  1. I'm so very sorry to hear about Flyboy's death. I hope the wonderful memories of him comfort you during this time. Thinking of you and your family.
  2. None of the experts picked my team to win today. Thankfully, they aren't always right. TITANS!
  3. Fabulous news! I'm going to buy a box of Milk Duds to keep in my medicine cabinet just in case I ever experience that Ebola/Mad Cow combo ... or have a sweet tooth.
  4. It must have been fatal since we haven't heard back. My condolences.
  5. BINGO! Everyone in my neighborhood has at least a two car garage, some three, though you wouldn't know it based on cars parked on the streets. It makes my husband and me nuts. If a person has so much crap that they can't even fit a car in the garage, it's time to get rid of some of the crap. What makes it even more bothersome is that some of the cars parked on the streets are in front of houses where the driveways are empty! WTH!
  6. Yes, it's likely fatal. In the very unlikely event, though, that it's something so simple as contact dermatitis or eczema, apply some thick cream or lotion (Eucerin is good). Take some oral Benadryl to help with the itching, too. You could also apply some hydrocortisone to your hands. If you don't post tomorrow, we'll know you're dead.
  7. Truth! My sister and I often made that fudge when we were younger and it was tasty. We would pour the cooked contents from the pot into a buttered pan and then set the pan in ice water for a few minutes to help it harden. So delicious!
  8. I love the feel and the smell of a book, and prefer to read that way, but I do use the iPad, too, especially when packing light to travel. The library has always been a special place for me. I can just get lost in a book; occasionally, housework loses out to a good read.
  9. I'm sorry you get the holiday blues, brazen. Although I don't get what I consider to be the "blues", I feel that in the hustle and bustle, the holidays get away from us and then I'm bummed, promising that I will enjoy the holidays more "next year". DD has enjoyed decorating her house and wants us to stay with her the night of Christmas Eve, so DH and I have decided we're not even decorating at our house. We plan to attend Christmas parties (first one last night ... it was a blast!), drive around looking at pretty lights, and listen to lots of Christmas music. We spend so much time each year trying to cram in shopping for so many family members that we don't feel we really "enjoy" the holidays. Most of our nephews are in their mid-20's, so we told our siblings we are no longer plan to exchange gifts with our siblings or buy gifts for any nieces or nephews over the age of 18. We do have three nephews and a niece who are younger, though, and we will purchase gifts for them until age 18. We will also continue to purchase gifts for my parents and for DH's mother (his father is deceased). I'm sorry you're not geographically near your family. I know that must be difficult, especially during the holidays. Maybe you can Facetime or Skype with them at Christmas. Hang in there!
  10. You'll never hear the words "War Eagle" or "Roll Tide" from me, but that was one of the most exciting football games I've ever seen. You can always count on the SEC for good football. Congrats on the win! VOLS!
  11. Congratulations, Nana! I'm sure she's precious.
  12. I am so happy for you. FABULOUS NEWS!
  13. Have you ever had the sea salt caramels from Whole Foods? I'm currently eyeing the only two that are left in the house and I don't think I can deny myself!
  14. Beanie Babies were huge when my DD was little and I admit that we had quite the collection going for her, but we never paid more than the retail price. DD is an only child so we always took her best friend on vacations with us and, when in Florida, we found two Bronty the Brontosaurus beanie babies so I bought one for each of the girls. I knew they were hard to find, but had no idea what people were paying for them (we paid $8 for them at a flea market). Once I found out what people were willing to pay for Bronty, I encouraged each of the girls to sell them. They each made $350 for a small stuffed animal!!! I couldn't believe it. They spent $50 at the toy store and put the rest in the bank. Smart girls.
  15. I'm glad you saw a different vet and got a treatable diagnosis for your dog. I hope he feels better soon!
