    I liked the Ziva epsiode. :) N I love the Short Little Ninja too. :) She's the reason I started watchin. :) I weren't plannin on watchin the first episode, but Wendy taped it fer me, n I left it runnin. She had me grinnin afore the first half hour was up. LOL

    Did Kevin like the Ziva episode? :)

    I told Rachel about Kevin wantin soup acause a her soup, n she's a grinnin like a baboon. :)

    Samson's out in the barn again, with Toes. :) N KK is a runnin fer is life again, with Bob after im. :) He don't got to run quite so fast when it's Bob a chasin im, acause Bob's belly a swingin back n forth slows im down some. LOL N what's even funnier is, KK didn't mean to pounce on Bob's head. LOL Bob was playin with a mousey in fronta the couch, n KK jump up n over the back a the couch, n landed right on Bob. LOL

    N it's right good news that ya could go out with Kevin. :)

    N I'm right sorry to hear about yer computer givin ya severe eye strain. :( The same kinda thing happened to me after I hurt my back. I weren't able to do much a anything, so I was a sittin at the computer fer ten or 12 hours a day, purty near every day. After a couple a months, I started gittin bad headaches, n then I started gittin nausea, n then we had to shut off our internet, n I stopped sittin at the computer, n my headaches n all went away. :) N I didn't git back on it at all fer a couple a months, n when I did, it didn't bother me none. :) N thinkin on it, I'm a wonderin iffen Brenda didn't cancel the internet so's I'd git offen the computer. :)

    Yer welcome whenever yer able to come around, my friend. :) I'll keep a chair open fer ya. :)

    N Belated Happy Birthday, Granni. :)

    I'll talk to ya tomorrow, my friend. :)

    Too much has been going n here lately. Sorry I haeny been ablae to check in on you al.

    First we had company for almost a week and then ff to daughtrs for a weekend in Crowley, a suburb of Ft. Worth. We had a nice time and I got to eat at a nice winery/restaurant for an early birthday dinner. We also had a nice visit.

    Before that our computer died. Our son said it was a lost cause and so we may be buying a new laptop this weekend when Window's 7 comes out. We are using our son's x tra laptop now til we get something new.

    Also, when we woke up this morning we found out that someoe has been usin and trying to use my Master card number. We think it was at a Mickey D's on the way to and from our daughters. To make a very long story short we canceled all my cards or most cuase we weren't sure t first which card it was. Then we found out and canceled it. What a major pain the butt. That was the first time that wehad even used a CC for Mickey D's. It will most likely be the last too.

    I just noticed that Jerry started a new thread. So, here I am. I have to check on Cody the cat later. Glad you started a new one as it was taking forever to download already :) !!

    How cold is it by you Jerry?????. it sounds awfully cold.

    Thanks fr the belated birthday wishes both of you, Sounds like you are both busily coking again . IT is starting to get chilly again around here but probably like summer to you both :) !! It was 40's and 50's in the morning i think. Bye for now. I hae to go and start an early supper as I have chorale practice tonight.

    Hugs to you awl,

    I'm still stuck feelin decent. :)

    Granni, I'm makin wood picture frames fer the picture with the poem Diane sent Rachel n Walter fer their weddin. :) I just finished makin a wood frame fer their weddin picture. I carved roses on that frame, acause Rachel likes em. :)

    Diane, how'd ya like Gibbs? I just about had an accident when Ziva got Tony with that drink that turned his teeth blue. LOL N I specially liked the Short Little Ninja last night. :) The way she was talkin to the feller with the comic book had me laughin so hard, I just about fell outta my chair. :)

    Glad to see that both of you seem to be doing pretty well as wel as all the kitties and Sally.

    Both of your profile pics are really funny. I saw DIANES yesterday and yours JERRY today. Luckily, I to didn't have anything in my mouth too !!

    Jerry - Gee you surely are talented, making beautiful rocking chares and carving on the wooden frames and all. How long have you been working with wood making all these things? They are beautful and will last a lifetime, and then some. If yu can some day please post se of your work. Wd woud love to see it. Some of our friends on the Porch are also artistic and they have posted their art and such at times.

    There you go again not wearing your slickers and water proof floor covers I sent you and having to clean up yourself as well as your surrundings after looking at Dianes' bio pic again..

    Hope it warms up some for you both. The rrain is supposed to come in late today they said and tomorrow to.

    Diane - do you always have to make yourself separate suppers. Gee, that must take alot of time (sometimes anyway). I know that you have allergies, sensitivities or whatever you want to call it and have to be very careful and Kevin needs a low to no salt diet. That is pretty hard in itself, the low salt thing. Ii have that too. However, I just don't salt anythign but Ikow almost eveything is loaded with salt.

    Glad you are both doing pretty good. I need to get outta here and fold some wash before fixing a quick supper. I have choir practice tonight. Hope it is not pouring at that time.

    Bye for now.

    Hugs to you both, (and some pets and scratchies to all the critters too)

    I been enjoyin bein able to go out to the barn n enjoy the warm. :) N it's nice to have a chance to sit on the porch n enjoy a cup a coffee without a coat. :) I'm a gonna miss that once the cold settles in fer the winter. :)

    N now ya got me wantin a Chai tea. :)

    Belly used to jump up on the back a my chair when he was a kitten. :) I'd be sittin there, a doin the books, n he'd jump up there n make me jump. :) They was more'n one page in my ledgers that'd have a line across the page acause he made me jump while I was a writin. LOL

    I hope Kevin likes his fish, n I hope ya enjoy yer supper, too. :)

    GreenOnions New Member

    I'll git ya to spit, sooner or later. :)

    It sounds like yer fridge keeps stuff right cold. :) When I wanna thaw somethin fer supper the next day, I take it outta the fridge in the mornin, n put it in a bowl, n sit it in a cupboard, where the kitty crew can't git to it. :) Or I sit it under runnin water. :)

    Ya oughtta make Kevin cook is own fish. :) Then ya could rest, n maybe pet cute little Tabeet. :)

    Y'all have a good evenin, my friend, n I'll talk to ya tomorrow. :)

    Did ya see Law n Order last night? I just about laughed myself silly when Elliot got kicked. LOL

    Wendy must be checkin out the board from her phone, acause I got an email from her with the recipe fer Sjömansbiff. :) I reckon the name means Sailor's Steak. :)

    1 1/4 lb. boneless round steak, in 8 slices
    1 1/4 lb. medium potatoes
    2 medium onions
    2 Tbsp butter
    2 tsp salt
    white pepper
    1 1/4 - 2 c water or beer
    1 bay leaf
    1 sprig thyme
    chopped parsley

    Trim meat of any fat. Pound slices lightly to tenderize and flatten.

    Peel and cut potatoes into thick slices.

    In a large skillet, melt 1 Tbsp butter. Add onion, sauté until browned. Remove and set aside.

    Add beef to skillet, and brown on both sides. Season with salt and white pepper to taste.

    Add water or beer, bay leaf, and thyme. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 10 minutes.

    Preheat oven to 250°F. In a baking dish, layer potato slices, meat, and onion - begin and end with a layer of potatoes. Add liquid to the level of the top layer. Cover and bake 1 to 1 1/2 hours, until meat is tender.

    Garnish with chopped parsley.

    A course, she used water yesterday. :)

    It sounds like ya had a safe supper. :) How many pieces a fish did Kevin lose to thwe kitties? :)

    I like SVU, but I don't genrly git to see all a it. :) I genrly head off to bed by 9:30. :) I stay up till 10:00 fer the short little ninja, n I might have to go back to stayin up fer SVU. :) I was surprised to see Alex back. I guess Sonya is in rehab. :) I liked Sonya well enuff, but I hope they keep Alex. :)

    Gee, it sounds like yu've been busy cooking again. That recipe sounds good Jerry

    Unfortunately, I do not have our new computer yet and the printer is not hooked up to the printer. Have to wait till we 'll probably buy our new one probably on saturday and DS will be hooking it up and putting n the olds stuff o it from the old one that just crashed. We went to Best Buy this morning to check them out.

    We went this moring to Best Buy to look around since they had the new computers all hooked up to the new Windows 7. We may be buying a Toshiba with the larger screen. Maybe that will help my eyes to see everything better. My eyes are really going down. I used to be able to see everything closeup but now it is getting awful. have to use cheaters alot when reading and doing close work. So, we will see tomorrow or saturday.

    I hope to print out that newsest recipe , beef stew or whatever you call it. I am to lazy ot just write it down.

    Diane - sorry you had tripuble sleeping last night or getting to sleep. Hpe you do better tonight ! I know the feeling, believe me.

    Jerry - What is that recipe you were talking about that Wendy was making.? Poor Wendy, I dont blame the poor gal seeing a live mouse. Our old cat when I was a kid used to d the same thing with mom. he wuld bring her lovely presents like dead mice, and other critters.

    Well awl, I gotta run and start fixing dinner - pork chops and baked potatoes. Tomorrow i will be at the doctors open to check my surgery and hopefull dismiss me. That will be a good is getting cahillier today after the rain. However, it is alot warmer than you I am sure.

    Gee, those kitties have it hard just enjoying the sun by the windows ! What is the temperature at your places, Jerry and Diane??

    More later on.

    Hugs to awl,

    Iffen ya'd like, I can ship a couple a live mouseys up to yer place, fer Faith n Tabeet. :)

    I ain't sure which is which, but I'm smellin ham n shrimp both. :) Wendy's a callin, so I reckon as I'm a gonna find out. :)

    Y'all have yerself a right good evenin, n I'll talk to ya tomorrow, my friend. :) Let me know about sendin them mouseys. LOL

    1 recipe rich short pastry (Mördeg)
    8 oz. smoked ham, cubed
    6 egg yolks
    1 c sour cream

    Set oven to 350°F.

    Combine egg yolks, sour cream, ham, and cheese. Pour over dough, like a pizza.

    *You can use any cheese you like.
