    Buenos Dias Coffee Hosers. It is overcast and in the 60's presently. Now Buehler is on the disabled list. The Dodger dugout must look like a hospital ward. Yesterday, Gary had scheduled phone calls to four wineries so he can close out his memberships. Things got a little crazy so those those calls are rescheduled for today. He even has the phone numbers of the chosen wineries written down. Gary has way too many memberships.

    Approximately 5.5 hours today and 14.43 for the week so far. There was something on aisle 4 that the buffer wouldn't touch.
    Fabuloso and a mop fixed it.
    The floor machine hadn't been worked on yet but it got through the whole store.
    I belong to roughly 5 sites. But that's it as far as memberships go.
    Chicken Tenders just about gone.
    Some good deals this week. Gonna take some stuff home fer sure.

    With matinee pricing + senior discount for DW and myself, the tickets were a minor part of the total cost. I'd thought about the movie pass, but I thought I heard from somewhere (maybe you) that it might be going by the wayside?

    We generally just do a few short trips during the summer because of the heat. Will head to the N. GA mountains in a couple of weeks if all goes well. We were there last summer and had a good time. Panned for gold while we were there, found enough to make it worthwhile and definitely make it a repeat.

    Parts of Georgia are pretty nice.
    But you can stick Atlanta where the Sun doesn't shine.

    They're having some ups and downs, but if you buy the pass through Costco, (assuming you're a member), then if they go bust then Costco will reimburse the cost of Movie Pass..

    Nice to see you on here Paul!

    Now wait, Leo and Charlie are going to Montreal and Columbus - and hockey season is done!! Well, not that it's ever completely done, there are all kinds of camps and unofficial tournaments (captains' practices), etc. Montreal seems like it would be a cool place to go visit (when the Habs are playing, or even just practicing, or holding training camp).

    When you go to Columbus if you're by chance at the convention center, across High St. next to the Hampton is a small street that goes directly into the North Market parking lot - try the place run by a guy who's Polish or Hungarian I think, that's the best darn chicken I think I've ever had. Even the sauerkraut balls were good, and I don't even like sauerkraut. And The Fish Guys... their bisque, crab cakes & fish cakes, oh my. Or Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, they are splendid!! and in many unusual flavors (of the 'boozy' ones I like whiskey pecan). I'd usually take a small cooler along anytime I went to a conference (if I was lucky, catch a hockey game too).

    Now I'm going to have to go do a Jeni's order...

    As I noted in another post... 6 funerals, 3 cancer diagnosis (and subsequent operations - not me, but close family members), 3 hospital trips for my 95-year old mom, and a new grandchild.... keeps one focused on the here and now. Thanks for the welcome back.

    I caught "Solo" on opening weekend. The ticket price wasn't bad, but the beers, burger, chopped cobb salad, the snacks added up quickly.

    Wasn't quite the story line I envisioned for Han, but I still liked it.
