I've been up but figured Joe was going to start the thread soon.
Joe, hope you have a good day and evening. I love good Italian food.
Didn't know about the raccoon sex killing grass. Interesting.
Herring, hope you had a good time with son on his 49th.
Stars, good to hear there are some options on the horizon for you to get a break.
J22, "boring but tolerable" is better than intolerable I suppose.
Dianah, sounds like a nice evening.
We lost all our games last night in bowling, partly because I forgot my ball and had to bowl with a house ball and I bowled terrible. But my teammate bowled horrible too so at least I didn't drag us down.
Nothing much going on today. Hot yoga and a visit to best friend. He's out of his boot and told to wear sneakers instead and continue to try to bear weight. His doc is baffled why it's taking so long to heal and ordered some labs all of which were normal. But considering it was a spontaneous fracture without any trauma, it's no wonder it's taking so long. He had his 3rd MRI last night. He does seem to be getting better.
I had a dream best friend and I were in Australia boat riding and I got separated from the group. This is the first time in many years I don't have a trip on the horizon. Other than using $700 for insurance and things, I still have a nice "travel fund" built up from the canceled trip and more contributions. Just waiting on best friend's foot to heal.
