ALOHA--- GREAT DOG NAME FROM IHEART-- SHE IS PUTTING TOGETHER A LIST OF HAWAIAN WORDS THAT MIGHT DO FOR THE NEXT LITTER.
SHE AND CHAARLOTTE SENT US A COMPLETE HAM DINNER-- WHICH ARRIVED FROZEN- AND WE QUICKLY PUT IT IN THE WAALKIN FREEZER...SO TECHNICALLY THO I SAW IT ARRIVE, I HAVE NOT LOOKED IT OVER.
MY LAMB KABOB PROJECT GOT HELD OVER TIL 4:30- THIS MORNING... I RAN OUT OF GAS BEFORE MAIL CALL LAST NIGHT AND JUST DID NOT HAVE THE UMPH TO TACKLE IT THEN
I NOW HAVE 2 MEDIUM SIZE BAKED BEAN CANS IN THE OVEN... IN WATER
THIS RECIPIE MOST CLOSELY APROXIMATES WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THAT OVEN...
I WAS NOT PREPARED FOR THE HUGE VOLUME OF INFORMATION ABOUT DONOR KABABS. IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE IN EUROPE, THEY ARE A COMBINATION OF THE MCD's HAMBURGER AND NY CITY BAGEL SOLD ON STREET CORNERS.
BUT NOW THAT I AM AWARE..... I REMEMBER......
IT WAS A BIG DEAL AROUND SOME HOLLYWOOD EPISODE- THAT I GOT INVITED TO. IT WAS IN THE COURTYARD OF ONE OF BOSTON'S BEST HOTELS- IF I WAS GOOD AT NAME DROPPING I COULD TELL YOU THE HOTEL AND WHO WAS THERE- BUT THOSE THINGSS HAVE SLIPPED MY MIND. I DO REMEMBER 2 THINGS VERY WELL-- THEY HAD SOME LOUDSPEAKERS- THE LIKES OF WHICH I HAD NEVER HEARD BEFORE-- THEY WERE SO LOUD THAT YOU COULD FEEL THE MUSIC POUNDING AT YOU-- YET YOU COULD HOLD A CONVERSATION AND HEAR THAT VERY WELL. THE OTHER THING I REMEMBER VAGUELY RESEMBLED WHAT IS IN MY OVEN -- EXCEPT THEIRS WAS 3 FOOT TALL WITH A SIZEABLE BLOW TORCH ARRAINGEMENT-- A GUY IN THE WHITE HAT CUT SLIVERS FOR YOU-- AND IT WAS SOME KIND OF GOOOOOOOD.-- NOW WANDERING AROUND THE INTERNET I SEE CHEF'S SLICING 3' TOWERS OF WHATEVER IT IS I NOW HAVE IN 2 BEAN CANS IN MY OVEN.... AT LEAST IN CONCEPT.
GOLDIE -- YESTERDAY--- I GLANCED AT THE CLOCK AND FIGURED I HAD TIME TO LIE DOWN FOR A FEW MINUTES BEFORE MAIL CALL-- FLIPPED ON CNN JUST IN TIME TO HEAR DR GUPTA LECTURING ON CREATIVITY-- AND HE SAID "YOU SHOULD GET UP EVERY MORNING AND DO SOMETHING THAT TERRIFIES YOU "---I DO, ----I GET OUT OF BED, AND TURN ON THIS COMPUTER, AND THEN MY CELL-- THAT IS 3 THINGS RIGHT THERE. AND THEN I GET IN MY CAR. MAKING THE 4TH HOLY TERROR.
HOW BAD IS IT ?? "MOM, YOUR DIRECTIONAL IS STILL ON" SO I TURN ON MY WINDSHIELD WIPER-- NOW... I HAVE MY OLD BINARY PROBLEM-- CHOICE OF 2 THINGS- 2 LEVERS.... AND UP OR DOWN? BEFORE ALL IS WELL, I HAVE WASHED AND WIPED TEH REAR WINDOW.
Hello from Germany,
this is DiDis mom, Karen. I have been informed by the military flight people that we have the lowest status, being flying military retirees. Active duty
people are before us in line to fly, so we may not get a flight back until December 28th. Seems to be a lot of military families on vacation either in the states from Germany or from the US to Europe. I'm really sorry for the inconvenience and bad timeing ini this. I will keep you posted.
As a matter of information, everyone told me that Europeans are y dog friendly and dogs are everywhere. I have seen very few dogs being walked in towns throughout Germany, Holland, Belgium, France or Luxemberg. Trying to ask questions as we go regarding the acceptance of service dogs in establishments...we'll see. Sure miss DD, its just not the same trying to walk without her...my balance is worse and my current helper is fun but not always a agreeable as she is. ha ha.
Thanks again for everything, Karen
