Morning homies,
The sun is shining and it's starting to warm up a bit. I'll take it!

I hate shopping for clothes online so no new summer tops this year. Being short has its disadvantages.
I hear you, I'm short too. I don't like buying online either, but Old Navy was having a sale a few weeks ago on linen pants and I do like those a lot. They're sooo comfortable so I bought a few pairs. I now have to hem three pairs!
Hope got a second degree burn on her ankle and the bottom of her foot yesterday.
Oh I'm so sorry! But I'm glad to hear she's doing better and pray it heals quickly.
How`d you get a picture of my rum cabinet...….
LOL!!
Yep, give me someone with a weird sense of humour any day…….
I edited my post and took out the picture because I thought someone might take offense. It's all in good fun, but I don't want to put someone off.
So yeah, McK, I knew some would eat most of our wildlife. I am not fond of any game meat. My friend wanted me to have some of his deer chili, I was like not hungry, and don’t need it later. Nope.
We know a lot of people who hunt and eat game meat. I will eat venison if someone offers it to us, and we do fish, but it's more of my hubby's hobby so that's fine. I will usually try anything once, but I draw the line at squirrel. Someone offered it to us a while ago and I passed. Ick! I knew a woman from church one time who made a "beef" and vegetable soup for a potluck and never told anyone it was actually venison. People ate it like crazy, but I felt it was dishonest to not let people know what they were eating.

    I’ve been smelling my cinnamon rolls rise for last 45 minutes, drooling.

    Sorry, Mike...

    Struck me I may just have a better chance of seeing you before I see a minion.:bitelip:

    KF - ouch, for your DD. It happens to us all. If a kid gets through childhood without a scar they weren’t having a good time. Gave away my coffee tables after my oldest when a tot fell & wound up with a long gash that i was thankful was near vs on his eye.

    MR - oh no, I’ve had that happen when using it, works well for a day or two then I forget to reapply.

    such a strange world, when you realize many of us non-symptomatic types would hope for results to come back positive vs negative.

    Last I heard though, those who do have positive test are required to self-isolate for the 14 days.

    Was really surprised to learn there are only a handful of county health departments in PA & that tracking/ensuring compliance is overwhelming our State in some areas..

    Turducken actually turns my stomach...…..I remember the first time I saw one......not quite sure what it is about the dish as I like all the meats, just not together...….and the thought of vermin tucked together like that.......
    Lol for it it’s wondering why one would go to that much trouble. Along lines of a beer can chicken on grlll or making beef Wellington or baked Alaska.
    Oh no, hearing about Hope’s burns. Yeah my little one had many more doctor visits and two casts that older one never did. Kfish, I hope Hope heals fast. Accidents happen, and you are a great mom.
    my middle DS was the one with the most mishaps. Chalk it up to combo of activity & fearless levels.

    Good morning. For the first time in a long time I can say I am really bored at work. I am finally caught up on everything. I’m just counting the minutes until lunch.


    One of my kids had to get a covid test today.
    Praying for a negative result.

    I'm glad you don't have any issues with nursing homes.
    The ones near me seem to be okay, but one in Roanoke recently announced that they had 72 residents and staff members recover from the virus.

    Hope got a second degree burn on her ankle and the bottom of her foot yesterday. My flat iron had been turned on by my youngest son and I had no idea. Then she stepped on it. I felt horrible. But she is one tough nut. Today, you would never know she even was hurt. I wrapped her foot and got some cream prescribed by the doctor, but let me tell you, she hasn't slowed down at all. Kids are so much more resilient than us old folks...
    Ouch! Glad to hear that it wasn’t very traumatic for her and she is doing well.

    I hear you, I'm short too.
    Add me to the short club. I’m also overweight, so clothes shopping can be a nightmare.

    I’ve been smelling my cinnamon rolls rise for last 45 minutes, drooling.
    Now I want cinnamon rolls. I was running late and skipped breakfast.

    Gotta find something to do to keep me busy.

    I found out yesterday that a new cupcake place has opened up between home and the office. I need to go check it out.

    Yeah Keisha, she was and still pretty much is, over active and fearless. Home was her gym, and while I took her to gymnastics, a bounce off her bed when she was a tot, landed her on the very corner of her bookcase, and well, a night in the ER to get stitches in her chin. So, hang in there Kfish, there is always one kid that is fearless and over active.

    Yum, I wish I was in Keisha’s kitchen. I like those fresh cooked cinnamon buns. Nothing here of value. I had cereal for breakfast. There is a bit of milk left, so maybe pudding or more mashed taters.

    And count me in on the petite club. Even little one is taller than me. Sigh. And yes, on the tubby side, so finding clothes that fit is hard. I hate to order online for clothes, unless I have that piece and want another color.

    Wow, so many of us shorties! Out of curiosity, how tall are you? I'm 5'1"... used to be 5'2 but have been *shrinking* for a few years. My sister is only 4'11". All my kids are taller than me.

    Last I heard though, those who do have positive test are required to self-isolate for the 14 days.

    Was really surprised to learn there are only a handful of county health departments in PA & that tracking/ensuring compliance is overwhelming our State in some areas..
    I haven't heard of anyone here who tested positive and had follow up from the state to ensure they were complying. They could very well be doing it and I just haven't heard. The people we knew who had it were very sick and didn't leave their houses for more than 2 weeks because they were so sick and weak.

    I was reading a covid thread on here about people arriving from NY, NJ, CT, and LA who are required to isolate for 14 days on arrival in other states and how they are tracking those people in Florida. It's interesting how the procedure goes when flying down including filling out a questionnaire, where you are staying, how long you're staying, the phone number, your phone number and the National Guard following up with phone calls during your stay. I'm wondering when they will lift that required isolation for 14 days from those states, especially since things are opening in FL and people are planning to travel.

    mrose.....I forget the funny you deleted now??? I hear you though.....you never know who’s going to take offence these days.......I hate stuff.........

    I‘m 5’7.......is that classed as tall?? I used to be 5’8 when I started working in the explosives industry......blame the TNT for shrinking me......among other stuff.......lol.......I always wanted to be shorter when I was younger.....I was the second tallest in my class through senior school......but now, I’m glad of the height.


    I want to move in with Keisha for a long time!!! Her food is the best!!!

    Although can I admit two of my favourite dishes are beef Wellington and baked Alaska.......:rolleyes1:rolleyes1:rolleyes1 :rotfl:




    Charade........new muffin store.......gotta check it out........



    Lynne,,....I always pictured you as tall for some reason......not sure why. It’s funny you create a picture in your head how you think someone will be.........




    Been in the garden all day :sunny::sunny::sunny:......and we did give in to temptation and open a bottle of Chardonnay........yep.....too nice a day not to indulge.......

    Tom is firing up the barbecue as I type........just filled up my glass first though. It has been so gorgeous today.......almost 90F at one point.........

    Kyle has appeared out of the office.....his day is done work wise...so time to eat. Filet all cooked medium rare and spicy chicken kebabs.......few side dishes and we’re done.

    Will sit out later too as we really can’t pass up this warm weather......:flower1:

    Well I just checked the UK average and for a lady.....I’m tall apparently :thumbsup2.......I’ll take that.

    Also just measured all three of us out of curiosity, Tom is 6 foot exactly, Kyle is just 5”10 and I’m 5’8.....I haven’t shrunk as I’d thought.

    Definitely wouldn’t want to be 6 foot or over.

    Steak was delicious......cooked medium rare for all of us, and forgot to make pepper sauce, but I’ve been told this steak didn’t need sauce......no, I agree, no decent steak does, but Kyle and I do like a little to dip my steak in.

    Still sitting in garden........little breeze has arrived but it’s still so warm. It’s lovely. Sun is still shining on where we are sitting so will stay here till it disappears behind all the trees.

    Done absolutely nothing today and it’s been lovely........

    Barefooted I am 5’3”
    My shoes have a 1+3/4 heal so it adds height to me

    Had to find a tape measure to get those numbers...
    I always tell Mr Mac not to move my tape measure
    Does he listen to me about that..... :(
    You seem taller!! I thought you were 5’5ish........you’re a shorty too.......:p

    Janet was taller than I thought when I met her for the first time........I have the picture of all us at HHN a few years back......I like that picture....round by Simpson’s area. Can you believe that was 2016!!!!

    Keisha and Lynne are shorties next to me.​

    Anyone remember our poster Nashville trio?​
    I met up with her a few years ago as she moved to Orlando many years back.​

    You’re taller than Janet??? I always thought the opposite.......And I’ve stood beside you both.......lol.......

    I like being taller........but next to my two I’m a bit of a shrimp.....



    No plans for the rest of the evening......tomorrow is grocery pick up and think we’ll get to cook out again tomorrow. Hope so.

    Today, Sams club was akin to Saks 5th Ave vs WM yesterday :). Not that I need to purchase, but Had tons of paper products, dish & laundry soap, even disinfecting liquid. Still no Lysol spray to be found.

    Happily surprised they are still limited celebration cake orders. Not many choices currently; but no bakeries are open in the grocery stores here, let alone the stand-alone bakeries. Ordered kaiser roll buns too.

    Bought pre-formed frozen angus steak burgers for the party. No instructions on package, Never used that type of burger before, always form my own patties.

    are you supposed to just toss them on the gas grill frozen? Season pre or post?

    Did pick up some cheddar & sausage links & hot dogs; along with a huge watermelon. Lots of chips & snacks. Will make the knorr vegetable spinach dip & put out a veggie tray (along with lots of service tongs & spoons!)

    Now I want cinnamon rolls. I was running late and skipped breakfast.

    Mmmm cupcakes. I will say the rolls were over-the-top good. I ate, a few lol. deemed it breakfast and lunch

    Honolulu PD is arresting people who didn’t keep to the 14 day quarantine. Catching a few idiots posting pics & live streams on social media. Seriously, natural selection hasn’t weeded those dummies out yet? Lol

    In my parts, yes. I was tallest in my family, including my Dad.

    When i stand up straight for a picture I should be 5 ft 4 inches but, shamefully, i have awful posture. Was at one point 5 ft 5 inches but spinal issues caused less padding inbetween the discs.

    She is so nice. Haven’t seen her post for a bit. Bet her little boy is nearly graduated by now.

    Barb was the tallest, looked like a model.
    Yeah, when going through those HHN houses, I can hide behind all those tall people. 🙃
    Big & tall, ugh. I remember having to buy special sized pants for one of my boys when a kid before he hit puberty & shot up in stature. It always irritated me that Sears would slap a prominent HUSKY label on the pant’ waistband ala levi’s Tag. Way to body shame a boy.

    Yep, Keisha is taller than me. I think Charade and I are one of the shortest homies. I think I got the raw deal though, two of my brothers are 6 foot tall. Though my kids are both what I would say short, as DH is on the shorter side too. But do think older one is the tallest among my four person family.

    Well a combo of Chick Fil A and Sonic via kids were hungry after grocery shopping for me, and came home with chicken for me, burger for DH, and a share of fries, tater tots and onion rings. Good enough late lunch for us. And hmm, thinking ham tonight, but once again, hungry cries may not happen until closer to 6 tonight. It is nice out, hey maybe I can get DH to light the grill. And yay, may toast a piece of rye, as they picked up rye bread from one of the only few places I will get it from.
