Yesterday Maggs and I went to town. I had to pick up her meds so we weighed her at the vets. Lost another pound. Down to 56. That makes 12 pounds! She's eating chicken twice a day and dog cookies occasionally so she getting enough nourishment.

And yes, I even had on green socks!
We handed out St. Pat's earrings to several of the gals, at Ace and the Post Office. I gave some of the guys at Ace and at the market green St. Pat buttons since they had no green on! They claimed their underwear was green. HA! At the market I picked up two small corned beefs, cabbage, mushrooms, and mashed potatoes.

Buy one corned beef and get another free. Good deal!

Came home and cooked it all up....

.... and even made a 'cucumber martini'.
It was quite good, and green!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Friday.
