.....I'm use to checking for previous days posts to verify what day it is....TODAY WAS TOUGH, Doug! :ROFLMAO:

Top of the morning, and HAPPY SATURDAY TO ALL! 'nice'F heading to 90F with sunshine. And looks like 'heat wave' is back stretching through all of next week.

A pretty open slate here.......Jen's heading down the street here to one of Our Adopted Kid's BABY SHOWER freeing Hack n Hack to roam.:cool:

Peace to go with the morning coffee, and plenty of both to share,
Hack

Slept till near on 7a this morning......feels like half the day is shot sleeping soooooo late. ;) But after a particularly enjoyable as well as a learning something new session, Jen and I put a movie under our belts......burnt the midnight oil and didn't get to bed till, well, MIDNIGHT.

So today no real rush to get 'out there', so let the day.....SLOWLY begin.

Good mawnin’, Hack, and all of TRT!

Coffee is up for those who can drink it. I also have some great freshly ground decaf with full bodied flavor. We haven’t had Thomas English muffins in a long time, so let’s make our own egg McMuffins. Or we could have pancakes with cut up peaches on top.

Hack - Is the world safe with you too guys on your own today? Or it could be that the world is safer with you too on your own today. 😂

So how did the chat go last night? I couldn’t tell from everyone’s comment.

Jeff, how did Max like his little pool yesterday. I bet that was so cute to watch him walking around in it.


Not quite as warm today, we have a strong chance for thunderstorms this afternoon.

just took my last dose of the antiviral med. I’m looking forward to feeling better this afternoon!

let’s make a groovy with extra groovy this added today.

Lots of love and hugs and peace to everyone!

Good morning, Vinnie! I had completely forgotten that you had a jellyfish tank. What size is the tank and what a size are the jellyfish?

Mornin all. How’s things? Mmmmm. Thomas’s English muffins. You are my favorite Cath.

Already got a load to the dump and some yard work to do. Once I figure it looks like I did something around here I will be in the garage for the rest of the day. Hope to get that tank drilled if my son can come help me flip it over. Then the plumbing can begin.

Top of the morning Vinnie and Cath.......and well wishes divided equally.
Sitting in the open windows here Vinnie in one of our recliners, feeling the cool breeze, I share with you the 'niceness' of THAT in the mornings. (y)

Last night Cath, from my experience of it was the culmination of a whirl wind effort on Vinnie's end presenting us with a new 'option' for one day perhaps expanding our capabilities on here.
I found new excitement as I looked around the new site, and kicked the tires.....with several, "Oh, cool.....that's what THAT does'" moments for me.
I thought it 'streamed' smoother than GOOLE, and has more 'viewing options'.....which I don't completely grasp at the moment, but according to Vinnie can be joined from FB as well as YouTube....AND can/IS recorded for referencing in the future. ("Life would be soooooo much simpler without 'spelling'. :ROFLMAO:")
It was Vinnie, Rick and I on last night.....Doug kept eluding to joining but never made it. Rick I think was on his 'phone' and had difficulties at times with the SOUND aspect, and actually he looked a little 'freeze framed' at times...a 'phone thing' with this? It was a kicking the tires session, and probably ran about an hour'ish.....with no threats of being closed down. A thumbs up from me. (y):cool:

As dandy as it is, the virtual feast has still left me a tad wanting....gotta raid the kitchen for something a little 'heavier'. I find myself hamstrung a bit here, as we lost our toaster this past week.....NO, I actually know 'where it is', it just died.
And toaster ovens and me are very aquatinted yet, so takes some options away from me.

COFFEE is still very much on the menu for me Cath, it's just that 2 days prior to my up coming stress test I can't drink it. 'DECAF' and COFFEE.....like oil and water Cath...don't mix.
Shortly after I got out of the service and to try and overcome my 'antsyness' someone thought it a great idea to get me to drink decaf. The option back then was Sanka......yeah, that went well.

Good morning Rick and Cath,
The jellyfish tank is 40 gallons, it built for commercial use. I didn’t buy to have jellyfish but for seahorse fry, but it just didn’t do what I needed it to.
The chat was good.

Ya know Vinnie...... :unsure: ......That 'TANKED' idea for a name of a virtual weekly thread is down right BRILLIANT! A play on the 'Wine Wednesday' thing the other evening. A shared information session about our TANKS, reefing, live stock 'perhaps a different species each week high lighted', health/first aid,,,yada yada yada... You;'re a genius!(y):cool:

There's a 'Sleepless Over....beneath the stars, including our own' forming up, with the first guests perhaps arriving momentarily. THERE BETTER BE DOUGHNUTS!

Yard is tidy'ied up, pool checked, and ear plugs handy....NO, for the noise!
So there may be a trip to the FEED ALL THEM store for supplies. :rolleyes: As per usual....."Nate, how many?"....."Ohhhhh, the usual.". Never knew 'usual' was a number? But guess that 'usually' rangers in the NONE to a LOT range...:unsure:..OK, we've learned to accommodate THAT.:cool:

Hack - it’s a shame that you and your family have such a boring life. Ha ha ha ha. NOT.
Since I failed hit reply 🤪 when I typed this couple hours ago, i’ll just add to it. I agree completely with your comment on Sanka. That Faile stuff only resembles coffee as far as it goes for color. You might as well melt a brown crayon in water. The decaf I offered is a far cry from that. Here’s an interesting factoid that I learned from my favorite local roaster. He said that if you make a pot of regular coffee, I let it stay in that pot for hours, it becomes less caffeinated. Did you know that?

Hack , I bet those boys would be happy with sodas and pizza. Well maybe toss in popcorn and chips and dips.

By the way, I really believe that my breakfast was just good for starters. I know you guys would want to have some kind of breakfast meat

I know I’ve mentioned my husband number of times, but I don’t think I have shared many photos of him. Here are two from a time when we had a Fourth of July pig pickin’ at the apartment complex where we lived. I think he was around 60 years old in these photos.

Is that You in the stripped bikini on the right.....NO, not Donald Duck, behind Him?

YOU MEAN all those years in the Navy, that stuff 'plopping' out of the urn that's been on for DAYS was decaffeinated? :unsure: :oops: It was sure 'DE' something.....I thought it was DElicious/DEcussting/DE......:ROFLMAO:
