Glad you are feeling better Badger. Good news on having an amiga arrive on Wednesday Twirley.
 
Grrrrr. That was for Cindy LOL!
 
Dad has been in and out of the hospital this weekend. Just bronchitis, but when you are 82 and not in the best of shape physically it really takes a toll. Luckily they readmitted him yesterday eve apparently so he will get some TLC. Took Tom's mom out to Sunday lunch yesterday and of course did stuff for her "maintenance" at her assisted living. Luckily she has settled in and is doing well. I had to tell her (again) that she had memory issues and she looked crestfallen, but recovered (forgot) quickly. Won't remind her again unless it is really necessary like it was yesterday.
 
Onward!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Howdy and good morning all.
 
  Rainy, wet, and humid this AM. Big storm cam up the coast a few hour ago but I was asleep. Very humid now and the current temp is 47F at 7:52. High today 67 degrees and cloudy all day.
 
  Yesterday I never left the house and it was not a good weather day for a beach walk. I did two loads of laundry and watched some football. Chet came over and we took off the side cover of the PC. Fan seemed to be working fine so maybe an intermittent problem ?  Then this morning I got a warning there was a fan failure when computer booted up. Well crud. It seems to be working now. I'll replace that rear fan later.
 
  Today I have an 11 o'clock appointment at the skin doctor. It's my every 4-6 month routine check up. That's all on my list for today.
 
  Some good games to watch yesterday. Great to see the Chiefs beat the Pats. The Ravens and Bills put on a good show. jj good win for your Ravens. MB good win for the Vikings and Badger/C&C yeah for Packers.
 
  MB, I leave for Denver in two weeks on the 23rd.
 
  Jamie, I buy my shrimp at a very small seafood shop that is just steps away from where two shrimp boats tie-up. The same family owns the retail seafood shop and the shrimp boats. Yes, heads are removed.
 
  Bob, your skiing Santas look like a good time. Thanks for your pictures.
 
  jj, that offering of 'finger food' won't feed 25 people. ha,ha. Assuming guests brought some other stuff.
 
  Badger, good to see you are up and moving about. When do you and Babs leave ?
 
  Cindy, good that you and Chris got most of the lights done. I have decided not to bother with hanging lights above the garage this year. I won't be home at Christmas time and ladders are no longer my friends.
 
  When you heading home, Holly ?  Glad to hear you will have some company to share good times.
 
 Time to scoot.
See y'all later,
Bernie

Weekend at Bernie's

Hola Shrimp Lovers.
 
Cindy, thanks for the Joey pic, we are starting to miss our doggies badly and seeing Joey's sweet face helps. I am sure my stomach problems are from drinking too many margaritas for too many days in a row and then my system rebels, feeling much better now. 
 
MB & PJ, that Mango/Shrimp ceviche is as tasty as it looks, I would send you some if I could.
 
JJ, that platter looks delish! 
 
Twirls is having a problem seeing out of one of her eyes this morning, one of the waiters gave her the number of a local eye doctor, we will check later to see if she went to see him.
 
Great pix, Bernie. Replacing that fan is easy peasy.
 
 
Some pix to follow....

Babs, Willow and I went to the Campo de Beisbol for a game yesterday and we had brought along about a dozen baseball gloves and balls for the children. It was a big success and the local P.A. announcer saw what was going on and told the crowd, who gave us a big ovation, really heartwarming. I was also approached by the manager of the local kid's team (El Barracuditas), and we exchanged email addys so that we can bring more stuff for them in the future.
 
 

 
The kid on the left was crying he was so happy to have his own 'mascota y pelota'.
 

 
Girls wanna play beisbol too!
 

 
 
Patty & Larry waiting for transfer to airport, we were all sad to see them leave
 

 
A little food porn.
At Burger Underground, Willow had the 'Oye Ale', smothered in guacamole
 

 
And I was glad to get some solid food, this is the 'C.J. Sunday".
 

 
Finally, on Willow's last night she got hugs and kisses from many staff members at El Pesquero

Good morning BCers!
Cloudy and very windy.  A high temp of 64F expected.
T-storms arrive this afternoon.   Plummeting temps turning to possible snow by morning.
Didn't sleep well last night.  SJ overdid it with the woodstove.  Kept waking up covered in sweat.
The thermostat said 75F.  Whew!  Got up about 2:45 a.m. and cooled the place down. 
Went back to bed about 5 a.m.  Getting a late start on the day.
SJ was having a good time watching football this weekend.  Both U of Memphis and U of Tennessee won. 
Then the Titans won.  Had to keep checking on him to make sure he was ok.  Hollering so loud.  LOL
I was in the mood for comfort food.  Made one of the best pots of chicken n dumplings ever.  Tasted so good.
Cleaned the kitchen.  Finished the laundry.  Washed the dog.  Did a little ironing.    
 
Badger,  almost cried myself seeing all the pics of the children so happy to receive your gifts.  Awesome!
 
Twirls,  hope you were able to see the eye doctor.  Worried about you.  
Glad your friend is coming to stay with you.  Hugs
 
jj,  that appetizer tray looked so good.  Glad you were able to enjoy some holiday time with your cousins. 
 
Jamie,  so nice of your neighbor to put some holiday decorations on your door.  Sweet!
 
Bernie,  lucky you to be able to buy shrimp right off the boat.  We had a dock and store like that in St. Pete, FL.
Miss that place.  I hear you about not putting lights on the garage.  We use to do the eves of the entire house. 
Them days are over.
   
Uphill,  amazing pics from the Santa run.  Bet you had such a fun time.  
 
Cindy,  Hugs... I have a husband like that.  Almost hate to ask him to help with anything.  
You might have noticed the Christmas tree is lacking in lights near the top.  I noticed it after he
put away the ladder.  Which I still needed for placing ornaments.  He said he ran out of lights. 
Hmmm.... I left him two new boxes.  Totally oblivious! LOL  
 
Crunch,  pray your dad is going to be ok. 
 
MB,  stay safe and warm.  Enjoy your walking and exercise.

Afternoon all
 
I was very scared this morning when my right eye seemed like I was looking through Hallocline water or dense fog.  I was out of bottled water so I got a bottle at the restaurant here and rinsed several times and each time it got a bit better.  Has almost completely cleared up.  I think the culprit was an Olay face wipe I used just before bed.  It was a sample pack I brought down.  Unlike Neutrogena , you wet it.  I was out of water so I used tap water.  The wipe foams up.  Either the foaming action or a filament of the wipe might have been the problem.  
 
I had a nice conversation with the quality control gal with the new management regarding the room amenities.  I told her that the location and cheap price is why people stay here but EVERYONE I talk to complains about lack of amenities, like water, coffeemaker, proper towels and supplies ,etc.  I told her I thought many people would probably gladly pay a bit more if the place was properly equipped and the service improved.  The service has improved drastically since I checked in and my rooms have been exceptionally clean.  I told her that some people like a rock hard bed but many do not.  I won't stay here again unless I have a bed that doesn't make me more crippled than I already am and I am coming back by February.  Perhaps some better beds in some of the rooms...and leave some hard beds for others.  Give people a choice.  She will address it with upper management.  I will wait to decide.  
There is a building under construction now that has 4-5 floors with elevators and a rooftop pool.  I spoke with a couple who purchased a 2 bedroom/ 2 bath  condo of approximately 1200 square' for $170,000 while under construction.  Now that might be of interest.  It's a fantastic price for location and size.  Going to check it out although I still don't think I want to own...responsibilities...
 
Meeting my dog lady friends for lunch so ....later.

That is so cool Bernie! As a shrimp lover that level of freshness would be awesome. Good luck at the skin doc.
 
Well done Badger, and great pics of everything. Very cool. Hope Twirley's eye is better.
 
Sounds yummy PJ.
 
Dad will be just fine. Just needs some TLC. Not used to having to be sick alone with nobody to wait on him. That is very hard when you always had a wife who took care of everything. 
 
Took a long walk at lunch. 71 now and 30's and possible snow (a few flakes) tomorrow!

Good evening.  13, cloudy and windy.  -1 this evening. A few inches of light and fluffy today.  I went out and shoveled a couple of times to get some fresh air and exercise.  Finished my Christmas card list too.  Gophers are off to play Auburn for the Outback Bowl on New Years. Some of my family will be going but I declined the invite today.
 
Badger only 6.5" this time around your hood.  Good to hear you're feeling better,  Joe's burgers look fabulous.  Yum, yum, yum.  I almost got teary eyed too with the photos of the kids and their deep sense of appreciation.  Love the pink glove.  Didn't know they had them.
 
Bernie, kept meaning to comment on your shrimp boat pictures.  I would be hitting that local shrimp market weekly. 
 
PJ, good news on hubby.  Cute tree trimming story.
 
Cindy, I laughed so hard this morning.  A few choice words were definitely in order.  
 
Glad to hear your eye issue cleared up Holly.  The hotel could use some changes.  When we were there in May, I remember that distinguished national who I thought was there to observe staff/guests and provide recommendations.  Good luck with your feedback.  
 
Crunchie, poor Dad.  Has it been two years now since your Mom passed?  
 
JJ, nice job on the hors d'oeuvre platter.  Looks delicious.
 
Have a beautiful evening. MB

Badger, bet you made those kid's day!  They sure do love their baseball in PoMo.  The ball diamond was our first stop when we visited.
Twirley, glad you figured out your eye problem.  One of the ladies where my Mom is, had her lens "slip" after falling down.  She'd had cataract surgery and I was hoping that wasn't what happened to you.  Sounds like you're having a good time.  Happy for you!
Crunch, hope your Dad is doing better.  I hear you about the 4 hour getting to the car.  I'm exhausted after taking my Mom anywhere.  I have to say I'm glad that she's content just staying within her little "community" now.  Only time I have to take her anywhere is to the dr.  Which is 2 blocks away.  But we do what we need to do.  Sounds like your MIL is settling in nicely.
PJ, love your Christmas turtles.  What a cute tradition!
Jamie, did you get your velour outfit yet?  Sounds like something I'd never want to get out of, very comfy.
Bernie, we decided not to do outdoor lights this year too.  It's just not worth a fall.  
JJ, I also did limited decorating around the house.  With the littles here for Christmas, everything would have to be put up anyway!
MB, I've always loved playing Christmas music during the holiday, helps me get in the spirit.  Sometimes I feel like a "bah Humbug" and I need to snap out of it!
UHK, all the santas made me smile.  How sweet!
Pam, that Midas is a cutie!  Love the photos!
Soso, the eagle tree is beautiful, so regal!  When do you head south?
Frank, always liked VWs.  We had a VW van back in the day, it had a peace sign on the front!
C & C I'll bet you're relieved that son Matt is doing better.  We never stop being a Mom~
Had a great time in Houston.  The weather was great and Liam and Lily are so much fun.  Lily is only 9 months, but she's a little spitfire!  Always so hard to leave them.
Twins went to visit Santa over the weekend.  Will try to post a photo, it was hilarious.
 
Hope everyone is doing well, enjoy the season!

Good Morning
ALL the kid pictures are so cute!
Badger, I'm thinking you and Babs got a little choked up as well...such a sweet thing you do. Some day one of those kids may make it to the Major League and you helped them get there! Who knows?
Gem, the twins cracked me up, reminds me of when we first took our boys to visit Santa. Almost left before their turn; Santa's eyes were all rheumy looking and I could smell alcohol on his breath...kids never wanted to visit Santa again. At least YOUR Santa is benign looking.
 
When the front arrived here last night the wind was so fierce I could feel the house shudder. Thankfully it has died down. Just a dusting of snow here, but baby it's cold outside!
 
PJ, I didn't notice the missing lights, but LOL. No wonder Chris and Wayne got along so well, peas in a pod. (well, a very large pod if Chris is in it! LOL)
 
More time in the kitchen today, got a good start on the candy making. Think I will work on cookies today, might help the house feel warmer in this arctic weather. And it will make the house smell nice, too!
Have a wonderful day, all!
Cindy
PS. Shout out to the Milwaukee Bucks! 15 wins in a row!

It will be 2 years in February MB, and this month is his one year anniversary living in the "institution" as he calls his very nice senior living place. He doesn't want to move or pay to have more help so we will see how things go. Just glad he is settled and he is back home now (as of last eve) so bless my mom's cousin Phyllis who has taken over "dad management" since my brother and he had their big blow out.  Your weather sure sounds cold, but I am sure all that snow management warms you up!
 
Good news on your eye Twirley. Enjoy!
 
Your house will sure smell good Cindy. I would gain weight just smelling it LOL.
 
Cute kiddos Gem. I wonder if santa could use a valium ha ha!
 
Have a great day Soso, Bobski, Bernie, Jamie, Pamela, PJ, and our lurkers

Howdy and good morning everyone.
 
 Partly cloudy this AM and will stay that way for a bit. Then Mr. Sun will peek out. It's hard to believe it will be a high of 72 degrees today. Right now 62F at 7:14. Isn't that crazy ? Tomorrow high wil be near 50F.
Like a yo-yo out here on the coast. 
 
  SoSo, are you sending that artic blast down from Canada ? Bad girl ! ha,ha.
 
  Yesterday wasn't much fun at the skin doctor's "house of pain". Burnt the 'you know what' outta me but I'll get over it. I did go the lunch at Fibber's. Had the bread bowl filled with great tasting Irish stew and a salad. Dunked the bread into the bowl until most of the stew was gone and I then ate all of the bread. Piggy. A lady sitting next to me at the bar asked for some butter for her bread. I didn't think of that.
 
  No beach walk yesterday and I will stay out of the sun today as well; I'll wash the bedding that I didn't get to yesterday.
 
  Badger, glad you got better and what a great time with the children at the ballpark. You made them very happy. Thank you for the pictures.
 
  Gem, I don't think the twins liked that visit to Santa. hee,hee. Oh well maybe a different story in the future.
 
  Crunch, I know how much you enjoy that shrimp. If you and Tomas ever get out here, I'll take you out to that place and some restaurants that have lots of good seafood.  You too MB !!
 
  PJ, unfortunately those small seafood shops will all eventually fade into the past. One can go to the grocery
store and get "fresh" (?) seafood from places like Argentina. Not fresh !! 
 
  Cindy, I'm sure that you guys hear a ton of creaks and groans from your older home when the wind is a blowing. You probably say to yourself that the house is just "talking" to you, si ?
 
 Coffee all done and time to get ready for the day.
Will see y'all later,
Bernie

Weekend at Bernie's

Buenos Dias all
 
Happy to see the cute kiddies pics and enjoy hearing and seeing all the Christmas cheer going on.
 
Cindy, my Jay was the same in attitude about my projects.  His motto of "the trim will cover it" regarding remodel projects carried over into most everything I asked him to do, no matter how specific I was in instructions.  I learned to just not ask if it was anything I could possibly do.  But I loved him dearly and still think he was my saint.  
Yesterday I had lunch with "dog lady" friends.  Conversation flirted from one thing to another.  Family and friends was a subject, which we all have had problems and adjustments as well as joy.  Unfortunately I got back and in my alone time I began to think about Jay's family.  One grandson had also called me yesterday.  He and a niece are the only 2  who still are friendly.  The rest all hate me and its all about money.  His only son has ignored me for months.  He had asked me for a loan, which I did because I thought Jay would want me to.  He did eventually repay the loan, once I reminded him but since has totally ignored me.  Won't take my calls and doesn't read my messages.  Obviously he is mad because I requested to be paid back.  I don't understand why he is now mad.  The same with his closest brother.  I just don't understand.  It bothers me greatly about his son.  Jay knew that Mike never cared much for me.  I know he had a talk with him previous to his death and I thought things would improve as Jay asked.  Now I wrestle with myself over the situation.  It's very hard for me to decide about what to do.  It's very complicated.  Jay's only request about monetary inheritance I wasn't to change regarding our wills/trust was about Mike's young son.  The rest was at my discretion to be decided because Jay probably knew what would happen.  Last evening I tried once again to communicate with Mike to no avail.  He never even opened my messages although I could tell he was online.  
I had a fitful night of bad dreams and deception.  Wide awake at 3 am.  I hate this.
 
On a better note, it's a warm beautiful morning and I have no abdominal or eye issues.  Thank you Lord.

Once again EASYWAY to the rescue.  This bed is killing me.  Jose Maria is trying to find a memory foam pad at Sam's club today for me.  He had to go to Playa today and if he doesn't find one there, he will go to Costco in Cancun tonight.  I cannot believe the loyal service those guys have provided over the years.

Good morning BCers!
Gray cloudy day.  Snowflakes are falling.  But not sticking.  The ground is still warm.  
Didn't do much yesterday... talk with SC on the phone for a long time.
She was in a chipper mood.  Telling me all about life in Cary, NC. 
I did one-handed chores while talking to SC.  Washed the bedding, loaded dishwasher and took out the trash.
We had leftovers for dinner.  So that was easy enough.    
Have errands to run and a checkup at the heart doctor this afternoon.
Hoping to get a hair cut as well. 
 
Twirls,  sure glad your eye is ok.  As for Jay's son...you've seen this xit show many times in your life. 
Not much you can do to change the mindset after all these years.
Just take care of yourself.  Do what makes you happy.  Get through this world the best you can.
Let Jay's son do the same.  Pray you sleep much better tonight.  Hugs 
 
Gem,  your grandchildren are all so beautiful!  Twins are a hoot!  Santa met his match there.  LOL 
 
Gotta get moving here....
Wishing all of you a wonderful day!  Hugs

Buenas Tardes Mis Amigos, hoy es Martes.
 
PJ, with all the work you got done the last couple of days you are making me feel guilty.
 
Gem, cute pix.
 
MB, I didn't notice until I posted that photo that the young lady's new glove matches her outfit.
 
Twirls, we stopped by yesterday a little after 4, but could not find you, we will try to stop tomorrow around 8 am for breakfast somewhere?
 
Bernie, forgot to tell you that we return home late Thursday.
Received an email from Willow this morning, she left here shortly after Noon yesterday, had her 2nd flight with Delta delayed, arrived Duluth at 1:51 this morning where her truck was covered in 1/2" of ice, didn't make it home until almost 5 am this morning.
 
We didn't do a lot yesterday, couldn't find Twirls so we went to My Little Italy for dinner, where we split an order of Chicken Parmigiana, almost too much food, a nightcap at El P and early to bed. Today we had breakfast and lunch here, with only a trip to the laundry in between to pick up our clothes. Tonight we might hook up with Willy and his family up in La Colonia again.

Wag more....bark less.

For lunch yesterday we went to Tuch Tlan, Babs had a Salbute
 

 
And I a torta Carne Asada
 

 
Bought some Tamales from a street vendor the other night and Babs and I each had one for lunch today, these were Pollo in a Mole sauce
 

 
OH CINDY! Guess what I found? Hope I can keep them out of Twirls' clutches.

Glad you finally checked in Badger.  Sorry but I didn't get back until almost 5.  We were at Unico.  I requested Javier as our waiter.  He knows Valeria and inquired about getting his cat fixed.  I explained that he was a friend of yours and she offered to do it for free!  He was thrilled.
We had a taxi problem getting back.  1st one didn't show so after waiting awhile, we had to call another.  
Badger, how about going to John Gray 's tomorrow morning?  I was there a few days ago with Willow and it was delicious and quiet on the patio.  Not many people there so quick service.  Glad you took me there the first time. I looked for you today but I was miserable with my back and lack of good sleep.  I've been at the hotel today.  However I think I'll sleep better tonight.  If you have time before or after dinner today, stop in.  I have no idea what I'm doing for dinner but craving a good pizza so I'll probably go to Little Italy.
 
I have to say that the new manager, Bianca, is definitely on the ball!  Yesterday all the a/c units were serviced or replaced.  Today she has borrowed a foam mattress topper from another property they own and it is now on my bed.  She actually sent someone to Costco to buy me one but they were out, so a borrowed one is ok.  I will purchase one when they find it and they will store it off sight for me along with my coffeemaker.  They also temporarily fixed the leaking pipe that runs along the outside of the building at my back door causing a very hazardous situation when you step inside on the tile with wet feet.  There is an old repair right in front of my door, which has leaked for years and I complain about it every time.  They will run a new pipe later which will solve the problem.  Now it's not leaking.  Lots of improvement has been underway with various projects.  She also rehired one of the previous good maids so it speeds up the service.  Proper towels and TP have been replaced each day.  I mentioned the water for the rooms...a water cooler for each room seemed cost prohibited at this time so I suggested the old ABR water situation, where a cooler is in each hallway and plastic pitchers for the rooms.  She loved that idea for a temporary improvement.  Things are looking up here!! 
 
PJ, you are so right with your advice.  If he cooks his own goose, he shouldn't complain about nothing to eat when I die.  Since he hates dogs, his share will be donated to animal welfare. LOL!
 
Crunch, glad your cousin is taking an interest in your father's situation so you should fret less.  
 
I've had my 2 afternoon rum and cokes...still working on the 2nd.  
 
I helped my buddy Chuck to get on the Wi-fi and showed him a few things about his phone.  Plus got the child proof things off his lighters, so it's easier for him.  Next I'm going to show him how to adjust his a/c.  It's too cold in his room after the service on the unit.  I showed him how to change the language on his TV and he's pretty thrilled to learn new things.  He's a nice old guy.  I hooked him up as friends on FB and we swapped numbers.  He travels ALOT with a certain global travel group and we may join up for a trip sometime.  He's been just about everywhere including the Amazon and an African safari... hmmm...  but he hasn't been to Italy or a cruise up through New England...hmmm.
 
Later.

Good evening.  -1 and clear skies.  Under a wind chill advisory this evening.The almost full moon is absolutely beautiful.  Hope the kiddos in MX are enjoying as well.  Tone y stretch class today after walking on the track.  Had a new instructor and I think she did a nice job. You could tell she was nervous about filling big shoes of her predecessor.  Did a couple hours of reading and threw together an egg bake for tonight.  

 
Gem, super cute grand kids.  All are so expressive.  
 
Kim, comforting that your cousin is helping Dad out.  Sure hope your Dad and brother can work things out sometime soon.  So sad how events can tear families apart.
 
PJ, so talented with the one-hand approach.  You crack me up.  So uplifting that SC is flying high.
 
Yikes Badger,  What an awful homecoming for Willow.  Your pics and updates put a smile on my face.  Hope you have an amazing full day tomorrow.  Hide that candy.
 
Bernie, sorry about that skin appointment yesterday.  Ouch.  Hope you feel better.
 
Cindy, don't run yourself down working so hard.
 
Edit:  Good on the mattress topper.  I bet you sleep well tonight and have a nice evening.  Your friend will arrive tomorrow so that is good news.  Hugs.
 
Not eating any lettuce products anytime soon.  Be well everyone and have a pleasant evening.  Time to check out that egg bake.  MB

Good Morning
9 right now with a wind chill of -5, high will be 13. Then tomorrow we go up to 35! Will actually feel balmy, but there is snow possible everyday until Sunday after today.
 
Another day of baking today, going to try and get my coconut candies dipped as well. A tedious job, but I do love the result. Like a small Mounds bar, but with chopped pecans instead of almonds. Badger, on those Coco candies you found.
 
Twirls, I echo PJ's sentiments regarding Jay's son. Like the song from "Frozen", LET IT GO!
 
My brain is still waking up, I think I need another cup of coffee...Have a wonderful day!

Good morning folks. I am reading the posts here daily, though I am posting less. I see concerns for parents and loved ones here, as well as the various members. Then I think about myself for a moment and my biggest concern right now is how much damage did last night's rain do to the snow for skiing today. Small potatoes in the whole scheme of things. 

May I offer up holiday blessings and best wishes to happy healthy days ahead for all here? 

All the best, have a great day folks. 

Lovin life,
Bob

I echo all the comments about Jay's son.............
 
Minus anything temp wise ain't right and I don't know how you all adjust to that. Under 36 seems criminal to me.
 
To clarify, my Mom's cousin Phyliis is just incredible. She was very close to my mom so loves dad. She is doing everything for him. Paying his bills for him, arranging and taking him to medical appt's, intervening when crisis's like his latest happen. I couldn't manage Tom's mom and our life and do all that for dad too. I am incredibly grateful to her. My dad will never help my sister in any substantial way and therefore my brother will never see him again. That is where he has set the bar and dad will never NOT be able to justify not helping her so.............. that is that.
 
Ouch Bernie!

GOOD MORNING...and it is!
 
I slept very well.  Still woke up several times because I'm drinking A LOT of water so at least 4 bathroom trips.  I am so thankful to Bianca for the bed pad and getting the water leak fixed.  I've complained about the leak for yeas.  Now there is no water puddle in front of my room.  She's doing a super job at organizing and getting things done.
 
Cindy, I'm working through it.  My only thoughts are on what Jay would want me to do so I pray for doing right by him.  I can't change Mike.  Jay's wishes are my only concern.  I'm pretty sure he would tell me the same.  He was such a wise and patient man.  I have very little patience these days.  
 
Yesterday was Hot and muggy.  Today is expected to be a bit cooler.  Sorry that the weather is so bad up there.
 
Badger, I'll be waiting for you here to go to breakfast.

Howdy and good morning all.
 
  Very cloudy here along the coast and will remain that way today. Current temp is 49F at 8:02 and the high will be 52 degrees. 
 
 I woke up to a cat jumping up on the bed that said MEOW with great vigor. Well ok kitty, time to feed you and make the coffee.  No big plans for the day. Too windy for a beach walk but I will drive over to feed the beach cats. Might be a good day to make my packing list for Christmas in Colorado; 180 degrees opposite of packing for the beach.
 
  Thanks for the food porn Badger. You and Babs enjoy your last day.
 
  Crunch, I'm with you concerning the cold. You and Tom talking about a warmer place to retire ?
 
 Please stay warm MB and Cindy.
 
  Holly, have a great day in the warmth of the tropics.
 
  Thank you, Bob. Good way to look at life.
 
  That's all for me. Time for another cup of coffee.
As SoSo would say, have a gooder !
Bernie

Weekend at Bernie's
