In Chicago I saw a sign for Donut Doctor - are you familar with this Jose?

Umm.... DUH! ;D

In fact, it's surprisingly well known not only for it's donuts, but also for it's coffee (and legal(?) gambling games.

And DR Jose never once complained about the constant stream of Hindi and Arabic pop music coming out of my car speakers!  :)

Well, DR MBarnum, there were other things to complain about. ;D

I also got pictures!!  I got a picture taken of me with Janis and I got pictures of Cheryl (by herself) and another of Tim and Alan (who was also the original Teen Angel in Grease! on Broadway) with a woman named Gretchen, who was in The Fleetwoods.  I think that she lives in the area.  I also saw a couple of friends that I haven't seen in quite a while! 

However, I left my memory card reader at work, so I can't post the pictures, yet. :(

That's wonderful you got to meet them.  Looking forward to seeing your pictures!

Ditto!

The Manhattan Transfer is one group that I've always wanted to see live and in person, but somehow, I'm either busy when they're in town or something else comes up. However, I have seen almost all of them on solo outings, including original member, Laurel Massé - as DR George knows. ;)

Oh....

And while I was in line at Voodoo Doughnut this morning, an 8-year old boy asked, “Mom, what’s Cock-n-Balls?” -That was followed by a stunned and knowing silence from the Mom, and giggles from everyone else in line.

Oh...

And after I left Voodoo Doughnut, I ended up biking around(?) the Willamette River. Due to some of the wonderful public art along the Esplanades, I ended up zig-zagging quite a bit. Consequently, what should have only been a 1.3 mile ride back to my hotel, took 14 miles. :)

And now I should get ready for lunch with my friend and classmate, Amanda, which is to be followed by a libation with my friend, Bob, which will then be followed by dinner with a mystery guest. ;)

Sunday afternoon greetings!  Richard drove all the way home from Lima, because I was too dozey to drive while he napped.  I had some lunch and finally (I hope) solved the sign in problem I was having on my iPhone.  All is well in the App Store and the iTunes Store.

Well... You could have always blamed me, DR Ginny.

Hey, leave me out of this - I don't like guacamole!

Just got the Blu-ray of AIRPORT and what a great picture! Such a huge improvement over the DVD which really makes it worthwhile. It's not exactly a great movie - it seemed dated even in 1970 - but it's extremely entertaining. And as I love travelling I enjoy films set in airports. The UK disc has no less than 20 different sub-title options!

That's sounds like a cock and bull story. (It doesn't; I just like using the phrase.)  ;)

Well, one of us has been to Vienna, one of us is touring the west coast, and tomorrow I'm going to - wait for it - Fort Wayne, Indiana!  My sister is going to be there working on family history and I'm going to spend some time with her.  It's just a little getaway - I'll be back on Wednesday.

For DR Ginny!



This was the guacamole that the kitchen served up yesterday during the book signing, which went fairly well. I guess. I've never done one from behind the table. We sold more than 20 copies. And the guacamole was pretty terrific.
