    I be having grandsons over today. Maybe the granddaughters too. We play in the back yard. Those little tykes can wear a grandpa out, I swear.

    Oh, that reminds me. When I hung Mr. Maryn's work pants, half the hems were frayed. He hates shopping so much I'm going to see if I can find identical pants online, so he doesn't have to--gasp!--enter a department store.

    Is he hard to fit? I'm a tall (big) guy so it's often hard to find casual clothes at a department store for me.

    What stores do you shop at online?

    I'm 6'4 and like the pants my wife gets from LL Bean. She also reports they're pretty good folks, besides.

    It's suppose to be unusually warm here (as the TV weather people keep telling us over and over). Around here people head to the pools, lakes, rivers, and water parks; or have cookouts; or attend a memory event; or work on the yard or garden; or just enjoy having an extra late spring day off.

    I'm about that tall too (just a fraction under). It's hard to find long rise pants in department stores even if they have my size.

    Hoorah Susie! I haven't so much as sold a cake yet.

    My wife is 5'2 by the way. Our son turned out to about 6 foot and our daughter, about 5'6. So we figure, between the two of us, we rebalanced the gene pool a bit.

    The UPS guy just left a delivery from Amazon. One of the items was a 14" deep dish pizza pan.

    What was I thinking? A 14" pizza pan is as big as a car wheel. I'll probably find a use for it, but probably not for pizza.

    Well, it was free anyway. I use an Amazon credit card and used my cash rewards.

    I guess I could roast a turkey in it.

    Or use it as a birdbath.

    Or a giant serving tray.

    Or a foot bath.

    What kind of cat are you?

    It's a napping surface.

    I know what I would have done with it as a kid. I would have taped a strap to it and turned it in to a silver shield. I would have become a gladiator fighting the vicious tigers in the backyard . . . if I could have gotten the cats to stand still long enough to fight, that is.

    Heard on the weather news today that the TV stations set their thermometers in the shade about 5 feet off the ground and claim that's the temperature. Okay, maybe for my eyes up to the top of my head.

    Just thought you ought to know why it feels hotter than the announcers say it is.

    In general I agree, but if a guy takes his girlfriend shopping he ought to take his wife shopping too.
