Good Morning!

Nothing like having to think early this morning Dianne. If michael's answers are correct, then I got most of them. Now, if I had more coffee in me I might have gotten them all.

Flapping a wing at all the Hooters who fly in today!!

Lynn D said...

Hi, HOoters! This is J/L. I'm having a grand time with Lynn and Barb. Barb is the hostess with the mostest. Bear, of course, is all the the hostest with the mostest and did a wonderful job hosting this year's BABB. He barbequed delicious steaks and salmon and had all the trimmings. Good times and many laughs. Thank you, Bear!

Michael said...

Stone cold sober...


However I do take a variety of medications...

2 for my dibeetus...
2 for my high blood pressure (cutting doesn't work)
2 for my Mineres Disease...

then Pristiq with a Xanax chaser along with a hit of 1mg folic acid...

Michael said...

Oh! ...the folic acid adds a nice touch of color to the mix...its a lovely buttery yellow...

one of the BP pills is coral and the Pristiq is pink...the rest are all white but I must say one has a pearlescent thing going on...

although I would like to improve this color mix the doctors frown upon treatment by color rather than need.

I'd like to see the drug companies get on board and start paying a little more attention to a patients ability to match their drugs to their ensemble or their home decor....or at least to a color combo that is pleasing to the eye..

Bunch of republicans I bet...

Tina~in_ut said...

Evening, Shirley! Well, it's halfway through the night in Nova Scotia!

Hey, we sure missed all the owls who couldn't make the BABB this year! But don't worry... we did get to talk to Zona on the phone, and as for the rest of you (Michael, Tina), well, suffice to say, did you feel your ears burning at any point on Saturday night? LOL!

Dianne/Denver said...

Hi Everyone tonight.....Thanks for the comments on the blog today. I missed a few of those questions when I first read them last week. I felt pretty dumb when I read the answers to myself

Not much new on this end of the world. Glad you all had a fun time at the BBQ. It sounded like a lot of fun and very sorry I wasn't able to come this time. I thought about all of you throughout the day.

Time for bike and bed. Have a good sleep everyone.
