The only folks who notice my heart scar are others who belong to the Zipper Club also. My scar is flat and white. And I really don't care who notices it. I not only wear V neck tops, I also show some cleavage if I feel like it. You would be surprised how many folks will never notice it. And if they are rude enough to mention it, make up some exotic story about how you got the scar. Traipsing through the jungles of Brazil and an animal jumped on your back and scratch you with it claws. Of course you don't know what kind of animal. It was on your back where you couldn't see it. Watch their eyes get bigger and bigger. You were in Brazil with a team from your university looking for a certain orchid for medical research. Everyone knows some of our greatest medicines come out of the jungles of South America.

I just finished breakfast. Hash using smoked brisket with two eggs on top.
Now I need to make a store run to pick up a red pepper, carrots and a couple other items to make Charlie's bigos later on.

I prefer a roast beef hash. Living alone, I get the Mary Kitchen Hash by Hormel. Even though it has tiny pieces of diced potatoes in it, I still cook up a hash brown potato patty and put my eggs on that. With the new way of making that poached egg in a cup and the micro, perfection every time. Nice runny yolk to mix in with the hash browns.

I'm waiting for DH to bring the dog in so we can go to Panera for breakfast and a loaf of ciabatta, and maybe to TJ Maxx. I love the random food items they have.

I am trying to tire myself out so I can go back to sleep. After such a good low pain day yesterday, I had a rough night and only got two hours. I didn't even overdo it.

But at least I had my new computer to play with while I was up. Now I have two fast computers that have features which make access easy for me. I am a real happy camper!

Have I ever mentioned how much I love my wonderful hubby?

Sitting here watching Shrek the Musical on Netflix and working on a recipe for 100% whole wheat bread that I have high hopes for. My niece made it last weekend and gave it rave reviews.

Just got back from the grocery store. I bought some beef summer sausage, I had them slice it thin. Oh, it is so good.

Mmm, summer sausage.

I'm working on the papers for the realtor who's selling Mom's house. She just went independent. Need to figure out something for lunch.

I just put a few rounds through a German pre-war .22 I bought yesterday. Detail stripped a pistol I want to get re-blued. All while keeping half an eye (or ear) on the playoff game.
I think I'll go turn some cabbage, carrot and onion into cole slaw now.
