Tommy on Frog – Wed. March 30, 2016

Steve and the boys had a nice weekend in Chicago to end the Easter break. Here Tommy is shown on the frog in front of the Shedd aquarium. No jacket, Tommy?? Just checked, and the high was 66 degrees, lo 42. But, there will be rain and snow by Friday.

Paco and Tommy at Billy Goat Tavern – Wed. March 30, 2016

Steve and the boys were in Chicago last weekend and visited the Billy Goat Tavern which Steve tells me was made famous in a John Belushi cheezborger skit on Sat. Night Live.

Here is Paco enjoying a coke, or was it a Pepsi?

And here is Tommy enjoying a Cheezborger.

Here is a link to the Billy Goat Tavern. Cursor down a bit until you see the arrow to begin watching the skit.

Erin at Cheesecake Factory – Tues. March 29, 2016

I guess I have Erin programmed. She reminded me before she started eating her sauteed shrimp sandwich that I should take her picture. The photo also shows our very accommodating waitress. We always enjoy our lunches at the Cheesecake Factory. Barbara

Tommy at Sunset – Tues. March 29, 2016

This very ethereal picture of Tommy was taken of his viewing Grand Traverse Bay at sunset about a week ago. Barbara

Mandarin Orange Peel – Fri. March 25, 2016

I received a text message from Erin today with this photo. She peeled a mandarin orange using just her working left hand, and managed to remove the peel all in one piece. Then she laid it out for this photo. I had offered to peel some for her, but she said that she liked the work of peeling the oranges.

Last night Erin asked us to pick up El Pollo Loco tacos on our way home from bridge and tonight she had us bring home fish and chips from Hoppy’s both of which she ate every bite of. I was so relieved she was eating again. She had not eaten for 4 days from Sunday through Wed. She mostly slept and had kept hydrated with bottles of Smart Water.
