I think I'd best just plop myself in a chair with a cuppa and stop doing ANYTHING today. I'm a hazard. Anyone around?

Sure. Only allongé if that is your preference. Could be café au lait. I generally make doubles, 'cause I have big coffee cups.

I'm hiding from an overwhelming amount of work I should be doing.

Well, if you need, you can lash out at me as I will know you don't mean it.

I went downstairs to the community room to hear another politician spout his views for the upcoming election for a new mayor. Our present one has been in the office for 16 years and is retiring. I really went down for the pizza. It was a flashback to my childhood. A large pizza done on a square type cookie sheet with pools of olive oil just floating on top. Every corner store sold a tray of it on the counter right next to the register every day. We never considered it a problem that it was uncovered and exposed to everyone touching it. I used to stop on the way to or even home from school and get a piece for 10 cents. You always had to tip it over to let the oil pour off before you could even take a bite. Otherwise it would drain off and stain your clothes. I always like the center pieces. This pizza was done to perfection. Soft bread dough, piles of cheese and then the sauce under the pools of oil. I ate two pieces and then brought up two pieces for Spike.

I can sit with you and have my cup of coffee with you.

The repair man can this morning and changed out the batteries on my scooter. I was afraid of taking it out of the house. The battery would go dead when you least expected it. One time it quit on me in the middle of an intersection as I was going across the street. Not a good thing.

I think I will take some time to play with my little friend Buttons. The house elves seem to be doing a great job taking care of them.

My daughter stopped by today with a present for me. It was a box of Pumpkin Peepers. I love my Peepers. But I have to limit myself in eating them. They are pure sugar.

Bet that room was awfully cozy with the hot air going into it. Oh, and Menino has been mayor for 20 years.

The pizza sounded good. Glad you enjoyed it.
