    Lots been happening - debriefing will occur before and during chow call at 9:30 am

    Brought Skidmark home this afternoon, he wants to attend - we'll see how he feels in the morning.

    Don will absent. He should be moved to a regular room by tomorrow, may be up for a short visit.

    Phillip Puckett retired, giving Republicans a majority in the senate. We have a budget for Bloomberg's our governor to consider.

    Eric Cantor was trounced in the primary - never under estimate the power of the people.

    Congratulations!

    Whereas I refuse to go to IHOP with Gr8Legs, needless to say, I will be in the Dog House for quite a while.

    I will be there since Peter can't so people have a target to talk about when we are n0ot talking about those that are not in attendance. I tried to explain to her that this was a sacred duty that I couldn't pass on but she will have none of it.

    I just hope we have a better crowd than last week. We had so many people to talk about that I had to leave before we were done.

    ;>) PS: You forgot to email me the password and sign.

    va_tazdad complained when he saw Logan had been given crayons, so we asked for some for him too. He even managed to keep within the lines when coloring

    But after years of practice, I have mastered the art of staying within the lines. ;>)

    Was this an IHOP you had te breakfast at? (The original post read 'IHOPS' so I wanted to be sure.) Reason for asking is that the closest one of those to my house over here in Cincyland has a big old gunbuster sign on the glass next to the front door. Been told the others in my region are sign free but not sure that's accurate.

    Anyhow, all this makes me wonder if the restaurants are all corporate owned or are some franchised?
