I shall certainly check out your recipe in a moment Suzi, sounds like it was a success.  How is DH doing with his eye drops? they should be just about finishing now if my calculations are right lol.

Beth has passed on your tip about the poncho's Lisa and said any more tips please keep them coming.  Good luck with the cleaning behind the washer and dryer, you can guarantee to have a mess there as they are not something you pull out every day to clean behind (I certainly don't)

Lovely and cool this morning.  It's cloudy but doesn't look like rain clouds, my lawn could sure do with a spot of rain.

I hope you got everything cleaned up Lisa... tomorrow is the big delivery day  😊  I like to try new recipes to add to the mix too 😉

DH is done with all eye drops except the glaucoma one, and it's only in 1 eye 😜  We could use some rain too Bren 🤔

I went to the Dr. today and they are changing a lot of stuff in their computer system. They were all having problems figuring stuff out, including the Dr. 🙃 It was a mess. Oh well, I don't have to go back for 6 months, so I survived 😅 We stopped at Dollar Tree and got some things, then to Walgreens where I found some 8GB flash drives for .99 😊

I will certainly pass on some more tips as I think of them Bren.  If they already have their Disney tickets, they may want to go to this site https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/fastpass-plus/  and check into getting fast passes.  You can sign up for them up to 30 days in advance.  The only thing I'm not sure of is you may have to have the Disney app on your phone.  We have always done it that way and Casey always does it for us all.  You are allowed 3 fast passes per day and you practically walk into the rides instead of having to stand in long lines.  It's definitely the way to go so you can spend your time riding instead of standing in lines.  After you use the 3rd fast pass, you can go to any kiosk at the park and do another one.  You can choose the time you would like to ride the attraction and it's good up to one hour if you're running a little late getting to the ride.  They have a separate fast pass line to go through.  It's the only way to go.  Everyone in your party can go at the same time.  They might want to download the free app onto their phones.

Suzi, hopefully by the time you get back to the doctor, their computer problems will have been solved lol!  8 GB flash drives for .99 is a steal!  I know you (and DH) are so glad all of those eye drops are over with except for the glaucoma one.

Glad DH is down to just the one drop Suzi, makes it a lot easier for you.  Sounds like the Dr. is having computer problems, that is the trouble with changing things.  Seems you got bargains again, that's not a bad price.

Thank you for that link Lisa, Beth is fast becoming the most popular girl going on the trip with all the tips she is passing on from you.  Even the teachers escorting them are taking notice, they are very impressed that her Grandma has a friend who lives so close to Disney, and when she told them I had a friend in Texas as well, they all wanted to know if she lived near the Alamo.  I told her I didn't know but that Suzi was a great cook and that she had tried some of the recipes passed on to me.

Yes, DH will be going in 3 months, we'll see if they have it straightened out by then 😉  I think it's because of the changes in healthcare...

I'm glad Lisa can be so much help! That's great 😊  You can tell Beth I live 5 hours from the Alamo 😉  and thanks for the compliment!

We went and picked up a few things from the grocery store... we may be getting the boys Tuesday 👍I'll hold off getting excited, but be ready 😉
I was happy with the flash drives, I bought one last year there (same kind) and it works great! I heard today that my nephew's pawn shop had been broken into last night 😠 the guy busted out the glass in the door, but couldn't get in. Luckily he had a great camera on the front of the business and got several great photos of him 😊 This is in Missouri. I think they already know who it is 🤗

I'm glad I can help out a little with the tips for going to Disney.  They are going to have so much fun on their trip.  I'm not sure if I mentioned the Bellagio in Vegas, but they need to go inside the hotel and see the enormous and beautiful floral arrangements.  I've seen it a few times and it's worth seeing.  Of course they will probably be at the Bellagio to see the fountain show anyway.  Here is a link with the latest display http://www.latimes.com/travel/lasvegas/ ... story.html

Suzi, You manage to find the best bargain of anyone I know.  I certainly hope the boys make it on Tuesday.  I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.  It's hard to believe that school starts here in less than a month.  That's just awful about your nephew's pawn shop.  Glad he couldn't manage to get inside.  Hopefully they will catch him from the photos taken with the outside camera and have some proof to arrest him.

We have another funeral at church tomorrow for an older lady.  She just buried her husband a few months ago. She was just at our house for Easter dinner this year.  I have known her since I was a little girl.  They diagnosed her with pancreatic cancer about a month ago and said she had 6 months to live but she died within a month.  So sad.  She was a very sweet person and kept us all laughing with her stories.

You and my DIL are just about the best bargain hunters I know Suzi, if I shop with her I trail around and hope she spots something for me lol.  That is a shame about your nephew's shop but good he couldn't manage to gain entry.  They should be able to arrest him with the proof from the camera.  I hope the boys are able to come, fingers crossed for you.

Thank you for that link Lisa but unfortunately it says it is not available to EU countries, but I told Beth to let the teachers know and they can go see when they tour around Vegas.  Sorry to hear about the old lady, it seems that she was a nice person.

Yes, my nephew knows who it is now, they just need to find him 😠  His camera took excellent photos! I'm sorry for your loss of your lady Lisa... she sounds very special 😔

I'm sure they will be making an arrest soon Bren 😉 I bet they are all excited to get going on their trip 😊

I'm crossing my fingers nothing goes wrong getting time with the boys too 🙄 The plan is to go Monday for Dumonee's BD party, then bring them back with us Tuesday (I think) I'll get stuff ready just in case, but won't go to the grocery store for extras until they're here 😉

Sorry about the link Bren.  You could try googling the conservatory and botanical garden at the Bellagio in Vegas and you may find it.  The display for the summer looks real pretty.

Suzi, the plan for going to Dumonee's party and bringing them back home with you sounds like a good one.  I know you all will enjoy the visit.

The memorial service today was very nice.  Her daughter and DIL spoke telling stories about her.  She was a real spitfire.  There were so many people there that I haven't seen in years.  The pastor said it was like a homecoming with so many people that had left the church for one reason or another.  I ran into a US FL Senator there that I went to school with and told him about the squatters that live across the street and I got my say in about the adverse possession law and how that law needed to be gone.  He repeated my address and seemed like he was interested but I'm sure forgot all about it as soon as it came out of my mouth lol  Maybe he will look into it since election day is right around the corner.  At least I bent his ear for a few minutes.  That law is just so ridiculous how someone can just move into an empty house and claim it as their own.  I told him how they were convicted felons and had been arrested since they moved in and that I didn't feel comfortable going into my own front yard to work if I was home by myself.  His mom and my mom have been friends for about 45 years so maybe he will be interested into looking into the problem.  Although from everything I have read, the only ones that can kick them out is the owners which is a huge bank and they don't seem to care.

I hope you enjoy the birthday party Suzi and that you can bring the boys back to stay with you.  Good idea not to actually buy anything in advance, easy enough to pick it up on the way home as I guess you have made a list lol.  Glad your nephew's camera took such a good photo Suzi, makes it easier when the police know for certain who they are looking for.

Glad the service was nice for your lady Lisa.  It's possible your Senator friend will remember what you said and look into it for you, fingers crossed.  I am going to try googling the Bellagio in Vegas afterwards and see if I have any luck.

Bruce and DIL are going for holiday for a week when Beth is away so poor Ellen will be 'home alone'  She has decided to come and stay with me on the Friday and Saturday night but will be home for the rest of the week because of work.  She said it won't be so bad in the week as  she will be out all day, and of course, there are several family members living close by.
