Happy Mothers Day to all of you "mothers" out there. Hope the day is exceptional for you all! The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) is still sleeping at the moment. The "critters" and I decided to be very, very quiet this morning, and allow her to sleep in for a change. She seems to be enjoying the change.
Not too much going on around here today. Vita is researching a Med Cruise to be taken with one of her sisters, and a niece who decided she also wants to go. I've been there, and done that, and I think it'd be great fun for the "girls" to take this one alone.
Once again, HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to y'all!

Good morning everyone and a special good morning to all Moms.
We are in the process of getting ready to go to the movies with the grandkids. Last night we had our Mother's Day with the family at Fogo De Chao. It is a Brazilian churrascaria and we definitely ate our fill of meats. It took me back to Moderno on Epic. The meat is definitely better at Fogo but the salad bar at Moderno, while smaller, was certainly better. No matter what we had a WONDERFUL time and everyone enjoyed themselves.
The grandkids wanted to spend the night at Grandma and Grandpa's so their Mom agreed and thought that sleeping in on Mother's Day would be a great gift. So we are all meeting at the theater in an hour, enjoy the movie, and then my daughter and the kids are going horseback riding. Betty and I are heading over to my nephew's. My brother is starting his summer relocation from Phoenix and is staying at my nephew's until his home is "de-winterized". We'll have a BBQ over there.
I hope everyone has a great Mother's Day and enjoys the day no matter what you do.

I swear I was going to write as my first sentence (Happy Mother's Day to all of you mothers out there and then...........). So let me re-phrase that to, "Happy Mother's Day to all of the Moms out there!"
It's a bit of a maudlin day for me for the obvious reasons but at least it's sunny and warm. I'm frixing a 9.5 pound Choice Bottom Round roast ($3.99 a pound) with home made gravy to take out to our Animal Adoption Center. Thankfully, another Board member and extremely good friend is fixing the sides. I admit I bought an almost fifteen pounder but had the rump end cut off and made sure it was totally untrimmed (meaning a thick junk of fat on it). That is now ensconced in my freezer for later in the week! I mean c'mon, I think I need to get something out of this too since I'm the guy spending the money.
Hope everyone has an absolutely marvelous day, especially all of the mothers and even mothers-to-be.
Of course as always, prayers and a request for Blessings upon all continue every night.
