Okay, HMG, the Lear is fueled and I will pick up anyone who wants to help you eat those cookies. Chocolate and orange together are my most favorite of flavors!

Thanks, MC. You are right: There really seems to be a lot of things popping at once around here. Thank heaven we have each other to share it with.

And CAH and CAH's mom, you're certainly in my thoughts today as well.

xmas365, what a tasteless joke that guy made, and when you were doing something nice, too! Even though he didn't mean offense, he should have thought about what he was saying.

snowflake22, if you can't find out what kind of bug that is, just call it a "snallygaster." Where I grew up, that was the word for any UFB (unidentified flying bug).

Ryan, enjoy being school-assignment-free!

Right you are. When we were in Gastonia a few years back, my complexion was in marvelous condition because of the humidity. My hair, on the other hand, was so frizzy! On our way back home to CA, my skin started getting drier and drier. The thing with humidity is that you just cannot seem to dry off after a shower. You also have to contend with mold and mildew. I have never had any mold or mildew on my clothes since I have been in CA (over 40 years), but in the South, you had to be careful with laundry. But out here, we don't really have four seasons. That is what I miss most of all. Thinking of your mom.

Thanks, MGRamsey. We have so much homelessness here in California, even in our little town. Ever since seeing a movie about a well-educated woman who became homeless, I have just carried that fear around. It is time to shed that burden.

I hope that cough goes away very, very soon!

She turned 90 in February, so she did have a good & long life - just wish she could live for ever. My uncle (her hubby) is 92 & going strong, so hopefully he can stay strong through all of this. He will miss her like crazy!
I'm so sorry for your loss.
