Yes that sounds great. I am all about the eating!!!! Anyone that knows me will tell you I live for food and going out to eat. I will send you a PM closer to the time I move,and thanks for the info this will be my 5th or 6th move but the first for my wife besides when she moved out at 18 for college. I have never lived in the Mt region of the west I could possibly look to retire here.

I've been known to sneak a few Christmas songs in on my iPod, too! One of my all time favorite songs is "All I Want for Christmas is You" (the Vince Vance and the Valiants song). Usually, by July, I can't go any longer without hearing it so I throw it in my rotation. After that, more and more Christmas songs start making their way in. Can't wait!!!

Well its kind of a warm muggy day today. Our A/C is not working well and the repair guy is here to fix it,and we don't have any windows that will open so yeah it's kind of a bad day to work. I was just looking at the calendar and it looks like we well under 200 days for the beginning of Halloween/Fall decorating season which for me always starts oct 1st. So time is moving fast. I did not eat lunch today with everyone else here because I was still stuffed from breakfast of waffles and sausage. I think we are having pizza rolls for dinner. I fixed those a month ago and they are sooo easy and so good. Well I better be going before I get in trouble.Have a good day everyone!

Good morning, friends!!

Rainy day here, storms coming this afternoon.

I have a few appointments today, and I plan to stop in at our Hallmark Gold Crown store & pick up the Dream Book.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!

Be safe!

Btw, is anyone watching Off Pitch on VH1?

It just premiered last night. It's based on the Grand River Singers from my hometown of La Crosse. Going to be interesting & filled with drama, drama, drama!! But it's neat to see La Crosse & all of my old stomping grounds!!!

Good Morning!

Ran the air conditioner last night, it has been very warm the past few days, almost 90 degrees. Woke up to very chilly weather, 48 degrees and rainy right now. It will be cool the rest of the week. Yay!

My granddaughter is with my mom right now but will be here in a few minutes. Thanks to those who have been asking about her, she is feeling so much better!

Have a Merry Day my Christmas Friends!!!
