I have the Weber going with some charcoal and hickory chunks. An 8 pound pork butt, well rubbed with my favorite rub is smoking away. After a couple of hours I'll move it to the oven to finish over night. That will be tomorrow's dinner with cole slaw and potato salad.

Thank you everyone :)

Were, well let's say he's doing much better today. He slept well last night.

He will never ever have to be put through that stress test or the treadmill for the rest of his life. It was that test that I mentioned here a few weeks ago that had me concerned. Now we know my instincts are pretty damn good.

Strange how we both had the feeling that after reading the fine print that he would be one the rare few that has an allergic reaction to the meds they shot him up with.

Now I need to try an unstress myself and get those flowers planted.
I'm wound up like a rubber band. Ready to sling across the room.

Talk about a Swingin' Munky!

Whoa Andy!!!

What time is dinner tomorrow. I'm starving and really tired of fast food.
That sounds sooo good.

Wow, Munky, I bet your DH wasn't the only one in that room with heart palpitations! I'm glad to hear he felt better today. Must be a testament to the wonderful nurse he has at home. You take good care of both of you.

I am very glad everything turned out all right. Very scary.

I'm trying to wake up and get out side for planting. Have many things to get into the ground.

I wish I had read this yesterday. It's a pretty long drive from PA to MA. (Is that the correct abbreviation?)

Munky, I'm sorry to hear what DH had to go through, and I hope he's recovering nicely. I have had that test many times due to my heart issues, and now with my bad knee I cannot do the treadmill and I do the one where they inject me with the drug that makes me feel like I'm running a marathon, while just lying there.

Exclamation

My quiet, relaxing Sunday was suddenly turned into absolute chaos!

I was doing some gardening so didn't notice what had occurred in the flat above....the boiler had broken down/burst...and I came back into my flat to see water dripping quite profusely into my front room and kitchen from the ceiling above!

It was quite dangerous in the kitchen since it was dripping down from the light socket! Needless to say I turned the electrics off at the mains. Luckily the water in the front room was not over the TV or computer, but still not great since it saturated a small antiques 3 tiered table that was french polished.

My riding concern was that I might have to wait until the electrics dried at the light socket before the electrics could be switched back on, i.e. how long would I have to be without TV and computer access? Thankfully not long since the workers dried out the disengaged light socket (by turning back on the mains and using my hair dryer on it). Massive clean up operation now - well, that's my workout sorted for today then!

The owner of the above flat said she is insured and she had her workmen hoover up the water e.g. in the kitchen and on the saturated carpets in frontroom. She already had 2 emergencies earlier in the week, e.g. calling out AA whilst she was childminding and calling the police over a suspicious character breaking into a car. So I felt sorry for her but couldn't contain my distress that much either over the extent of this calamity impacting on my flat.

Gee Munky, I am so happy that DH is all right. After three heart attacks, they now give me the stress test sitting down in a nice comfortable chair. I found out later that the room that the test is done in, the walls are specially treated because the medicine is Nuclear. Interesting.

Oh dear Creative. I once lived in a building and the woman upstairs was filling her tub. She fell asleep and before you knew it, my bathroom was getting her overflow through the ceiling. Not a fun mess to clean up. I would rather take a shower. The water goes down the drain as you are getting clean.
