It was really hard selling the home Bob and I lived in for 35 years...that our kids were born and grew up in...and move down here where I knew no one and had only been a few time in the year and a half before Bob died. Our retirement condo. It was also hard going from a house with land, in the mountains, with to die for views, to a condo in the city. Very big culture shock. Bt, like tngirl says, change can be good. There were still lots of Bob's things here, but not the "ghosts" that were in the other house in Colorado. I needed to be where there weren't so many memories, but still some sweet memories...I hope your move will become something really wonderful for you! An adventure with new memories.

Coming back from the dump I said "wth", I haven't had a drink since New Year's Eve and at 6:30 is the AFC Conference Championship game so I stopped at the packie and bought a bottle of wine for myself. Having a porkchop, mashed pot. and peas and corn.

Did I tell you guys that I bught one of those new "Greensomething" fry pans they sell on tv? They were for sale in my CVS last week. Damn, that pan fries so good! With half the flame I usually use and half the time it usually takes! Last week I cooked the perfect steak. I cooked a p'chop last week too and it came out so juicey and tender. I normally sear then boil my chops in a covered pan with onions. Makes the chops fall apart and good gravy. With cooking for one I decided to give up on the gravy and just fry the chop. I hadn't done it yet because the only chops I've ever had that was totally fried was when my daughter cooked. They were tough and dry. So I bought this new pan and gave it a try. Now I can have chops anytime I like! Yay!

Yes, I love me a good bottle of wine too!!

I had never heard of the green frying pan, I'll have to check it out....learn something new every day!
You could still add some onions even to one chop....thanks for the tip!

I'm watching your Pats.....watched the 49er/Falcons game, that was a good one. I will be sad when football is over

OH "the agony of defeat". It looked like we just gave up at the 2nd half! Yep, I get sad when there is no moe football either. I like the game.

I did have a fried onion, tn. The pan is made of ceramic and cooks like crazy. "As seen on tv" dot com should show you that pan. "Orgreenic" may be the name?

I couldn't believe the Pats let the Ravens run over them in the 2nd Qtr just like the Broncos let the Ravens run over them. You'd a thunk the Pats would have learned something from the Broncos/Ravens game. Nope. I guess the Ravens earned the Super Bowl spot. Sad, too that there's no more football. Pro Bowl from Hawaii next week, then the Super Bowl.

The first year we went to the Pro Bowl, The Back Street Boys and NSync were the half time shows. Our boys were 10 and 15 at the time and were sure they died and went to Heaven. The next time was someone named Cheyenne Kimball or something.

We were on the side facing them.

The closest Earl and I ever got to the Pro Bowl was making bag tags for it at our old job. Earl made the "jigsaw" pieces and I put it together. "Jigsaw" is the only way I can describe the work we used to do so people can understand how bag tags are made.

We made the first bag tags for the first Russian golf course too.

Why, smilin'? Are you a vegan? Or do you follow Sabbatical Laws?

Time for me to head to bed. I had to shovel today and my shoulders are just killing me! Straight across through my neck. Every year, the frst and second times are the roughest.

You and Bluff have a good night. Sweet dreams.
