The final words were "Kiss the moose!" and they'd thrust the moose head toward the celebrant. If we went there on one of our birthdays, we'd keep shut about it ... we couldn't bear thinking about the "kiss the moose" germy-ness of that moose head!
It's very good - it's a steakhouse. It's similar to Outback or Longhorn, if you've ever been to either of those, but Texas Roadhouse is way better then either of those, in my opinion. I think it is worth trying if you ever great to!

Well everyone, now that I've had my afternoon commentary , I'm all caught up, so I am going to go make a cup of coffee, light a candle, and make a cake for my girlfriend's birthday.

I also need to get a gift together - just some things I bought today for a friend at work - she found out two weeks ago she has colon cancer and she had surgery today. I've know her my whole life. She's my mom's age, so it really hits home. She's a nurse with me. Keep her in your prayers. She did well in surgery. Praying everything continues to go well.

Talk to you all later. I will stop back in later on. Enjoy your evening!

LOL!!!! What I'm telling you is tame compared to what Snowflake has heard and what Snowflake has heard is tame compared to the things I've heard coming out of my friends mouth.

You'll get a cut, don't worry!!! I already have you cast as my friend's sister in the movie.

Good afternoon, MMC!

I hope this finds everyone well! I don't have time to catch up at this time as I have so much to do yet today.

This morning I took Mouse to the vet's - she either has a tooth problem or something much worse. I take her back on Wednesday. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers!

My basement is getting back to normal - the floor is still a mess, but it is to be expected as it is a "Michigan basement". With the area drying out, my phone started working again - that is why I am on here today. It is always something here.

I have several broccoli and acorn squash plants started - they are looking good. Today I started fennel, sage, rosemary and sweet baby peppers. I plan on having a really big garden - it is fun!

Time to get back to work.

Be safe and MERRY!!!

You can tell me more! I love hearing it! As I said, I love the drama! Plus, if I am going to be in this movie, I have to know the gossip!

We have one down the road from our house, we love it too!!

Awesome steaks!! I usually don't like steaks at chain restaurants, but these are really good cuts! And the bread & potatoes are out of this world, too! I could eat the fresh peanuts all day =]
