I doubt she is that computer savvy. She sounded very confused when I tried to explain that to her. So I dropped the subject. Other than that problem, she is still in recovery mode.

It sure was, Kayelle. I mentioned I also saw a Corvette and really loved it. Let's see what happens.

I just finished cleaning the kitchen. Good grief! How do the front of the bottom cabinets get so dirty. I just cleaned them a few days ago.

In the meantime I am waiting for Pirate to go shopping for my meats. Can't get too many. Not much room in the freezer. Just a couple of steaks and the Loin Pork Roast, bones in.

I'm waiting. Waiting for Himself to finish grooming in the only bathroom so I can put my contact lenses in ~ he takes longer than I do. Waiting for Loverly and Goober to get to her place. Once we're all together and all put together, we'll be heading out for what is probably our last day all together for this trip in. West Side Market first, then a short jaunt over to Great Lakes Brewing Company to eat someone else's food! Leave for MA tomorrow if we get our stuff together early - early being a challenge. Loverly has to be at work by 7 AM so it's early curfew tonight. Otherwise, we'll pack everything tomorrow and leave early on Tuesday and probably drive straight through.

That's really strange, since supposedly her husband built an internet server for "Cat". It's beyond simple to follow the instructions on how to set the password that come with a wireless router. And if you read any of her story about the cats, it includes some pretty savvy computer skills.

I have an idea CCL knows her way around computers quite well, Addie. Was she still in recovery mode during that recent 3-week road trip and miles and miles of hiking the Appalachian trail? Just curious, since you just spoke with her.

Enjoy your (probably) last day with the kids, CG. Sounds like a fun filled day!

Lazy morning here. Having a cup of coffee before I annoy my neighbors all day. You know my favorites ones? Memba them?

Got the smoker ready. Were all ready for some real ribs for a change.
I'll be taking my sweet time doing it to.

I don't know. It was a very short call as I was checking to see make sure if she is all right. I just told her that we all missed her and asked about Cat and Carl and their baby. She assured me that she is working part time, but tires easily. Cat and her family will be returning in late August or early Sept. Then I had to hang up.

I am smiling from ear-to-ear. It's been a great visit with the kids, we hit a few favorite places, found a couple of new favorite places, and had wonderful weather to boot in spite of a very few hot-hot days. Alas, all things must come to an end, and we're now on an expected departure day of Tuesday. By the time we hit the market and had dinner out, it was too late to make much noise and start to pack the car. Our dear, sleepy Loverly needed to get to sleep early since she reports to work by 7:00 AM, wake-up time around 5:30 or so. *shudder* We'll enjoy one last departure dinner on Monday, but all around Loverly's kitchen table, cleaning up a few leftovers and eating a few freshly prepared items.

The best part of the trip? Himself kept saying "this is nice" and "I like this place" and other things that makes me think he just might be ready to do what we need to do to get back home. My fingers are seriously crossed on this one!

I sure hope those (non)favorite neighbors of yours were downwind.
