Hello dear friends from nippy Massachusetts. By the way, my #1 told me a few weeks ago that I talk too much about the weather. I told her that she takes too many selfies. Now we're even.
If it's Wednesday, it's time for Hodgepodge. Lots of great bloggers participate, so if want to meet them, press the button and it will deliver you to From This Side of the Pond. Joyce comes up with the thoughtful questions each week. There will not be a Hodgepodge next week because Joyce and her Mister are beginning a whole new, exciting chapter in their lives. Stop over and wish her the best on her journey.
The Mister and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary this month. We are planning a little get away which I am looking forward to. I need to recuperate from the pressure and stress caused by the crazy, glamorous, overpaid job of blogging.
Happy wife, happy life.

I have been to Queens and New Orleans. The place that I would want to visit is Greenville, South Carolina. As soon as my feet touched the ground, I would rent a car and drive to Charleston so that I could track down this crazy bunch of spoiled rotten movers and shakers.
I could hang out on Patricia's chintz sofa, drink martinis, and watch the drama unfold firsthand. The show ended on Monday night and I am already experiencing withdrawal symptoms.
I feel guilty about talking about the rain that we have been having, considering the devastation parts of the country have gone through recently. There I go talking about the weather again.
It's one of the few desserts I can make all by myself! (The biscuits and cool whip would have to be store bought, though).
6. Aesop's birthday is celebrated on June 4th, although there is some disagreement as to whether or not that's accurate, or if he was even a real person. Regardless, the name Aesop is associated to this day with many well known fables. Which of the following best applies to something in your life right now? The Tortoise and The Hare (slow and steady wins the race), The Ant and the Grasshopper (be prepared), The Fox and the Goat (look before you leap) or The Crow and the Pitcher (necessity is the mother of invention)?
The tortoise and the hare best captures my new
