Good morning. I guess I missed Boston Cream Pie Day. Darn. :-( Was able to get up and around yesterday walking....not much, but heck, it's better than laying in bed anymore. I may be able to go home today, so they say.

DG, I promise I won't do it again. I copied the stations I normally post for, and I seemed to get called out on it by everyone and anyone. I guess there's no cheating allowed, as far as GB is concerned. LOL

Good morning everyone. Just checking in to let everyone know I'm doing fine, and surgery was success. Sure wish I could get more pain meds though. Sounds like I can go home in 2 days, I hope.

Have a great day everyone!

MadDog, I'm aware of the seizure of funds. :( Just for the record, I have to give you a hard time. ;) Isn't it cheaper for them if you do drive rather than fly? Yep, I'm time traveling again. :)

annette, I think just about all cheesecake is good. Nuts are good too. Hmmm, chocolate covered macadamia nuts. :)

rj, Hope the weather down there is nice. :)

RJ...I have on workday left and then I'm off for two days. I'm still trying to find out details on when I'm supposed to leave out on Sunday. I plan on driving rather they like it or not. I'm not going to spend 3 weeks in Fort Lauderdale/Miami area without a car....too bad we can't get a whole weekend off, I'd be tempted to drive down to Key West and party! LOL

Ann....you mean they have a day for guys like me to celebrate? Wahooooooo! LOL

DG....Guess you are traveling again! LOL

DG...if you must get technical, we are not tax payer funded! When we were making billions in the black, the federal government came in and took it! So now that we are hurting, they are turning their backs on us! So :P The only reason we are connected to the US Government is because they want to be sure that the nation has a good mail system in place and that the integrity of it is protected!

MadDog, Kept woman, oh no, I just want to live rent free and spend my time on the beach. LOL

Dirt, I can say that I haven't had booya. Interesting

Gas, I have been fortunate enough not dealing with bad traffic until Katrina hit Louisiana in 2005. Then all down hill since.

rj, Had to look up boudin. Never had that either. Here is the link to Booya pronounced just like it looks. It's served mostly by churches, VFW's, Legions and Fire Departments in the fall of the year. The recipes are a well guarded secret and people bring containers so they can bring some for home.

annette, Love mushrooms. Was so wet this year actually had a few morels growing in my yard. Hope they come up next year. :)

RJ, I passed through Louisiana and did try the boudin(sp). However as crowed as the interstates are there - not nearly as crowded as up here in the Mega-opolis! I-80 and I-95 are the worst and avoid I-84 and I-97 on Sunday's if you can.

bwaaahhh...good one Gas.

Dirt, you cannot ever pass through Louisiana without trying at least one of the two. It's a cardinal sin. PS, did you mean boudin??

Mad, That interstate is pretty long and boring with tons of traffic...always.

Ann, I am shedding pounding as I am clicking away. This keyboard feels my frustration....hahahahahahahaha
