Puts things into perspective that none of us will be here forever.
I live with that knowledge every day in this building. The folks in this building are getting weider every day. We have florescent lights in the hall. When ever one starts to blink, they swear someone is going to die. Today there were three blinking. So now the word is that someone is going to break in and kill all of us in our sleep. If they do, I will give them the apartment numbers to go to first.

I guess none of us can pick the time or the place, regardless of our age or gender. It's our legacy that goes on for generations to come. You are such a kind & giving person Addie. I am certain you make a positive difference in a lot of peoples lives!

Thank you. I try. Some days it is harder than others.

Got the CPs cleaned up after yesterday's Apple Butter Fest. It was a harsh reality to have to go back to work after a 3 day weekend. I need another 3 days, at least.

Spike left a little while ago. He is very upset with Teddy Bear. When he went to the little store, the woman there got a cold cut end and was tearing off pieces for him. She wasn't doing it fast enough, so he was almost in his lap pulling at it. Then tonight I was boning the rotisserie chicken legs I got when I went shopping this morning. I put the skins down for Teddy and he ran right to them and gobbled them down. Then he ate all the special treats I had for him. Spike is very upset because sitting in his dish at home is a nice full dish of roast beef that he hasn't even touched. Teddy loves roast beef. Teddy has this silly routine when he eats. You can't look at him and the food as a rule has to sit there for a full day. And he refuses to eat out of Spikes hand. But all the rules go out the window when he is here. My laughing at him and Spike doesn't help any.

I bought some nice beef liver. One time when I bought it I cooked up the whole mess of it. I got very sick. So I learned my lesson. Now I cut it down to a small pieces and wrap it tightly for the freezer. So two large pieces are now six pieces for six meals. Lesson learned the hard way.

I also bought some packaged stuff for the freezer. A couple of Jimmy Dean biscuit sandwiches, Hot Pockets, and a few others. Something easy to fix in a hurry when I don't feel like cooking. I didn't read the back. I was afraid to. I knew if I did, I would toss it all back in the freezer. Strip sirloin steaks were on sale, and I got two really nice marbled ones that are 3/4 inches thick. I measured them before I prepared them for the freezer. These will be seared on top of the stove and finished under the broiler. But first they will get salted and wrapped for a couple of hours.

Finished my coffee and cookie, grabbing the cat, and flopping in my chair to snooze while catching the 6:00 PM news. Have been staying up WAY too late and need a little nap before I do anything that involves sharp knives or hot pans...

I just got back from store. I had a yearning for tacos tonight and had everything but the shells, meat, seasoning, lettuce and tomatoes... which meant I had the cheese and onions
I shot about a hundred rounds through one of my .22's prior to that.

Time to refill the fridge since we got back, headed to the store before I fall asleep.

Maybe I'll see you at the store PF? I know, not likely. I'm going to snap ol' Squirt shut and do my own grocery shopping. Then I'll have to come home and work at getting it all into the 'fridge. Uh-oh....
