Rambler, good job on the weight loss. Must make you feel better when you look at yourself in the mirror.

Let's seeeeee...
We woke up and made coffee.
I chatted online for a while. I did a head to toe baby oil skin treatment for some very dry skin and future wrinkle prevention.
I again vowed to take down the christmas tree, but have been unsuccessful in getting a "complete" on that so far.
Did I ever mention that I love being FIREd ?
Lunch was corn tortilla chips with Asiago cheese melted on top and TacoBell mild taco sauce. Yes, I save the gazillion extra sauce packets they throw in when I periodically order their 10 taco/burrito family meal. I eat the crunchy tacos right away and freeze the burritos and soft tacos for quick lunches at a later time.

You showed amazing restraint by commenting on the tree versus the baby oil.

Wow, nobody did ANYTHING today.

We had lunch at the Elks Club with a friend visiting from Watertown and went to the Legion for exactly 1 brewski. We came home and watched some mindless TV. I made corned beef hash and fried eggs for dinner. Heavy on the ketchup for me!

I'm surfing, listening to Solid Gold Oldies on a digital cable music station, and just plain goofing off while Mr B catches a short nap.

UPDATE: Watching an Alan Ladd movie, "Lucky Jordan", on TCM.
D*mn he's handsome. Woooooooooooo [faint]

To the contrary.

Ice skating, coffee drinking, watching the snow fall, watch DW make dinner, re-arranged snow, ate some cookies, and dancing is on in about 6 minutes.

So there.

Rode my bike down to look at some birds. Rode my bike to a different place to see different birds. Tried to walk the old dog, who wanted to just stand around and smell poo and pee. Ate some meat, which disagreed with me. In between all these things I goofed around on this forum, on a blog I frequent, and on facebook.


(stupid typos fixed)

What kind of motorhome is it REWahoo? I might be looking for a class B in a few months (a Roadtrek ideally).

What? REWahoo is afraid of the soon-to-come $4/gal fuel price?

Is he going to get a Mercedes Sprinter chassis as replacement or are his travel days over?

Woke up at 11am. Then off to the gym for a couple of hours. Came home cooked dinner and watched the snow fall. We got over a foot here today.
