We must do our chefly duties for a tasty meal for our families.

Sounds good, Andy. Nice to have the main dish for tomorrow's meal pretty much done, and just have sides to make.

Tomorrow, my great granddaughter is coming to visit me. I haven't seen her since she was about five. She will be off to college in just a few days. I raised her mother after my daughter died. It seems her family has fallen apart completely at the seams. She called me, her aunt called me along with her father. What a mess. The only thing I could get from all of the mess is that they all needed someone to just talk to. There is certainly not very much I can do.

But I will be glad to see Little Abbie. I see her on Facebook and she is so pretty. She wants to study ALS and become an interpreter. (ALS = American Sign Language) She is not hard of hearing at all. So I am both pleased and surprised at her choice of study.

Yes, but... It involved my sitting out in the humidity and rain showers for 3+ hours baby sitting the Weber.

Sounds like your sacrifice was worth it!

Less than a six pack.

Wow, Addie.....odd that after all these years of not seeing your great granddaughter that all of a sudden you get all these phone calls for help. Where does Abbie live, does she live far from you? I'm glad you're getting to see her after all these years. I wouldn't be able to handle not seeing my grands for that long. Hope you have a nice visit with her and lots of hugs. That's great that she's headed for college.

(By the way, just so you know before you see Abbie....ASL= American Sign Language. ALS is a degenerative neurological disease....just sayin' )

Those miniature goats are small enough to be house goats. That video was adorable Kayelle.

But, goats have creepy eyes.
