I'm Alive And Well

Thank you all for your kind comments and telephone calls regarding the loss of little Chloe. I appreciate your support and words of encouragement. I'm getting past the "what ifs", regrets, and grief of losing a pal of 14 years.

Today I went shopping for our Superbowl party - a party that include me, Jerry, and my mom, LOL. Jerr works on Sundays but should be off in plenty of time for the game to start. Each year we load up on wings, fried mushroom, and other foods one would find at the local bar eatery Mugs & Jugs (kinda like Hooters but with a bigger fried selection). This year we are going a bit healthier. I went to Costco and bought a small tray of dim sum, which I will steam tomorrow, a plate of shrimp salad, and two large rotisserie chicken roll ups. Not traditional tail gate food but I also won't suffer Sunday night with acid reflux. Oh no! I just realized that the game might overlap the one of the only two television shows I watch - Big Love.

And yes, even though we live in the Tampa Bay area, we will be watching the game on TV. I'm not going anywhere near the city of Tampa this weekend. Two years ago Jerr, my Dad & I went to Orlando to attend the Capitol One Bowl (used to be called the Citrus Bowl) and it took about two hours to get through Tampa because the Outback Bowl was being played at Raymond James Stadium. We must have seen a thousand cars decked out with Tenessee Titan or Penn State flags, stickers, etc. By the time we were near Orlando all of that had changed to Arkansas or Wisconsin paraphernalia - we sported Razorback flags of course!

Oh, and you have to check back tomorrow for Green thumb Sunday. I have orchids blooming! One of them is quite unusual but you will have to wait until tomorrow to see it, LOL.

Between quasi shopping for a new house and/or RV, we did manage a Monday - Friday trip to Cleveland. I've never been to Ohio before and ...
