Cheryl, my thoughts and sympathies go out to all of your fellow Californians. I can't even wrap my head around the devastation and trauma of going through that kind of event. You and your area are such wonderful neighbors, helping out like you are. Bless the firefolk that are working their darnedest to get those blazes under control.

Thanks Cheryl, it's important for us to do all we can during Fire Season. We had a tornado touch down south of town tonight, lots of downed branches and some power lines but no people, animal or structure damages.

Thank you, ladies. Ugh - the fire is now up to 37,000 acres and 0% containment. Princess, glad to hear no one was hurt in the tornado!

I watched Tyler this afternoon so my daughter and SIL could have a movie date, and just got home a little bit ago. Wow, is that boy ever an active one. His last baseball game of the season is tomorrow morning at 8, so will be going to that. Pretty much been doing little things around the house, fixin' to get some comfies on, find a movie, and have a bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream.

Waiting for the guy who turns on his call light to just see how long it takes me to get there to go to sleep so I can turn off his call light. Once he's asleep he doesn't ring for the rest of the night. If I answer while he is still awake...in ten minutes he'll turn it on again.

He just wants to make sure you get plenty of exercise while you're on shift.


I am trying to decide if I'm happy or annoyed with a friend of our kids. Every time we're back home in Ohio we listen to her sing the praises of Blue Bunny ice cream. I'm not against a carton of store-bought ice cream in our freezer. In fact, I'm very glad that a local store has been "importing" Graeter's ice cream from Ohio. However, I noticed that they are now carrying Blue Bunny. Well, we needed some vanilla for the berry crisp I had made, so I decided to grab a tub to try. We were impressed! Nowhere near as rich as Graeter's, but not much more than half the calories either. And it's one of those ice creams that "clean" eaters would be happy with: Nothing but stuff you'd have in your fridge and pantry. Still can't decide if I'm happy or annoyed...

Gee Princess, I can so identify. I worked in a nursing home when my husband had been hurt on his job. I worked the 11-77 shift. I had one patient that would ring on every hour just to ask if it was time to get up. Then during the day shifts, he would ring if he was still in his bed to ask if it was snack time, is it lunch time, etc. They finally shut his bell off and turned it back on at night. All I could do was smile and tell him No every hour.

I'm bought a 12 pack of Blue Bunny ice cream bars on a stick recently, first time. Never heard of them before. I like how they're smaller sized. I have 2 of them for dessert, sometimes 3. Was it Blue Bunny ice cream that was in the news months ago, not sure.

I'll have to look for Blue Bunny ice cream tomorrow when I go grocery shopping. Not sure if I've seen it in our (2) supermarkets here in town.

Noticing that your from California, I got them at either Vons or Ralphs, or Albertsons. I forget which. I have all 3 stores here.
Sometimes there are items I go to one store for...that the other doesn't have and vice versa.

I like how these ice cream bars on a stick are small slender sized.
