They also make a condom type thing with a tube that empties into a bag that is strapped to your leg.

Jimmy, I was just watching Food Paradise on the Travel Channel. It is all about hot dogs. OMG! there is a place made out of two church buses. It is called Hillbilly Hotdogs. I thought I was going to die they looked so good. I am going to see if they have a menu on the net and get some ideas.

I wanted to make chili tonight but Cassie vetoed it. She wants tacos instead. She had chili at work last night.

yeah!......it's called an external catheter..He had one in rehab.
BTW.... I told Tina to throw a couple towels in the car so he can sit on.
She forgot....and guess what?... Tina put the car footwell mat on the seat.
And it's soaked. I have to wash it now!.... Boy, she really was smart doing that!

Found out why he peed so much. They ate at Red Lobster so he could get Salmon. He had Two Glasses of Wine. Ooops! Bad Choice. hahahahaha

Definitely not fun getting old.

I had fun today turning the tables on a solicitor who wanted to sell me solar panels and things. After they had gone through their talk I told them that would be fine but my fees could be pretty high. I charge people for working on my house. I got dead silence and then they hung up.

Tonight is leftover pasta salad and a tri tip steak. I have a cheater bbq pork butt in the slow cooker. I have it outside so it won't stink up the house.

My mother-in-law, who was very religious, wanted me to cook the wonderful fish that we had purchased on an old cookstove in her dungeon of a basement rather than in the kitchen. "I don't want the kitchen to smell like fish" was her excuse also. I said "Sorry, I won't do that, my mother told me many times about the days during the war when she had nothing to make for us to eat, so to me the fragrance of food in the house is a blessing."

She thought about that, and agreed, but I'm sure that after we left she did her fish in the dungeon. Now, making food outside in a smoker or grill is a whole different ballgame, and very, very good!

Food cooking is what it's all about in this house.

You should smell it when I burn the toast. ( My stomach cure all ) Everyone wakes up!

OMG, she drives 6 hours roundtrip just so he can see his house?! She truly has really taken the best of care of him for years. And now that she doesn't do the drive to fill up his freezer with meals, he STILL asks her to make the drive. She deserves a Mazola crown on her head (notice how I'm keeping the food reference? Laughing ).

I had to laugh, as you tell a funny story but I do feel for poor Tina! Bet that drive really takes it out of her, as she's not always feeling well.

I have a friend who is Italian. She grew up in the Bronx. They had two kitchens: one in the basement and one upstairs. They did most of their cooking in the basement. I don't know exactly why but maybe it is a cultural thing. She now has a new house with attached in-law suite. She does all of her cooking (which is as little as possible) in the in-law suite. Her regular kitchen is exposed to a great room and you see it immediately when you come in the door so she wants it to be clean all of the time. I have never cared for the open concept of kitchens either. I prefer the mess to be hidden.

Well, for one thing, a basement is a lot cooler than an upstairs kitchen, as far as the older house in the Bronx.  I'm always amazed how cool peoples' basements are in the summer near Cape Cod.

And I love open concept kitchens.  It would force me to keep it tidy.  We have what I call a country kitchen:  Our kitchen is in a big room that also encompasses the dining room.  The kitchen is separated from the dining room area by an island.  Though we (now Brian) keep it pretty clean, there are usually a few things we haven't put away, like the condiments we used the night or meal before, like a bottle of rice vinegar, some spices, a bottle of dry sherry and the like.  I have a difficult time bending (even when I just had the PH) so some of them go in a lower cabinet and Brian would die if he saw me bending to put something away down there, as I might fracture another vertebrae.  

He just came home with some wine (for me!) and a few necessities we needed from the grocery and not only can't I help bringing the groceries in from the car but he won't let me put them away either.  I just worry about him doing so much.  He will finish up his first week of a two-week radiation tomorrow, as they're doing radiation on the prostate cancer that's on the base of his spine.  Though he does have stenosis of the spine as well, I'm hoping the radiation will lessen some of his back pain and that he doesn't get any new side effects from this bout of radiation.  I just have to keep reminding him that the radiation makes one tired so he doesn't try to do more than he absolutely has to do...

Yep! She somehow goes into a second wind mode. I do not know how she does it. 3 hrs down and back 3 hours.... 1- 1/2 hr at the house, then taking him to lunch....back to the house, and then to the Township Tax Collector office on main street to get the 2013 and 2014 taxes he paid proof so it can freeze his taxes amount with the property tax. She was on her way home at 2:30, and got home at 5:45. Then we had to get him out of the car...hahahahaha and he was stiff as a board, and his legs would not move.
15 minutes later we got him in the bathroom to change his pissy pants. LOL

Today, is Tina's Aunts 93rd Birthday. She's in Rehab 1 hour away. Tina picked up Cup Cakes at Sams Club, and they sang and passed out cakes for the nurses and aides. She just got home, and is going to rest her pain.
Tomorrow we take her to the Gastro Doctor at 1:00. Thank God she is not bleeding anymore.

I grew up with the Cellar Kitchen too! LOL...
Mom did so much cooking and baking, all the mess was in the cellar. Oh! She had it fixed up cute, and there was the old kitchen set. It was red and gray with the chrome legs. We ate in the up stairs kitchen though.
On Sunday, it was a bucket brigade, carrying all the cooked food up the steps.
Hoofing it up and down those stairs only made me more hungry.

Oh, I wish I could go back in time!

The only thing I remember about the kitchens we had while I was growing up was that they were always awful and old. No dishwasher, no garbage disposer, a pink and then root beer brown fridge, worn through vinyl, electric stoves that were as old as the hills. We had one vinyl floor that was red with what looked like different colors of paint drops all over it. The fridge was on the back porch. Laundry chutes, a maid's room and bath, washer and dryer and a built-in ironing board. Somehow we had room for a mangle that would always give us a shock when we used it. My mother ironed the sheets and tablecloths with it.

Tina said, How about I go get Double Cheese Burgers for supper tonight?"
I said,"Yeah, and I could have Chili Cheese Burgers?"
Tina wanted a KFC Kids Meal for her.
McDonalds for the burgers.

I had two burgers with a splash of mustard, chili piled high, and minced onions. French fries and ketchup.

So, we cheated tonight, but it was fast, and filled the belly.
