Sorry I got your dogs breed wrong! They have sweet faces, the one looks just like a Golden. They are both gorgeous. Have a great weekend!

Linda - I'm glad you liked the soup. Red lentils are not always in the aisle with the dried beans. If there is an ethnic section in your grocery store, that's where to look. The brand I use is Goya, so they're in the Mexican aisle. Red lentils have a much quicker cooking time than the regular ones, and they don't retain their shape. They're also a little sweeter.

Unlike your son, I am eligible for Social Security. I had intended to wait until I was 69 to file, but that option was taken away from me. Since I'm being paid well over the minimum wage for my part-time work, I'm going to be OK. When my hours were reduced, I'm thankful I didn't go into a major funk, because it would have been a waste of energy.

I love your blogs!!!!!

You must try to generate happiness within yourself. If you aren't happy in one place, chances are you won't be happy anyplace.

I joined your dance party at 3:30 today. I danced to You Make Me Wanna Shout! and a couple of others - about 20 minutes worth! It was fun! Hope you had a good time too! emoticon
