I had a "real" coke left over from my trip, and just thought it sounded good.

Thank you Andy. I always appreciate it when someone answers a question I ask. Personally, I think you made the right decision to just go and pick it up. But did you really think it would be that simple? Detour, getting lost! Ever heard of Murphy's Law? Murphy had his eye on you!

Still unwinding? Good! Enjoy! Take time to process it all. {{{{HUGS}}}}!

I'm willing to admit my sense of direction is world class awful. I almost called the cops once to report my car's being stolen from a mall parking lot because I couldn't find it. I eventually found it.

So any detour is a challenge. I even try to out guess myself and turn left if my first thought is to turn right, knowing I'm always wrong. Those are the times I was right.

Wow, I didn't think there was anybody out there as bad as me! I had to call the attendant one time when I simply could not find my car in a multi-storey car park. So embarrassing when he found it straight away! I had told him I was sure it had been stolen!

As for finding ANYWHERE - I am a disaster.

My cousin's husband makes pulled pork in the crockpot with just a can of Orange Crush. I had it once and didn't think it was that great, but my dad loves it. I like spices in mine.

Andy and Katy, glad I'm not the only one. GPS is my friend. I do OK outside, it's INside big buildings that I get lost! I refer to myself as "directionally disabled."

I'm enjoying a nice clean house courtesy of a Groupon I bought a couple months ago, along with a glass of wine. DH wants to go look at trucks. His Ford Escape is 12 years old and starting to have expensive problems. He wants to get an F-150, since we're doing all this work on the yard. Then he wouldn't have to rent the truck at Lowe's anymore.

I've made CP meat with coke before, it's always pretty good. I clipped a recipe from a newspaper many moons ago that used it. Some say it was Pioneer Woman who started it, but my clipping predates her.
