Almost, a New Year

Just read DD, saying he needs a break.   Gosh. I got there a few months ago.  But he has the flu, and thank God he's getting better.  Keep hearing swine flu is around down there.

It was kinda funny, when I went to the pain doc.  Came out into the lobby, and these 4 or 5 people were sitting there with masks on... I must have looked at them some way, because one lady volunteered that they were wearing them because of being there.  I just said, oh,, and went on but wondered,,,don't they go into groceries, stores, etc?  Maybe they wear them in those places too..  I just do a good hand washing.  And oh yeah.  Now they say all those antibacterial soaps are useless, and maybe even harmful.  I quit using those several years ago.  A good hand washing with any soap for 15 seconds is good enough.

After those shots on Thursday, I had NO PAIN, by that nite.  But, when I stretched to put my socks on Friday morning, I pulled the part of my upper leg where I had had the pain the worst, and now that was like I made it sore.  Today is the 3rd day, and it's doing really good.  Sitting here in this chair gets to bothering it, and I'm hoping that goes away.

I cooked some more of that chicken yesterday.  The one with the potatoes.  It's called lemon, garlic chicken.  It's so easy.. I use legs, my favorite.

I just use lemon juice, garlic powder, and regular potatoes, but the seasonings aren't to be beat.  I also didn't put in the green beans yesterday.
I have to make things that are quick, can't stand long, so this will be a regular.  I did 6 legs, with 4 potatoes, in a purex bowl in my toaster oven.  Had to cook a bit longer, but,,, worth it.
The handies came over Friday and pulled my refrigerator out (has wheels) and vacuumed the fan area, (filter) behind it.  In the process of rolling it back, it broke off an end of a filter that plugged into my copper line to the ice maker.  I just turned off the ice maker, til they can get whatever it is, to fix it.  Need that filter off anyway.  Was never able to find the refills for it.  I'm surprised water would still go thru it.  They were supposed to be back yesterday, but had to help some movers,,,lol,,,told you, they're the handies...
Yall tc, and


  1. UmmmUmmm... that chicken looks delicious! My daughter, who is a social worker and works with Alzheimers clients, says that they have to wear those masks around patients unless they've (the worker) had a flu shot. She gets a flu shot (she's barely 50)... but honestly, don't you wonder how much good they really do? (not the flu shot... the masks... well, heck, I wonder how much good the flu shots do, but that's another line of thought)

    1. This was just some ppl sitting in the lobby, waiting to see a doc.
      I get the flu shots, why not? lol, they might work.

  2. I bet I would feel better real quick if I could eat some of that chicken dish. Yum, Yum.

    1. Even YOU could cook that chicken, DD, its that easy..

  3. I was finally able to find those face masks at Dollar Tree. I feel better using them so that I do not pass my flu to someone else and likewise I do not pick up anything else.

    I wear mine everywhere even grocery stores. Walter does not like to see me with it, lol :D

    1. lolol,,, About Walter. I'm sure he doesn't.
