They have sample jars of the herbs and spices you can smell before buying.

I just have to pay for gas instead of shipping charges.
And you get to see some pretty scenery on your way there. Arlington is a pretty town. Not up there with Wellsley or Newton, but upscale nonetheless.

No Penzeys, just bagels. Got a text a former neighbor is dropping by with her beautiful one year old daughter. That may interrupt bagels but that's OK. That little girl is adorable.

I love them at that age. They are just beginning to realize how wonderful their world is. Everything is a wonder to them. They have an unending store of hugs and wet kisses.

My girlfriend's ex-husband is here in Boston from Atlanta for his radiation treatment at the Mass. Gen Hosp. So I have Apple Pie #1 in the oven for him. I have to put pie #2 together for my daughter.

We talked today. She is going to be on the chemo for one year. It will be with the pills and some nausea medication.She is only up to stage three. At first they thought it was an advanced stage four. The type she has is genetic. She has had the tumor for a very long time. A slow grower.

Stage II evacuation in our neighboring county, the fires down there have spread because of high winds.There is so much smoke it's like twilight outside. I am on-call for the Red Cross evac team for Lolo, but so far the fires are further down the valley.

That sounds awful, PF. Hope everyone stays safe.

I'm getting ready to watch the finales of Hell's Kitchen and Master Chef.
