We can live in our house until we close on it, the lease for the people who are living there is over at the end of this month.

It has a deck, a garage, mature yard with a couple little trees. It's two bedroom and a HUGE! kitchen. Enough counter and cupboard space for making a Thanksgiving feast and be able to turn around. I'll be able toput everything away in the kitchen. Will take pics once we move in.
Good luck, keep smilin'!

I went shopping and I bought a small amount of Swiss Cheese. Lately it has had no real flavor. So I made a sandwich. Now I am wishing I bought a full pound. The flavor was like I was in Switzerland itself. What a surprise. Now I am exhausted and ready for a nap. Nighty, night!

Me too! It was called Lotus 123. Remember Lotus? I was a Lotus expert. I'm really showing my age. LOL

Addie, it could be that your taste was off and now it returned. I bought some deli turkey breast that was not Honeysuckle and had to feed it to the dog. He liked it, but I learned my lesson.

I started out on a spreadsheet program I don't remember the name of then moved on to Lotus 1-2-3 and then Excel. For a guy who's as weird about numbers as I am, spreadsheets are a great toy to play with.

Oh how my taste buds have changed over the years. This morning I made a scrambled egg. I bought a package of end cuts of cold cuts. I buy it for Teddy. but there was a large end piece of baloney that had not seen the slicer. So I cut of a hunk and fried it. What ever made me think it was great when I was a kid?

I liked playing with spreadsheets too, Andy. I like to create macros and then sit there and watch the screen bouncing around, going through the macro. Lotus was my first spreadsheet.

Addie, we still like fried bologna. I put a slice of bologna in the pan and put a slice of tomato on top of it. As it fries, the edges curl up around the tomato.

Maybe my slice was just too thick. I ate all of the egg, but left some of the baloney. I like your recipe though. I love fresh tomato with anything. I could live on tomato and cucumber sandwiches on whole wheat.
