Joe sorry you have to return to work but at least you are halfway to another day off. Thanks for the laughs and may work fly!

Ana hope that all is going well in the corner. How is the toe this morning?? If it is half as cold there as here the sore toe won't matter cause it would be too cold to run the dogs. lol

Oh Bets we are having a heat wave. It was only -17 this morning. But they are talking snow for tomorrow so it must be going to warm up! duh

Darlene may work go smoothly today!

Cailyn stay warm!!

Gerry snow there too??? Have a nice day!

Haroula hope work flies and goes well.

Gail glad that all is fine for now and pray that it continues that way. My friend says that he can't sleep the night of his treatment. Guess it keeps him up for some reason. HUGS!!

Connie have fun what ever you find to do!! Thanks for the treats!

Midge stay warm out there. May work be fun!!

venus Happy working and be careful driving in the snow.

No plans here but I think some chili for supper should hit the spot today!! lol

Re: Thursday's Joe's Diner's Grand Opening - 01/24/13 12:00 PM

For all of you in single digit temperatures, I'd just like to say that the only thing in my environment in single digits is the meat in my freezer. Ugh! I can't imagine having to bundle up in layers and layers and wear scarves and hats and freeze my fingers and toes and all that good stuff. Don't think I've been in a cold climate (where I actually had to wear a coat rather than just a sweatshirt, since 1995 Chicago. It was bitterly cold there. I think even the AIR was frozen. Whew! Stay warm people. I think we are getting another 70's day even with the threat of rain (which isn't really happening).

Sidewalk work actually continuing. Yesterday they got 1/2 the block done and are out there early today hopefully completing the other half by Tomorrow. Crossing fingers it all gets done soon as the DUST they are kicking up from all the digging and hauling has made everyone here sneeze and cough and sniffle for the past few days. Goes away when they stop working for the night and returns around 10 am when they are in full work mode. Can't be good for anyone, especially those of us with asthma! Soon it will all be over with a nice new paved street and we can all enjoy the peace and quiet.

My old computer mouse kept dying on me. I'd replug, reset, etc. I bought some new ones but they are all 'ergonomic' and I hate them. Mine is from ancient times and fits my hand perfectly. So I asked my computer guru friend if he could fix mine, and he came up with HIS mouse which is exactly like mine. Plugged it in, works great. I'm back in business and he has another one if this one goes bonkers. I want my mouse to live forever! I wonder if my cat had something to do with its demise? rotfl

We started out with 2 degrees but we are now at 12. It's a heatwave!

I'll be in the corner, I hope to have a productive quiet day.

My direct neighbors house went up for sale this morning. Not pleased...I had nice quiet neighbors and now it's up for grabs again.

be back...

Thumping Good Thursday ya'll puppy

Good morning....errr....afternoon. Good thing the Skymonkey woke me up to go out. Otherwise, I might have slept around the clock.

South Al has temps in the 70's today while North Al has a freezing rain warning out. eek You guys in that bitter cold wrap up and stay warm.

Son's back is very sore after all that staining yesterday so he might wait til next week to do the 2nd bed. We have a really busy weekend coming up. We might get one bed up but I doubt there will be time to get them both done so there is no hurry to get the 2nd one stained today.

Back later wave

Took an emergency trip to Walmart in Giddings this AM with a bunch of money for my credit card and put the pedal to the metal and how. I knew the balance was low but not that much(or less).

My new kitty is still here and becomming most friendly. She's probably a girl but her name will still be Schemer. Maybe Schemer is a girl, who knows. Or I could call her Ocheeva. she's a girl.

The weather is so lovely here, there's planting fever is the air. OhOh and Devil May Cry 5 just arrived too. -so much to do. I plan to order some new PC acton games -any suggestions?

This Asus cmptr is a luxury compared to the old one. It's a shame a certain company put out a product like that old cmptr was.

Anyway the rest of the day will be funzzy. So all not feeling too well, I wish you the best and stay warm you yankees and be kind to your pets and adopt a pet and a wild animal andand....

Happy Thursday

Re: Thursday's Joe's Diner's Grand Opening - 01/24/13 08:25 PM

Ana, "Rhoda" is my MIL's stepmother. We had one of her chicken recipes at Mil's years ago. Super easy and yummy. I'm sure Rhoda's Chicken is not the actual name of the recipe, but it is the only name we knew. Now and forevermore it will be Road Chicken.

Hi ya Trippy. How is the gang?

Re: Thursday's Joe's Diner's Grand Opening - 01/24/13 08:56 PM

A new tradition is born. I am sure they'll be cooking it as adults and calling it Road Chicken. lol

Re: Thursday's Joe's Diner's Grand Opening - 01/24/13 09:27 PM

Now that made me laugh. Road Chicken. OK. Hey Trippy wave Good to see you here my friend. Is it as cold there as it is here? It was 9 this morning. Bit warmer's about 24. I'm cold. I kept having to apologize to my client that my hands are so cold. I don't think I ever warmed up today. Work in the morning. Back in the deep freeze. Oh well. It is winter. I think we got spoiled last winter. It was so mild all winter.

I think I'll get under my warm, cozy blankets in bed. Have a good night all. See you in the morning.

After temps in the teen for umpteen days, today it reached 42. Wonderful and the dogs totally enjoyed it. Did hear we're supposed to have another cold spell moving in.

Hi Midgie; I've been hearing about the temps in the east. Stay warm my friend.

L4L, dogs were so bored with the cold temps; I'd play with them for awhile inside, but they kept going and going and going, just like the energizer bunny.

May all have a restful night.
