Mmmmmmm Good

image  That's right this desert was Mmmmm good. Cindy and I stopped over to her Brother Tom's and his wife Sherrri's house for dinner last night. We had Sausage Burgers and Hot dogs off the grill,a kick ass salad that momma made and some Macaroni and cheese. Delicious meal and then some. Sherri topped it off with this Chocolate cake with Strawberries. Look at the presentation on this thing. Look out Julia Childs.

Gretchen stopped by just before we left. She's Tom daughter and is getting ready to go into the Navy. She leaves in August for Chicago. I think it's a great idea. The service really makes you grow up and she'll get to see and do things she never would have other wise. The country will be a safer place because of her.{ Well at least the local roads will be anyway} Congratulations Gretchen. There is no greater honor than serving your country.

I talked to my daughter Adrianne yesterday. She hasn't thrown up and died the last two weeks but she is still getting nauseous. She has a good attitude though she just keeps plugging along. If it was me I'd be in traction in the Hospital with a private duty Nurse. {Hmmm. maybe I'll get pregnant,instead of just looking like I am} Josh and Adrianne find out Monday if the baby is a girl or a boy. I'll update as soon as I find out of course.

I can set aside the paper bag I've been wearing when watching the Yankee games on TV. At least for now anyway. They are on a three game winning streak. The Cheater {A-Roid} will be coming back in about two weeks. If he does much at all with the bat that will help some. Just keep the needles away from him. I'm a happy camper sports wise right now. The Yankees are winning, Tiger and Phil are 1 and 2 in the golf tourney. It's setting up to be a good weekend in sports.

The Swine flu is starting to show signs of letting up in Mexico. So pretty soon the drive by Media will have to start getting their "kiss the Messiah's ass" pen's back out. It should be illegal to have so many Media outlets running constant "free" campaign and propaganda sessions in prime TV. The dummying down of America is in a full court press right now. They are trying to hint that the economy is starting to show signs of improvement. All that means is they haven't gotten laid off yet. It has to get much worse before it's going to get better. They can bail out the car companies all they want. No one is going to buy any cars in great numbers as long as they are worried about their jobs. They would have been better off economically if they had just given everyone between the ages of 21 and 65 in the country 1 million dollars and said "have at it folks". Oh well.

Today is jean day for Cindy at work. If you want to make her happy. Have Jean day at work and Pot pie night and she's good to go. I hope everyone of you {even you Stan} have a good weekend. I'm riding an up wave right now. Heck maybe I'm heading into a Manic stage. Hang on folks.

Indy and I and the special Meat sauce

image Ok, Cindy and I went out and fixed the mess I made of the yard Sunday afternoon. I mowed the whole yard again this time with it set on 3". It looks pretty good now. Cindy took some pictures that I'll put up at another time. Right now though I'm going to give out the secret recipe for Momma's meat sauce that Stephany said she wanted. It's not real hard to make. I'm not kidding it is to die for. Put it on your hot dogs just a touch of mustard if your so inclined and Ummmmm. Ummmmmm.

2 lb ground beef-Crumble into really small pieces as it is getting brown.

1T cummin

1t salt

2t paprika

2t chili powder

1t all spice

4C water

1C chopped onions

Simmer covered for 11/2 to 2 hrs in an electric frying pan with the lid on. Or 4 or 5 hours in electric stove,in a covered skillet.

Ok that's my Betty Crocker moment. I took Cindy to the eye doc like I said in yesterday's post. Every thing went well. They didn't have to dilate her eyes and she has to stop taking one of her eye drop meds. It's always good when you can get rid of a med right? Have any of you clicked on the different language gadget on the side bar? I did the other day. I think this blog is best read in Chinese. It makes more sense.

Since Cindy has the rest of the day off we're going to go to Subway and get a sub and go to the Pavilion that is near the lake which is about 6 miles from the house and have a picnic. That's the lazy mans way to go on a picnic. We go to go to Wally world and get a new cover for the Grill. Haven't heard from my daughter Adrianne in a while. She's doing the Dad who routine? If you happen across this Adrianne give me a call.I think I have the winning ticket in tonight's Mega Million drawing. {That ought to get a phone call}

100_2631 This is me and Indy getting some time on the bench in the front yard. Both him and I need to lose some weight huh? On that front I'm back down to my start weight. Now I just have to keep the trend going towards losing the weight. I don't doubt that I can do it. It's just going to take more time than I want to with not being able to work out. I have the rest of my life so there's no hurry right?

Congratulations Stan!!

 image  It must be true it's in print.

It's official I'm looking for a paper bag to put over my head when I watch a Yankee game. We just lost to Detroit 4-2, after getting swept by the Boston Red Sox over the weekend. I'm not going to be a fair weather fan and quit on them yet but...

Cindy and I mowed the yard Sunday afternoon after Jeff & Amanda & Brandon left. I really messed up pretty bad. I cut it at 11/2 inches instead of the 3 inches I should have cut it at. We have big piles of grass shavings all over the yard. We {Ok I} waited to long to cut it also. It probably should have been cut a few days ago. It's just that we got a lot of rain the other day and it really grew like crazy. It doesn't help that we got some Arizona weather Yesterday and today too. Today it hit 91 degrees here.

Not much else going on really. Tomorrow Cindy is taking off work to go to the eye doctors. I have to drive her over as she's not quite sure what they're going to do. She has some Glaucoma issues and may need to do something like Dilate the eyes.

I went to the Chiro yesterday. As normal my left leg was shorter  than my right. He did his normal yank and jerk and away I went. It's so frustrating. I'm starting to reverse the gain the weight trend I've been on the last week or so. I'm not eating just because I'm bored now. Cindy is on Weight Watchers at work and I'm sort of following along at home. I can feel a difference already. Hey Stephany Cindy made that meat sauce that I drove two hours south of here to get last time. It's as good if not better than the stuff I got. We have about 5 or 6 more servings of it left.

Watched Dancing with the Stars tonight. We like that show for some reason. Stan ought to have fun with this one.I'm in finishing up this post and going to watch Castle. That shows pretty interesting too. Don't hang out with anyone coughing and we'll catch you later.
