Tuesday in Mayberry

Let me tell you, those ribs were good, good last night, and super easy.  Yes they were...but after smelling them cooking all day, I sorta didn't want any when it was finally time to eat.  I think next time I'll let them cook out on the deck.  I'll post the recipe on dyerdining when I get done here...and before I go empty the dishwasher.  I was mighty tired by bedtime last night, after being on my feet all day, so I didn't get that chore done.  I'm glad there was no deadline and no time clocks to punch.  Today is another day and another chance to finish what didn't get finished.  And then there is also tomorrow!

I feel sooo sorry for my fave Carnival cruise director John Heald.  There was a fire in the aft engine onboard the Carnival Splendor yesterday as they were en route from CA down to Mexico.  Everyone is OK, well, except for the idiots who will complain about everything.  They are never OK.  Carnival is compensating everyone quite handsomely, but still...John will be putting up with a lot of crappola from some, no doubt!

Right now as I type I am catching glimpses of Amy and Jason putzing in their front yard, with two happy boys playing.  There is only a small gap between the house and the trees, but it affords me a small window of opportunity to see my sweet neighbors enjoying life, and it puts a smile on my face.  I am mighty blessed.

Life is good!

I know poor John will be dealing with some opportunistic jerks. Bless his heart.

Living next door to the grands must be... well, grand!

Big hugs :]

I'll check for that recipe for sure. I do love ribs and it sounded so easy.

I hope all the folks on Splendor get home soon. You just have to roll with the punches and I know of these folks will. Some will be the clods they always are. Just saying. At least there was no loss of life and it doesn't sound like there were any injuries either. Great job if you ask me.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs from California. :)

Sometime tasks can wait... And I'm glad you had a time to peek at the kids...

As for John and everyone on the ship, I am with the majority in that you roll with the punches and make the best of the situation. Thank the guy above that there was no loss of life.
