Good afternoon,

It has been one heck of a day so far, I won't go into details, but my kids are disgusting! Some of my decorations are still out, I think I am getting old, my body doesn't recover as quick as it use to after a hectic busy day. I am so sore and exhausted. I probably won't be watching the Super Bowl later, so we will probably watch The Dark Knight Rises or something like that. I have watched a lot of hockey lately, so I will let my wife pick something, lots of brownie points giving the wife the remote control during the Super Bowl.

I hope you all enjoy your Super Sunday!

If not, I got your back; I have several. In fact, one of them came from Telly Savalas. My SIL's sister married into the family and SIL brought some back to ECU after the wedding. That was the first time I had any. And I have been making it ever since. Sooo good!

well, got to get a cake baked for tomorrow, so be back later!

Have a wonderful Sunday, Star !! xoxo

Every year after New Year's Day as I walk around the neighborhood with our dog, I look to see how many houses still have their Christmas decorations up. (A very fun thing to do!)

As of the end of January, I'm pleased to report there were still 12 houses (out of about 80 total in the neighborhood) that still had their decorations up!
(This morning, we are down to 11.)
