That is just crazy! Thank goodness she did not get sick. I hope you are already better. Stinkin hotel. You should call the management company and lodge a big complaint. who knows they may even give you your money back if you make a big enough hoopla but that is not the point they did not do the right thing they should have informed guests.

It's not often we hit 100 in Minnesota, but the heat index was 105 today. So, what did we do? We baked brownies, muffins, and cookies all day!

It's also a tradition to go out for ice cream on the coldest day of the year. One of those things that accidentally became a tradition.

Heat index hit a 105 here. CRAZY it's northern Michigan.

Then the air conditioner broke and on the same day the Dermatologist said the Grace has heat induced eczema.
We have to do all we can to keep her cool and dry from sweat.
Sooooo turned the sprinkler on and she had a ball.
Oh then my son tipped the sprinkler and it flooded our tent while I was trying to bake snacks for the farmers shaken the cherries. FUN TIMES. It's cool tonight. LOVE IT!

What Dexky????

I'm doing the snacks for the hard working farmers shaking the cherries. My MIL is doing their lunches.
In yesteryears, breakfast and dinners were also provided.

Is that what you meant or am I missing something???

No way! Please tell me you don't eat doughnuts and bacon together!

Now, if you think you may take offence at my story do not read on! Remember, it involves a priest and a banana.

So, many, many years ago when I was in twenties I had not a care in the world and my wickedness would run rampantly unchecked.

One day I decided it was time I went on another adventure so planned a trip around Australia.

One leg of that journey was a camping trip down through central Australia. There were about thirty us of varying ages and professions, all strangers thrown together for trip of a lifetime.

Hidden amongst us was a quiet, reflective sort of man in his early thirties. This piqued my interest, as it does, so I decided I would sit next to Dan one day and probe a little deeper into what he did for a living. Dan was standoffish and aloof, I do believe I denoted a touch of arrogance in his countenance and felt that was particularly unwarranted. He eventually acquiesced to my questions and told me he was a priest. I was somewhat shocked by this! Not that he was a priest so much but that he held himself above others.

Poor Dusty, she didn't understand. How could this cold and aloof man be a priest. Did he not have any feelings or compassion? So Dusty had a revelation, one might say, and she decided she would make it her mission to see if this man was capable of the sort of emotions we mortals felt. Dusty was also very irreverent.

It was a bright and sunny Winters day and we stopped to partake of some morning tea. As we stretched out under the canopy of glorious ghost gum I decided my particular fare that day would be a banana. As I was peeling the said fare I noticed Dan sitting a little way away watching me. He obviously did not notice that I had seen him as he continued to stare at me. I don't know what came over me but as I started to guide the banana toward my mouth and between my lips I stopped, I didn't take the bite that Dan was expecting but rather I started slipping the banana in and out of my mouth in a slow show of what one would call fellatio. I could see Dan was mesmerised and so the show lasted much longer than I had originally intended. He snapped out of it when I took a bite out of the said banana. As I finished my morning tea I idled over to Dan, he was very red in the face and I enquired after him...are you well Dan? You look a little...bothered. He couldn't speak and was bent over with his arms folded across his lap. I didn't know what to think but the only conclusion I could come to was that Dan was human after all.

St Dusty of Oz.

Don't knock the bacon and doughnuts until you've tried it. I even went to a wedding a couple of years ago and instead of wedding cake they had a tower of maple bacon doughnuts.

Dusty I think you read The Thorn Birds a few too many times...

We have to stop at vodoo donuts everytime we are in Portland. All I can say is once you've eaten one of those maple bacon donuts it haunts you and soon you will be dipping your bacon at home into maple syrup trying to replicate the taste to no avail.
Great now I'm going to be dreaming about those donuts - forget Krispy Kreme.
