It was chilly, Willy. Might not even have been 50 degrees.
I went down to Tractor Supply and Wegmans after chores, and when I got back Gary was making his first batch of sauce. The kitchen smelled divine.
I made two of quarts of pickled beets...
and had a BLT Wrap for lunch.
Several cars pulled in to buy garlic today.
I was supposed to go to drumming, but instead spent a frustrating 2 hours plus with Roger trying to hook up a modem. Time Warner keeps raising the price of our phone/internet/cable connection and I'm sick of it. So, I bought my own modem and will no longer pay the $5.99 per month to "rent" there's. What a rip! The joke of it is, their modem stays here for the phone (no charge) and my new modem takes care of the internet. This country is being taken to the cleaners with all this techie stuff. Do you realize how much each household is spending on these services along with cell phone bills? A huge chunk of everyone's budget. It has really changed the world as we used to know it. People's iphones have been grafted to their hands just in case they need to contact someone for the 20th time that day. No matter where you go, people are texting. What an obsession. Anyway, I finally got everything working and could not have done it without Roger, the mastermind.
Chores a little after 5.
BBQ tonight at the Finks.
This is Andrew....
For the past several years he has come home from The Big Apple (where he works) to throw a party at the home of his parents. He invites about 35 of his pals (Jenny's age group) along with the Smags and us. We are honored to be included with all these "kids," many of whom were my students when they were in high school.
This is our friend Helen...a nationally known artist and good pal.
Miles, on the left, has been a friend since the day he was born and you've seen and heard him on several posts with his band "Brothers from other Mothers." Helen's husband Mel is on the right.
So where are all the pictures of Alicia and Herb??????
The Dinosauer Bar B Que caters the meal and it is mighty fine.
Always a great time.
Good night Karen!
