Ron, we survived the snow storm which decended upon us on Saturday with nothing more than 8 inches of fresh snow on top of what is still all white from 2 weeks ago! Unfortunately, we had to cancel Jimmie's 79th birthday party, for road conditions were terrible. Fortunately, OTOH, I had held off with the baking and preps until 11:00am, so we will get another chance at it next weekend. Tell me, how fast does dust gather in the wintertime...? I would HATE to have wasted all that time..... The rental company was most gracious -- they said just keep all the stuff for the extra week, no charge. Good people . . . I did have a funny, though: we are to serve gyros for everyone -- I buy the meat from the Kronos wholesaler in Astoria, Long Island, and he delivers it to a local (Greek) pizza parlor in the next town, for me to pick up. The rest I make up myself. So here I was in the supermarket buying 16 ripe tomatoes .... and the sales clerk asked me if I realized what I was doing..? Oh yes, I told her, but it's for my hubby's birthday party. And then I asked her where she had been born, for her accent was quite noticable. Armenia, she replied. Ahh, I said, well the tomatoes are for gyros! Hmmn, she said, then I would have bought the cheapest........ Save your money for the kids!
