Poor Carl, he's not impressed by anything. Some of the places that he's been sent and he doesn't "get" what the big deal is.

I've watched most of the series so far

I watched one episode and laughed so much that I made a point of watching another. That's when I realized that Carl was just a whiner. It just wasn't funny any more.

Just a silly little thing, but I found my favorite Bear Claw ice cream flavor while grocery shopping. It's the store's house brand, but from the spoonful I tried as my appetizer I must admit it's yummy. Dangerously yummy. I'll have to be a good girl and empty off the recumbent bike in the basement and get to work.

I love the recumbent bike, makes it so much easier to eat the ice cream...

Well, you could ask for my Dan, but you can't have him!

Typing that made me smile

Gave a friend a jar of pickled green beans to take home, she'd never heard of them, and a glass of watermelon limeade, she loved it, also had never heard of it.

She was really excited!

It is always fun to give people new things to try...

Watching the relief on a family's faces watching a line of trucks with horse trailers show up to help them evacuate their cows and horses. We even had chicken crates and crates for their daughter's bunnies.

I made 4 trips total, luckily the fairgrounds are about a block away from me. I'm definitely out of shape for pushing cows into trailers.
