So . . . the weekend has come and gone. Gary was on call, so we spent Friday night and Sunday at "Chez Trauma". Luckily it was pretty quiet - no little ghosts and ghouls getting run down while looking for candy. And we got to watch both the Eagles-Ravens and Steelers-Patriots games. The Eagles managed another not-pretty win, and the Steelers defeated the heretofore undefeated Patriots. The Eagles are now 7-0 on the season and are playing the Steelers next week, so hopefully the Steelers will have used up all their mojo taking out the Pats.
Tomorrow is Gary's birthday and I've been tormenting him with a pile of wrapped presents for the past week. I had to put them in the closet though, because Suki felt that they should be opened early. By her.

It's actually quite a celebratory week. On Thursday, my parents will celebrate their
50th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY
Huzzah! I don't think they're planning anything exotic - Mom would probably just like to have the house clean.
Yet another occasion to add to the week's list: Trollop Stephani will be celebrating a milestone birthday on Friday. A semi-important one. A birthday that begins with a "4" and ends with an "0". Gary and I are driving up to Ithaca to spend the weekend with her. We'll do a little touring in the Finger Lakes Wineries and cook up a gourmet dinner for her that night.
Steph was kind enough to send an amusing link: Weight Watchers Recipe Cards from 1974.
Oh MY. Here's an example:
