I hope you feel better very soon, LP.

***********
This is a crazy month so far and it's just begun. Birthday and anniversary celebrations, and since the grands are all out of school now, we're all trying to get together for visits. I always end up being the coordinator and I don't mind at all, it's just difficult to arrange times when my sons-in-law are both off work at the same times. It's hard for them to take time off work when they're scheduled, because one is a cop and the other is a firefighter, so they have to find someone else to cover.

Plus, the firefighter works 2-3 day shifts in a row and has to stay at the station, and the cop is on the 6PM to 6AM shift now so he has to sleep during the day. Oy.

Admirable professions for both of your "sons", Cheryl. Kudos to you for doing the family planning it has to be an ever changing challenge. Steve would tell you to use a spread sheet. He has one for everything!

Cheryl, good luck with that scheduling. It sounds tricky.

Thanks ladies - it is a challenge, to be sure. I've got a couple of days now where I can't do much, my oldest daughter is in Texas for a friend's wedding.

Kay, I wouldn't know the first thing about making a spreadsheet. BTW, one my SIL's is a Steve, too.

Steve and I think alike. I use spreadsheets for everything. I was using spreadsheets before there was Excel.

What are you doing?

I wouldn't have a clue about making a spreadsheet. It would all be in cursive longhand, which would then be indecipherable, as my handwriting is horrid. Guess I should have been a doctor!

Steve was doing the same Andy. I wouldn't have a clue how to do one, and now I'm too lazy to care because he's so good at it.

What is a normal non-sale per pound price for a tri-tip?

If I recall correctly, Steve is an engineer and you're an accountant. That explains that

Me too. I met my first spreadsheet when I got an Atari ST in 1985. People asked what games I played on it and I answered that I played spreadsheet.

I thought it was the nfitiest thing.
