The only financial skills I have is spending money.
I just got back from making the rounds to the local gun shops.
And wouldn't you know one followed me home... It's pretty accurate for a little thing.

Now I'm thinking of making a run to the grocery store. I need chocolate syrup and French bread.

Sadly, I have that skill too.

Time for an update from Regensburg!
Frank was released from the ICU Last thursday ;-)
He is making a fast recovery, he walked his first 50m with the crutches today.
He was so exhausted afterwards (no wonder after lying in bed for more than two weeks) that he needed a nap.
After That I organized a Wheel chair and we both made our way to the Hospitals Café where he got himself a huge banana ice bowl ;o)
He won't be able to put any weight in his right leg due to the nailed Upper leg for at least six weeks.
But well… if that's our only Problem ;)

That's wonderful news, Cara! Hoping for a continued speedy recovery for Frank!

Cara, glad to see a very positive update on Frank. I have been thinking of you both and praying for a swift recovery. Hope you are getting some rest as well.

I bet that banana ice bowl tasted good. When I got out of the ICU after my accident that fractured my back, my Mom brought me a Dairy Queen pineapple shake. It was the best milkshake I had ever tasted! That became the tradition after any surgery or hospital stay!

It turns out I am having to keep tabs on the guy repairing our fence as our onsite landscaping guy is short one worker and has to be on the other side of our huge complex replacing him. It's okay as I am feeling so much better than yesterday! And the progress on the fence is pretty good. At least no one will be able to see into our yard and it will be much harder for them to jump over to steal stuff from our freezer....which is now chained and locked, with a security camera over it and two sensor lights that they can't reach to screw out the bulbs like last time.

If they do break into the freezer, all they will get is gluten free bread products and several cakes waiting for decorating in the next two weeks.

LP, if you make sure to label the bread as gluten free, they probably won't get stolen.

And put the other stuff in containers marked "frozen liver". Or "stinkbait".

Cara----- The best of wishes for a quick recovery for Frank. I just don't see how anyone can walk using crutches. Doesn't that hurt the underarm a lot?
