Cat, you have a wealth of information about Papa's boat. She sounds like a beautiful boat.

Ever since I have had cable, I just have had the basic service. I am tired of all the junk that is available to me. So I called today to see what the cost would be to upgrade. Only ten dollars. I am now wishing I had made the call years ago. While I was talking to the customer service person, all of a sudden the channel I had on mute with no picture came on. Now that is what I call fast service. I will be watching National Geographic and a lot of the other Discovery channels.

Oh she is! And with very, very many thanks to you, I'll bring her legacy on to the new Catina and also to my future family.

Sail on, Catina 1929 - 2014.

With love,
~Cat

Addie, don't forget that a lot of people get kinda stupid when they are sick.

The doctor said that all of Stirling's symptoms are normal for someone his age who has just gotten over the flu. She told him the symptoms of pneumonia and told him to watch out for them.

I finally got my replacement master car key/remote and the key is programmed to the car. It was a very small detour to Swedish Auto, once we were at the doctor. At least it wasn't rush hour on the way home. But, poor Stirling was nauseous in the car. The doctor figures his continuing nausea is because his sinuses are draining into his stomach.

Oh poor Stirling! I'm keeping him and you in my thoughts. That would make anyone nauseated. Uck!

You must have a Volvo, yes?

With love,

Mise en place is done for dinner and I await my lovely lady to get home so I can cook.

That's a nice thing you do, Mac! Full karma points! More karma points for cooking extra for a vegetarian....

Thank you Cat. Yes, I have a 2005 Volvo. Her name is Sigrid. I am very fond of her. Volvos are very good for winter. They like to play in the snow.

Nice job. I saw you even had to make a store run.

My dinner is also started. The sauce is simmering, the pork steak is seasoned, I turned the leftover anchovies into paste for future use, the water is on low heat... need to turn a roll into garlic bread and I'll be set.
