We just got home from vacation today. We made it through disney & all the theme parks & universal studios too. It was great fun. My knees held up pretty good. It is great to be home. Got a call when we were gone the freezer at work crashed & we lost about $500. worth of inventory.

I doubt I will be able to see it tonight (this is a multi-night event, isn't it?). It's raining and when it's clear I can see a dozen stars.

Great to see you back SB, I have missed you

Sounds like you had a wonderful time away..Disneyland sounds great as does US

Not so good about the freezer though

Hi taxlady. Yes, it's supposed to be a couple of nights. It's starting to get cloudy here tonight, darn it - we're hoping for rain but still would like it to be clear just for this one night Can't have everything, I guess! lol

Simonbaker, oh my gosh, so sorry to hear of your frozen foods loss!

I really should, Fiona. Sounds like something I should get my brother to help me search out.

Be a nice little hobby for you on nice nights. I enjoy it, relaxing and aside from being able to aim the scope it's a hobby that asks nothing of you. Any further inquiry is from your mind, not something that has to be chased or mastered.

I made 16 dozen meatballs tonight and 2 kg of cooked ground beef. It is all for the youth conference. I still have to make another 16 dozen or so to make for sweet and sour. My neighbour is helping me so it goes much faster. The first batch are for stroganoff - they will be served the same night with egg noodles and rice.

My back/side was through the roof with pain the last two days and the only position that I can maintain for any time is walking so I was doing a lot of moving while we were doing the meatballs. Just hope this is gone by Monday, though I don't sit down much during the week anyway - except when my crew makes me! They are pretty strict that way. I even have a special chair with my obus form on it!

Maybe you should bring your crew home with you. At least you listen to them.

Watching the meteor shower...not much happening, yet. I was falling asleep so I came inside for a while. Shrek is still out there, I'm going to take a nap and set the alarm for 2:30 am.
