Only 90? Well, I feel like singing!

Peggy Cooke

Tra-la, Tra-la! I don’t usually go around singing, but I am so happy that it’s only 90ish instead of 109ish today that I just feel like singing.

Tra-la, Tra-la!


Bill and I have had a running argument this summer about the temperature in our house.

He turns it up and I have to turn it back down.

I told him if he had just one hot flash he would never do that again—just one.

Since that time he has been a little nicer about it when I turn it down.

I relayed this story to one of my friends the other day and her comment was, “Well, that’s just one of the things men need to do just one time and maybe they would all straighten up!”

Can I get an “AMEN” on that?


We got one of those stupid e-mails this week informing us that we had won $2,800,000 in a poverty alleviation program from the Federal Ministry of Fiance of the Republic of Benin.


It was coming in the form of an ATM card for that amount but, sorry, we could only spend $9,000 a day with it.

We only had to pay a small “holding” fee to the person who was holding it and the amount would continue to add up to $25 a day until we submitted all our vital information.

I told Bill that we had been entered in the poverty alleviation program because they found out what our electric bill (see above) and our water bill were for this month!

Can I get an “AMEN” on that too?


This is just one of the yummy things we had to eat on our vacation.

If you’ve prepared pork loin every way you can think of and more, you might want to try this way.

This is from Wenatchee’s Sonya Womack’s daughter Wendy.

Different and very good.

Marinated Pork
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon coriander
1 tablespoon pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
Slice a small pork tenderloin
into 1/2-inch slices.
Let slices soak in marinade,
turning a few times, for a few
hours or overnight.
When ready to serve, grill
the slices outdoors or prepare
in a skillet.
