Good evening, Kathy!

Fortunately, we are not in that area. Hot as Hades here, with the humidity to match. Very bad for the people in the southern part of this county.

Over thirty years ago, I lived in Richmond, VA. There was a major algae bloom on the James River in late summer and the city water was undrinkable. Several weeks of intolerable hardship. We had to go to water points around the area to get drinkable water from National Guard trucks. This was before the days of bottled watered. Perrier was around, but it was in glass bottles at the time. Some people went to the several popular springs in the area - the water there was tested and found to be heavily infected with e. coli.

Hate when that happens!

My style is basically “supermarket sweep”, but hubby’s style is to read every label of every item!

Aloha, Hawaii...((HUGS))...my co-worker’s kids are in Hilo for the summer and the oldest, a high school junior, is staying for the school year.

They went somewhere to visit, and were turned away because they weren’t wearing long pants. They had to go shopping.

Kinda like socks. LOL!

I have a prayer request. The man I have been “dating” for about 5 years was told in March that he has ms. This is a guy who has always been active. He played football at Auburn. I talked to him in May and had not heard from him since, until I got an email fom him today. He is really struggling with this and is real depressed. He is a retired psychologist so he knows about depression. I don’t know what I should do. I have invited him to come here but he has not made a decision. He does not need to be alone and dwell on this. The only time I have dwelt with depression was the weeks after my daughter and husband died but that only lasted a few weeks. Thanks.

Good evening, Marine...((HUGS)). Sounds like one of the IT guys. I asked him if he caught any fish on his trip.

He said, “Of course...I don’t go fishing, I go catching”.

Love, love watermelons.

I love watermelon too. I've noticed here in LA they now sell "watermelon filets" which is the inside of the watermelon without seeds. I love them!

Oops...I’ll have to get the Mods to fix it.

Work has been so busy today, and I’m still at it, I only had time to get the thread ready 5 minutes before posting and didn’t proofread.

So after you put two “p’s” in the word shopping, did you take the test?

Please Mr/Mrs/Ms Moderator, would you please be so kind as to correct the word shopping in the title? Thanks!!

Lil would have made a great FReeper.

My late Hubby Mike Trained her on Computers well back in the day before she went to Romania, and she was definitely “ONE OF US”, if you catch my drift.

If I am in Winn Dixie, I first head to the seafood section. They often have the large fresh shrimp 12-15 to a pound at half price. They are headless but have shells and are not deveined.

Those large ones are the only ones which are really any good.

I then go to the meat section to see if they have any New York Strip, Porterhouse, or Rib eye on special or day old. Their meat is far far better than Wal-Marts.

For staples which are in boxes, bags, jars, etc. Wal-Mart is really a lot cheaper. They are usually cheaper on dairy too. Wal-Mart is typically cheaper on frozen food although Winn-Dixie sometimes has sales which are better.

We grew them when I was growing up. We had the yellow ones, too. There is nothing better than going to the patch, picking out one, eat the best part and going to another one. I remember we did not have a good year one summer, so we bought them from a friend of my dad. They were 4 for $1. I was in MS last summer and there were some teens selling them on the square-—$7 each but they were huge. My brother and I bought 6 or 7. I was able to bring 2 home with me. My grandson makes fun of me and my watermelons. They know better than to get between a watermelon and me. When I was very young, people kept them in the freezer at the ice plant. Never figured out why they did not freeze. Really loved growing up in the country.

Good evening, Connie, and thanks for the tributes to our troops.

Texas is getting rain...how about AZ Land? Did you have a good commute?

Work is busy, busy...trying to do our regular work and test in the new system. This is not fun.

Almost ready to go home, with homework.

Yes Indeed.

One of my fondest memories was my Hubby Mike riding her on the back of his Harley, and all three of us riding the Blue Ridge Parkway, and then into the mountains of West Virginia.

She also gave me her Maltese Dog Odie when she went into the mission field. Odie became my riding partner and had his own box on the seat of my Superglide and his own leathers. I had him for 15 years before I got Torey, who preceded Lynn-DAH.

We are talking about a L-O-N-G friendship!
