I agree, finding those lumps is not fun. Picking out a prosthetic is not fun, either.

Indeed.

Hopefully you remain cancer-free, Addie.

I am watching Cook's Country. They are making Gumbo. The liquid calls for 3.75 cups. Why not just make it four cups even? Would it really make that much difference? Sometimes when my son is sitting here and watching ATK or CC, they will mention an odd measurement and we just look at each other . I like both shows, but sometimes they are just pain silly with their measurments.

I guess you could try it with four cups and see how it turns out.

Dang, I forgot to attend my 40th High School Reunion last night in nearby Costa Mesa. I was busy doing my tax returns.

Maybe it's half of a recipe calling for 7.5 cups or even a much larger recipe calling for 15 cups.

Bummer.

I never got any invitations to any of my high school reunions. No one I know lives at the address I had in high school. But, if there is a 50th reunion, I should hear about it because I am Facebook friends with a number of people from my graduating class.

We should have a reunion next summer. My class usually has one every five years. It will be 35 years.

Well, I don't think I missed much judging from the one I attended 10 years ago. I don't care much for them. The herd would have been much thinner this time around, I presumed, considering a graduating class of just under 100 to begin with. Yeah, small class.
I'm still amazed that the reunion committee can still track people down and gather them in one spot. Of course, the internet makes that easy. We all graduated from an Armed Forces run high school overseas and have settled all over the US. But So Cal and Las Vegas seem to be the favorite to conduct the reunions.
