Larry, I do hope things settle down for you soon. *hugs*

Hiya Bill!

Sara, I'll take a few of those delicious sounding chocolate chip cookies. You look after us so well here.

I'll grab a lemon and ginger tea.

I like providing treats :)

Welcome and a big, 'So how's by y'all?' The coffee pot has been cleaned (sorta) and filled with store-bought coffee and water from the garden hose out back and is now converting that into a caffinated elixir. Meanwhile, the tea kettle has kettled a whole lot of water from that same source int hot water for the tea and coco crowd.

Just so the sports deprived know, next week ESPN will begin broadcasting some Korean league baseball games. I'm told the talent level over there is somewhere between AA and AAA minor league baseball over here.

Got me a couple butterfly cookies and a mug full of coffee. My parting advice is for y'all to do the same. ;)

The day begins rather well. Feeling much better. I've got some issues to work out.

Having some of your coffee, Bill. We know how well you make java. I'll try one of the chocolate chip cookies, Sara.

Puppies! Yay! More cute animals to populate the Internet (because, hey, we all know that's what DARPA built it for).

* Takes one of each cookie and makes a green tea. *

Kind of meh weather here. Cool and had flurries going on and off until noonish. Apparently similar tomorrow.

So guys, ever started using a disposable razor and realized that it was probably past time to dispose of it? Because that happened to me today. Still have a sore spot below my jaw (I sport a beard, the razor is just to clean up stubble below my jawline and on my neck).

Have a great day, everyone.

An inspirational good morning to all inspired to enter Inspirations. ;)

Good to have Larry pop inn yesterday with Vic the official Inspirations mascot. I'd have been here, maybe, except, well, I wasn't. My loss. The good news for anyone who follows is the kettle is full of hot water and the coffee pot is also full, but with hot coffee. There are still some of Sara's cookies. Think I'll grab one or two, okay, make that a few, fill my mug with fresh coffee and start trying to catch up on my Stories Space story reading.

I've started working on my second cuppa java this morning. Too chilly outside.

Does anyone notice how quiet it is around here?

I've gotta get something written. Anything. There are so few things being posted recently. Have a great day, all.

In Big Bird we have:cinnamon stars, oatmeal orange cookies, peanut butter and banana cookies and chocolate&vanilla pinwheels

Hmmm. * takes a cinnamon star and a peanut butter banana *

Evening, folks. Nice day here so I got a walk in. Still a bit chilly but apparently it's all uphill from here temp-wise.

Tried my new neck/stubble razor yesterday. Kind of works but not as close as my disposables. Need to try doing it in the shower since it supports wet and dry.

Good coffee, Larry. Even better cookies, Sara. And a big 'Happy Hump Day' from this charter member of the over-the-hill gang.

Sunny and 75 degrees F

So I think that calls for beach themed sugar cookies pretty sprinkles and diabetic friendly.

Cookies yum! I'll take a few. Not that my thighs need them, but at this point, I'm not too worried.

The weather is beautiful here. Warm and sunny and it's going to be in the eighties by Friday.

I'm tired. My father's late-night calls asking why he is a prisoner or why I don't come and see them are wreaking havoc with my sleep. All I can do is try to explain again why which he will remember for a while but as soon as my mom goes to sleep he forgets and calls me. Sigh... some things have no easy answers or solutions.

I hope everyone is doing well. Northern Virginia is continuing their stay at home order until the end of the month when they will look at the numbers again.

I'll have ginger ale and take it out to sit on my deck and read a bit before I need to finish cooking dinner.

Cheers Everyone!

Some of my stuff.

Everything is looking lovely today. The temperature is 65F/13C degrees and perfect for walking Victor.

The coffee has just finished percolating. Time for a cuppa.

Morning. Unless someone's been fiddling with the way-back machine, it's Friday. Somehow, boisterous TGIF celebrations do not seem in order.

On the other hand, we can celebrate the good weather in the neck of the woods inhabited by Larry and Carl and Vic. And while the weather is forecast to be vile in Gil's area of operations, at least it may give her a chance to catch up on reading and napping. Heck, even Sara and I are basking in relatively decent weather. As for our founding father, who knows what today's weather will be like north of the border, up Canada way?

The good news is there are/were some oatmeal raisin cookies left, for now. The coffee pot and kettle are ready and willing to be of service.

Y'all do the best ya know how.

A happy good day to all. The coffee is ready. I just poured a fresh cup. Too hot to really savor as of yet.

Lovely day outside.

Going to do some writing today, for certain. And I think I need to do some proofreading for a friend, as well.

A totally insincere 'Good Morning!' to all. ;)

Thanks for the coffee, Larry. Glad you and the beloved Vic are experiencing some decent weather for a change.

Now having obtained a mug full of coffee and a representative sampling of Angel's cookies, I'll fold my tent and slip away before the boss shows up.
