Needs a few more accessories: optional grey hairs everywhere, bunions, crow's feet, a mustache, chin hairs, those bumpy bits that will form in the crease under her sagging breasts, brittle fingernails, one wonky hip or knee, a few crowns or possibly veneers, reading glasses, little pairs of formerly white undies that ceased to be white after the first "accident", oddly patterned pubic hair growth after the hysterectomy, a tiny bottle of Prilosec, dry patches for her elbows and knees and a loofah, and several prepared snarky retorts for when the TSA officer looks at her and says she doesn't really look like her driver's license photo anymore.

Not all salad bars are priced the same. Look for the cheapest bar with the greatest variety of ingredients (if you have that option); needless to say, it isn't Whole Foods. Every time you choose a vegetable to top the base of lettuces, consider the weight. I like salad bars that provide a scale to the consumers so they can see how much they're getting before the tab is rung up by the cashier. At the top of the list of things the customers fail to consider by weight is the dressing. Opt for vinegar and oil-based dressings over mayo, or really, just take your own with you. It will be fresher, better tasting, and healthier than than those provided, and much cheaper per serving. If you know in advance you'll be loading up on salad from a grocery store, take your own plastic bowl with a lid and ask a cashier to give you the TARE weight in advance, so that it can be subtracted at checkout, AND provide your own dressing. This is the most economic way I know to utilize a salad bar, but I'm always looking for new tips, since I don't like going to the bother sometimes of cutting up all the ingredients for a salad.

Lately, I've been exploring the many wonderful ways to roast and eat brussell sprouts. Thanksgiving approacheth.

I would like to see the version you stick on the windows of cars or next to the door of travel trailers. Then I could just walk about with a towel draped over my shoulders...

Well, let's see... at the top of my list are the slobs; the ones that don't shower or wash their gym clothes, and/or sweat in puddles on the equipment and don't mop up after themselves. I'm not real wild about the loud cell phone/bluetooth yellers on the treadmills either.

This would be more interesting to me as a consumer were I not wondering if the turgid atmosphere a few inches above the seat weren't likewise flavoring the water. Not refreshing.

On Thursday we'll be going on our second camping trip with our old Schnoodle (he's almost 12). The first trip did not go well for him. Today I bought Bach's Rescue Remedy for pets. I'll dose him before we get in the truck. If it helps him handle the stress of the ride, I'll be using it for all trips to the vet and groomer too.

You would think Colorado would be a long way from alligators too, but we do have alligators here at the Colorado Gator Reptile Park, and facilities like that and the animal sanctuaries are always looking for donations. Surely Montana has something similar full of hungry critters. They're not picky; they'll even take chicken.
