Good morning! Happy Friday Eve!

Another HOT ol day in Ohio! One more after today & then it's supposed to cool off a little!! I'm looking forward to my brother/sil coming home from Cape Cod this weekend & our family camp out!!! I have a lot of food to make between now & Saturday!! I made cookies last night...it was too hot to go outside anyway!! Hopefully tonight I can get a lot done - stuffed jalapeno's, buffalo chicken macaroni & cheese, cinnamon roll cake for sure...and I need to figure out what kind of meat to bring for the grill/fire! Oh FUN!!!

Make it a great day!!!

I was cracking up so much, especially with the conversations between Binger and Jayish..all I can say is thank you to the following for providing sooooo much entertainment from yesterdays event; Made582, Xmas365, Christmasstar, Shellie12, Meceka, Holiday, Sugar142286, XmasDreams, Xmastidings, Christmas-A-Holic, Snowflake22, Trackrebel, Ryan and to anyone else that I did not list nor I could not keep track of....You are all are pretty wonderful bunch and that was some Christmassy cool entertainment here, for the middle of July!!!!

My goodness, the Lord only knows what will be awaiting for us once QVC kicks off their CIJ and Binger recoups from all of yesterdays excitement....

What you should be asking is, Who was keeping an eye on the administrators yesterday? LOL!!!!

Let's hope none of the QVC hosts start handling Santa a little to much like the HSN one's did.

Good Thursday morning, my Christmas friends!

Wow, what was it, 50 pages since yesterday?? I gave up trying to read all that! I have a feeling QVC and HSN will start doing longer CIJ shows after yesterday!

I finally got the grass cut. I know the neighbors were relieved. Who woulda thought the mayor would have the worst yard in town? But I couldn't do any string trimming, as I was out of string...thank goodness!

I hope y'all have a great day!

Good Morning MMC!!!!! It's going to be miserable here today with a high of 95 and a feel like temp of 105 to 110. Needless to say, I'm not going outside unless I have too. Most of my day is going to be spent getting stuff in order around the apartment and making up some food for this weekend so I don't have to worry about cooking to much while QVC is on. I also need to make out my grocery list like HMG. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!

Haha...yes...I was worried some folks were "working a little too blue" for MMC in the humor department! Plus, our Beloved Countmeister Crown was scared away! I tried keeping up with all the posts but finally gave up and need to go back and read some from yesterday evening. All in all, it was good, clean (mostly) fun!

And it sounds like Made found a new lady friend over at the HSN!
