I hope she has a good night and I'm praying that the medicine will work.
Thank you so much for asking!
Yes, it is. They are so loving & sweet. She sounds like such a trooper, though. And lucky to have such a caring Mom. Extra hugs & prayers for her tonight. Please keep us posted.

She is in my thoughts.

(plus had a ring of prejudice to it since this lady is of Mexican decent) Well she did they said, just because we complained about having to pay for a cart! (you put in a coin and get it back when you return the cart, this is to insure the carts stay on the property) I told them again she would never do that but they were instant. So I offered to get the manager but they did not want to talk to her. They left saying again they would never come back here to shop. Of course they live an hour away so chances are they would never come here again anyway.
Talked to cashier that was accused of this vile act and her jaw hit the ground. Turns out this couple was complaining since the moment they walked through the door. No one was sad to hear they would not return.
Nice job standing up for your fellow employee.

You're in for a treat, here is the link to the recipe. http://mymerrychristmas.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=27224

The meat just falls of the bone, it is the only way I will cook a whole chicken now. I want to try a turkey breast that way sometime.

I don't know why I do this to myself, I am up way too late again. Game 4 is tomorrow night (tonight), and there always a chance that it could go long into the night with overtime.

Good night everyone!!!!
