Thanks for remembering.  

 

Unfortunately,  we got a late start & on a tight timeliness so we had to pass. 

 

Next time.

No  problem, on that next road trip save time for the Virginia Safari Park. Even if you just do the drive thru it is well worth it seeing all the different kinds of animals they have and being so close to them is amazing.... Some the Caverns are nearby to that too.

Natural Bridge, Va.  is a must see also.

So how far North did you get tonight before resting for the night?

 

In Bristol, Va..........did you get a chance to see the New "Hard Rock Casino"? Just opened last month.(July)

There is a restaurant in the Hamptons where you can order Sticky Toffee Pudding and quite a few in Manhattan.

Explanation of this picture.  I had opened the top drawer a few inches.  When I turned back to the chest, Diana, who had been on top, was nowhere to be seen.  I looked more closely and she had crawled in the top drawer, open only a few inches, and had used that empty space at the back of the top drawer to drop down into the second drawer!  I had to take out the top drawer to give her the space to come out…although she was probably capable of contorting herself in reverse to go back up and out…

Our 13 year old grandson has been playing the flute in the school band for 3 years.  Both he and our 11 year old grandson, William, who played the trumpet this past year, participated in the Band Enrichment Program camp one day a week for the past 6 weeks, which culminated in a concert for parents and grandparents this morning.  Ryan, the 13 year old, decided he wanted to start playing the clarinet, and did so well, that on the second week of band, he was approached and asked to join the High School Marching Band.  He has been practicing with the Marching Band for the past two weeks now, and will begin Marching Band Camp all of next week.   He will be entering 8th grade next month.  The Jr. High band teacher asked Ryan if he'd play the trumpet for his school band, and he readily agreed.  Ryan left the school after today's concert, carrying his clarinet, as well as the trumpet the teacher lent him.  He amazes me!  I hear him playing the trumpet right now, even as I'm sitting here writing to you.

That's awesome.   What an honor to be invited to join HS band at 13 yrs old.   Congratulations to both if them.  Their Nana has a lot to brag about💕

Is Sticky Toffee Pudding the same as Sticky Date Pudding?  Sticky Date is my DH’s favourite dessert.  He will always choose it when it’s on the dessert menu here.

After picking all those peppers today I concluded I needed to start enjoying jalapenos.   I usually just give e them away.  So for the 1st time I made bacon Jalapeno poppers.  I have come to the conclusion that you  can't overdo bacon!

That warns my heart hearing about Ryan. As a musician my whole life even being a professional I can’t tell you how important music is to a child’s development, education and intellect. Studies have proven that kids that learn a musical instrument do better in school, have more discipline and have great life skills. I know you are proud of him. I know I am. It’s hard to learn an instrument and get good at it. Tell him congratulations from one musician to another.

Did you add any cream cheese? Jalapeño Cheese Poppers are my favorite.

I actually have enough to share with both you and OB.  The original plan was to share them with 3 others and now I am here eating them alone.  After getting a call that there was a change in plans I threw 5 in the oven quickly so Sharon could take some to my SIL. My DD was not going to be allowed to eat any tonight.
