I saw George Foreman interviewed on Fox the day before the game. He says Trump has been a long time good friend to him. He always had faith in him. He says he's working on inventing a special running shoe. WOW! Still love my Foreman Grill.
Do you remember the Doritos commercial with George and his little sons? They were all named George. What a hoot!

Love love the Mexican food plates! YUM! How appropriate was your sweatshirt to wear yesterday! Patriots logo! :)

It rained here yesterday and again today. We no longer have a drought! :)

Good morning. No snow here. Just more rain. Just enough to keep me inside. Maybe. It is, however, Absolutely delicious for our thirsty soils.

Snow or no- Your town looks charming. Your blog today makes me want to play Mexican mamma- but the National Day says I should be Italian. Decision. Decision.

Thank you for the birthday list- think I"ll "visit" one of the authors through their words.
