It's a beautiful Saturday morning here, still quite cool, but calm & sunny.

I'm having my morning coffee, and watching ID. I'm so addicted to this channel.

What are your plans for the day?

I am going to meet my sister Shannon, and niece Alyssa, in Arcadia, Wisconsin for lunch. That's approximately halfway between Eau Claire & LaCrosse. Only an hour's drive.

Arcadia is known for being the headquarters of Ashley Furniture. I love that place! When we were ready to buy a kitchen table, about 8 years ago in Vegas, we went to the Ashley Furniture Homestore there. We still have it & love it! Our friends were trying to talk us into selling it to them before we moved.

So, does anybody need any new furniture? I think that we'll eat @ Ashley's pub. I didn't even know they had one. But, My sister has a co-worker who says that their restaurant had the best food in town. Kind of funny. This is small town USA, afterall.

Made, are you still good with your recliners?!

Anyways, I hope you all have a fabulous day!!
Have fun with your sister and niece, snowflake! I have to work a few hours today and if I get back in time, I will listen to the Greasy Skillet and work on a crochet project.

This conversation is followed by an hour of shooting, explosions, crashes, and fights. Then there is a 15 minutes conversation where everyone laughs or someone is captured and interrogated, followed by another hour of shooting, explosions, crashes, and fights. It all concludes with a big kiss at the end (or a handshake).

If this is your kind of movie, it is awesome! I really enjoyed it....and so did Wifey. The only difference in my favorite movie and her favorite movie is that is has to have a good looking leading man like me (or Gerard Butler, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Daniel Craig, etc).
Gerard Butler is in this movie? It has to be good then!

Instead of going to Louisville or Detroit, I convinced all of you to just fly here to Indianapolis. That way we were in between Santa Claus, Indiana and Bronners. Then Instead of renting hotel rooms, all of you stayed here at my apartment building since all of my neighbors have spare bedrooms and air mattresses. It was like a giant sleep over that involved setting up a TV in the yard for Christmas movies and Caroling in the middle of summer. Then we went out and rented a couple of passenger vans and made an overnight trip to Santa Claus, IN. Then we came back here for a few days show I could show you around town. Then we made another overnight trip up to Bronner's and camped out in tents in Meceka's front yard. It was a blast and a little weird. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
I like this dream! I would put it right up there with the one I had the other night in which Gerard Butler was my singing banker.

I love this dream !!! I really wish we could all meet !!! xo I would be a little big of a hindrance though, because I would need to ride with someone here and there since driving is one of the things that scares me xo
