Hi, Vision! I had to run to Walmart after I posted the synopses, and I just got back. Not much happening here, just housework and laundry. I haven’t decided what to do for dinner. Maybe chicken or hamburgers on the grill.
Nice, we have snow on the ground.
Brrrr! I heard you have a winter weather advisory for the morning.
...the morgue attendants with their silent burden...
The Big Tomata is now cooked!
Mmmmmmmm, tomata sauce!
We’re in Phila. Having surgery tomorrow. Have to be at the hospital 5am tomorrow morning. Headed to bed now. Will let you know how it goes...
Good luck Dr. Prayers sent.
Let us know when you can, Doc! And, get well from it soon!
Thank you very much.
I’ll be in touch.
