  1. IDK what we'll do for vacation this summer bc my wife has a new job, the parameters of which are quite vague in the summer.

  2. Sitting on the beach (#14) is indeed the best way to relax, grin. Have a beautiful day friend. smiles

  3. I don't know that I've ever had a Jersey tomato, but I do love all the produce we've ever bought on the DELMARVA peninsula. If Jersey beats those then, wow, those would be some amazing tomatoes!

    1. They beat them completely. You know we are a peninsula just right above and beside Delmarva.

  4. You live in a lovely area. Are those fried green tomatoes or do you fry ripe ones? I like fried green tomatoes.

    1. I love fried green tomatoes! But for breakfast I just fry up some ripe ones. I like tomatoes just about any way you can make them. I do like where I live but, I have always enjoyed every place I've lived or been to.


Please leave a short hello to tell me you were here! I love hearing from you. Thanks for visiting.
