Well, after she recovered from the surgery, she could not stop talking, driving the man to distraction. He finally had the doctor reverse the procedure and silence reigned.
Should I find out what the second procedure was?
Yes, I had noticed..and I wouldn't change a thing about KL! We are so happy to have her back.

You darn near made me misty Beth. What a sweet thing to say.
I know you remember meeting Souschef, and one reason we're so good together is his crazy humor, and mine too for that matter.

And the fruit had seeds in it. But the oranges were the best tasting oranges I've ever eaten, super sweet, and so juicy, eating one cod from ice box was like drinking the best orange juice.

What's a crime is that the tree was let go until it died. The family who lived with MIL said they didn't care for, and couldn't eat oranges. The grand-kids said the same thing. I think they were just to lazy to take care of the tree.=m or garden. But, that's y opinion. But I gotta say it, those oranges were spectacular., and I miss them, along with my in-laws. They were as sweet as those oranges.

Those oranges are called "Valencia" Chief. They are only for juice here, and you're right that they are sweet and very delicious. Many of our neighbors have them along with the Navel eating orange and both are free just for the asking. We often trade our highly prized Meyer Lemons for both. Actually we will give away our M. Lemons on our full little tree "just because" and without a trade.
You may know that the Heritage Valley here is called "The Citrus Capital of the World." It's a joy to live here, just a pretty 15 mile drive west and you'll be in Ventura, by the Pacific, where I grew up as a California "Gidget". There's nowhere I'd rather live than here because I guess I've bloomed where I was planted. At this advanced age, that's a very good thing.

Two weeks ago the weather was chilly. Today we are having a heat wave. We actually broke records for heat in Montreal. For the weekend, we have frost warnings. The weather is broken. Climate change is real. It's not quite what I was expecting from the climate emergency.

Stray thought I had about lipstick. I haven't had lipstick on since March. I've hardly been out of the house since then, but you sure can't wear lipstick with a mask on.

I wonder if lipstick manufactures have felt the pinch of mask wearers? Actually I haven't had any makeup on at all since this all started. I just may doll myself up for my SC today.

Lol, I put it on by habit when I went to the doctor in late March. When I saw the lipstick stain on the inside of my mask later, I laughed at myself and haven't worn it since

It would be fun to see if the husbands even notice.

I think I'm going to stop using the expression "I was lazy today". Instead I think I'll say "I've decided to channel my energies into leisurely pursuits".

Sounds better, no?

Absolutely! Now all I have to do is remember it...
