Gloria, it was your birthday? HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! Hope it was a great one, and that you have a great year.

Wish I lived near you; would love some of that BBQ chicken!! What part of TN are you in?

BTW, I'd be interested in looking at that mac salad recipe.

Happy Saturday Buddies!!!
I have been enjoying the shade at my house, David mowed and I am getting grass clippings for my organic garden, the ground loves them hehe!
Took a quick break to make lunch for everyone, Earlier I fired up the grill, BBQ chicken, Burgers, Ribs with my special home made BBQ sauce and home made coleslaw, Macaroni salad used my Mom's recipe she created about 55 years ago, it is scrumptious, have yet to see a recipe that even comes close to hers, If anyone would like it let me know, I will post it here,

Wishing everyone a spectacular Saturday and Sunday which isn't to far away hehe!
Hugs and TOL!!

Good evening buddies!!!

Fresh tea and lemonade on the counter , with a double chocolate muffin, fresh out of the oven, yummy in the tummy!

Pard, so happy to hear the garden is going and the herbs will be really good in your seasoned salt, please share the recipe when you get a chance *--*

goldie - oh I must make a gluten free goodie this week, will have it on the counter on Friday, tomorrow is a busy one, have my 9 year old G.D for the day we are going to the local matinee and watch Charlotte's web, she told me she saw it on TV, but she never saw it with me, I thought that was so cute!! You are so right about the way to ask for Tea in the South, I had forgot all about that *--*

senile1 - Good evening and thanks for stopping by!!!

HELLRAZOR - Good evening, don't forget to have a beverage and the snack of the day always fresh and mighty good, any leftovers I throw out for the birdies, they always thank me hehe!

Thanks again Buddies for stopping by, until tomorrow Peace and Light!!

I must get out and water a few tomatoes and my petunia's , it has been in the 90's this week and no rain in sight until maybe Saturday, sure glad I have my rain barrel, *--*!!! If any one has a rain dance formula pass it on hehe!

Hugs and TOL!!!

Hi Gloria and Buddies.

thanks for the sweet tea and scones. I love scones, but only took a bite b/c I am not supposed to eat wheat, due to a sensitivity. It was good though.

Reminds me of when I lived in the South, and had to remember that the teas were reversed. Here, "tea" means a cup of hot tea, and "ice tea" is that. But down there, "tea" means iced tea, and you have to remember to say "hot tea" for that. :)

I like (ie, must have!) lemon in my ice tea, but not in my hot tea. Go figure. :)

Hi Gloria. Very weird: both Pard and I were thinking of you at the same time! I was writing your PM at almost the same time she wrote the post below, and had started thinking of it before that.

I hope all is well, or at least "normal".

BTW, do you have a "favorites" list, so you can easily see when someone posts to one of your forums? Of course, that only works if you get onto the computer and look at it. :)

TOL!

Hi Gloria, good to see you again! Sorry to hear about the trials and tribulations. Is David your Hubby? Hope his bones and wounds heal quickly now - sending Light and Love and healing energy.

It just seems like one thing after another, doesn't it?

Happy BD to your GD. Have a nice weekend!

Do you have any ice tea with lemon that isn't too sweet?
;)

Gee I had forgot about the garden party!

Pard, we sure had to wait this year to get our gardens out! Mine has only been out 3 weeks now, and of course we haven't had any rain since, following the same steps as the last 4 years, my rain water supply is all gone, had to fill my containers with city water nad let sit for 24 hours whew, I am praying for rain , but no tomorrow, my G.D. will be 9 tomorrow, she is having her party at our local city pool and than pizza in the park and my cake which I need to get busy making for her *--*! Pard I hope you and your family have been doing well! Have you in my thoughts and prayers!!!

It has been one hectic year! Started back on Dec. 27th when David broke his ankle and one complication after another and the end is still far away! Now he needs some sort of machine to help mend an area of the ankle bone that is not healing, thankfully the skin graft took on the one side and the wound is healing on the other!

Thanks for letting me vent a bit here about it!

Hugs and TOL!!!

Glori - have not heard from you in a while. I happened to see your thread and wanted to stop by and see what you have been up to.
Done any good cooking lately? I miss your recipe postings.
sad news, we think that jj went to that great cornfield in the sky. She talked about having a top secret thing and that she was really tried. Anyway, her last post was Nov 2013.
Come stop by the cornfield when you get time. Don just had an operation and is home from the hospital and is doing ok.
Good to stay in touch with friends

Happy Valentines Day!!!! Pard, goldieolds, howard and all my great buddies!!!

I just saw this when I went to check a forum to post quickly, my life has been so up and down! On DEc. 27th, 2013 , my Housemate broke his ankle really severely., has had 3 operations and the 4th will be on Monday for skin grafting, that is the most recent events , last year had many more downs than ups and grabbed up all my time!
Hopefully this month will wrap up the downs and bring all ups with the arrival of hopefully spring as I have severe cabin fever!
Wishing you all a Tremendous evening and I will stop by as soon as possible again!
Hugs to all and TOL!

Way, way too cold for garden parties here. You can't even see the gardens under all the snow. And with temps below zero and windchill temps in the -20ยบ range, even the thought makes me shiver.
