The Ritz Carlton in Boston was located just around the corner from where I worked. At two in the afternoon, they would serve tea with a floor show of the latest fashions from Saks Fifth Avenue right next door. Tea and finger sandwiches along with tea cakes. Made for a great late lunch break. A favorite spot for the girls I worked with.

We left on another month long road trip across the country and just got back. I lied and said that I was okay to do the trip, but I really wasn't, I should have been in the hospital. I can't remember the first week or two of the trip!
It's been one hell of a year for me and I pray that from this point on, it will be smooth sailing.
No one is more important than yourself. And your health has to come first. Please don't be so foolish again. You are missed when you are not with us.

YEP!
The thing is I DON'T get sick! That was the first time I'd been sick for, wow, my mid-twenties and that's no lie.
Addie, mahalo, thanks for that.

Speaking of Afternoon Tea

HEH! I just remembered something! That was 22 years ago yesterday!! Time flies when you're having fun

A senior moment. I have forgotten "You're Welcome" in Hawaiian.

Well, Addie there really isn't a Hawaiian word, but several phrase in response to "Mahalo" : A'ole pilikia (ah-o-leah-pea-lee-key-ah) -it's no trouble

That's the one I remember. Thanks for curing my senior moment.

Breaktime

Hey, Friends, I'm taking a sabbatical from DC for a short while. Wait! Don't pop the corks on the celebratory bubbly, I will be back. Consider that a promise OR a threat.

IF I am EVER going to have this garage sale I keep saying I am, I have to remove myself from DC (and Facebook, except for stalking my progeny...) cold-turkey in order to make sure I spend no time here. The way it has been going, logging in "just for a minute" sees way more time evaporate than a few minutes. Considering that the "tone" MrsLMB warned us about as being off-putting is trying to creep back in, this seems as good of a time as any to take my breather.

Never fear, Himself and I will be eating. Or at least I will be eating. I'm considering a cooking strike if he doesn't patch and paint the front porch rails and floor. He has no idea how long I can be happy with eating PB and Jelly sandwiches. BwaHaHa!

I should be back before the ghosts spook and the witches fly. If not, send a turkey out to find me, OK?

PS - If you really need to get in touch with me, shoot me a PM through DC. I do get notifications of PMs. Thanks.

CG, enjoy your breather and pace yourself with the garage stuff. Also, make sure there is enough room in your inbox that our PMs don't bounce.
