Don't worry, Daniel. Your place is coming along great. I like the pics. My place is a 16 foot wide mobile home, but I go with what I can afford. It's the only way I can have money in the bank.

I must be part Indian. If you visit a res or see movies made on one you see lots of mobile homes.

I worry about Carl and Joan too. 

Bertold, I have gone to Chuck's a few times.  It's in traffic-hell on Mill Plain, and close to my former workplace.  I get PTSD driving past there so kind of avoid it.  I know, I should just get over it.

My kitchen, so to speak.  This was a month ago.

This was two weeks ago.  It now has drywall.  The plan is for a nice kitchen to retire into in 10 months.   I told the cabinet people I did NOT want to move walls or do drywall work, but they talked me into extending the wall for more room for stove and cabinet.  Then the electricians did their damage, and left me with the drywall work.  Which wore me down, but then while at it, I pulled out the mouse-eated insulation and replaced it, and the moldy old drywall is replaced with mold-resistant new drywall.

Well, now that I whined about it, here it is now.  I can only do a little bit at a time.  So it's taking a few months.  It's OK, we're not exactly into having people come over.

A little sanding to smooth the drywall compound - messy dusty - and a coat of primer, and it's ready for the cabinet installers.   Ning is chipping off the old floor.  Ning is doing most of the coordinating.  

When it's done, it will be more streamlined, more lighting for aging eyes, easier to keep clean for aging muscles, easier to organize for aging brain.  

Then back to baking some bread and pie, and cornbread and chili.

No.  I think he's only posted a couple of times since he started dialysis.  It IS time-consuming, tiring, and depressing for most people.  I do worry about him.  A LOT.

@ Daniel - Have you tried Chuck's Produce in Vancouver? Most of their prices are about the same as Whole Foods or New Seasons, but their fresh produce prices are amazing. They're selling honkin' big honey crisp apples for $1.39/pound.

Randy, have a great time.

Grilled cheese sandwiches now in the news.

I doubt the statistical significance about the libido part - 32% vs. 27% is almost never even slightly meaningful.  But this part is more intriguing -

The website said grilled cheese lovers also tend to be more charitable, with 81 percent of members reporting a love of the sandwiches saying they have donated time, money or food to those in need, compared to 66 percent of others.

I eat pretty healthy most of the time, but everyyyy now and then...I love me a good reuben sandwich. Anyone else love these? How do you make yours? I love the pastrami version. I know some like corn beef. :)

Randall, have a great trip - and a safe one also. If you get to England, grab a Cornish Pasty for me.

Heading off to Europe on the 9th. I'll try and remember some of the local foods and report back in two weeks.

Glad to hear the good news about the Senior Nutrition Program.

Comment by sk8eycat on April 4, 2015 at 8:47pm

Joan, I used to have muscles, but 40 years sitting behind a desk, and another 10 - 15 years of incredible sciatic pain have left me with "bird legs," gouty arthritis in my feet, and a bunch of other little aches and pains that add up to one BIG pain.  And I fall down maybe once a month if I move/turn around too fast.

The day and a half I spent outdoors looking for Pumpkin this past week didn't help at all, but the Senior Nutrition Program is the biggest help I've had in years.  The food IS pretty good, and more variety than I've had since I was cooking for two (Mother and me).  My sister is a vegetarian, and variety doesn't mean much to her, so she does her own cooking...and weighs close to 250 lbs. 

I have lost about 50 lbs in the last 3 years...but I still have dense bones.
