    Good morning, Vagabonds.


    A Happy Sunday to everyone, whatever you plan to do.


    Today’s forecast is for the mid 80’s and 20% chance of rain. I think the % just went up to 100 because it is raining as we speak. Memorial day should be dry and about 90. Good day for a barbecue.


    We went out to the Macaroni Grill for dinner last night. We had a really great waiter who was friendly and attentive. Food was fabulous, especially the prosciutto and mozzarella appetizer with a yummy marinara sauce. (thank heavens for spell check!)

    Lynn’s Notes:


    Counting to three is a joke. Really. When kids hear you count to three, they, naturally, watch to see what comes afterwards. DUHHHH…We bozo adults are then left to find some nebulous consequence. This is such a dumb thing to instigate. So, why is it that we all do it? … All of us! All the time!!!

    When a discipline routine has been established, parents rarely switch it for something else for a second (or third) child just because she is a girl. We may not have seen Elizabeth spanked “onscreen”, but, given Elly’s temperament, you can bet she was.

    Good morning, Vagabonds.


    Rita, congratulations!!! I am so glad that you have recovered so well.


    Our local farmer’s market is on Thursday mornings, and I somehow just cannot seem to remember it. The only times I get over there is if I pass by while doing something else.


    We got a little rain yesterday, about 4 spritzes – nothing that even stayed wet. Today should be in the mid to high 70’s.


    Have a great Saturday everyone.

    I remember being backstage at the Ringling Bros circus years ago. We sat on a crate watching the performers warm up and line up for entrances. That is, until the elephants came in and lined up waiting for the start of their routine. I found myself sitting directly beneath the “back end” of one of the elephants. I moved out of the way until she went into the arena.

    If they live in a typical tract neighborhood, then the Patterson’s house and the Enjo’s house probably have similar floor plans. We know the Patterson’s house has 3 bedrooms (they added a fourth for April later) and a basement big enough for John’s workshop, so the Connie/Enjo house is probably similar. Besides, they wouldn’t move into a house where Brian and Dawn had to share a room.

    Good morning, Vagabonds.


    Rita, check out my last post yesterday for that brownie baking pan.


    Michael goes for his scans today and we should know the results next week.


    The weather should be in the mid-70’s today. A 30% chance of rain is forecast, but honestly it looked more threatening yesterday than it does this morning. I think I’ll go for a walk.

    Phantom Given how long the Phantom stories usually are, I predict that Guran will lose his position temporarily, and will regain it at the conclusion of the story.
    Mandrake I have heard of plastic guns made with a 3-D printer. They are usually only good for one or two shots (and the second shot risks the gun exploding in one’s hand), and would never have a silencer. The “packing” inside of a silencer would not replicate in a 3-D generated copy. So, perhaps Mandrake is telling a white lie to prevent panic on an airplane.
    Rex Morgan Principal Joe Hallman was also introduced in 2011, back when Kelly looked like a goth princess. By the way, June announced her pregnancy while she and Rex were in San Diego on December 27, 2012. So we’re going on 2 1/2 years gestation so far. Arye wondered at the time how long the pregnancy would last in real time, but no one had any guesses.

    Rita, it’s called a “Baker’s Edge Nonstick Edge Brownie Pan”, and you can find it on the Baker’s Edge website (http://www.bakersedge.com) for $35.95. There are several other sites that have it for $1 less. (Amazon has it for $99, but why would I pay that much?)

    In my brother’s family of nine children, that’s exactly what happened. The “tattler” would get the same punishment as the original offender. It sure kept the tattle-tale under control.
