Well, here's my take from this afternoon's trip to Broadway Panhandler.  I can finally portion out my cookies in various sizes!  And I can make waffle cuts!

:)

-Once again.... THANK YOU!

Great kitchen utensils, DRJOSE!  Ice scream scoops are one of the best inventions ever!

DR LAURA - you are welcome.  Once the original series was syndicated for individual stations, I think they were edited into thirty minute segments.

Hmmm...  There is currently a slow drip, drip, drip in the downstairs bathroom  - "my"bathroom - here in the apartment.  And it seems to come and go according to the rain fall outside, so... Hmm... The landlady has been called.  In the meantime, we've placed a bucket on the floor and we've checked elsewhere in the apartment for any leaks and damp areas in the wall - and we've found nothing else.  So...  We shall see...

...And I guess we should check with our upstairs neighbors since there are four floors above the bathroom.  We were thinking it could have been from the pipe that runs to and from the washing machine, but since the flow of the drip does not seem to correspond to when the washer is running...  Again, we shall see...

Just a very quick post to let you all know that contrary to popular belief, the back of the plane did NOT fall off and I am not lost (a Lost reference) on some island someplace.  

There was a Bear but not one of the polar type.  More of the Iím so happy to see you but Iím so mad at you that Iím going to wag my tail and put my face in Mom lap not yours but donít you dare think of going anywhere again type of Bear.   ;D

I am, in fact, safe and sound in the home environment.

Good night, Ladys and Gems.  I will talk with you Dear people sometime tomorrow.  Afternoon.  Possibly evening.  Well, maybe Monday morning.  Errr, let's just make that sometime on Monday and call it square, Ok? :)

Nighters!

Did you try the dog treats on Bear yet, DR Danise?

Glad to know you made it back safe and sound.  Welcome home.

Hmmm... It appears that I got bit on my arm this afternoon while walking through the subway.  I don't like having a case of the itchies.

Can't anyone translate that Roumanian?  Remember how amusing it was when we translated the Russian tribute?

Had a marvy dinner and am now going to watch the new ABC Movie of the Week DVD.

LOL Jason, I would guess that none of us are pleased with our photographic image! My face always looks twisted, somehow, I don't know what the deal is.

Thanks for the lovely comments about Freddy...he is a fine feline and he sends his love to Walty and Kilbot...two other fine felines who I just realized I never got a photo of!!! Doggone it!

And despite what Jason may think of himself, he is a very cute guy with one killer smile!

Jose also has a killer smile...and a dirty mind...but that is another story.

Well our evening out was not all it was cracked up to be. After settling in to our seats up in the second balcony (!) the lights came down and the man walked onto the stage to announce that Bea Arthur was very ill and unable to perform tonight  :-\

In her 25 years of performing this show she has only missed one show...and now this is the second...I hope it is nothing really serious, however.

We were very disappointed (as were the other people in the theater...and it was packed) but decided to just head to dinner three blocks south at J. James, Salem's swankiest and fanciest restaurant. We arrived to find that the place was short staffed and they were turning people away as there was no one to serve them. Again we were disappointed, but not as disappointed as some of the others who were there and yelling at the poor girl who worked there.

So we treked back to the downtown core and at at McGraths. I had the Mango Tilapia.

James, Mark and Linda (Jame's mom) are now heading back to Wilsonville and she flies back to Nevada tomorrow.

One very good thing about this evening was getting to meet James' mom. She is great, and is a big movie fan...she has even seen ATTACK OF THE PUPPET PEOPLE...and ATTACK OF THE 50 FOOT WOMAN! She loves, loves, loves the old horror and sci-fi which she used to watch every Saturday at the movies when she was a kid! She said AOPP scared the bejesus out of her!

She picked out several DVDs from my collection that I am going to copy for her!

I'm still up. Why am I still up, you ask? I don't know is the only reply I can give. I'm currently watching "Bedknobs and Broomsticks," which has nearly ended, so bed (appropriately) won't be too far off.

Thank you, Shakalaka Barnum, for your kind sentiments. I suppose none of us would choose to sit and look at photos of ourselves. Still - that's one heck of a forehead that I've got! And I can tell I've slacked off on the situps.

Jose, when are we starting that food diary?

As it has been announced that tomorrow may be the day of the subway attacks, I have decided that I'm not going to risk anything as it is a day off and I have no reason for going into the City, thereby meaning I have no reason to board a train. I do have that dinner on the Upper West Side at 6:30, though... Hmmm...I'll keep you guys posted on whether or not I'll be able to attend. I do hope you all will understand if I don't make it up there. I'm low on cash and that's a heck of a train ride from Queens. But I may still show up - I haven't decided yet.

Copying DVDs, did you say? Gosh, I wish I had that ability, even if only to make back-up copies of the stuff I've already got. People borrow things and never return them...you know the sort. And it'd be nice to build my collection, too. Not that I would EVER consider doing that. ;)

Priscilla - I saw something on TV tonight about a murder case in Iowa. I kept looking to see if you'd be in the courthouse scenes. Then I realized there is probably more than one courthouse in the state of Iowa so I stopped looking. :) It was covering the Proleen or Preleen or something "-leen" murder case. The husband was the primary suspect and, even though 10 of the 12 jury members thought he most likely did it, they voted not guilty due to a lack of concrete evidence. Very interesting stuff...

Hmmm don't know that one.  I've really only done one murder trial. My client was 16 at the time. A group of kids kidnapped, beat and then shot another kid who was a big drug dealer.  I got a lesser included on the murder, but he still got life on the kidnapping. It was pretty gory, but it was fascinating to work on. I really don't think they intended to kill the kid, but apparently the jury disagreed with me and with the lawyers in the other cases that went to trial. No one walked.    

There aren't too many murder cases in federal court, mostly guns, drugs, aliens and internet porn with a little counterfeiting, telemarketing fraud, and other assorted misdeeds thrown in. But thanks for thinking of me!

And yes, there are actually 99 county courthouses in Iowa and at least 5 ot 6 federal courthouses, so there's a really good chance I wasn't there!
