Poor Shrek. Will he be at the hospital waiting for you to come out? I love being scheduled early in the morning for surgery. I usually am still sleeping when they come in to get me ready. And the first thing I ask when I wake up is, "When can I go home?"

I just got home from a drive into the city. It is BRUTAL out there. Zero visibility and maybe 25 yds when you can see. Gotta love the idiots driving without lights.

We'll be thinking of you, Ogress! Take care of yourself and make Shrek wait on you on hand and foot.

With love,

Just when you thought winter was waning it comes right back to slap you in the face. I've got snow running from 3" to 10" already. I better check my beer supply

Wwe don't usually get a lot of snow early in the winter. Most of our big storms come later in Jan., Feb. and Mar.

And for me that is 6:30 am!

Seriously, your Ogerness, you are well loved and will be feeling a lot of love, positive thoughts and prayers no matter what time they operate!

Josie, glad to see you're surgery went well. Hope everything heals up good and quick.

Cat, so sorry so many of you have been sick or hurt this Christmas season. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

PF, good luck with the surgery. Tell Shrek he's lucky to have the privilege of caring for you when you come home. ;-)

Andy and all the rest of you that are battling the germs, get well! After all, starting tomorrow you'll have to tell people you've been sick for two years!

I am about to eat half of this Russian Tea Biscuit that we bought at West Side Market yesterday. The teaspoon is for size comparison.

Half of that sucker is probably half the calories for a day! I'll enjoy every one of them.
