Rather interesting juxtaposition for sure. Reminds me of growing up. My father was a doctor and we lived directly across the road from the undertaker. There were plenty of jokes about that. I've heard them all.

My husband warns them."Watch out, it's the Munky show" just let her go.

And to think I could have been an actress,but I wound up here.It's ok I don't have to look good, just need to be clear.Oh great.Eagles tunes will be stuck in my mind all day.

As far as having one built.It hasn't been discussed.I think it would be too time consuming, stressful.We just want to go.I would get the kitchen that's built just for me.I'll toss that option to my husband and see what he thinks.
Well, when you get to the age where you need one of the mobile seats that take you for a ride up to the second floor, think of all the fun the grand kids can have playing at your home. My daughter bought a two family home. She took the second floor apartment for herself because it was bigger. She failed to realize that the second floor also included an upstairs (third floor) for two of the three bedrooms. He legs are paying for it now. The set of back stairs that lead to the yard are so steep, I have to go up them on all fours. Quite a sight to see. She could definitely use an electric chair there.

Yeah, a sense of humor is an absolute necessity in life. It makes getting through life more fun. I can always find a way to turn any disaster into a joke or be able to see the funny side. One time I was at a wake for a friend that died. A bunch of us were in the smoking room. All I did was say one line that was funny. We all started to laugh so hard that the funeral home director had to come down and ask us to be a little more quiet. That only made the situation worse. We ended outside on the sidewalk until we could get ourselves under control.

Katie, I can't tell you how much I love Pistachio Fudge! Years ago you could buy it at a little candy shop here but it went out of business. For the longest time, I looked for pistachio extract but it seemed to be only available in huge quantities for professional use. Maybe a year ago I finally found the extract in a little bottle and ordered it from now I can't remember where. Big help, I know. Anyway, I guess the hunt was more important than the find, and I forgot all about it till now. If I put your recipe in a safe place where I won't forget where I put it, I'll try to remember to make it. I know the pistachio extract will make it perfect.

Oh, me too! I've been accused of the "I laughed so hard the tears were running down my leg" problem by some of my friends and family!

Too bad we don't live close. You and I could have a really fun time at some comedy club's open mike night.

Nope, not from there, but thanks CG. I needed a magnifying glass to see the website on this teeny little bottle...

What's interesting is most commercially produced pistachio products have almond as the main flavoring component. Lots of ice creams will use almonds in place of most of the pistachios and call it "pistachio almond" however it's made I love it!

I've been up the last hour and a half (it is 6:20 am here) coughing my lungs out again, sipping on some peppermint tea with a touch of honey.

Yesterday my blood sugar was all over the map so between the two, I will be laying low today.

The good side of it is I can curl up with TB and the fur babies and watch some movies!

(Edit: I just re-read that - "TB and the fur babies" sounds like some weird punk band! )
