I have a young, sturdy plant that sprung up (one of nature's gifts) and recently identified it to be a young ash tree! It cannot remain where it is (would not be room), so I have unearthed it now and will be taking it to a recycling depot to leave there, labelled, in case someone wants to take it home.

Honey Were Home

Were back from our vacation.We both had a good time.
Met with a real estate broker.It's going to be hard finding a single level home where we want to move to. I'll find it eventually. I've been told it's my turn to make the decision of where we move to. It will be our final stop. So it has to be a good choice all around.

*No pressure.* Really. So they say.

Once I've re acclimated to our home elevation I'll post pics. I'm just very tired.We drove pretty much straight home. So my body's achy.Legs are hurting.By the looks of the house I've been missed. Our dogs insisted we keep the bedroom door open all night. They don't trust Dad anymore. He's in the dog house (again) with them. Poor Dad.

Sorry I missed you on the road Princess. Maybe next time.

Good to hear you enjoyed your vacation Munky.

I'm about to head to Costco for some shopping.

Just got back from Costco. It was pork day for me. I bought a three pack of baby backs, a four pack of tenderloins and a four pack of bacon.

I plan to smoke a rack of ribs and some ABTs this weekend.

I just started on making some potato salad for a side. Cole slaw comes later.

That was funny! I remember when my husband and I had our car and all of a sudden it wouldn't start. We called for a tow, the guy from the shop brought with him an alternator. Hadn't even looked at the engine. Just knew from the way I told him what was happening when we tried to start it. He installed it right there at roadside. Never had another problem. Sent us a bill for just the alternator. No labor charges on the bill at all. Ya gotta luv someone like that. We did remember come Christmas time.

Ditto here Munky. Getting away every so often is good for the soul!

Yes it is!
It's also told me to get while the getting's good.

I can't believe the gears are finally in motion. Being stuck in neutral for so many years hasn't been that much fun. I've learned to work with what I have. Be thankful for the fact that when we go everything that's been tolerated will be left behind.

Clear blue skies ahead. :)

Dawg, I hope they figured out the problem with your car and that it's now fixed.

Munky, good to see you back, and glad you had a nice vacation.

It's a rather cool and cloudy day today, good chance of rain this afternoon. It's a stay inside kind of day. I'm making a pot of Zuppa Toscana, it's simmering on the stove now and smells so good.

As long as I'm in the kitchen, I'm hoping to get around to making a loaf of banana bread or two. I've got 4 very ripe bananas that are yelling at me to make some.
