birthday. I tried calling to say happy birthday, but they weren't home.

I hope everyone is having a great night!

Barbara

Hi!

How funny! I misread your post at first Cara. You said "online banking," but my mind saw "online baking!" It is after 6:30 p.m. and I am still at work. I have to get my grades on the computer, but I'm not finished grading everything. Just taking a tiny break. Ok, now getting back to it!

Barbara

HI FOLKS:
Sorry to be away so long. DH & I have been relocating & downsizing for the best part of the last three months and are still having to make trips back to get the old home place ready to go on the market. It's a good 2 1/2 - 3 hour drive. Buzy buzy weekend.
Thanks for the friendly welcome(s). I have really enjoyed this site. I found it while trying to figure out why my bean soup wouldn't get tender. While cleaning out the old pantry I found a lovely jar of dried bean soup mix w/ instructions & e'thing. Needlesstosay it had been there a while (probably better than 5 yrs!). Come to find out dried beans do get old!!! Anyway, thanks to some nice people willing to share their experiences - I realized no amount of boiling, simmering or magic was going to help I was able to cut my losses & go for the bologna sandwich a lot sooner.
We've been retired a couple of years now and are about to get the hang of it. Really hadn't planned on moving but the hillside was getting steeper & steeper for some reason!
Thanks again for the welcomes - hope to get to know a lot of you all a whole lot better. . . . Glenda

Hi!

Wow, Glenda, you probably thought we'd abandoned this thread! Thanks for sharing about yourself. I have been so busy with my classes and work that I haven't been around much the last few days. I can't wait to be done with these classes. That won't be until October though. I have a few assignments due tomorrow and Monday. I've had a few days of kidney stone pain this week, which hasn't been too good. When I go to bed at 11:30, you know I'm sick!!!! Anyway, it's the weekend, and I have a couple kid-free days, so I'm happy! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE kids, but this has been about a month-long week. Cara, how are you doing?

Barbara
