Well, I'm excited!

Home Depot has a great moving Witch. I would love to have it, but can't justify spending that much money for one day. Also, now that all the families have grown up, we are all senior citizens and only get about 10 kids.

It's great to hear you say that. I hope you told/showed her how much you're enjoying having her home.

I just ran out to the store to get some more soda for The Pirate. I don't want him to become dehydrated. It wasn't raining when I went out the door. It was pouring when I came out of the store. And of course I kept banging my finger. Being diabetic, that finger is taking its sweet time healing. Even with the sulfadiazine. That is an ointment that promotes tissue growth.

Thank you for your comments. Yes, I missed her and she knows I'm happy to see her.

It's not like the "Old Days". Except for her cruise, she was in FL so we talked several times a day.

Addie, I was a born again bachelor for 10 years before I met her. I've had enough of that. I did enjoy cooking some of the dishes that are taboo for her. Sadly I didn't get to them all.

Just got back from Kohls with grandson. He needed new shoes for this school year. We had to get them in the mens shoe department, because the boys only go up to a 7 and he needed an 8. Of course they cost more but we sure got a good deal. They are regular $70 on sale for $39 and I had a coupon so, with the tax they were $29.95. On the way home he kept saying, I really appreciate what you do for me.

Every kid needs an adult in his or her corner.

Sound like you two are very lucky to have each other!

Went to Costco, I got my coupons for freebies in the mail from the Living Social Costco deal. Got my free pie (darn that thing is HUGE), rotisserie chicken and big 30 count toilet paper. They had gas for $3.09 a gallon, that's a really good price around here, I haven't seen gas that price in a long while! They also have an awesome deal on LED light bulbs, subsidized by our power company, they average about $2 per bulb, I buy some every time we go in.

A pumpkin pie? I got my first of the season the other day.

Well, you dirty rat, you. The Living Social Costco deal is only available to new members! And it expired on Sept. 15!

No, I'm not bitter...
