Meanwhile, I've been groovin' on old episodes of "Hart to Hart" every day on COSI TV. They run an episode right after "The Chew" every weekday, so I have a two hour block to putter in the kitchen while I watch. Sadly, most of my puttering consists of goofing off on the computer and not prepping ingredients for dinner. *sigh*

Now you know why it was such a big hit when it was shown here. If you notice at the very beginning when the moose is walking past the sign on the building, someone goofed and you can see right through the animal. They never corrected it and I think the public was happy with it just the way it was.

My favorite character was the lady who ran the store. Totally unflappable. So easy going.

I love YouTube. I cam across a series showing how England prepared for WWII and how the railroad was affected. I was glued to the screen on that one.

I have been going back and forth with my dad and brother on the phone. That is how I spent most of my days lately. Mom has been in hospital since Jan 6. Waiting for the dr to call with Mom's Cat scan results.

So sorry to hear this. I hope everything turns out all right.

I'm just going to eat and then relax on the computer with a jigsaw puzzle. I did the monthly grocery shopping today. Six stores later I was finally home. I covered 30 miles and was gone 4 1/2 hours. I think I'm getting too old for this.

I always have a real jigsaw puzzle going on. Sometimes it takes me several months to finish one.

When we exchanged gifts with Himself's sis and BIL the first few years after they moved up to MA, we would get her a many-pieces puzzle for Christmas. Difficult ones, too, since she loves them. Once Himself got laid off, though, we put a stop to exchanging gifts. Turns out it's easier not having to rack your brain trying to think of something clever as a gift when most of your energy is spent getting things done and ready so you can get out of town to spend Christmas with your kids. She and her hubby head back to FL every year, just like we go to OH.
