Just rolled out of bed for the second time today.
Was up early ready to do the usual things.My back told me not a chance, get back to bed.Took a Tylenol and went back to sleep.

I was so tense and stressed out last night.We never made it to the wharf.Got close but didn't have time to.Really wasn't in the mood to anyways.To avoid a major head on collision my husband jerked the wheel hard, slammed on the brakes to avoid it.I didn't see it coming sitting in the back seat.Thankfully I was wearing a seat belt.My body jerked forward my shoulder slammed into the front seat my back got wrenched pretty good.
Whiplash?

It was just a fun day all around.Stopped on the way home to get something to eat.Since when do restaurants ask you to leave tips for the cook? What is that a new policy?They didn't even get the order right.I didn't eat it either.Mizzz Crabby here

I came home and went straight to bed.
Going to take it easy today.I do envy you veggie marathon runners.

What are you doing?

May I join you, K-girl? Our subdivision pool is not looking so good. Hopefully we can get it back next week, it's supposed to be in the high 80's.

Come on in Dawg, the water's great, well at least today it is...
yesterday we went up to the pool and there was nobody there
then I saw the water, um, you couldn't see the bottom it was so murky it looked really scary...
so I went and found 'the man' to inquire as to the condition of the pool and should it be closed?
Nope, he said, it's fine but somehow the filter got shut off,
it'll be okay in a coupla hours... we left!

If they want me to leave a tip for the chef, the chef should come out to the table and ask how the food was. I'll give an honest answer. I thought the servers were suppose to divide the tips and give part to the chefs.

The servers didn't make the food, they brought it to the table. This is why I like going to Japanese restaurants where the food is made at the table. I give the person preparing the food a tip. The server also gets a gratuity, but I make sure the person making the food gets the generous reward for the delicious food.

Tips for the cook? Never heard of that. They don't get paid below minimum wage so there's no reason to tip them, imo.

We've given gratuity to chefs. They are the main reason we go to a particular place, for the food. We also handsomely give to the server(at least 25%) if they are good, which they most always are . Good service IMO should be rewarded. I also give tips to gas station attendants who pump my gas. Yes, they still do that here AND will wash your windshield. No self serve gas stations at all, illegal to pump your own. We're spoiled ,

ND also has the Northern Lights, and probably the best sunsets ever, other than Iowa and IL!
As they head north through New England, the leaves will be just starting to change. NE has two mountain ranges. The Green Mountains in Vermont and the White Mountains that extend into Maine. Vermont and Maine are the most rural once you get away from the coast. Vermont has the smallest capital city of all 50 states. Even though it is a college town, the definitive word there is "town".

I am burning the midnight oil trying to work on a cake for my Mother-in-law's Birthday party. The design is getting simpler by the minute! LOL
