I used to have a recipe for a stuffing bread. You put the seasonings in it that you would put for a bread stuffing. It was so good. Specially when you toasted it. You could smell the sage. When my computer crashed and I lost everything, I lost all my recipes. I had most of them printed out, but not that one. It also made great rolls for a chicken dinner.

JoAnn don't you just love playing with you grandkids? Mine are so wonderful I could spend all my time playing or teaching the 2 oldest how to bake and do some of the savory dish they love.
They make life well worth living.

You should be here when my granddaughter who is age 12 and grandson who is age 11 play cards with me. Boy, are they out to get grandma. We have such a good time. I wish I had some memories like this of my grandmother ( I only had one grandmother, the other one died 10 years before I was born).

I do a lot of embroidery and crochet. So often when someone sees me working on a project, I always hear, "My grandmother tried to teach me, but I wasn't interested. Now I am sorry." Whether is just playing cards, cooking with them, or a craft, it always gives the children happy memories.

When my kids had their first child, I told each one that their first job was to make sure they stayed safe and the second one was to give them love and memories to cherish all their lives.

I would have eaten while he was writing me up

I stuck my registeration sticker in my cup holder because my license plate was too dirty/wet to put it on at the time. And I totally forgot about it. I ran into the district magistrate at the PO and he pointed out my four month expired plate... and then I remembered the sticker... try putting on a sunbaked sticker that is in three pieces

Oh crap, SB. Didn't they send you a reminder? We get reminders from the license plate place, and send them money, and they send us our stickers. However, as DH recently discovered, you don't get reminders from the drivers license renewal place. The TSA agent at the airport spotted it, otherwise we would have never noticed.

Pac!

Concentrate on the good part. You went to the gym! And you had moments when you were feeling great!
