Linda, I hope you're managing Lilia's care and not hurting too much. It's a lot to ask, managing an active four year old for a week. They owe you a vacation, seems.

So far so good. I was exhausted last night when I went to bed, and very tired now, since I had water aerobics class today.

We went to Harris Teeter on the way back, we were really low on Hot Pockets and they were on sale there.

And we got one package of something we hadn't had in ages, Nutter Butter peanut butter wafers. So delish! But just one package. They were devoured shortly after we got home.

 :laugh:

Well, I'm glad you didn't buy a whole case of them, then.  Might have made you sick, eating so many all at once.   ;)

Hi, Linda.  Durians were new to me too.

Hope you day was a good one.

I had a nap (woke up too early this morning) and now have a salad to eat for dinner.  A good salad, with chicken on it.

Hey Chuck!

Will you be having bowling withdrawal symptoms soon?

Sunny and friendly again.  Still quite chilly.

Hiya Ingy!   We finally had sun today, and the temps were upper sixties, so it was finally feeling like a spring day.

I've seen it quite a number of times, and it's even more shocking than the injury itself. Grown men, falling down just like this! from the mere sight of some red drops.

The only time I saw it (and I wasn't there) was in a skating competition, two male skaters collided and fell to the ice.  One was bleeding and didn't know it.  As he was getting off the ice, he touched his face and saw the blood, and almost fainted.

I would assume it was a combination of the shock and blood.

I told Phong about a story I read in a newspaper here the other day. The University of Canberra Library called the fire brigade and emergency services because of a smell of gas and the library was evacuated.

I turned out to be a durian left near an air vent or heater.

Yesterday morning Phong decided to go shopping at the Talad Thai supermarket and get some durian. He went by train to avoid traffic and parking problems. He bought a number of other things, but thought if he carried durian on the train, the carriage would be evacuated, so he didn't buy any.

He kept laughing about it all through the evening, when he came to bed and first thing when he got up this morning.

It's good to have something that keeps you laughing!   My supervisor (Sacha) and I have been laughing the past few days over something.  We spoke to a colleague who works in another office, and she takes the bus to work.  She told us they had a pot-luck lunch at her office, and she made a ham.   Sacha said "You took a big-ass ham on the bus with you?".   It was then explained that she had sliced the ham and put it in the container with some of the juices to keep it fresh.

Every so often we think of her on the bus with a big ham on her lap, and start laughing.

Glad to hear about your great scores and the team's stellar results, Chuck! :) Enjoy the absence of rain.

Hello Jenny!  I hope you're well!  ;D  As for the absence of rain, there was a story online for NJ that said before today, out of the past 30 days, only three have been rain-free.

It's nice to see sun today.

The car passed state inspection, ready for another year.

It's time for some more trips over county lines!

Lines will have to wait till I can get west of the Missouri! No car accessible lines east of there!

Well, he made an effort when we got here, and now he's so busy with work, garden, household etc. - there's simply no time for it, and in the evenings he's often beat.

But I have to admit it makes me a bit sad. For both of us, especially in the long run.
Well, stop beating him every night!!  ;D :P :laugh:

Hello Diners!

;D

Happy hump day!

Good evening, Chuck!  Looks like I missed you, but maybe you'll be back.

Happy Wednesday!

And Fritz, since tomorrow IS Thursday, I have a fasting blood test (uh-oh, blood in the Diner again!) at 11 AM tomorrow, so no idea when I'll be here, or be leaving, or be back.  I'd like to eat a big omelet breakfast out after the blood draw, if the weather is good  (it's not that much extra distance).
