It was cold this morning! We are talking about serious cold for the Los Angeles area!!
Did You Know? It is often stated that the phrase originated from the use of a brass tray, called a “monkey”, to hold cannonballs on warships in the 16th to 18th centuries.

Today at 4:03 PM is become officially “old” but I sure do NOt feel that way! OK, start the day!
Colleen dropped by at 8:30 AM and we went to appointment #1 which was a bust, the doctor decided he wanted someone else to see us. Reschedule until tomorrow! Then, because Sue’s back was so bad, I decided to go see our Nurse Practitioner which was great as Sue got a pain shot. That really helped but alas, it is short term!
We came home and rested a bit before going to the Yucatan Grill with Hannah and Lisa plus Colleen. Loads of fun again as the girls all jabbered while I sat there stoically!
After lunch, we went home and rested for a while before heading out to Downtown Disneyland for our traditional Catal dinner. Seven of us again just cajoled and jabbered for another couple of hours. I love how the daughters get along so well, it is a pleasure to sit back and watch.
Arriving home, we watched one “Royal Pain” and then off to la la land! No tookies tonight, the tummies are full!
